One local resident became inspired to make fine gifts and awards after seeing the Dick Tracy statue standing along Naperville’s Riverwalk.
John Robbins, founder of Awards & Fine Gifts in Naperville, has created mugs, magnets and watches with an image of Dick Tracy, the iconic crime fighter.
He wanted to create these products as awards for top cops, crime stoppers, law enforcement officials and cartoon enthusiasts.
These gifts also serve as a way to recognize the cartoonist, Dick Locher, who is also a local resident.
“We are blessed to have Dick Locher here in Naperville because Dick Tracy is an iconic figure and Naperville has his statue and his artist right here, so I’m proud to present these items to Naperville and the United States,” said Robbins.
Robbins also created the first ever Dick Tracy top cop award, that was given to Mayor A. George Pradel back in March.
Anderson’s Bookshop and Two Doors East Gift Shop will have the watch, mug and magnets on their shelves, and more Dick Tracy items that can be personalized can be found at awardsandfinegifts.com.
