    Carpenter Core deserves 10 stars. They are quick to respond to inquiries, they ship out quickly, and their products are well-made. I've received rave reviews on our branded sample boxes and it's all because of Carpenter Core.

    Great communication and speedy delivery. I needed the box by a certain date and emailed Alan about it. He responded right away, and the box arrived 2 days earlier! Measurements were so accurate that everything fit in beautifully. Great craftsmanship. Thank you, Alan!

    Thank you so much for getting the box to me when I it needed for my pet Whiskers. I'm having a hard time losing her but the box was beautiful. I think it was Alan that I talked to forgive me if Im wrong about the name but God Bless! Lori
