Product : 2 shields and a plaque shield

Your experience : Loved working with Taylor's tins on my custom shield the process was quick easy and they were very professional and took the time to really understand what I was wanting and made it happen. I've already had my shield in multiple fires and it's still holding up like brand new. On another shield they made an amazing plaque for a fallen firefighter we had earlier this year and it is truly amazing. I will forever be apart of the tins mafia.

Product : I have bought 2 tins and a t chain

Your experience : My experience was amazing. When I had my first tin made, I was always kept well informed throughout the process. The second tin I ordered was a special one it was designed after my father's old leather front. I sent a picture of that front and within the hour I had the initial design of my order. I will always recommend Taylors Tins. The quality is second to none and I will never go back to leather.

Your experience : Taylor is great. Customer service is bar none. The aulity of the tins and what Taylor can actually do to bring your dream into reality is amazing. Trust me, I’m a leather guy, but for the product Taylor puts out, its worth the leap into the metal industry. I will never go back to leather as long as Taylor is in business.

Your experience : I messaged the Facebook page with my vision and had a reply same day. Once he understood what my vision was, he had a drawing sent back the next day (or sooner) and I had minor changes I wanted. The small changes were made and another drawing sent back same day. Quick, quick service. Once I was content, I paid and a day or two later I got the tracking number for the package. Overall from design to delivery was a total of a week and a half max! Since having the tin on my helmet, I have had multiple compliments and guys asking where I got it! Very impressed with the service and the product!
