Especially for retail operations where customers visit your place of business, put the mark at the same place you would the credit card logos.

These items are often overlooked as a marketing tool, but they go out to thousands of people. Putting the Top Choice Award™ logo on them reinforces your special position in your marketplace. This can be added when you reprint these items. But what if you already have materials in stock after you win the award? Simply use a Top Choice Award™ gold foil stickers that come with your initiation package. If you need more stickers, they are available at a very nominal fee.
