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,"

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
