     The
Jupiter box came out great! Thanks very much. I've posted photos of it on Alphadrome to show it off to everybody. Really nice work. I really do not usually buy reproduction boxes but this fantasy box was a special situation. However after seeing the condition of the boxes you make I might just fill those few gaps in my collection with a few more of your great boxes.

      Thanks for the prompt shipment for the repro boxes. They're the best I've seen and I've seen a lot of repro and original boxes. The artwork is sharp and you even have the correct gloss (shine texture). They're even better that the ones I bought from you 4 years ago. Thanks for the discount coupon. I will be ordering more TrueReplica™ boxes from you soon.

      Hello Dan...Calypso Joe is here and a beautiful piece. What great graphics and colors. Looks original and without all the creases and bends!!

April 2004
 
      I just got home and opened your package. The only thing I can say is that I am overwhelmed. The Howdy Doody box is incredible! If I didn't know you made it.....
     I have to tell you that I have Howdy displayed on a marionette stand and in a sealed dome (how is that for dedication?). Now, I have to put the box in a sealed display case to boot!
     Thanks for the excellent work! I am one satisfied customer.

February 2004
 
      I just wanted to let you know that I received the Nichols 38 Box today. All I can say is WOW!!! You did a beautiful job on this. How do you guys do this? It's really superb!!! I couldn't be happier with it and it is beyond my expectations. I will definitely refer you guys to other Nichols owners.

      Many thanks for sending me the Mercury Space Capsule TrueReplica™ Box and also for the speedy delivery. Top marks for your excellent packing -- it arrived in perfect shape!
      The box itself can only be described as awesome. The repro quality is superb, without a single visible flaw, and it looks (and feels) perfect in every way -- right down to the staples! I would defy anyone to show me a better replica than this.
      I normally display boxes at the back of the shelf, behind the toys themselves, but this box looks so good, it'll need a place right at the front!

January 2004
 
      Got the Kooky Spooky Tree and Skating Chef boxes today ... safe and sound. What great reproductions. Probably are better than the originals. Very nice! Love the colors.

January 2004
 
      I just got the boxes unpacked, and they are awesome! I really like what you did with my original boxes, too ... you made them look almost like new.

November 2003
 
      Just wanted to tell you I received the package today. Love the two boxes, Lunar Spaceman and Fighting Robot and the Robert the Robot light. I've never seen quality like that on these boxes. I'll be ordering a couple more soon of boxes I need.

      Just received my Hartland Box & Authentic Tag you made for me. I just have one thing to say: Double WOW !! It's a good thing you put your printed mark on the inside otherwise it would be an Original. Really it's like Technicolor better than the real thing !!!! If anyone should have any questions of the quality of these products please feel free to have them get in touch with me. You know how they say give 110%, well I received a 110% box !!! Thanks So Much !!

      The Happy Fiddler Clown and Hoopy the Fishing Duck boxes arrived safely, & they are fantastic! I am so impressed and very pleased. I hope you will make a ton of money for your wonderful work from my originals. Please stay in touch as I will with you, it has been a great experience knowing you through cyber space!

      I'm a professional artist. I'm also a toy collector. Recently, I loaned Dan some of my original boxes to be reproduced for his line of Repros. He provided me with a sample repro to compare to an original. It was incredible, to say the least. Dan had told me his copies were better than the originals. He did not exaggerate. The color was clean, clear, bright and true. I spent ten years as an artist for Hallmark Cards. I learned about quality and producing the "very best". Dan produces the very best!

Re: Space Patrol Rocket Lite
      I had no idea you planned to build the outer box. This is absolutely spectacular work. It's so good that if someone didn't know how to look at computer generated images very closely, it couldn't be distinguished from the original. I can tell, but only one person in a thousand could.

May 2003
 
      Just wanted to let you know that I received the James Bond Aston Martin box today, and it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! What a nice product! And the hang tag is a really neat extra. I am totally delighted with both the product and the ultra-fast service, so THANK YOU very much for both. I certainly look forward to doing business with you in the future!

March 2003
 
      Thank you for the Mighty Kong box. Seeing this box again took me back to my child years. The Christmas I got this toy it was a good one, everyone had a good one, the smell of a real tree and fresh apples, oranges, pies and cakes, well it was something I will never will forget, again thank you for the box It looks GREAT. A GOOD JOB ON THE COLOR.

February 2003
 
      We are VERY happy with the NANDO box, thank you very much.

      I got the Mr. Robot and Atom Robot boxes and they are great. I have finally found someone I can buy these from!!!!

January 2003
 
      I received the nice reproduction boxes today in the mail, Arnold Mac 700 Motorcycle & Schuco Sonny Mouse. Great items! These are very fine copies! Boxes were really very well packed! I expected them to arrive flat, but am glad they are already assembled. Again, very nice service. I am sure I will order More in the future!

January 2003
 
      I just wanted to thank you for the great Highway Patrol box I ordered from you. I received it yesterday and gave it as a gift and the person I gave it to loves it! He actually has the car that came in the original box, so he was pretty excited to receive it. Thanks again, it's great!

      I got the Hubley Atomic Disintegrator box today. As usual your work is beyond terrific. This one will go beside the other box I bought from you a year or so ago. It's great to see someone with your talent interested in a hobby that is loved by so many. Keep up the good work!

      I received your replica ROCKETMAN box. NICE JOB!!! The ROCKETMAN is one of the best replica's I've seen. Although I try to stay away from reproductions, this is really nice to have. Thanks for the repro GREAT ASTRONAUT bottom as well!

October 2001
 
      I received the Circus Cyclist box in excellent condition (you pack as carefully as I d). I'm really not into repro's of anything but I believe some play an important role and was very glad to see your marking inside, I think you have one other box that I'm missing and will certainly consider buying that in the near future. Thanks for an all around good job.

      Re: Marx Frankenstein repro box.
Absolutely beautiful! Man you are talented! Couldn't be happier, wish I could leave feedback! THANKS :-)

      I've been collecting Space and tin toys for many years, and these are some of the nicest repro-boxes I've seen, as good as any and better than most! The attention to detail is excellent, with no visible flaws. Most repro-boxes look like photocopies, flaws and all, these look like originals!

May 2001
 
      Just wanted to thank you for the order that arrived safely...the Mechanized Robot boxes are works of art. Thanks for packing everything so well. Maximum respect to you both!

June 2000
 
      Received the repro Champ Skaters box and am very impressed, it is scary how something old can be reproduced so well. Good luck with them and I sure hope everyone stamps the inside as you have, without a lamp you can not tell the difference.

April 2000
 
      The boxes arrived safe and sound, thanks to an excellent job of packing them. The boxes are VERY nice, and I will recommend your work to others.

March 2000
 
      Received the Ratchet Robot box today, very nice repro !!! Thank You !

March 2000
 
      I am a graphic designer as well as an avid collector of space toys, and I have just recently purchased one of Toy Tents repro boxes - Irwin's Man from Mars. The box is very high quality and looks exactly like the original, minus the mildew smell, rips and tears. You would not go wrong in purchasing this box to complete your collection.

February 2000
 
      I received the Frankenstein box and it is fantastic!! I have seen pictures of the original and this is dead on. Beautiful job. I can see how some people couldn't distinguish this from the original. Thanks!

February 2000
 
      Thanks Dan for the GREAT repro box of the James Bond 007 Aston Martin, I have a genuine toy and box and it is an excellent copy of the original along with a tie-on 007 tag and is extra enhanced with a stamp letting you know that it is a copy, Thanks!

February 2000
 
      I have a near mint Hubley Disintegrator gun and I won your repro box on Ebay. What a great looking box. Really compliments the gun. Nice job, really professional.

February 2000
 
      ...beautiful Gilbert Aston Martin repro box AND hang tag. No need to look for one MIB anymore, awesome,awesome, awesome!!!!

February 2000
 
      I received the Batmobile box and thanks allot, much more cost effective for someone who just wants a display item. Thanks again.

February 2000
 
      Recently I had four, fifty year old, original capgun boxes reproduced by ToyTent. I could not believe how great they turned out. Even the aging of the box was visible. Great professional workmanship!

January 2000
 
      I am a writer who has recently worked with Sara Karloff, daughter of movie legend Boris Karloff, on the sequel to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein for the publishing division of VIACOM. Needless to say, I am an avid collector of Frankenstein memorabilia. I recently purchased one of Dan Dozier's reproduction boxes for my original Marx Bros. battery operated Frankenstein. It was absolutely FANTASTIC! If you are a collector who demands the finest in artwork and graphics I would highly recommend Dozier Designs.

December 1999
 
      I own a Nando robot with the original box, but did not want to display the box as I am afraid it will discolor. Knowing Dan as a very professional designer of graphic arts I asked him if he could make a repro of the original box. When he returned the original and two repro boxes I had a problem: it was almost impossible to tell what the original was! Dan's repro's are not just repro's: they are small pieces of art!

September 1999
 
      As a serious collector of vintage tin toys I pride myself in displaying my most prized pieces. Many of my these are boxed and although the original box can really enhance the display I was concerned about damaging some of my rarer boxes, some of which were already damaged. Luckily I had purchased a rare tin space tank from Dan and when I got it I was flabbergasted by the quality of the reproduction box it came in.
     I asked Dan how he did it and he explained that his profession is graphic arts and that his reproduction boxes are made, not simply by color copying which gives you a repro box no better than the original, but by scanning original box art into a computer, digitally eliminating any flaws and filling in any missing art, and then ink jet printing the finished graphics onto high quality stock. Dan then skillfully fashions the printed graphics into a finished box using materials which are true to the original composition.
     I have been so impressed with Dan's work that I have sent him all of my original boxes to be reproduced. They have all come back to me just as I sent them with the exception that I now have these incredible boxes which I can freely handle and display while my originals are stored away for safe keeping.
     I have purchased repro boxes from other sources and have even sent some of them to Dan to redo at a higher level of quality. I swear that if they didn't have his identifying mark on the underside I would have sworn they were the real deal.
     If you are a serious collector and want a serious repro box for a fair price I highly recommend Dan Dozier.
