I recently ordered my Golden Dragon Certificate from you and I just wanted to say how pleased I am with it. It was well done and I liked the old english lettering you used on it. Additionally, the card was as well designed as the certificate. The packaging was very well done and the card and ribbon/seal came in a envelope along with my receipt and the certificate was enclosed in a handsome blue display envelope which I used as backing when I framed it. It's now proudly hanging with my Shellback and Golden Shellback Certificates and I have the card in the case with my Golden Shellback card and other Navy memorabilia. If I had had any suggestions to make I would have preferred that the certificate itself and the card have been done on parchment like paper versus white but that is my only reservation. Thank you once again for providing a missing portion of my Naval service.
