We specialize in one share stock gifts! 

As of 2009, stock brokers will generally pass along the $500 certificate delivery fee imposed by the DTC.    The fee is part of an industry-wide effort to move away from paper stock certificates  and encourage electronic ownership in order to save money.

For now, GiveAshare.com can still get paper stock certificates because we work directly with transfer agents, but at some point, all companies will stop issuing paper stock certificates. See all the ways that we beat a broker.
