It came in the mail the other day, so I contacted Terry Desilets of CUSTOM BRANDING IRONS.

I decided to order a custom design, instead of the stock.

Terry was very helpful in helping me design my brand.

He’s seems like a very good person to do business with.

I sent him my signature, & he made a couple of design layouts of for me to choose from.

I chose the design I liked the best, & sent my order in.

He said I should receive it in a couple of weeks.

Dick getting a personalized branding iron is a wonderful idea.

Glad to see you wearing your LJ shirt, too by the way. :)

Thanks everyone, It’s kind of hard to think of what to say about all of these nice compliments.

I’m sure this is a tool that will get a lot of use.
