In it's heyday (1993 - 2007), my studio, A Thousand Words, worked with hundreds of retailers and private customers. Many purchased the standard product line, which changed several times annually. Others were bold, adventurous, and willing to try new things, and were pleased with the unique results. Here is a partial list of happy folks. In time, new and exciting projects and possibilities presented themselves until we shut our doors, and headed into the future.
