Personalized Memorial Candleholder
I ordered this vase as a surprise for my fiance to honor his parents. The first vase had a barely visible inscription, replacement was inscribed on the back side. Very unhappy with the product

engraving does not show up. cost too much for it not to sjow up.
I would not recommend this to anyone. For the price you should definitely be able to read the engraving on it. That was the whole purpose of the vase. To honor those that could not be at wedding but couldn't even tell there was any engraving on the vase. I could gave found a plain vase cheaper anywhere!

Get what you pay for
My father always said " you get what you pay for".
The glass is a great size. Bigger than what I excepted but the quality of the personalization is awful. First of all the name was engraved on the backside of the glass( not by the wording.) The font size is so small you would a magnifying glass to read it.

Although the holder was much bigger than I expected it was still beautiful!

Not what you pay for
I got this candle holder to honor my fiances decease brother.They ended up having to replace it for me because the first time I received it, the name was so small I could barely read it, and the filler from the etching was rubbed off on the edges. The SECOND time I received it, the name was still so small we could barely read it, and there is NOTHING they can do about it. I am in no way satisfied with my purchase of this memorial candle holder!

This was a great purchase in regards to the product I wanted and cost effectiveness however the writing was to small for the product and very difficult to read.

Very good poem
I ordered this for my wedding after my aunt passed away. The poem was heartfelt and beautiful but the personal engraving was worthless, With glasses and a magnifying glass I was still unable to read it. I filled it with sand to make the writing stand out a little better but I am still disappointed. I call OTC and they did apologize and for that I am thankful. I hope they correct the problem.

Personalization is terrible
I understand the concept of "you get what you pay for" but the personalization on this was really terrible. Since the quote on the glass is already pre-done (and of course looks perfect), it absolutely magnifies the fact that the personalization part is so bad. It was barely legible, and also off-center.
I have purchased other items through Oriental Trading for my wedding and have been happy with everything else, this is the only item that is not going to be used.

Personalization is poor
I bought this candle holder to light a candle for my father at my wedding. I thought it would be the perfect touch to remember him by. The candle is nice and the engraving that is already on the glass is beautiful but the personalization looks like it was done by someone who didn't care what it looked like. You cannot see the name or dates engraved unless you look closely and even when you realize it is written on there, it loos sloppy. I am sad that I have to send this back and look elsewhere.
