daily paper? The sports section!
you could see yourself on a sports card
or on the cover of a sports magazine or
other similar venues? Sounds exciting,

pictures on sports cards, plaques, posters,
fabric throws and other memorabilia. We
can put a youngster's picture, or a picture
of his or her team or association, on
any of our authentic-looking products.
These can be donated or sold to team or

world, items like these are guaranteed
WILL YOU DO?

task will be to locate clients. These
can be found in amateur sports groups
(such as young people's leagues); school
athletic departments and industrial or
other semi-pro leagues as well as through
individual athletes and other persons
or groups you think would be interested.

for that project) and then send the pictures
to us for processing. These pictures can
then be placed on any of our large list
DOES THIS WORK?
the importance of sports today!
Our TV schedules, and the sports
pages of our newspapers, are filled
with news about "big games"
or star athletes. A substantial
portion of our children (and many
adults) are aspiring athletes hoping
someday to join the "elite"
they see mentioned in this media.
Decades ago a "ball game"
was an impromptu affair which occurred
whenever enough players had gathered
at a vacant lot to assemble two
teams. Today it is more likely to
be part of an organized league with
statistics kept and awards given.
Once these awards were cheap trophies
to be displayed for a few years
and then given to the thrift shop.
Now, technology lets us reproduce
fancy items just like the pros enjoy.
Needless to say such items are popular
among athletes young and old!
WILL IT COST ME?
