I know this little hustle.

You're going to visit various bowing allies with arcades and claim those impossible to win you model Ferraris and other assorted prizes using said tokens.

Thanks, Horlock. I'm presuming they buy them printed, bit any help is welcomed as it's hard to find a search term for this.

Thanks JJ.

My gut says that's not what's required, but I'll give them a call anyway. They might be able to point me in the right direction.

It does seem a little overkill if you arent doing huge quantities mate, is it worth using one of the printing companies to tender it with, they can do small runs fairly cheaply.
