Hi Simon, Last Thursday (10th) was the evening we presented our Station Manager with his framed copy of "On the Rebound". The reaction from him and the volunteers at the event was fantastic. Everyone thought it was an excellent idea and a lovely looking gift. It really made the presentation very special. So thanks for sourcing the 45" and for doing such a lovely job of mounting it etc. Cheers, Helen

MyFirstRecord was the third website I looked at and opted for it because the exemplar products looked fantastic which I felt held an edge over its competitors. I was also drawn by the personable description of how the bespoke service was established and my subsequent experience is that the business really cares about the product and the way it is delivered to the customer.

My experience with My First Record was perfect from start to finish. I ordered the Framed Vinyl Single and needed to have it within two weeks (I'm not only a procrastinator; I'm an indecisive procrastinator, which is even worse!).  Simon was very communicative, responsive and understanding.  He shipped the framed single that day (from the U.K. to the U.S.) and provided me with the tracking number.  The product arrived with a couple days to spare and was just perfect as I had expected.  Everything was packaged very well and there was no damage to the product at all, which is impressive considering the distance it had traveled.  I would definitely recommend this site to anyone who loves music and / or personalized gifts.  And I will definitely order again.  Thank you for a terrific experience!
