    Comments about UFO BUSINESS CARD HOLDER:

    I bought this for my husband as a conversation piece for conventions he goes to. Nothing quite says, "Stop for a sec..." than a welded steel UFO business card holder! The construction of the piece is amazing. The only thing I would mention that wasn't so great was how dirty it was when I got it. There was a dark colored grit on it that had to be cleaned before I could give it as a gift, but I suppose that is what you get when working with steel... It would just be nice to have it nice and clean when you get it. Overall, I totally recommend this product to anyone looking for an interesting gift to give to someone who is incredibly difficult to buy for!

    Service and delivery comments:

    I was very pleased with the delivery time. I had to pay extra to ensure that I received it in time for Christmas, which I probably didn't need to do, but it was worth it to see the look on my husband's face when he opened it. The product arrived dirty, but in otherwise good condition. The item shifted a bit in transit and started to poke through the side of the box, which could have been a disaster had it poked all the way through, but I seem to have gotten lucky.

      It is hilarious to watch the little alien bounce around "in space" as clients reach for my husband's business card. It has generated a lot of laughter in his office.

        Comments about UFO BUSINESS CARD HOLDER:

        Gave this to my boss on Boss' Day 10/16/2012. He was delighted by it, although the UFO is heavy, the spring is sturdy to allow for free movement. Because we work in the Aerospace industry it was especially fitting. Many thanks - will check back often for the next new Conlon creation.

          Gift was great. Only complaint is that is was filthy when we received it (looked like it came straight from the shop without any cleaning off at all - so when I picked it up and tried to wrap it, black film got everywhere).
