I just ordered bracelets from www.irondog.us

They provide outstanding service!  They worked to make a custom bracelet to match our logo and it shipped today.  I will post a pic once I receive it.

I would highly recommend them for your poker bracelet needs.

I just order my third bracelet from Irondog as well for our 2008 Championship in December.  I told you they had great service! 

I have also ordered my other trophies for the year, and I'll post pics and details of all when they arrive.

I've been doing business with Irondog for a coupla years. We have quarterly championships with bracelet winners plus our player of the year. In December, in addition to a bracelet for our Player of the Year,  I'm going to add a trophy from ABC Gifts and Awards (great vendor for ceramic chips, too).
If it ain't naked, deep-fried or poker-related, I ain't interested!

I use TrophyPartner.com for our awards. Next year (since social gambling is illegal in our area, and it's family and close friends anyway) we will have a $1.00 "buy-in" that will go to our "trophy fund", and we can get bigger and better awards for season 2. This past season I only spent $40.00 on 2 awards, but I wanted to spend more. Couldn't do it. So one of our memebrs came up with a buy-in for trophy fund idea and everyone loved it. When that time comes I am sure I will post pictures of those awards, but that's a long time away.

Also very pleased with Iron Dog.  Recently ordered a bracelet and they were very helpful and extremely speedy in service (I think I received it the day after I placed my order  :o).

Just can't beat the service and price.

Picture isn't the greatest - doesn't do it justice.

Here we go!

Champion bracelet, from Irondog.us -- $18.  As has been stated, excellent product--excellent service.



Champion trophy, a bit more conservative than what we did last year.  12" metal cup, base cost was about $37 plus a small surcharge for extra engraving and shipping brought the total to $47.75 from Crown Awards.  Note, there was a blemish on the back of the base of this trophy and they are sending out a replacement to arrive before our event for no additional charge and no questions asked--great service!



Player of the Year award is once again a custom 1 oz silver card guard from PokerGuard.com, and once again it is absolutely stunning.  I am the lucky recipient of this award this year and I could not be more pleased, as I was so impressed with it last year.  $45 plus shipping brings it to $51.95.



It is always fun to have a 'First Out' award, and this year I found this amusing bobble horse's rear.  From Trophies2Go.com and base price was $13.30.  I was quite impressed they could add our logo to the plate for this price.  It is important to note that they have a $15 minimum order requirement and will charge $15 for any order less than that.  However, a quick search of the site revealed a pink 1st out pin for $1.75 that put me over the requirement and I didn't throw money away.  Shipping brought the total to $25.11.

I have been running tournaments for 7 years now at my place.  Have not thought a lot about changing what the winner gets in the Players Points Championship event, but you guys give some great ideas.  Thought I would post my pic for you all to see.  I been working with http://www.abcgiftsandawards.com/ for some time.  Gene is always eager to work with you, no matter how small or large your order is.  he even does specialty chips, which is nice for the monthly winners.  I have found the customer service to be stellar.  [img]

Just finished our first season of S.L.O.P. (Sass's League of Poker).  I went for an unconventional trophy and it went over well with the guys.  The "cups" dance along with the song of your choice (I recorded Kenny Rogers "The Gambler").

It is about that time (for us anyway) again, anyone doing anything new this year?
