Our Name

The name Wooden Nickel Press comes from the creative trade of souvenir money that was used around the 1930s as advertisements or keepsakes from carnival and fair events. It also derives from the old American adage, Don’t take any wooden nickels, which is considered a lighthearted reminder to listen to your instincts.
