Customer Testimonials

We just received our Board of Director awards, and we absolutely LOVE them! We selected Rivanna Natural Designs for many reasons: affordability, selection, a personal referral from another nonprofit and because they believe in supporting people and the planet, just like we do. We chose the Arbor award and were able to get custom artwork done exactly as we wanted. They were delivered much sooner than I expected them to be, and they came in some really cool eco-friendly, professional packaging. Amazing work by Rivanna designers and team! We will definitely be sharing with others and look forward to an opportunity to use them again.

Rivanna has really impressed me with their quality of work, attention to detail and quick turn-around and being a fellow B Corp is an added bonus.  It was such a pleasure working with Gretchen Wirth and her team, professionals from beginning to end.  Thank you for the excellent product, we are very pleased!

The awards were treasured by the recipients, prized by the other finalists and admired by sponsors and organizers. From our perspective, this was one of the most environmentally responsible ways to honor sustainability efforts of students, teachers and schools.

Kelsey Hurst, Water Environment Federation 


Rivanna has been terrific to work with. Because of our company's focus on supporting sustainable lifestyle, we wanted products that were made from wood that was certified from responsibly managed forests.  We are thrilled with the product and their speed and service have been impeccable.

PETA commissioned Rivanna to design and create custom awards for our 25th Anniversary Gala & Humanitarian Awards show in Hollywood, CA, September 11, 2005.  At this event, we honored Alec Baldwin, Morrissey, Ravi Shankar, and other animal advocates for their efforts to create a more compassionate world. The awards were beautiful and well received.  Throughout the project, the Rivanna team was professional and attentive, and genuinely committed to the success of our event. We are pleased to recommend Rivanna Natural Designs and applaud their commitment to cruelty-free products.

Scott Anderson, PETA


We chose Rivanna Natural Designs because of their commitment to purchasing sustainably harvested wood and environmentally friendly materials in their craftsmanship. The wall plaque they created for us is a beautifully crafted piece constructed of handsome FSC-certified hardwoods and recycled glass. It is proudly displayed in our lobby area and has received many compliments.

Gifts from Rivanna Natural Designs are a big hit with our customers. Their hand-turned red maple pens are stunning. Our customers frequently comment on the quality of the products and the thoughtful and tasteful environmental packaging.  It is a pleasure to be able to purchase high quality, environmentally friendly products that are made by hand in the United States.

We were thrilled with the quality and design of the awards Rivanna Natural Designs provided for our annual technology awards.  Our winners were impressed with the quality and uniqueness of the award.  We were at a tradeshow the following week where one of the NCTA 21 Award Winners had their award displayed at their exhibit booth.  They wanted to show it off!  NCTA hopes to start a tradition with these awards!
