Guide to Buying Ice Sculptures

When you are purchasing an ice sculpture, you are contracting an artist to create a centerpiece for you that will best convey your thoughts and intentions on that particular occasion. Shopping for an ice sculpture can be quite a bit different than shopping for other products or services. The differences between companies in price, service, reliability and quality of sculpture can be CONSIDERABLE. Buyers beware.

In this day and age price is very important to most people when planning an event. At Ice Concepts we understand and respect this, however, your decision on who to purchase an ice sculpture from should certainly not be based on price alone.
