What our Clients say
I had a last minute coin re-design that need to be presented prior to being deployed and Successories was able to get the art work and order completed in time. When I received my coins, I was amazed at the quality of work and color was even better in my hand than it was on paper. Their hard work and commitment to excellence for their customer’s was “outstanding” to say the least. I highly encourage everyone to let Successories see what they can do for them…MSgt Terry M. Reilly 187th Fighter Wing
We received our coins yesterday and we are very happy with the results. My Commander was very pleased and we think they will be coins our students and instructors will be proud to receive. We will be sure to let everyone know where we had them done so hopefully we can send some more business your way.MSG CARLOS A. HARRIS 1ST BN 136TH REGIMENT
Want to extend a tremendous amount of gratitude to Ms Tammany and the gang! Top notch customer service. We really appreciate the attention to detail as we initially overlooked an omission on our coin design. Ms Tammany caught it and re-worked our order with minimal delay for us. We were able to deliver our coins on time to multiple locations with a huge reception for our cyber professionals. Thanks so much. Definitely will consider the team for future busi…
Just when you think it’s impossible to have a coin look like an F-16, you guys go out and produce this wonderful commemorative coin. The detail, shape and colors are outstanding and the unit members can seem to get enough of these little gems. Hats off to you (Tammany and Victoria) and the rest of the team at Celebrate Excellence for a wonderful and unique coin. SMSgt John Pochop 132d FW, Iowa ANG
Tammany: This [the award] is PERFECT!!! Have I told you lately that I love you!!!!Flynann Janisse, Rainbow Housing, Tucson, AZ
I am very pleased with the look and quality of my coin. Victoria kept me informed throughout the entire process from order to receipt of my coins. This is my first experience with ordering a coin and must say that you made the process a very easy one. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It is something that I will truly treasure that highlights my career in the USAF. - CMSgt Gregory Gamble, 22 AF Chief of Transportation
It’s truly been a pleasure to work with such dedicated professionals as Tammany and her staff. From the very first time I contacted Successories to the day I received my coins, I was thoroughly impressed by their customer service and attention to details. The Successories staff was very helpful, patient, and always kept me up to date on the status of my coins throughout the entire process. It’s quite apparent Successories of Texas not only provide quality …CMSgt Gilbert Manalo Indiana Air National Guard
I received my retirement coins and they are amazing! This is a beautiful token I will be handing out at my ceremony to my family, friends, supervisors, co-workers and everyone who played an important role in my life and supported me during my 29 years in the Air Force. Tammany and her staff were awesome!CMSgt Fatima Jones HQ ARPC
BTW…B@d@$$ challenge coins! Thanks! More to come…very soon.MSgt James Boyd, 90 IOS, Lackland AFB, TX
Recently, Successories of Texas was commissioned to produce a new “Presidential Challenge” coin for Columbia College. Now that the process is complete, all I can say is “you hit it out of the park.” When we began our collaboration, I remember telling you how important the “Presidential Challenge” coin is to Columbia College and how this new coin had to represent the values and traditions of our proud institution. Needless to say, your expertise…Serving the Public Servant Coordinator Columbia College
Celebrate Excellence, Tammany, and Team: Thank you so much for our Commander’s Coin! You and your team were patient and attentive as we worked up the sketch to ensure it was exactly what we wanted. Once we finalized the design, they came in quickly and they looked even better than anticipated. Thank you very much and looking foward to continuing our business relationship. FIVE CHARLIE! MSgt Craig Green, Superintendent, 92nd Information Operations Squadro…
I went into Tammany’s business 99% sure I knew what I wanted on our challenge coin. BOY WAS I WRONG! Her staff of absolute professionals totally redesigned what “I” thought was good into an exceptional challenge coin! Looking back, the original idea for the challenge coin would be a D- at the best. The end product was a A+++++ The timeless couldn’t have been better. If there were questions or comments, Tammany was very responsive to make sure we were 100% …Robert "Tony" Nussbaum, USAF
This is a story of why Tammany T. Williams and her team at Successories / Celebrate Excellence should be on your contacts list. I had another coin company that pulled out on our agreed upon delivery date–right before my retirement. In desperation I contacted Tammany and was amazed over what followed in the next few days. The short story is she took my artwork to a new level, brought together her production team, and gave me an amazing coin–as promised, on…
Thanks Tammany, As always, you deliver quality service and do exactly what you say you will do. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate how you handle your business. Unfortunately, all businesses do not live up to that standard, Successories / Celebrate Excellence does! Thanks for your support! Thanks for everything! Jerry Nelson, President, Safeside Association
All I can say is my outgoing boss and I were more than blown away. I can’t wait to get started with our personal chief challenge coins and the regular squadron challenge coin. I will be in next week to order some quarterly and annual awards. Again, I can’t thank you enough. I’ve been promoting your business everywhere I go.CMSgt Xavier S. Springs, 59 MDW, Lackland AFB, TX
This was my first experience creating a coin. Tammany, Victoria and the creative professional staff worked with me to “get it the way I wanted it”. They were prompt to deliver and were on schedule with the quoted arrival date. I love my Commander’s coin! It is a pleasure to give it and watch people look at the details on the coin. World Class Experience! I will recommend to others and return for my next purchase! Lt Col Louis Gallo, 23 Medical Ope…
I must admit when we started the process of locating a company that would work with our young Association to manufacture our challenge coin we did not know what to expect. After trying to contact three other companies with limited success our Treasurer found a Successories advertisement in a VFW magazine. I called and spoke with a customer service representative who was very helpful and knowledgeable. After our first conversation I knew we had found the co…Charles Hampton, President, 87th Aerial Port Squadron Association
I received the statue yesterday, it is a beautiful piece of art work. As always I appreciate you and your staff. Thanks Shirt MSgt Rick Dunkelberger, 116 MSG First Sergeant, GA ANG
Challenge coins going like hotcakes — feedback is tremendous! The challenge coin is a hit (as suspected).CMSgt Kevin G. Slater, 24th Air Force
“What a refreshing example of stellar customer service! Tammany and her team of professionals have truly made my experience – one to remember. I feel it is beyond necessary to commend Tammany on hiring a great team truly dedicated to the Principles of Customer Service (Speed, Quality and Customer satisfaction). I had the distinct pleasure of working with Victoria Ochoa in the fabrication of our squadron coin. Victoria exemplified the Golden Rules of g…
Thank you for your OUTSTANDING customer service and attention to detail. Some people may say you are TOO customer friendly but, I think it’s GREAT! I wish more business owners treated their customers like you and your “Successories” staff. Please continue to serve your customers in an “aim to please” manner because I am referring your business to all my co-workers. Thank you again for making my heart smile.Troy Moore USAF

I just wanted to thank both of you for providing another year of great products and services. I look forward to working with you each year as you make the process very simple and deliver quality products even when at times we may not be the easiest to deal with . Look forward to talking to you soon!
Tammany and her staff are EXCELLENT. They went above and beyond to design a lapel pin for Veteran’s Day in a very short time frame. From the first phone call to having the product in hand was an amazing two weeks. The lapel pins are gorgeous. Never have I received such excellent service from a company. I will be using Successories / Celebrate Excellence in the future for all my lapel pin needs and recommending them to others. THANK YOU! Georgia Campbell…
I received my coins on Friday and they are awesome! I am so pleased. I think I mentioned that my son graduated high school this weekend, so the timing was perfect. I had a lot of family in town so I was able to present them with my coin; my wife Janet got the first one. She’s been with me 29 of my 32 years in the AF; I couldn’t have made it this far without her love and encouragement. Of course I presented my mom and dad as well; it brought my mom to tea…CMSgt Wendell L. Peacock 94 AW Command Chief
Thank you! The challenge coins were a BIG hit. Tammany was fantastic. This was my first time to design a challenge coin for a specific event, and there was much emotion behind selection of the “perfect” symbols and images. Tammany made me feel welcome at the store and took the time to explain the process and various design options. They were creative and patient with the myriad of adjustments before the design was finalized. I received outstanding customer…Linda Hartman, CSSA, TX

Thanks EVER so much, Tammany, as always. You are THE BEST!!!! Don’t know WHAT we’d do without YOU!!!! Carolyn Lyon, Exec Asst to the Vice Commander, 502d ABW, JBSA
The entire Successories of Texas team not only advertises their celebration of excellence, but they “walk the talk”. What separates them from the competition? They deliver the highest quality, one-of-a-kind, in-house designed items on-time, the first time. Our organization’s heraldic device, competition challenge coins, superior performance awards, “plank owner” legacy items, and special event mementos are met with “Wow, where did you get that?”, and “Wow,…CMSgt Kevin Slater, Command Chief 24th Air Force, Lackland Air Force Base, TX

Excellent Service! Excellent Product! Successories of Texas, San Antonio really came through for us with the production of 400 challenge coin/bottle openers in short period of time! I just want to take this opportunity to let the entire staff at Successories how much I truly appreciate their excellent service. Their product was a huge success at the BAMC/WHMC Joint Summer Bash. The challenge coin/bottle openers are of great quality and piratical. Thank yo…MSgt Glenn Kerr 59 IPOG Lackland AFB, Texas
Tammany & the entire staff were truly phenomenal! Our Squadron coins (OTS 14-01, Maxwell AFB, AL) turned out better than we could have imagined and the efficiency and turnaround time were second to none. Everyone was very impressed at the quality and detail of the coin and there will be several repeat customers. We couldn’t have asked for a better product or better price. Thank you! Lt Casey Dockins, Keesler AFB, MS OTS 14-01 Alumni
“Tammany’s interaction with us in developing our new unit challenge coin resulted in a product that far exceeded my expectations. The final challenge coin design made our ariginal design look like my 3 & 5 year olds were scribbling in a coloring book. Thanks again and job well done.”Lt. Col Fillman & MSgt Roderick Walker 802 LRS, Lackland AFB, TX

Ma’am, I LOVE the challenge coins. I appreciate you being patient with us as we tweaked our design, and thank you for all of the additional time and effort you put in to tracking down the package. We definitely plan on doing business with you again in the future. Thank you!!!MSgt Paola West, Commandant, Vincent ALS, Hurlburt Field, FL
I’m a graphic designer who’s been in the business for over 30 years. I recently have begun a relationship with a major oil company who needed our help promoting an in-organization initiative meant to inspire folks to new levels of achievement. One of the items they requested was a commemorative coin. Having never designed or ordered them before, I was stumped on what to do. Man, am I glad I found Celebrate Excellence! I just received our challenge coins…
Writing a review from 3 different perspectives:In a city as big as San Antonio, there are a number of businesses which advertise trophies, plaques and awards. The difference for the saavy customer is to separate the shops with quality items, from those with poor imitations of the real thing. I would like to offer my review of Successories of Texas and Celebrate Excellence from 3 different pers…
We are extremely pleased with our coin and we will definitely use your services again in the future. Your design team and your overall customer service was outstanding which made the entire process a pleasant experience. Tammany, thank you and your team for a job well done! Chief.

This was my first year ordering fiesta pins for my company Baby E Sweet Sweets and Tammany and her wonderful staff made the experience so easy and fun… They had tons of patience and the customer service was just outstanding… I would recommend Successories / Celebrate Excellence to anyone!!! -Brittani Ham, Baby E Sweet Sweets
Currently working my third order with this company. All coins have turned out better than I could have expected. The staff is extremely helpful and professional. I can’t thank Victoria enough for her help and working within my unit’s timeline. The coins are the talk of the FOB and both Polish and US soldiers are trying to get their hands on one.
Thank again for your support!!

Tammany – Received the products [clocks] today and they are wonderful. Thank you so much for your assistance with this. I will be ordering some other products in the future since the customer service I received from your company has been excellent! Could you please thank your staff for me as well?TSgt K. P. Pereira, AFOSI, Andrews AFB, MD
I recently received my new coin from Successories. I couldn’t be more pleased. They captured all of my requests, placed them on a small area, and now I can proudly give to others for excellent performance. Tammany Williams was very courteous and a true professional. She even went out of her way to get the coins mailed during the holiday season, so I could get them before Christmas. I highly recommend Successories for anyone looking to purchase a new challe…CMSgt Gregory Cullen Wisconsin Air National Guard
In March, 2013, I contacted and met with Successories / Celebrate Excellence to design Fiesta medals. In the past I have used other companies outside of Texas and decided to keep it close to home this year. It was a great decision on my part as Successories did an awesome job! My medals are the best ever this year and higher quality than in the past. Thanks so much. Michael Horan, Group O
I am very impressed with the way the coin came out. I was very nervous at first, I wanted this coin to be EXACTLY what I had in MIND and Successories / Celebrate Excellence came thru. I have gotten nothing but awesome comments from the people that have seen this coins and touched them, the 3d is awesome. The companies customer service is exceptional, they kept me updated thru out the process until I received the coins. I see my self and our organ…
Delightfully easy to work with. Tammany makes ya feel like you are her only customer with the direct attention she gives you and quickness in which she works. I have to give Tammany a LOT of the credit for how good our coins came out. We were going in the black nickle direction and she sent me artwork for that as well as the gold just so I could see other option…Needless to say the black was scrapped and the gold was adopted all because Tammany and her te…Jason "Boots" Lambert, Secretary/Treasurer Station 911, Fire And Iron MC
Your personal coin is a very special thing. It is a big deal to our Airmen when they receive a coin, especially from the Command Chief. I cannot tell you how happy I am that I chose Successories to design my coin. Tammany was amazing to work with and the coin is an absolute work of art. You can’t believe the comments I have gotten from them and the look on the face of the first Airmen I coined, assured me that I had gone to the right place. Thanks again fo…Chief Angie Vos Iowa Air National Guard
