'Hi Iain, The results have been absolutely perfect. I had two damaged logos (one on each of two instruments). I undertook a bit of experimentation with the samples that you'd provided and was lucky to get it right first time with both of the Alembic transfers. They are almost indistinguishable from the original. I used the Hycote gloss (as you'd recommended) and applied around six fine coats. There was a lot of masking and there's a visible 'gloss line' but I'm entirely happy with the results. I may apply a few coats of satin gloss over the entire pickup to soften the gloss, though probably won't bother. I've attached an image of one of the pickups - absolutely superb. Thanks for your help and patience throughout - we got there with a brilliant solution and your suggestions were invaluable' (Dry Transfer Service)

'I just wanted to email you to say thank you for delivering my order so quickly! I placed my order (for 10 Obeche sheets) yesterday afternoon and was delighted that it arrived today!

I am overall very impressed with the service - I also had to phone yesterday to check I had ordered the correct sized wood and was dealt with politely and efficiently by the gentleman who answered the phone.

I am self employed making and selling dolls house furniture and I'm currently working on a book of tutorials, which is being released later this year, so I order a lot of wood and will definitely being ordering from you again!'

Ivan (Pie Architecture)


I wanted to write and thank you for your help in selecting materials for my daughter's art project.

She is entering a number if pieces for a year 9 art scholarship at her school in Northamptonshire.

The scholarship involved her picking a theme and entering 12 pieces; 6 of which have to be done at home in her spare time.

She chose the Olympics as her theme and as one of the pieces, she elected to construct a scale model of the NHS bed(s) used in Danny Boyle's opening ceremony.

On your advice, we used styrene rods and strips, as well as a low watt light bulb and power pack to add authenticity by creating a lamp above the bed.

We have now finished the bed and have only the mattress to construct.

Thanks for your advice and overall customer service.

Simon Hammerscmidt



'Many thanks for the laser etched floor you've just done for us at the National Theatre.
We're really pleased with it.'




'I've looked far and wide for miniature trees for my sculptures, these are by far the most realistic I've found. Many others I've seen are let down by cheap trunks that just look like coiled wire and 'leaves' that moult. These are so far from that, beautiful and surprisingly durable.' (50mm Oak tree)




'Thank you for your very speedy service, the order arrived today.'

John Waller

As a long time user of 4D's trees I can honestly say I have found nothing that comes close, and I've tried just about every manufacturer in the World!'
