"[A Shadow Box] is one of my favorite gifts that I have ever received. It was a complete surprise that brought me to tears! Sam worked with my husband to create this gorgeous piece of art. And while the finished piece is slightly different than the original picture, Sam’s keen eye and creative thumb helped to make this beautiful commission what it is! Sam is an incredible, down-to-earth, talented local artist and we look forward to adding more pieces into our home!"

"I am a frequent flyer to Sam's work and every single time I am in awe of what he has created. I am big on Thank You's and in recent events I have owed a lot of those. Sam always manages to go with whatever I throw his way and again it leaves me amazed and those I gift them to end up talking about it forever. His work is incredible and one of kind, you will not be disappointed, I promise."

- Jordan G.

"When I reached out to Sam with a commission inquiry, I was looking for a special way to capture and commemorate the joy our young pup, Port, who we lost at just 8 months old, brought to our lives. The finished piece is a stunning work of art, and Sam’s execution and attention to detail was flawless. Port’s shaggy muppet-top, his “furniture”, and the soulful yet mischievous sparkle in his eyes, every detail was captured, somehow, in this incredible piece that we cherish."

"I had an old piece of barn board with a mill stamp from our 1850's farmhouse that I wanted to display. I contacted Sam to commission a piece which would frame out the board. He went above and beyond to display a pretty rough board in this beautiful and elegant shadowbox. Sam was very accommodating in allowing me to bring the board to the shop and custom cutting the board to fit the piece. I am so excited to display this piece in our house and look forward to working with Sam again!"

"I cannot begin to express how talented Sam is. I reached out to Sam to create 2 pieces - one for my parents & one for my fiancé. I just received the piece that was created for my fiancé and it is INCREDIBLE. Absolutely perfect. The detail & time that went into creating such a beautiful piece of art is shocking. I had sent photos of my idea and it turned out better than the actual photos. I will 100% recommend Sam over and over again! I cannot wait to see their faces once they open them on Christmas morning!"

"Thank you Sam! I have purchased many shadow boxes from Sam Macy Designs, and each time I am blown away by the final product (and so are the recipients!). Each time I gift a box to someone, I am so grateful, you turn moments into memories, that will be cherished for a lifetime!"

- Ashley S.

"I purchased a shadow box for a house warming gift for a dear friend who had lost his wife earlier in the year. Sam was beyond thoughtful and considerate throughout this process to create a one of a kind piece of artwork. The process to create a commissioned product was seamless and timely. Sam was easy to communicate with and responsive to all of my inquiries and questions. The transition from outline to product is quite remarkable. I am so impressed with the attention to detail and quality of the shadow box. I couldn't be more pleased with how beautiful the final product turned out.

"We absolutely loved working with Sam. He is so talented and makes each step of the process simple and straight forward. His Shadow Boxes are beautiful and are the perfect unique and creative gift. Looking forward to working with him again in the near future!"

"Sam created a beautiful piece that I gave as a newlywed gift to my cousin and her husband. The picture he recreated was one of the couple, holding their new puppy on their wedding day. He did an incredible job listening to my request for detail on certain areas of the image, and bringing everything to life. He went above and beyond in the detail, and even added a stone on the brides finger that looked just like her engagement ring, and sparkled like it too. I couldn’t have asked for a better finished product!"  

- Summer S.

"A friend of mine posted a piece she had commissioned by Sam Macy, and I loved it so much I ordered one for my dad for his birthday. I am so happy with the way the artwork turned out and I can't wait to give it to my dad, he's going to love it. I now want to take pictures of my children and have Sam design a piece for each child!"
