We share with you below excerpts from a selection of e-mails recently received from collectors we have served around the world.  Thank you to the hundreds of clients who have written us letters, cards, and e-mails in appreciation of our efforts on their behalf.   We appreciate and value your patronage and will continue to do our best to earn your trust and business and provide the best customer service possible - just as you should expect. 


Roy, first off let me say, “What a fine job of packing!”  Super ingenuity and very fun to open.  Birthday Girl Tami very happy to see these.... Wow.  And I was not expecting her fist pump and emphatic “Yes!” when Ciel was unwrapped.  We are so totally thrilled that you shared that with us during the visit.  It is truly an honor to take custodial care of your treasure.  Thanks, Roy.  Based on my experience you are First in Class!  Tip of the hat to you, Sophisticated East Lansing Gentleman.  Our very best to you.  Joshua (Indianapolis, Indiana)

Thank you, Saper Galleries.  We were so pleased with the framing!  Blessings to you all ~ Lisa (Lansing, Michigan)

Dear Rebecca and Roy,  Attached is an image of the [framed Mikio Watanabe] on our wall!  We think it looks beautiful and will enjoy it for many years.  We're so impressed with you and the special experience you provided.  We hope to do business with you in the future.  Thank you for everything!  Regards, Nancy and Bill (Woodbury, Minnesota)

Dear Mr. Saper,  I received the two [Joanne Isaac] etchings safely today.  They are lovely!  I will make the frame soon and enjoy them.  Also, thank you very much for the information about Ms. Isaac.  I will also enjoy reading them.   I appreciate all of you showing kindness to me.  It was the first time for me to order something from the foreign countries directly and I could enjoy itself thanks to you.  Thank you very much again.  Best regards, Keiko (Nagoya, Aichi, Japan)

Thanks ... to you and your exceptional team.  I couldn't be more pleased with the end result [of the framing you did for me of the police uniform and patches]!  Tonia (Lansing, Michigan)

Thank you, Roy, for arranging the postage and purchase [of the Daniel Merriam book} for me so efficiently.  After a first look through I am most impressed with the production values and can’t wait to get thoroughly lost within its pages tonight and onward.  Daniel’s genius is without peer and his imagination obviously has no boundaries.  I know it will be a treasured work in my library.  Kind regards,  Julie (Nairn, South Australia)

Good evening Roy,  I got [the David Royce glass] and it is perfect!  ...It is as beautiful as I envisioned.  Sincerely, Rozalia (Larkspur, Colorado)

Roy, allow me to express my thanks for the opportunity to see your gallery and meet you today.  This all may seem somewhat grand as you read, however it is with the utmost authenticity that I send the message.

Prioritizing travel during my life, I have always looked for beautiful and personally appealing art.  Many galleries, many cities around the world.  Those experiences and “finds” are some of the most memorable parts of my life.

Today may top the list.  In Lansing, of all locales (no offense intended, just so relatively close).  Your collection of works is, without exception, the finest I have enjoyed viewing.  Bear in mind that I have a certain style and artist influence which may be unusual and anachronistic, however clearly you share some of my art passions.

Wow.  What a find.  ...Accept my enormous appreciation for what you shared today with me and Tami.  What a pleasure, sir.  You were so welcoming and genuine.  My best to you.  Josh (Indianapolis, Indiana)

I just got [the Marcus Uzilevsky]!   Beautiful.   Thanks.  Ron (Cathedral City, California)

Dear Roy,  Just got [the Dr. Seuss]!  I so appreciate your professionalism and efficiency....   Many thanks, Ivy (New York, New York)

Thanks, Roy, [for the Jiang].  We look forward to doing more business in the future!  Matt and Anne (Shaker Heights, Ohio)

Hi Roy,  Thanks for [the] great, swift service [with my Rob Gonsalves order].  Regards, Dermot (Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, United Kingdom)

You did an incredible job on the artwork; it's just amazing what framing does....  It looks like a museum piece of art.  You guys did a wonderful job, as always.  Rick (Rockford, Michigan)

Thanks [for the Gonsalves calendar]!  And the handwritten note in French is a very nice touch.  Have a nice day, Agnès (Vanves, France)

Thanks, everyone!  I love [the framing}!  [The framing] is beautiful, Roy -- perfect in every way, and a cherished memento of the time Tom and I shared in Puerto Rico just one year ago.  Thank you....   Meri Anne (East Lansing, Michigan)

Dear Roy,  Mazel tov on 30 wonderfully successful years, contributing so much to the cultural life of our community.  All the best, Liz and Don (Haslett, Michigan)

The pieces that I have had framed by you and your staff are always beautifully done - and we always find just the right frame because you have such a large selection.  Thank you again!!  I have two more pieces almost done so will see you in the new year.  Judy (Holt, Michigan)

Good morning Roy,  Thank you for the follow up.  I appreciate the care, attention to detail, excellent work and outstanding customer service you and your staff displayed.  The sentimental value of the piece reframed is far beyond any earthly value.  I knew I had taken it to the right place after my initial encounter with your staff and that judgment was proven correct after seeing the quality of work performed.  My mother is most pleased and we are grateful.  Happy holidays,  Dan (Grand Ledge, Michigan)

Thank you so much [for framing the seascape].  Beautiful work!  Lisa (Lansing, Michigan)

Hi Roy -  I love the mandala that Jennifer framed for me.  I will certainly be back to Saper Galleries [again] the next time I need something framed.  You are the only place I would trust with a piece that I value.  Blessings to you all.  Nancy (East Lansing, Michigan)

Hey Roy,  Thanks very much ....  Saper Galleries did an outstanding job with the custom framing, and you're so right, the museum glass makes such an impact.  I was able to get the painting on the wall in advance of my dinner party; needless to say, my guests loved the art and the framing.  Thanks very much for your time and great advice.  I'll be sure to stop in with my next custom-framing project.  All the best and take care.  Ryan (Lansing, Michigan)

Hi Roy,  Thank you again for all of your help with my [MSU Arts and Cultural Management class] project! It was so much fun and so interesting to learn more about the gallery and how it differs from a non-profit.  I just wanted to let you know that I received 100% on the project, and it’s all thanks to you and your willingness to sit down with me and teach me about how the gallery functions and what your role is.  Thank you again, and I’m sure I will see you soon.   :) Steph (Okemos, Michigan)

Hi Roy,  The [Method Light 200] is fantastic. It’s just what I was hoping for.  I will be ordering more soon! Thanks for your quick service!  Grace (Cornelius, Oregon)

Roy…our client ... absolutely LOVED the art piece you commissioned and Bruce Bleach created. They are talking now about where to hang it for “best exposure” (their words!) and it sounds like we’ll be either part of that or will take or receive photos once it’s put up for all to enjoy.  Thanks to you for all your hard work on this one, and please extend the same to Bruce.  I look forward to a future opportunity to create one for another customer!   All the best, Angela (Lansing, Michigan)

Dear Roy,  I can't possibly thank you enough for the amazing way you opened your gallery to [6-year old] Morgan and me.  Your kindness, time, incredible instruction and patience are unparalleled.  Morgan learned a great deal from you.  She will be sending a thank you drawing to you as soon as her mother returns from Detroit or sooner if possible.  You provided inspiration to a very young child that she will never forget.  With highest regards,  Susan (East Lansing, Michigan)

Gosh, thank you!  Your [framing] staff were excellent and I will be back!  Pam (Michigan)

Hi Elisa,  The Tom Stoenner vases just arrived and they are beautiful.  Thank you, and everyone else who helped, for taking the pictures I requested and just being genuinely helpful and nice.  I would not hesitate to do business with you again.  I pray you are all blessed a hundredfold!   Sincerely, Elizabeth (Tyler, Texas)

Roy: It occurs to me that being in the gray and dreary Broad and then walking into Saper Gallery is like the moment in The Wizard of Oz when the film goes from black and white to technicolor.   Our friends were so appreciative of the time you spent with us and couldn’t say enough about how much they enjoyed their time in the gallery.   A.  (East Lansing, Michigan)

Hi Roy,  Your staff did such a beautiful job and we figured out the most beautiful frames for each piece.   I had delayed framing them for two years thinking they would cost a fortune.  They were very reasonable.  I guess the frames were from a new line so it was good I waited.   Martha (East Lansing, Michigan)

Thank you to Mr. Roy Saper from the Saper Art Gallery in East Lansing as you made our day on March 10th.  What started off as a simple trip to the gallery to see a new exhibit by artist David Herzig turned into something magical as after asking if someone could be available for a few minutes to talk to us about what art we were looking at.  After a brief wait, our host passionately came around the corner, and with his wealth of knowledge and love for the arts, Roy filled our hearts and minds with a greater understanding of the watercolor exhibit we encountered and all of us walked away in awe!  Thanks Roy, we will be back!   Crosaires Residence, (Williamston, Michigan)

Hi Roy,  Thank you for judging [the art competition] and for taking the time to look closely at the students' work through an artist eye.  We could not do what we do without help from wonderful people like you.  With Much Appreciation, Tammy (East Lansing, Michigan)

Mr. Saper,   I can't thank you enough for spending time ... to find the title [of my Alvar] for me.  Very few people ever return an email nowadays, and I see why your customers love your gallery.  Thank you again for taking the time out of your busy day yesterday to help me.  It really means a lot. I know if I every want to buy a piece of art you are the store I will becoming to.  Epic customer service.  Brian (Pennsylvania)

Hi Roy,  Thank you so much, again and again - this Eickholt [glass] is amazing, and now that I've seen it on the LED stand, I honestly don't think we could live without it!  My husband loves it, and we both think it's breathtaking!  Father's Day evening we set it up and just sat in my husband's office for a while and stared at it. We couldn't get over how beautiful it is and all of the detail. What a talent Robert Eickholt has - it's a shame he had to retire!  We both love it, and your customer service is impeccable, as I mentioned before.  I'll definitely keep you in mind for future purchases.  Take care and hopefully I'll talk to you again one day soon, Leah (Denver, Colorado)

Mr. Saper,  Just wanted you to know that the Gonsalves arrived safely and our [son] loved it very much! Thanks for all your help in getting this lovely gift to our son!  Delores (Kingsport, Tennessee)

Roy,  I don't know if you send an e-mail to everyone who gets something framed at Saper Galleries, but you have exceeded my expectations!  I was first "wowed" when your staff provided three frame options in about 20 seconds.  The variety of frames you have is incredible. And, the fact that I didn't have to hunt through them to find a pleasing option was even better.  ...I'm also a fundraiser at MSU and I'd like to thank you again for the many ways you make MSU a better place.   Thank you for the e-mail!   Warmest regards, Karen  (Williamston, Michigan)

Good evening all!    I could not possibly be more pleased with the way this latest piece turned out! The olive wood frame works perfectly with the photo, and I can't thank you enough for suggesting it!  Don't know how you do it, but you always seem to work a special magic into each project I bring you!  I can't thank you enough!  Regards, Mike  (Lansing, Michigan)

Thank you Roy!!  [The Gonsalves print] was a gift for my boyfriend and he loved it! Thanks for all your help!!   Georgina (Turramurra, Australia)

Roy:  I was at Jeff's the other day to see his new home. Wow! Just looks like LA. He has a number of your pieces and one is a blue iridescent bowl [by David Thai] on his dining room table. It is just fantastic. You are so good at selecting pieces for him.  Just want to tell you we all loved it.  David Thai's work is beautiful and does look like molten precious metal.  Just outstanding. As always you have such an eye. We are fortunate to have you bringing such a wonderful selection to East Lansing.  Joyce (Bath, Michigan)

Hi Roy-  The frame looks great. ... As always, you did top-notch work.  Take care,   Zack  (Okemos, Michigan)

I sincerely mean that East Lansing is lucky to have you.  ...To add to an outstanding night, Nathan opened all of the frames he picked up last night and said that he will never be going to go another business for framing. The work done by you and your staff truly exceeded all expectations.  Nathan and I will both do anything we can to steer others in your direction!  Thank you again!   Sarah (East Lansing, Michigan)

Hi Roy,  Your gallery is lovely – really, really, lovely.  I found myself being inspired by so much of the work you handle.   Thank you.  Laura (Mason, Michigan)

Roy:  Your staff did an amazing job [framing this special project]!   The ... daughter, for whom we created the gift, was overwhelmed with it.   It’s now safely on display somewhere in California.   We will keep you firm in mind whenever we need a framed item.  Count on that!   Thanks for the great service!   Ed (Lansing, Michigan)

Roy,   WOW!!!!!!    Thank you so much!  This [Robert Eickholt hand-blown glass egg] is gorgeous, and also the biggest egg I have in my collection… possibly that I have ever seen.  Just wanted you to know that I received the egg about 30 minutes ago and love it.  Thank you for everything!!   Nancy   (Powder Springs, Georgia)

[Your speaking to my class at the gallery] was--as it has been in the past--absolutely splendid.  What a gallery you have, and what a gift for sharing your enthusiasm across groups of people.  Thanks.  Laura  (East Lansing, Michigan)

Thank you very much.  I am very happy with the framing -- it adds beauty to my Sister's wonderful work.  I will be back as I have a special photograph of a Giraffe in Kenya and want to get it framed.  I have always been very pleased with your work.    Judy   (Fowlerville, Michigan)

The [two framing projects you completed for us] truly are beautiful.  Thank you all!  Karen   (Haslett, Michigan)

Hi Jennifer,   Thank you very much for the careful packaging (as always) of both pieces.  They arrived safe and sound.  The Eickholt was an anniversary gift for my in-laws and the Ruth Bloch piece was a birthday present for my wife.  Both absolutely loved them.   I really appreciate how friendly and professional you and the staff at Saper Galleries are.  I have not always had the same experience with other galleries.  You have definitely earned my loyalty.   Thanks again,  Josh  (Torrance, California)

Dear Mr. Saper, Thank you so much for making me feel so welcome in your lovely gallery, a "Heaven on Earth" really.  I have enjoyed my visits to your gallery and I am very grateful for the services all of you have provided.  I will put the [Ruth Faktor] art I purchased from you in a special spot in my house and think of you and East Lansing with the fondest memories.  Your work is very important!  Keep at it and keep in touch!  Best, Loucia  (Nicosia, Cyprus)

Dear Jennifer, Nathalie, Liz and Roy,  Thank you so much for the absolutely beautiful work you did framing the picture for my daughter and the elephant embroidery.  I love how both of them turned out.  I can't wait to give my daughter her gift, made more beautiful by you.  I am very grateful.  Most sincerely, Nora   (Okemos, Michigan)

Roy, I would say [the Stephen Duren painting] is stunning!  Please thank your staff for the excellent framing job.  Every time I walk by the painting, I stop and admire it!   Sally (Lansing, Michigan)

Dear Mr. Saper,   I have had a number of pieces framed at your gallery, and have yet to be disappointed! The results have always been above and beyond my expectation. Your staff is extremely friendly and always anxious to assist, making much-appreciated suggestions regarding various framing options.
 
This particular piece is to be a wedding gift. The artist had written a congratulatory note to the couple on the back of the canvas, and the person who framed the work (I believe it was Liz) created a window in the dust backer so the the inscription can be read. This extra attention to detail is very much appreciated! It makes my gift very special indeed.
 
It is truly a pleasure doing business with you folks! Thank you all!   Mike (Michigan)

[The Paul Braslow Astarte sculpture] arrived safe and sound.  It looks fantastic.  I can't believe how fast it came!    Anne  (Traverse City, Michigan)

Hi Roy,  Bill and I so enjoyed our time in your gallery and we are thrilled with our purchases.  Bill is excited about discovering a Michigan artist that intrigues him in Barbara McCleary and I have been a long time admirer of Kathleen Chaney Fritz and her truly amazing talent.  We are both so pleased!  Thank you also for taking so much time with us.  It was a joy talking with you.  I appreciate that you included the links to Barbara McCleary and her story.  We will think and take numerous photos through this season at our cabin in Charlevoix and contemplate the idea of a commissioned work by Kathleen in the future.  For the time being, we are so happy with the enhanced [Kathleen Chaney Fritz] Brand New Day giclee.   Thank you once again for a lovely visit on Saturday and we hope to stop in again in the near future.  Carol (Fort Wayne, Indiana)

Hello Roy,  It was such a pleasure to visit your gallery and we were touched by your warm welcoming. Your gallery is a delight and we will make sure that our friends visit it.  We ... are looking forward to see you again.  Convey our warm regards to Autumn and Jennifer.   Felix and Emilie!!!  (East Lansing, Michigan)

Roy,   Many thanks to you for obtaining these wonderful Ponsen paintings.  You may remember I have been a fan since I saw the exhibit mounted years ago of some of his work by Kresge and Muskegon art museum and the others.  And your staff really helped assist Diane and me to obtain just the right one for our featured wall.  It looks perfect.  You may not know but Diane and several of her siblings own a cottage just south of Pentwater, MI.  Almost every time that we visit for one of our summer weeks up in Oceana county, we love to drive through the old and working orchards in the area and this painting is thus part of our memories and a wonderful complement to our and our children's' lives.

And let me complement you on having two such able assistants.  They were both cheerful and helpful.  They really know how to assist the customer to make an appropriate choice and then to have it matted and framed with such personal touches and professional care and skill.  I ... visited several times to find the right Ponsen, took several home to show Diane how they looked in our bedroom, and then brought home potential mats and then frames, and then they helped me to pull it all together at your excellent shop.

You really have a very special art gallery and I have thoroughly enjoyed the years of wandering in to look at your occasional special shows and regular first Sunday art walks' displays.  Again, thanks.  Happy holidays to you, Jennifer, Autumn, and your and their families.   John (East Lansing, Michigan)

Hi Roy,   Thanks very much for the update on the Renoirs!  They look great!   ... I'm pleased with the work and service your gallery has provided.  We sure enjoy the newly matted artwork done by Autumn and Jennifer.    Cheng-Yuh (East Lansing, Michigan)

Thank you Roy.  You and your staff and the [painting conservator] you have selected are the best!  I could not believe how wonderful the painting looked, really quite a shock to realize how muted it had become over the years.  Warmest wishes to you ... Peter (East Lansing, Michigan)

Hi Roy.  I must say, you and your team are delivering truly amazing customer service!  Roy, you are a star. ....I have already told 2-3 business associates about how great your service is.   Kirk (Marcum, Canada)

Hi Roy!  I love your latest Eickholt additions.  I like to see what he is up to and you have the best offering of all the galleries who carry his work.  Plus....I really love to purchase from you, my favorite gallery!!!   I thank you, again, for your wonderful service and I'm grateful to get to know you.  Lynn (Tennessee)

Hi Jennifer,  [The Ruth Faktor ceramic] came yesterday and we love it!!  Boy, was that wrapped safely and securely - I felt like Houdini trying to break in to see it - the anticipation just kept building!   I love Ruth's tiles - now we have two!!  It will look great hanging on the backsplash above our cooktop.  It was a pleasure talking to all of you.  Thank you for your help.  There are other works of art on your website that look appealing - we will keep your gallery in mind as we look for other ways to spiff up our home.  Thanks again!   Warm regards, Gail (Centennial, Colorado)

Dear Roy,   Thanks so much for your kind message.  You really make an art of customer service and it is much appreciated.  We love the Gleadow piece and are grateful that you gave us the opportunity to “test drive” it!  It was also very helpful to be able to pay over three installments.   We will look forward to seeing you the next time we are in Michigan.   All the best from Connecticut,  Andy

Hi Roy - Just a quick note to say the [Rob Gonsalves] calendar arrived today and is lovely.  Thank you to you and your team for packing it so carefully.   I am sure my husband will be thrilled at Christmas!   Best wishes, Liz    (Leicester, United Kingdom)

I just checked your site and saw all the FABULOUS AWARDS!   CONGRATULATIONS!  This is SOOO wonderful!  You deserve this and more for your beautiful gallery and the flawless manner in which it is run and perceived by the public.  Add to that your generosity in giving information to the public in general and to individuals like me and your tireless support of community art and there is no surprise that you have received these accolades and more!   Congratulations, Roy!  Barbara (Okemos, Michigan)

Your generous giving to our community's nonprofits has introduced to me her wonderful art.  ... Thank you for offering our community such wonderful things to own and give to others.   Sincerely, Joyce (Bath, Michigan)
Roy,  A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of roaming your gallery as the local 'drum circle' provide rhythmic accompaniment.  I have been in a few galleries around the country, but i never feel quite as at home as I felt walking in the doors of your gallery.  I loved the diversity of art and artists.  As I think back on the experience what i remember most is the dynamism of color through out.  You have a keen eye and your choices of art to display certainly agrees with my palette.  I just wanted to say I enjoyed meeting you and the eye-feast your art provided.  I look forward to another visit soon.   Sincerely,  Robert  (Dallas, Texas)

Hello Roy,   Thank you very much for your assistance. I do really appreciate it.   You definitely should come visit.  Let me know if you need any advice. We have many interesting art galleries in Moscow.    Best, Sofia  (Moscow, Russia)

Roy,  Thanks for working so diligently to make this [special art commission] happen within the short time frame we have until our event.   Dale (Lansing, Michigan) 

Roy,  The [Randy Cooper shadow sculpture] got here as promised, and it looks great!  We are playing with lighting and shelving options, and will probably have a custom glass shelf made to fit the space.  Thanks for all your help.  After we get all the parts and get it up, I will send you a picture of it in situ.  Ed  (Williamsburg, Virginia)

My thanks to you, Roy.  The Gonsalves books are breathtaking.  I shared them with friends and associates at work.  They were enjoyed by all.  Regards, Fred  (Long Beach, Indiana)

Roy,    Thank you so much for the appraisals -- on time, professional, with uninflated valuations.  In these days of internet commerce, transactions do not always go smoothly nor are the results often what one bargained for.  Working with you was the antithesis of this and again I thank you for your excellent work, produced within the necessary timeline.   Gratefully,  Karlyn (Sandy Hook, Connecticut)

Dear Roy,   Thank you so much for your help. You have been wonderful to work with.   ...The beautiful [Shona] sculpture arrived in perfect condition.

Dear Roy,   ... The painting looks wonderful, doesn't it?  We are thrilled, and it is a joy to see it on our wall.  With your guidance, and the skills of your staff, we have a piece to treasure and, someday, to pass on.  As for our visits to your superb gallery over the years, we wouldn't consider anywhere else.  As we mentioned to each other, no matter the question or project, one needs to go to the experts, and experts you all are!  Meri Anne (East Lansing, Michigan)

Good evening, Roy.  The [John Baughman artwork] arrived.  Please thank John for the awesome drawing and kind letter.  Of course, I must have a [Baughman] Cascade [painting] now so please keep me posted on availability.  Thank you ... for making this acquisition easy and rewarding.   Sean (Charleston, South Carolina)

I just love working with you and hope you have a wonderful holiday season full of many blessings.   Fondly,  Lynn (Tennessee)

Hello Roy,   My son LOVED your finishing  treatment of the artwork he gave me.  His only regret was that he did not have you frame and mat his treasures from Greece!  Hats off to your staff who patiently worked to find the perfect matting and then were able to complete the project on such a short timeline.  It meant so much to me.  Thank you again for your kindness and expertise in preparing this special gift from my son.  Valerie   (Okemos, Michigan)

Thanks to you, Roy, for having such a wonderful collection from which to select unique pieces.  Your gallery is a terrific resource in this town and we are privileged to have your artistic competence.  I love it that my friend from Seattle, now living in NYC for her sabbatical, was able to select special pieces from your gallery.  From what I hear, it looks like a Dr. Seuss could be a next purchase.  Thanks for working with her!   Cass (East Lansing, Michigan)

The [Tunis Ponsen paintings] arrived Tuesday and ... [they] all look fantastic.  Thank you!    Courtney   (Bentonville, Arkansas)

The [framing] presentation of the puppets is outstanding.  The framing is so elegant, yet Jennifer has allowed the puppets to "speak for themselves."  ...

Thank you so much, Roy.  I am very excited about these [Eickholts].  ... I can't explain why his work captivates me so much.  I guess it's just as simple as the fact that his work is so beautiful.  I really appreciate your amazing customer service, and love your web site.  You have amazing works at your gallery.  (and later:)    The beautiful vase arrived today.  As expected, I love it and it's more beautiful than the photograph.  I love the separation between the base white color and the swirls of brown and blue plus the anemones.  That characteristic is what drew me to the rock paperweight that I also bought.  As always, your service is impeccable and I thank you very much.   Best wishes,  Lynn  (Tennessee) 

Hello Roy,  Well a very exciting day for Sherry and I.  We just received the [Bill Mack Elusive Virtual Relief] safe and sound and no damage from the shipment.  Thank you again for helping us and for getting her to us safe.  We really appreciate all your help and have enjoyed talking with you.  There were no extra or unforeseen charges, which again is thanks to you for filling out all the proper [export] paperwork.  We are going to be looking again this fall to fill a couple walls ... and yours will be the place we will be going to in the future for any artwork.  Once again thank you for your excellent service and for making this a very exciting day for us.    (And later:)  Thank you again for all your time and efforts with our beautiful "Elusive" [Bill Mack Virtual Relief].  She truly is gorgeous. ...

Dear Jennifer,  The Sandell and Tarkay arrived.  I am speechless.  The Sandell  is beautiful, stunning, and framed perfectly.... The only way I can  describe my reaction is to tell you that my jaw dropped and after a looking at  it for many minutes, I did a "wing span" hug around the edges of the  frame and kissed it several times.  Yes, I AM in love with this  Sandell.  I knew I would be.  It is magnificent.  I love Tarkay as you know.  I'm looking at "Red Hat" as I am writing  this to you, and I am in awe of the beauty.  Many levels of that.   I am so pleased.  Must have taken hours to "pack" these two pieces.  Outstanding  job and I thank you for your expertise in doing this perfectly.  Thrilled, once again, with Saper Galleries.  Pat (Hershey, Pennsylvania)

Oh my goodness Roy.  This [Eickholt glass] is beyond stunning.  I'm so glad I splurged again.  I LOVE this piece.  I never imagined the beautiful glittery bottom ... and I love the shape.  This is amazing.  Thank you for another wonderful transaction.  You're the best!!!   Lynn  (Tennessee)      (and later:)  Thank you Roy, Jennifer and Nathalie.  My collection is amazing.  I can only have such a robust collection because of the fantastic prices.  How amazing to have these prices with such incredible pieces.  I really enjoy looking at the pieces.  I have some in my office and I receive compliments regularly.  I've given a few pieces as gifts and have had really positive responses to these gifts.   Thank you....]

Thank you so much. The [Volker Kuhn constructions received] are wonderful. ... you are so easy and pleasant to work with.  We can't thank you and Volker enough.  And hopefully I will be emailing soon to buy the British Flag one.  Even better, I would love to one day visit you and your gallery.

Dear Roy, What a wonderful afternoon you treated us to at the gallery!  I know I speak for all of us in thanking you for so generously sharing with us your enthusiasm for art and your 'pearls of wisdom' in being careful about art purchases.  It was truly a delight.  Sincerely, Liz and Don  (Michigan)

Dear Roy, We can't thank you enough for sharing your vast knowledge of the "Art World" with "The Seniors" on Wednesday afternoon.  It was truly wonderful and very much appreciated by all of us.  Sincerely, Betty (Michigan)

Just wanted to say that I never dealt with someone as quick as you are!   Nice doing business with you Roy!   Linda (Quebec, Canada)

Roy,  thank you so much.  I know my brother, Jeff, will be thrilled to receive it.   I want you to know that all my interactions with you – and your gallery – have brought joy to my heart.  It’s not often in this day and age when one truly experiences that – I believe the Lord brings special people into our lives to remind us that He is here, sovereign over everything, moving in the hearts of his people.  I clearly see Him in your kindness and graciousness.  You and your gallery are like an “oasis in a dry and thirsty land”!!   Most sincerely,  Sharon (Virginia) 

Dear Roy, Jennifer and Nathalie,  The vase arrived today and all I can say is WOW.  I can't get over how gorgeous this vase is.  You were so right about the iridescence in the yellows and it is beyond stunning.  I am so glad I didn't wait too long to buy this.  I love it.  Thank you so much!!!   Fondly,  Lynn (Tennessee)

Dear Roy, Nathalie and Jennifer,   I just unpacked the two Herzig's and the Tarkay.  I am thrilled, a bit speechless, due to the beauty of the three pieces.  The framing is exquisite... it is beautiful, perfect for the piece, and worth every cent.  Your excellence, care and advice for your customers is certainly superior and I thank you for that.  Another BRAVO to Saper Galleries.    Pat (Pennsylvania)

Jennifer, Nathalie and Roy - Kim and I thank you for your patience in helping us decide which frame to select.  Then we asked you to finish things within a very short time frame.  Everyone was so gracious and accommodating.  Thanks to all of you.  We really appreciated your support.  Diane (Michigan)

Hi Roy,  Thank you so much for your warm hospitality and your help enabling our visit.  You have a lovely gallery with a wonderful assortment of work.  I'm a retired art teacher and now full time artist myself and it's great to see places like yours flourish.  Keep up the good work!   Judy (Ohio) 

Hi Roy, Jennifer, and Nathalie:  Thanks again to you all for the excellent rendering of the map.  We had
guests over for dinner last night and, needless to say, the beautifully framed map on the wall was the center of attention.  With kindest personal regards and best wishes for the holidays.  Carl (Michigan)

Hi Roy,    My order arrived today.  Very impressed with the service, thanks.   Merry Christmas to you.   Regards,  Mike (Surrey, United Kingdom)

Roy, ...Jennifer and Nathalie both were a huge help with my decision on which frame and mat to use that will best bring out the picture on my budget.  Their knowledge and understanding were both welcome and appreciated.  ...Thank you again for all of your help and understanding when I came in there.  I am the first to tell anyone that asks that I do not know the first thing about art in any way, except for the fact that I know what I like when I look at it and how it makes me feel.  All of you went out of your way to make sure that I did not feel foolish in my ignorance in buying a painting.  I will definitely come back there again and will recommend you to anyone who asks if they are looking for any type of art.  Thank you again.   Sincerely,  Ed  (Michigan)

To Jennifer and Nathalie -- I wanted to say thanks so much for the assistance selecting a new frame for our Barbara Roberts McCleary painting.  We are SO PLEASED with the new frame and the "new look".  It's really spectacular!  Johnny said the new frame gives a different perspective to the painting - he feels like he is drawn into the scene.  Things are coming together in [our] house, thanks much to your help!   Julie (Michigan)

Hello Roy, To let you know both the ceramics have arrived in perfect order this morning Sydney time.  The larger one  is now in pride of place in our lounge room.  It is absolutely stunning.  We have rough brick walls, so it suits the ceramics.   Thank you again for your attention and prompt service.  Hopefully I will be a customer again at some stage.  Cheryl  (Sydney, Australia)

Hi Roy!    First of all, I must tell you David RAVED about his Redwing framed artwork, and many hours have been mulled over trying to decide just where to hang it.  It was the HIT of the SURPRISE party :-)  (well, the ice cram cake was pretty popular too!!, but the Redwing frame was the center of attention)  Please, please, please thank Jennifer for all of her hard work and creativity!    David and I will be stopping in to personally thank you again, but in the interim I just wanted to drop you a line and thank you ever so much.   Warmly,  Karen (Michigan)

Thank you again.  We are very happy with the new portraits in their beautiful frames.   Sincerely, Deborah (Arizona)

Hi Roy.  I just wanted to let you know that the vase arrived today - a day ahead of schedule!!!    ...It is drop dead gorgeous.  I imagined that it would be beautiful, but had no idea how rich the colors would be.  I'm a huge fan of that deep cobalt color, and this is just stunning.  Thank you so much.  I just love this piece.   Best Wishes,  Lynn (Tennessee)

Dear Mr. Saper,  Thank you for an incredible archival framing job you did for me .... of Avedon's solarized photo of John Lennon.  Your suggestions for the mat and frame were perfect.  It's stunning!  One of my friends who had never seen it, stopped in her tracks upon entering the room where it's hanging, and after a moment said that it took her breath away. You and your staff are the best.   Rita (Michigan)

Hi Roy,   I am writing to thank Saper Galleries so very much for welcoming the Broad Undergraduate Academic Services Team to the Dr. Seuss exhibit last Friday.  It was the perfect ending to our Winter Advance!  Jennifer did an awesome job of leading us on a tour of the exhibit and addressing all of our questions.  She was the perfect hostess.  The exhibit was thoroughly enjoyed by all.   Thank you once again for coordinating this "field trip" for our Team.  I am confident it is an experience they won't soon forget!   Warmly,  Peggy (Michigan State University)

Roy,  Cathy and I were very pleased with the [framing and paper restoration] results.  The framing is excellent.  Also, the conservator did an excellent job on the old Lincoln print.  It looks better than before the damage.   Thank you for your assistance and excellent work.    Frank (Michigan)

Hi, Roy,  We continue to love our two Seuss pictures!  Thanks again for all of your gracious help, and the fabulous framing skills of your staff, which made it possible for us to have them in our home.  Cheers, Bob (Michigan)

Hi Roy,  I love the art!!  The mostly blue one knocked my socks off.  It’s awesome.  The other one is great too.  [The framers there] did a wonderful job.  Tell them thanks for me.   Wendy (Michigan)

Roy,  Thank you so much for taking time from your busy day to give me information about my art items.  It was very helpful.  Please know that I very much appreciate your kindness.  You offer the community such wonderful opportunities: We are very fortunate to have your wonderful gallery and your expertise locally.  Your Dr. Seuss presentation was awesome.   Thanks again.  Betty (Michigan)

Hi Roy,  [The Volker Kuhn] turned up yesterday and i love it!   Thank you.  Amanda (England)

Hi Roy,  Got home from work and opened up the print. It is absolutely gorgeous.   Thanks again,  Lynn (New York)

Hi Roy,  Just letting you know the Ruth Faktor [ceramics] arrived yesterday ... in perfect condition so thank you again to those who packed them.  Thank you also for going out of your way to purchase the magazine.  It has been a pleasure dealing with you.  I admire your professionalism and prompt attention to my many emails.  I am sure we will talk again soon.   Warm regards, Judi (Australia)

Thank you, I love [the Alvar].  Your service was terrific and I'll likely buy another.   Karen (Virginia)

Roy,  The gallery is so wonderful.  The quality and diversity of the art to look at can sweep you away to another place.  Our friends from Arizona were very impressed.  We enjoyed our visit immensely.   Cheryl (Michigan)
I went to two other frame shops and your prices were about half of theirs.  You should tell people that your prices are less than Michael's prices even with their half-off coupon!  I'm telling my artist friends.  Maryann (Michigan)

Roy, [The framing] looks wonderful.  Can't wait to get it on the wall.  Kathie (Michigan)  

Thanks Roy -- the [installed] pieces [by Bruce Bleach] look fantastic!   James (Michigan)

Hi Roy,  We are back from the cruise and celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary!!  A wonderful time and the Delacroix went over great just before we departed.  Thank you for all your efforts in getting the Delacroix dedication.  We appreciate that very much.  It's up on the wall and being enjoyed.  You've been a pleasure to work with.....MANY THANKS FOR EVERYTHING.  Best regards. Charlie (Virginia)

Dear Roy,   Thanks very much....  The framing has been beautifully done--as we knew it would be.  Yours,  Michael  (Michigan)

Roy,  The frame for the Kurasov giclée is just right and I can't wait to get it on the wall.  The final product (framed giclee) exceeded my expectations.  Great job!  As a consumer, I value individual attention and sharing of professional expertise, timeliness, quality, courtesy, and friendliness.  Saper Galleries delivered on all counts.   Thanks to you and Nathalie for the great experience.  I'm sure we'll meet again.  Kind regards, Deb (Michigan)

The Delacroix has arrived and looks great!  I continue to be very appreciative of your services, particularly since the pieces I've purchased have been rather nominal; however, you treat me as if I just bought a $45K original.  It's a pleasure to work with you and I shall look forward to continuing the relationship.   Charlie (Virginia)

WOW!!!  You folks do work miracles.   Many thanks for all you do for your customers.  Joan and Bill (Michigan)

Delacroix's painting is exactly what I wanted and you made it happen!  My very best to you and your associates!    Nick (Baltimore, MD)

Thanks for all of your excellent service and I will surely be ordering more Gonsalves books again soon =)  JuLio (Canada)

Mr. Saper,  Thank you so much for allowing us to come and visit your beautiful art gallery.  What a memorable experience for my students!  Many of them have never had the experience of being in an art gallery.  Many of them do not have fabulous male role models in their lives either and you were a fantastic role model to them.  I truly appreciate the time you took out of your very busy day to spend an hour with me, my intern and my students.  They have not stopped talking about it.  The discussion you led them in was so valuable and it went along so well with what we are currently discussing in class.  Thank you for the opportunity and for the complementary copy of Rob Gonsalves book, Imagine a Night.  I read children's books to my students to begin discussions and this is a great addition to that library.   Stacey, Resource Teacher, Haslett High School

Dear Roy,  Thank you for the fast shipping & handling.  I really appreciate it.   I will be happy to call on you again for any future purchases.  Best regards, Goele (New York)  and later: The gift was a big success!  Thanks for the quick shipping; it is very much appreciated.  It was a pleasure doing business with you.  
Thanks for your work on this appraisal.  I always appreciate how professional your appraisals are.  Always a pleasure working with you.  Ron (Michigan)

Hello Roy,    Just want to let you know that I received A Change Of Scenery today, June 11, 2007 in perfect condition.  I want to thank you for going out of your way in giving me the UV-filtering acrylic and the extra care in packaging the artwork.  It's already hanging on my wall, and I'm very pleased with your great service.  I would definitely do business with you again when time and money permit.  For now, thanks again, sir, and take care.  Aloha,  Barry (Honolulu)

Thanks to both of you, Jennifer and Roy, for an outstanding effort in bringing my painting up to the stately condition an officer of the French 1st Empire deserves!  It is already displayed in a place of prominence and the quality of your work surely shows.  Jim (DeWitt, Michigan)

You have a wonderful business, Roy.  When we get past some financial priorities, we do plan to look towards purchasing art on a more frequent basis.  We love your place and the warm hospitality it presents.  Your business is definitely another one of those unique reasons for living in the EL area.  And your framing choices and craftsmanship is unsurpassed.   Sincerely, Jim (Michigan)
