I ordered for the first time from Ed & Dawn last week.
I was extremely happy with the box that my postman left for me on Saturday....now I have to start making more writing instruments!
(I spent most of the weekend creating a heat exchange for brewing beer...then brewing a couple batches to make sure it worked properly...we'll find out in 6 weeks)

I really can't say just how impressed I was/am with the gang in Racine. I'll be ordering more in the future.

Just added them to my resource list........customer service is a thing of the past for most companies, it will be really nice to talk to a phone rep who doesn't act like I am interrupting there day instead of the reason they have a job!

I have been customers of Dawn and Ed before they became "Exotic Blanks", I have nothing but praise for them in every respect, they have always treated me as I believe they like to be treated, with respect and compassion.
THANKS DAWN AND ED!!!!

I also have nothing but good things to say about Ed and Dawn. They are always there and always ready to help any old kid that comes along in need of help with a difficult material. They are quick to send freebies and even faster to send your order. I will order from them for years to come hopefully.

I can't even tell you all the little things they have done to put a smile on my face. All of the above is noticed and appreciated. I wish them the best in their endeavors. These are just facts that I am stating and if this is considered a shameless plug for them, so be it.
Regards, Doc

I should mention we are reading and seriously enjoying this thread. Thanks to all--Dawn will comment, but she's looked embarrased all day and keeps "Googling" "Get a life"!

I agree with everything in this thread. What scares me is Dawn knows how to read minds. More than once I passed by a blank, trying to keep my order within reason (not easy to do) and more than once, I received that same blank as a Freebie Yippie. So you all better watchout and think good things about Dawn.

Oh yeah, that is what this thread is about. Thinking good things about Dawn. :)

I am one of the fortunate one's that lives close to Ed and Dawn and let me tell you, they are ALWAYS welcoming and working! I have shown up at their place at 6:30pm on a Wednesday and have not left until 8pm and they have always been gracious. So with that being said:

Ed and Dawn,

I usually do not post. Mainly because I still feel a newbie to this craft. The amount of help and guidance you both give is remarkable. Many of the freebies you have given me (and I suspect everyone else here) in the past make me try new kits or techniques. Most have turned out good.

Thank you.

P.S. I have not forgotten the blanks you have given me and told me to turn and then post here. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I can get that done. I finally think I can take decent pictures.
