What People Are Saying

“We have been impressed with Jim Rathert's mugs since he first introduced them to us over six years ago. Jim is a perfectionist which is evident in both the photography and craftsmanship in his product. We like these mugs so much they are now the only mugs we sell in our wild bird and nature store.”
