Over the years, we have added many new machines, new services, formed partnerships and most recently, acquired a screen printing and embroidery company. We also recently announced a 10% discount on custom challenge coins. This offer applies to published pricing and is available to all branches of the military, as well as all police, fire and EMS units.” Challenge coins, which typically bear an organization’s insignia or distinct logo, were originally displayed as proof of membership.
