Family Crest History
Traditional coat of arms designs date back to the 12th century, where decorating defensive shields became a useful way of identifying knights in the heat of battle. These insignia were created by officials known as heralds, who also recorded and regulated armorial bearings. Their records were known as blazons. Typically a blazon has three components - arms (the 'flag' part of the image), crest (the design surrounding the flag), and the motto (which often originated as a war cry).
I contacted Aidan with an online chat to ask about the item I wanted to purchase. He put my mind at rest and I ordered the item without hesitation. Aidan kept in contact about delivery dates. I was excited about receiving the item and it met all my expectations. So happy I choose this company and would highly recommend to anyone. First class service.
I received the beautiful family crest shield in the post this morning just in time for my best friend’s wedding . Your personalised note was a lovely touch. I was delighted to gift it to them and they absolutely loved it!!
Thanks again for the great customer service and I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family.
Wishing you all the best.
The Coat of Arms as a Wedding present to my friends came out absolutely amazing! It was truly a one of a kind Wedding gift and already hanging in their home.
Thank you for staying in contact with me throughout the process and for the craftsmanship you provided!
Aidan, you are a good man!
Our new family crest holds pole position on the wall. Thanks
It looks great
When I went to Clare Island with my daughter and saw the house (the walls were left) where my Grandfather had been born, the house his father had built with nothing but rocks and his hands, I was overwhelmed. We then saw the "coat of arms" on the wall of the Abbey, I guess it's called, I knew I wanted to be able to look at that forever. I've looked for years, and one day came upon this web site & there it was! I ordered a medium sized one for myself and a small for my daughter. I gave my daughter hers on Mother's Day with my Granddaughter (8 ears) present. I told my daughter that I have one slightly bigger and when I die, she gets mine and gives her plaque to her daughter. My granddaughter took the plaque in her hands and marveled at it. She said it was beautiful. She's right. The work is so meticulous and the sails on the ship are perfect. She held to her chest and said she loved it. My daughter does too, as do I. Thank you so much for providing this service. Mine is hanging on my wall for all that enter to see. Warm Regards to all that made this possible.
