Ozark, MO (PRWEB) March 6, 2007
Designs on Demand now can picture military medals on their custom photo ribbon magnets for fallen soldiers, and they are continuing their policy of personalized photo dog tags at no charge for the immediate family of fallen soldiers.
"We began offering black ribbon magnets in 2005," said Margaret Scheperle, marketing director. "The complete personalization we do, with soldiers' photos, date and location of death, unit crest, personalized message, and now medals touches the soldier's family and friends, and helps keep their memories alive."
The magnets can include medals the soldier has earned, such as Purple Heart, Bronze Star, Meritorious Service, War on Terrorism Expeditionary and many more. The company has worked with scans of the soldier's actual medals when needed. Medals can be added to ribbon-shaped magnets as well as those with a rectangular flag background, and 3-4 will fit on the ribbon-shaped magnets and 4-6 on the rectangular.
"Along with the personalized photo magnets, photo dog tags are also precious memories to family and friends of the fallen soldier," said Scheperle. "We felt it was a small token of our appreciation for their sacrifice to offer dog tags at no charge to the immediate family -- parents, grandparents, siblings, spouse and children." Designs on Demand offers a reduced rate on tags for friends and extended family.
"We began the policy after we had done dog tags for a soldier from Michigan," said Scheperle. "When we got the word that she had been killed, we felt we had known her personally. We wanted to do something to honor her memory." The company has since then given away more than 400 tags to the families of some 80 soldiers.
In addition, upon request the company will set up a personalized web order page for a soldier. "In this way, everyone can receive a group rate," says Scheperle, "but the coordinating, paying for and distributing the orders does not have to go through a family member during the difficult time of loss."
Designs on Demand respects the soldier and family's sacrifice, and does not contact any family on its own. The offer of no-charge dog tags has no expiration date.
