    what is the cheapest way to buy 1 share of a company and get their stock certifcate?

    Almost all direct purchase plans have minimums over $250.

    Oneshare.com seems like a ripoff

    Would doing this through IB be viable?

    I'm also checking out sharebuilder.com. I've e-mailed them and asked them what it would take to accomplish this.

    any other suggestions??

    I think I'd actually like to have ownership in the stocks as well..

    I dug it up on the sharebuilder website that they charge $30 to mail out a certificate... guess there's no cheap way to do it...
  3. What's the point?

    i think it's a great gift idea, and a super cool way to decorate a prop office...

  5. haha that's funny, that's why I was looking at the ebay one's at one point.... never thought to get a real one however, that's great!

  6. Check and see if the company has a direct investment program. That would afford you the cheapest access.
