Pine Car Awards

Tony Truitt of B.A.T. Production in Richmond, IN, submitted this idea. Tony works for a small, family-owned toy store that is always looking for new ways to promote inexpensive in-store events. Recently, the put together a Pine Car Derby to promote their car kits and increase store traffic. "By using my Badge-A-Minit button-making kit, I was able to quickly and easily make some great-looking buttons to give to all participants, along with ribbon-awards from 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners," Tony said. "The awards looked great, were easy to do, and cost very little - a true win-win situation for the store AND customers."
