John and Jim,
Thank you so much for all your help. The girls loved the bookmarks!! Especially Beverly, she said her name usually has "beaver meadow" attached to it. She said it's a treasure. All the girls said "thank you", including myself!
I had been looking for name meaning cards for several months. I specifically wanted CHRISTIAN name gifts, which are very hard to find these days! While searching the web, I came across this site and knew immediately I had found the right place. I needed 5 different names, and I needed 4 of each one. The pricing was extremely reasonable, especially when ordering by the dozen. I called the number and explained my situation. I was making life story scrapbooks for my mother and two sisters (and of course one for myself!) I felt adding the Christian meaning of each of our names would be, not only unique, but a way that I could express the love that I was feeling for each as I made their scrapbook. John and his staff were very nice and genuinely interested in my project. I was amazed at how quickly I received my order, and very pleased with the quality and detailing of each card. I have not finished my project yet, but I am already thinking of ordering more cards for friends and family. Thank you CrossTimber, for helping me to complete this very special project, and may God richly bless your enterprise and the Witness you are providing.
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven." Matthew 5:16
Also I plan to order cards for my sisters and for mom for Mother's Day, and my dad for Father's Day. Thank you so much. I love giving a gift with a meaning! I will visit the website before I order.
God bless your ministry,
Thank you again for your help in creating this special gift. I look forward to receiving and giving it. Thank you for sharing your gift & availability to create it.
Enclosed, please find a donation for a name meaning magnet for the name of "Arianna." Also enclosed is my self-addressed stamped envelope.
Your story is a great example of making a tough situation into something good.
What an inspiration!
I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for the name plaques you created for my 30th Birthday Prayer Party. I really appreciate you taking the time to make sure all 13 women had an individualized name plaque. They were so grateful for the gift and the thought and dedication that went into each one. It was a very touching moment as they each opened their gift with the name plaque's inside. Thank you so much for working on such a short notice to help me make this special day so memorable for me.

Thanks for doing this for us! We know the grads will love them!
Have a great day ~

I would just like to say a huge thank you for the wonderful bookmark I ordered from yourselves. I recieved it yesterday. To my surprise, I also recieved a second one in my name and another with in my husbands name, which is fantastic.
Your kindness and very fast service is very much appreciated. How wonderful and fantastic they look.
I have been looking for bookmarks with CHRISTIAN NAME MEANINGS for my teen girls Sunday School class. I was excited to find your website and the possibility of ordering the bookmarks as Christmas gifts. I was concerned about finding specific uncommon names but John assured me that he would be able to find their meaning. The bookmarks are beautiful. With a turnaround time of only a few days, I received them in plenty of time for Christmas. I have left bookmark samples (extras that John sent) and business cards at my work place to spread the word. Thanks John for your help.
I like to give unique birthday gifts to co-workers, but since I work with twenty people the cost can add up if I'm not careful. I found this website and thought the magnetic bookmarks would be a great, very reasonably priced gift. I ordered for everyone for the year, and I was so pleased when I received them. They are amazing! They don't look "cheap" at all – they are very professionally done and will be a gift I'm proud and eager to give. In fact, I ordered more this weekend for everyone in my book club.

I have always had a name meaning plaque by my bed since I was little. I like knowing what my name means. I've been wanting to get one for my husband for many years, but I didn't know where to find one. I found other web sites that would do name meanings, but they weren't Christian name meanings. I wanted the Christian meaning of my husband's name. I did a google search for Christian name meanings and found this web site on the 4th page. I was so glad to find it. You had exactly what I was looking for. My name meaning plaque has a plain background, I liked that I got to customize the background of my husband's plaque. My husband and I are very pleased with the name meaning plaque. He now has his by his side of the bed. Thank you so much.
Hey John, thanks for getting back to me about the Name Plaque for Angela. It looks awesome!
I'm getting this for my Sweetheart. I have waited 30 years for God to bring me a girl like Angela. Even in my own mind I couldn't have picked out someone more perfect for me than her. She is amazing to me and I am in love with her! The Bible verse on the plaque is her favorite scripture in the Bible. She told me a few weeks ago she actually just memorized these 4 verses that I am getting on the plaque. Her favorite color is pink, so the lettering and the picture of the plaque is going to be perfect! I am personally a very detailed oriented individual and I really want this to be a special and meaningful gift for her.
I really do appreciate all the help on this to get it just right. It says a lot about your character. I just want to say thank you for that. I am excited to give this to Angela! I know she will love it!
The kids at church love the bookmarks! What a unique keepsake for them to remember class this year. I bought little cross charms and fastened them to the end of each bookmark so it'll stick out of the book. Had to add my own touch, but they are beautiful without, too. What a great product. So affordable, but so special because they are custom-made.
Thanks so much,
I met your wonderful family at the Cincinnati home
school convention this weekend and purchased
half a dozen of plaques from you. I am confident my
friends and family will treasure the gifts forever.
Thanks. God bless you!
Thank you for the beautiful Plaques and Bookmarks. I was so impressed and pleased with the fine craftsmanship that went into the project. I have been passing on the cards here at work and the people seem very interested in getting plaques for their children. I believe that they preresent more than just a plaque with a name and meaning; they are truly an inspiration from the Lord. We know that God gives men ideas to inspire and influence the destiny of others, which I feel these plaques do; I know that these plaques can help to shape the lives of the people they protray.
THEY ARE GREAT! -also very reasonable.
Thank you so much for the beautiful plaque. I was very surprised. My body is in PA, but I left my heart back in Ohio. I miss the RTL group and the work that small bunch of people accomplished.
Some of the best friends I ever made were there, and I still have to come back and get my "friend fix." I know everyone works hard and I was compelled to show my appreciation.
Thanks again - you brought a smile to this transplanted Buckeye's heart.

I received the Bookmarks and NameCards today. They are beautiful! What
a precious gift. Thank you so very much! I'll contact you next year. You've
got a happy, satisfied customer!
I've recieved the bookmarks. Thank you so much for your attentiveness, as well as the generosity. I'm praying that they are a well recieved gift for this family that is very dear to me, and perhaps an avenue for softening dialogue regarding faith. As with so many people, they've been victimized by "religiosity" via certain unstable family members for most of their lives, and as a result have withdrawn from anything that reminds them of the counterfits they've encountered. I haven't known where to begin or how to keep my genuine concern for them from being percieved as pushy evangelism, but I've felt sure that cards with their name meanings would be one of the least threatening things I could do for a conversation piece. Thusly, I'd spent a good year searching every Christian and novelty store I could find trying to find them, until I finally resorted to searching online. It may seem like a small thing, but I've always felt that names are very significant. God had the habit of re-naming people throughout the scriptures as he opted to use them. Abraham, Sarah, Jacob, and the Apostle Paul come to mind off the top of my head. Names obviously bare a great significance to the Lord, so it seems to me they should be significant to me as well. I do appreciate your ministering in this area.
I spoke with the family I ordered the gift for today...they got it and they love it.
Lucas & Lora
Thank you Thank you Thank you.
You finished the bookmarks in record time and I couldn't be happier with them.
I can't wait to put them in their owner's little hands. I'm sure they will be a source of encouragement to all.

We asked Cross Timber to design a food label for our up and coming bbq sauce. The experience has been fantastic! The staff is very professional and worked hard to create the right label for our business. We will definitely work with them in the future and recommend their services.

"CrossTimber is a great company to order from. My shipment of 18 name-meaning mugs arrived quickly and are beautiful! The custom design was the best part for me. I was able to get mugs for lefties and unusual names or spellings were not a problem for John. Picking the background or colors to fit the personality of the person was an added bonus. I will tell my friends and family about this company!"

A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver
and gold. The rich and poor meet together: Yahweh is the maker of them all.
By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.
Hi John. Just want you to know that at dinner last night I asked my wife what the highlight of her day was, and it was your phone call about the name plaques. You treated her well, that's what counts.
Lucas & Lora
Thanks so much for the discounts…. it just got better and better the more name gifts I added! I started to think of names of people I’ve known all my life to see if I added them all to my order, I'd get so many discounts that it would be free! – well, I didn’t really…but it is really great to receive such great discounts.
Thanks so much for the enjoyable shopping experience, John. You’re a lot of fun to deal with. Your family is just beautiful and I pray showers of God’s provision for your new home and in your business which is a blessing to many!!
All because of Christ!!
Ordered 52 Bookmarks
The customer service was extremely friendly and helpful in answering all my questions and giving me some additional suggestions.
Thank you John,
You and yours have been more than considerate with this whole order. Sure wish everyone could "catch" what you have with running a business. What a witness!
Thanks again for all you have done to make this such a smooth transaction.
Merriest of Christmas to you and yours and a safe and blessed 2010.
Le Center, MN
Thank you John,
For your prompt response to the problem with our order. I've been delighted with your customer service and we will continue to use your services in the future months and we will not hesitate to recommend your site to others. Thanks again, and God Bless.
Judy & Shannon S.
I highly recommend CrossTimber. The customer service is outstanding. They took a personal interest in my needs and went above & beyond to help me with my order. They’re very friendly and helpful. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to encounter them and do business with them.
John, we enjoyed meeting you at the National tournament and appreciated your ministry and kindness to all. May the Lord bless you, guide & direct your path, may He make His ways known to you (ps 103) & keep you from losing heart (II Cor 4:16) as you fix your eyes no on what is seen, but on what is unseen, the eternal.
Correspondance about an order lost in the mail:
Thank you John again for quick responses. You can't imagine how many companies take days if not weeks before you ever get a response. I thank you also for resending my order. I can't imagine the post office running this slow but things happen. Thank you for handling this in a professional and polite manner. It means a lot to customers. :) I will look forward to the order arriving this weekend. Kimberley S.
I know what you mean! Companies can tout "great customer service", but then they lie in their advertising and provide very little customer service; especially if it takes from their bottom line.
I've been in business since I was 13, and I've dealt with dozens of companies who do NOT believe that a good name is to be chosen above great riches. Orders like yours -when complications happen-, give us a chance to build up our good name.
But even more important than our good name is the real reason that we serve our customers: Jesus said, "'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'"
I expect to have your bookmarks done today, and out in the mail tomorrow morning. Watch for them on Saturday.
At your service,
Kimberley's response on Saturday:
I received my order today and I just wanted to say thank you soooo much. These will be the perfect gifts for my coworkers and can't wait to give them at our christmas party. Again, thank you for your continued professionalizm throughout this entire process. I will definitely recommend your company to others seeking these one of a kind gifts.
Thank you again from a satisfied customer ;)
John, just wanted to let you know how much we like the bulletins you printed for us. The quality is exactly what we were looking for; the colors are vibrant and the paper folds beautifully. Better yet, you were able to save us a significant amount of money compared to other quotes we received. Thanks again!

The bookmarks came Saturday just as you said they would and they're beautiful!! I can't wait to pass them out Wednesday, along with your business cards! I'm also gifting my codirector and 2 special friends with the crosses. One is going in our Sunday School room!
Thank you so much for all your help!! God continue to bless you and your ministry at CrossTimber and I will be sure and spread the word about you!
THANK YOU! THANK YOU!! for your help!! You are always so helpful and kind!
Congratulations on the house and amazing 'accomplishments' in your life in the last 18 months! That is truly amazing, and I could not be happier for your family. It sounds like God is truly blessing you, your ministry, and your family! I pray that #3 will definitely be in the near future for you! :) Children are such a wonderful gift from God, and this is a fun (even though tiring!) stage of life!!
We actually named our second son Logan Jameson...I absolutely LOVE the name. It fits him perfectly!!
I really appreciate all the details, verses, and meanings that you sent for the names. My husband and I have been praying over them the last few days.....I think we are leaning towards Noah Walker. I thought it was really neat how the two names were 'somewhat' related in their meaning. I'll have to keep you updated on what the final decision is! :)
I just love names and think it is such a huge gift/responsibility that God gives us in naming our children. You have truly been so helpful! I searched high and low on the internet to find a website that gave spiritual name meanings and God directed me to your site and it is literally the ONLY site that I could find that gives spiritual meanings! I am so thankful for all of your help!!
Thanks again...I've included a picture of our family...Jay (John Carl) is the oldest and Logan Jameson is the second!
I got the bookmarks in the mail and they look wonderful. I can't wait to give them to my students. I gave my kids theirs already and they are so excited. I want to thank you once again for all of your help with making my order perfect. You provided a high quality of customer service that is hard to find these days. I will definitely recommend your site to others and will be back for more of my own personalized items in the future.
Have a great day!
