Our business is making things, which in and of itself is not as common in the USA as it once was, but just making something is not enough. We need to meet the needs of our customers to ensure our continued success. We strive to exceed the expectation of our clients. Not just the big names which most everyone will know, but each individual client. We strive to make them say “wow”! It won’t happen everytime, but it is our goal!
Here is some of the feedback we have received over the last few years. We think you might recognize some of the clients and brands.
The Project – Millworks Lofts Commemorative Coasters
The Result –WDI takes pride in working with ecologically renewable resources. Both our wood and wood/paper composites are a greener choice than many other manufacturing materials. One of our newest clients approached us with an interesting project, taking renewable to the next level!
The Client – DVL Seigenthaler – A Finn Partners Company
The Project – Jack Daniels Distillery – 150th Anniversary Press Kit
The Client – Shinola – Detroit
Shinola did not send us a note on a specific product or project, but they did produce this video. We think it speaks for itself on how they view our customer/client relationship. We are proud to have Shinola as one of our key business partners!
The Result – Says Kim Shane, Marketing Coordinator:
Thank you! They look great!
The Project – Game of Thrones – HBO wanted to create excitement to launch the new season of their “Game of Thrones” series. Peter Green Design of Glendale, CA. was retained to use their innovative design approach to create a unique and fresh launch vehicle that would make people sit up and take notice.
The Challenge – A keepsake gift box showcasing the first two seasons on Blue Ray discs, sent to Celebrities, high profile friends and bloggers of HBO’s hit show “Game of Thrones.” Peter Green Design came to WDI with a pretty good idea of what they wanted to create, but had some design challenges to be worked out, such as the finish on the box as well as a release button mechanism for the slide out drawer and custom inserts to display all the merchandise pieces.
The Result – Dan Kammerer from WDI worked with Peter Green Design to solve the design challenges and create a beautiful keepsake wooden gift box. WDI also personalized each box with custom artwork and custom inserts. Says Dawn Green, “WDI was outstanding to work with! Even before we started the job, we had some confidence about WDI from looking at their website. But after working with them on design enhancements and seeing a sample of what we were ordering, we were totally blown away by the product with each one looking like a beautiful piece of art. Every single person at WDI had a great attitude – we never got excuses or an undesirable attitude from any of their people. I can’t wait to work with WDI on another wood box project and I wholeheartedly recommend them to others!”
The Result – Says David Cole: Working with WDI on this custom packaging kit was just what I needed. They were able to interpret my creative vision and translate that into exactly what I needed. I was very happy to learn that they also provide additional processes and elements – besides the beautiful cherry-wood box itself – such as the custom flocked foam insert and fitted, corrugated shippers. In the end, the craftsmanship and finish of the final product were perfect.

The Client –Outdoor Edge Cutlery, based in Colorado. For 22 years, Outdoor Edge Cutlery has well earned a reputation for producing some of the best edge holding hunting knives and sharpest edged knives right out of the box. They serve big-game hunters as well as seasonal weekend hunters.
The Challenge – When they came to WDI, all they knew is that they wanted an oak box to use as keepsake product packaging to display the 25th anniversary Outdoor Edge knife for the US and European markets. Dan Kammerer guided them through decisions on the shape, color, flocking, laser engraving and other features to come up with the design that met their needs.
The Result – Dan Kammerer from WDI worked with Outdoor Edge to create a beautiful wooden product packaging box. Says Vjera Adkins, “When I started this project, I did an internet search and contacted 5 possible suppliers. I was impressed with the response I got from WDI and realized that they were the best supplier. Overall it was a great experience. We got everything we asked for in a very timely manner and we will definitely contact WDI the next time we want wood packaging for our products.”
