Thank you so much for the work that you done I received the helmet on the 24th and it looks wonderful. I can’t believe the detail and workmanship, the Greensboro Fire Department has something that they can be proud of and show off for many years to come. Thank you again so much for the great work.
Sincerely,jonathan G

 Thank you for doing such an amazing job on the CNBC helmet for me.  It was a great send off gift from my colleagues.  They know what a big firefighter supporter I am. When the helmet was presented to me, I was blown away with the creativity and workmanship. I am anxious now to get it back after your recent tweaks. Michael H. Friday, March 27, 2009 3:43PM

that helmet is INCREDIBLE!!!! it looks so fantastic, he is absolutely going to love it!! I really appreciate all your hard work and getting it to me before the last day that I needed it, i cant stop looking at it. I really just want to give it to him now because he would be like a kid in a candy store with it. I have given the cards out to a few of his firefighter buddies and they will be checking your website out after our wedding this Thursday. Thank you so much again!! He is going to absolutely love it!!!!!!  Lindsay C

Thank you so much for the helmets, they look AMAZING! You did a wonderful job! I received the Colts helmet on 12/23 and the Marines helmet on 12/24. The finish on both of them were fine. My fiance and my brother absolutely loved them, they were almost in tears. Thank you again and I will definitely recommend you to my friends. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and have a great New Year. Tiffany S Dec 29, 2009 12:16 PM
Just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work on the helmet I ordered. Despite the mix up everything came together just in time and my father was very touched and very surprised!  Everyone was amazed at the detail of the pictures, especially the truck on the back! I sent back the other shield so you should receive it shortly. Thanks again and Happy New Year! Jen G Dec 28, 2009 9:39 PM

Thanks so much dale for the firehouse buddy helmet it is awesome i cant wait to display it at my reading event. thank you Ivan. Sat, May 28, 2011 12:16 AM
All I can say is "Spectacular!" I just got the New York Mets/Airborne helmet you made for me. Exquisite detail, beautiful craftsmanship, and genuine love of art went into this. Thank you. I will go to Citi Field in Queens, N.Y. and really root for my beloved New York Mets. As a Paratrooper, New York Mets fan, and a proud New Englander I must say that you did a great job on all the Army's unit patches as well. The old school Mets logo looks fantastic! I will commission you to make a New England Patriots helmet for me in the Fall. Thanks again. Airborne All The Way! Dave W.Fri, June 3, 2011 2:59 PM
The helmet came in yesterday and is an astounding piece of work. I brought it to the firehouse to show my brothers and every one of them had to hold it in their hands and I was asked repeatedly for information regarding purchasing one of their own. I was out of your cards within moments and many were typing in your webpage even as I told them to find it at Smokeeatercustoms.com
It will be displayed prominently center stage at our 9-11-11 dedication of the memorial our dept has erected using a beam given to us that came from the south side, 20th floor of the North Tower. Thank you for the service you provide and the honor and respect for our brotherhood in which you provide it. Brenda B Sun September 11, 2011 6:01 AM
