I have been working with Tad over the past several weeks, regarding this review and his cases ... and this man is TRULY PASSIONATE about his business and what he does. I can tell that he puts a lot of hard work, effort and thought into every piece he does. He and his wife compete in endurance sports as well and can truly relate to catching the running-bug and the ever-growing collection of medals. You are certainly going to get FANTASTIC CUSTOMER SERVICE if you work with this company!!
About In View Designs (as taken from their website):
My Grandfather passed the woodworking “bug” onto me at a very young age. We spent hours working in his shop making furniture and hand crafted household items for our family. In 1978, at a naive 18 years old, I joined the Navy. I graduated BUD/S class 162 in 1988 and eventually retired from the SEAL Teams in 2005 after 25 years of Naval service. During my time in the Navy, my wood shop was always my first choice of mental relaxation and escape. Late in my Navy career, I met my girlfriend … now wife. She introduced me to Marathons which quickly morphed into triathlons, so I know the struggles of concentrated efforts. I quickly grew to appreciate the drive and commitment that is required for endurance and competitive racing.I noticed that my wife Tracy (an avid runner) kept all of her marathon medals in the ‘junk’ basket on the dresser. It didn’t seem reasonable for something she loves so much, has invested so much time and money in, to be randomly thrown into the abyss of woe. I gave a little thought to it and designed the first In View display case. When I gave her the case, complete with her 10 marathon medals … well … it would be difficult to describe how happy she was. Her face still lights up to this day as she looks at her case, her achievements, and relives every precious and painful moment.In View display cases are a special way to remember where we came from, what our struggles were, and also a gentle reminder for the next race or competition. These displays are also a great way to encourage your children that what they are doing is important and significant while developing long term goal setting behaviors; a must for successful accomplishment of any endeavor.It is because of several significant people that I have made it this far and I would like to thank them for their guidance and inspiration. First my wife for her love, support and patience; my children, for their constant reminders that I’m just a man; to my brother Mark Lopez for being my friend, sounding board and providing his photographic acumen; to my life-long friend Craig Rogers for his hours of contribution in my personal endeavor; to Michael Jaramillo for his web design talent; and most of all, to You, the customer, for being inspired to achieve and compete (after all, isn’t competition the elixir of life).We hope that you find In View display cases as the inspirational solution to whatever competitive challenges you have accomplished or aspire to.
