in numbers of 100 or so. Any ideas????

This is where we have to be creative, and also makes for the most fun in this kind of work. To start off, I think we need to know if this customer has a business, and what kind it is, to think of something appropriate that represents him.

He is in the financial industry but does not want something to suggest financial. He wants a WOW factor that no one else has. In the past they have presented surf boards, mercedes, swords, helmets, football jerseys, trips, etc.
Thanks for your help

I came across an item by accident while doing some awards for a school. They asked me to do marble paperweights with an engraved plate.

The marble is less than $1.00 each and I sublimated the metal also for less than $1.00 each, added pads and a plastic bag and sold them at $14.00 ea.

Recently I had other customers looking for something different and got more orders.

I bought the marble from JDS (trophy bases).

Sorry for the picture quality. it actually looks quite good.

How about a nice golden parachute? Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Those are a dime a dozen these days... at least it appears that way, even though I've never had one cross my desk.

Hello everyone,
Your input was very helpful. We settled on a customized shield that I will make a hanging ??? thing. We will put a Wallace (something)sword behind the shield.
Again, thanks to everyone.

My first thought was a Stock Market chart with a ball of RED YARN laying on the floor at the end of the chart..... :eek: Sorry.....

Back to a Real suggestion..... How about a Laptop Computer that can only display this web site.....
