The Studio by Danielson Designs: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis The Studio by Danielson Designs will provide my husband a great way to display family pictures on his new desk at work!


One personalized frame from The Studio, an adorable picture of my two daughters and a desk to display our new creation.  About The Studio:


Annie had a designer’s eye with years of background in product development. Mark ran his own woodshop designing and building custom furniture. Mark’s brother, Aaron, sported a newly minted MBA. How could we blend these into a mix that would provide employment opportunities for our community?

Annie hit it first. Somewhere in the back of her left brain she was seeing a picture frame. We built her one. She painted it. Ooooooh. She painted another. Aaaaaah. She painted another. We were in business. Well, almost. Some customers would be nice.

Eighteen years later we look back on those early days with wonder. That original handful of hand-painted picture frames has been for quite a ride. We’ve become one of southern Colorado’s largest employers. We’ve been voted Wall Décor Company of the Year, recognized with a Stevie (The American Business Awards) for Best Corporate Social Responsibility Program, been listed regularly among the fastest growing companies in our industry and secured a place on the Inc5000.

On the Studio website you can personalize decorative signs and frames in minutes, which will then be shipped to you within days. It’s the perfect stop for thoughtful gift givers who have always sought out those one of a kind treasures. It’s also great for creating just the right piece for your home. Finding exactly what you want has never before been this simple and affordable.”


As I looked through the many options at The Studio, I was floored by how many items I truly loved!  How was I going to choose?  And then, I saw a picture frame “From Daughter, To Dad” and instantly knew that my hubby would love it.  Personalizing the frame was incredibly easy.  All I had to do was fill in a small form with the personalization information and even got to change around the colors a bit!  A preview of your item instantly appears so you can be sure you love it! Not sure what to write on your item?  No worries!  Danielson Designs has many inspirational quotes to jump start your imagination!


Check out was simple and I received a confirmation email instantly.  The very next day, I received an email that my order had shipped!  WOW!  In fact, the website says that ALL orders ship within 48 hours of your order!  My frame arrived only a few short days later and I was amazed!  The quality of the frame is first rate and the personalization was perfect!  After inserting a picture of my daughters, I knew my hubby would LOVE IT!


The Studio by Danielson Designs far exceeded my expectations!  The selection, options, prices, customer service and shipping were all wonderful.  The Studio has great gift ideas for baby showers,  weddings and holidays!  In fact, if you shop now until September 12, you may take $10 off your order if you use the code NOTSO upon checkout!
