"As many of the other reviewers have written, the coloring is too light on the writing that is inserted...i.e. name, date, and location. It appears that the main design and writing is done prior to the writing that the customer can insert, and the result is two different shades of etching/burning. I even sent a note to red envelope at the time of purchase indicating that I wanted darker writing. I guess even after all of the reviews they cannot manufacture this product with consistent coloring. Also, the wood is just a piece of oak with a metal band around it, so it looks somewhat unfinished. I feel like I could add a stain or something to the wood to make it look more authentic, but don't want to ruin it. Overall, it is a great concept, however the end product is not what I was expecting."
