Designs on Demand supports families of fallen soldiers by offering them personalized photo dog tags free of charge and has now made it easier for them to order with the company's Gold Star Families web page. Designs on Demand has given away over 1,500 tags to more than 250 families since September 2005.
Parents, grandparents, siblings, spouses, and children of fallen soldiers are encouraged to order dog tags from Designs on Demand at no cost. In addition, Designs on Demand offers the tags to extended family members and friends for a reduced flat rate of $4.25 each.
“I received the dog tags today. What a nice thing to have in memory of my son. I really appreciated your generosity in making these for my family. We will truly treasure them as a tribute to John and his service to our country.” - D.M., Ind.
The company launched the program after a regular customer was killed on duty. The company wanted to honor her memory with its no-charge policy.
“We felt it was a small token of our appreciation for their sacrifice to offer dog tags at no charge to the immediate family,” company founder Margaret Scheperle said. "People really appreciate our working up a remembrance of their soldier with all the medals and crests. They treasure having something tangible to remember the person by.”
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. The company has a Gold Star Families web page for ordering the tags at http://www.designsondemand.com/Gold_Star.htm, where personalized ribbon magnets, fabric patches, buttons, and ornaments are also available.
Designs on Demand serves the promotional and photo gift markets with personal attention to make each custom product look its best. They have pioneered double-sided photo dog tags with personal messages, which are now worn across the US and on military bases worldwide. The company is located in Ozark, Mo., and ships anywhere in the world.
