Why a wooden nickle?
Wooden nickles are nostalgic and unique -- and it's a tangible item that once in your hand feels as though you really have something of value.
The Wooden Nickle Welcome is a unique approach to a coupon book or sheet. The wooden nickle can fit in the pocket or be dropped in a purse or travel bag and withstand the rigors of traveling. The wooden nickle can't tear or fall apart after becoming water-logged - it's intact and ready to use.
