Recognition & Reviews

We're honored to have picked up a couple awards, received thoughtful feedback from fans, and appeared in some local magazines and blog posts. 


I was so impressed with the quality of your packaging! So classy and secure. I've purchased Icons before, [and these are gifts for] two boys who live next door. I always try to get them something special that they've never seen before. Viola! They'll love these!  —Pat S. (March 2021)

Christy was amazing with my custom order. I love her work, and the turnaround was quick!  —Rose E. (Feb. 2021)

Over the years I've purchased several small prints from you. I love your company! Keep up the fantastic and creative work you do.  —Nancy S. (June 2020)

Thank you so much for your quick shipment. My daughter was thrilled to receive her gift. Your portfolio of work is amazing—I had no idea you have so many Icons available. I may need to hint about the Band Box Diner in the future….  —Alan W. (Jan. 2020)
