Voting has now ended, congratulations to the winners!

This year marks the 15th anniversary for Anvil Customs. Recently we asked our followers to participate in a photo contest celebrating their Anvil gear! As a small, American Business that crafts premium leather goods we have gained an excellent following that grows more and more each day. We're proud to make our wallets, belts, and various other leather goods with a keen eye and sense of uniqueness. We happen to think our work is pretty darn photogenic, so we couldn't wait to see what folks came up with. Voting is now open on Facebook and Instagram, where you can vote for your favorite participants by "Liking" their post! Voting will conclude on May 3, and we'll announce the winners on the 4th. Please take a gander at their submissions, and to all participants good luck!

Photo Contest Entry 9 Shane Menckowski “This photo was taken behind my house at the railroad tracks where my four wheeler trail connects to railroad property. I chose this location because I thought with it being the outlaw finish the no trespassing underneath it would be a good location. I had to get really creative on how I would get the silver pieces on the side of the track. I used some silly putty to get the silver skulls to hang and magnets for fbomb and Harley key. In the photo is the Goldminer mini long, 3 in 3 22" chain with silver lucky horseshoe clasps, RTA tophat skull ring, box knot bracelet, 2 in 2 bracelet, anvil bottle opener & anvil brass knuck with brass beads and my Harley key with lucky leaf, 2 .625 oz North West Mint Territory .999 silver 9mm bullets, damascus F-bomb from @nicholsdamascus, 1.7 oz skulking from @nugg_lyfe_metals, 3oz Indian skull chief MK bars. I chose these items because they're my favorite RTA pieces & favorites from other makers.” . . #anvilcustoms #ryantheanvil #anvilforlife

Photo Contest Entry 13 Brian Callahan “I named the photo: The UNusual Suspects. In the photo, I am actually melting the Paracord ends after adding a Anvil Top Hat Skull Bead to my favorite EDC knife (SOC JCape3). I planned to add this bead to my knife for some time now, and thought it would be the perfect opportunity to showcase some of the less featured Anvil gear in my personal collection. RTA's sick wallets and chains are always the focal point of everyone's photography. And I thought these cool items needed some love too. Also featured in the photo are two of my favorite Anvil cuffs, as well as a sweet turquoise Anvil lighter cover. Thanks for looking Brothers...👊” . . #anvilcustoms #ryantheanvil #anvilforlife

Photo Contest Entry 20 Jayson Matthews “Taken in my yard. Everyone posts close ups. They show beautiful color,detail, and craftsmanship,but that's it. I have been a fan of Anvil leather for longer than most as I have been checking out his work long before the wallet craze. I still have the old biker rags with his chopper/ bobber seats advertisement in a little square on the vendor's page. Seat,bags,knuck,hoodie,hat,cuff,bracelet,wallets,and chains,all Anvil.This photo represents what Anvil means to me. Freedom ,peace, self expression. Anvil products on my Harley Davidson Panhead both born and bred in the US. Freedom of expression, hitting the open road with quality gear made in America by a man that has created his own American dream. Anvil products represent respect, trust, quality, and honesty, not just pretty colors and cool designs. Anvil Customs Leather for Life. “ . . #anvilcustoms #ryantheanvil #anvilforlife

"...That was 34 years ago before the housing boom took place and developments in East Springfield went thru the roof.  New neighborhoods of residential homes and farms upriver meant cloudier waters, downstream.  Fast forward to today and you can see the physical toll this has taken with the layer of phosphates covering the riverbed rocks.  It's a shame, yes, but to me, its still as beautiful as the first day I hooked into that monster bucketmouth..."

Sometimes people get confused. There's a chance people message us when they have a problem expecting to get the runaround like they do with larger less personal businesses. They think they're messaging some disassociated random guy at a troubleshooting center in Nevada. So let me just take a moment to educate you on how it works...
