We wanted to let you know how grateful we were to have my husband's food allergies translated into Spanish and Italian. We used your Italian food allergy cards constantly on our trip, as there were numerous occasion when English was not spoken. They were also a tremendous 'ice-breaker'... in one friendly Italian restaurant, the waiter (after he read all of the allergies) threw up his hands, said 'vino' and brought a bottle of wine saying that's all he could have!

I have been using your food allergy cards for at least 8 years and am a huge fan. Thank you so much for allowing me to follow my husband on expat assignments to Germany and now China and still be able to eat out and travel extensively. I have bought new cards because I have developed new food allergies but also have purchased them for my daughters and recommended them to MANY expats in both countries - including my nephew who is here in China as well with an allergic son. These food allergy cards give me a great deal of confidence when eating out and the Chinese here in Shanghai have been very attentive to my dietary concerns. Thanks, again!

Our entire family thanks you for your food allergy translation cards! We ordered some in Italian, French and Spanish due to our son's severe peanut and tree nut allergies. On our first night in Rome we handed one to our waiter, who promptly took it back to the chef who said they would make him something special since they did indeed use peanut oil in their kitchen. That was one of many situations when those cards came in very handy, since we aren't fluent in any of the languages. Your cards were an immense help to us.

Your food allergy cards have set my mind at ease when ordering in restaurants in Europe. The first time I ordered and used your peanuts and shellfish food allergy and medicine allergy cards was 2010 when my husband and I traveled to Italy. I also used your food allergy cards in 2014 while vacationing in France, Germany and Switzerland and even brought my French translation cards with me when we traveled in Canada. Fortunately, I've never had to use the cards that explain my husband's penicillin allergy but I'm glad I travel with them. I'm happy I ordered new cards for my trip this spring to countries in Eastern Europe. I love that your allergy cards are sturdy, plastic and fit nicely in my wallet.

I have dealt with you in the past and wanted to let you know that your gluten free translation cards are fantastic! We were in a busy street in the middle of Istanbul and wanted to have lunch on our way to visit Topkapi. I showed your gluten free card and ended up being shown by the owner by way of pointing what I could and could not have. When my meal came, it looked so good our friends ordered the same lunch. It also worked in Rhodes, Greece as the owner advised me they put flour in their rice which is most unusual for me. Thanks to your cards we are able to travel wherever we wish and have absolutely no problem with my gluten free diet. In fact, I feel that we are given superior treatment as the owner normally becomes involved and the cards are taken directly to the chef to confirm that the food is all right for me. I have told many people of your business and I hope they are using it to their advantage as I do.
