Tokens can be used for almost any application - whether it's a coin operated business (like a car wash, Laundromat or family entertainment center) using them in place of quarters, a zoo helping to save the planet one token at a time or a brewery reviving a tradition that dates back to the 1800's.

More than Just a “Thank You”—a Token of Appreciation



(Seattle, WA)  Any great company is only as great as it’s employees—recognizing great employees is essential to creating a workplace that isn’t just a job, but a community of people that value each other. Reward systems have to be meaningful yet simple and engaging to use—all while not breaking the bank.

Using tokens rather than quarters or cash to activate start cycles or extend-time at car washes can help eliminate theft and vandalism, especially in unattended areas where these problems are most prevalent. Often the repairs required to replace faceplates and coin mechanisms when thieves break into coin boxes far exceed the value of the cash loss.

Whether on a personal or professional level, everyone wants to be praised for a job well done.  There are multiple studies showing that people value praise more than (or as much as) a monetary reward. And to motivate children, nothing beats something bright and shiny that looks like money.

Employers use recognition tokens to motivate employees, dentists and orthodontists use them to reward patients for good check-ups, and teachers use tokens to positively reinforce good behavior at school.
