"The professionalism of Future Packaging, the great customer service and the concerted effort put forth to get the time capsule to me quickly made preserving a great piece of Chicago's baseball history easy and also went a long way in making our event a success. I highly recommend this company and their product." --- Brian A. Bernardoni, Director of Government Affairs, Chicago Association of REALTORS®, IL (2009)
"We are thrilled with the time capsule. It was just the right size and the directions for sealing were very easy to follow. The preservation kit provided enough supplies to handle the wide range of items we stored. We are confident that our items will emerge in good condition in 50 years when the capsule is scheduled to be opened for our 200th anniversary. Thanks for helping make this "once in a lifetime" experience so memorable." --- Beth Halleck, UIV Advancement, Winona State University, Minesota (2009)
