60 Lions on the Prowl!

For our client Gifts for Good, Would Works made 60 custom engraved desk plaques with these hand-carved lions from Ghana.  This was our first international craft collaboration! We had a great time working on this project and are pleased we made some happy customers to boot.

At Gifts for Good, we are hired by clients for numerous custom gifting opportunities - all for gifts with a social purpose. Would Works, one of our wonderful Cause Partners, whose participants make beautiful boards and other items we sell and often add into custom gift sets.

Recently one of our clients needed a custom award. We sourced hand-carved lions from one of our Cause Partners artisan shops in Ghana and then worked with Would Works to laser engrave a base and attach the lions which we then put into gift boxes for recipients.

The awards came out beautiful and Would Works is always so easy for us to work with. Thank you to everyone on the team for making this project a success!
