National Blood Donor Volunteer Month Challenge Coins

December 19th, 2012

National Blood Donor Volunteer Month is fast approaching.  What better way to get people interested in your blood drive than with a meaningful memento like a challenge coin?  The custom gifts speak volumes about your business or organization.

Custom coins are the type of item that people of all ages enjoy and relate to.  Because of the keepsake’s appearance and hefty weight, recipients of challenge coins feel like they’re receiving something extra special.  Long ago, custom coins were created and handed out to military units to commend their service and valor.  Today, coins are still used by the military but the practice has been extended to businesses, organizations, school, clubs, and sports teams.

Blood donor volunteers provide a valuable service to communities around the world.  Without blood donations, lives cannot be saved.  Anyone needing a transfusion would be unable to receive the lifesaving procedure.  Honor those that make a commitment of time and service with a meaningful gift that they will hold onto for years and cherish.  You can choose the size, shape, and style that best meets your needs.  We’ll be sure to exceed your expectations with your thoughtful gift of custom challenge coins.

Thank blood donors for coming out to your blood drive.  Visit to see samples of coins we’ve created in the past.  Email your request to  You can also call 1-800-953-3607 toll-free.  We’ll be more than happy to assist you with your request by creating quality, custom challenge coins that meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

Custom challenge coins make great tools for change.  Used to remind people of their New Year’s resolutions, the personalized mementos become cherished keepsakes quickly.  Employers can hand coins out as part of a new workplace health initiative.  People wanting to lose weight and get in shape can receive the motivation that they need through the use of custom challenge coins.

One look at the inspiration message imprinted on the coin is enough to keep people moving and making conscientious decisions about diet and exercise.  That’s the beauty behind custom coins.  You have the final say as to what size, shape, style, and colors your New Year’s resolutions coins look like.  That means they can be as classic or extravagant as you want them to be.

Challenge coins can be traditionally shaped or cut-to-shape to resemble the image or photograph included on them.  Challenge coins can also have decorative edges, 3D images, bottle opener mechanisms or sequential numbering.  Bold text is also a big part of challenge coin design.  A motivational slogan or word can be enough to keep people on track where their resolutions are concerned.

Promote International Creativity Month with Custom Challenge Coins

December 3rd, 2012

January is International Creativity Month.  Businesses, schools, organizations, and clubs are coming up with ideas as to ways to promote the annual initiative.  One of the most exciting and effective tools available to them is custom challenge coins.  We work with customers worldwide to come up with a design that meets their needs, explains the initiative, and highlights the events being held throughout the month of January.

Challenge coins can be created in a way that invites and awards creativity.  They can be small or large, classic or ornate.  Challenge coins can have a 3D image on them.  They can have a decorative edge that goes around the outer area of the coin.  Coins can also have cut outs or even spinning pieces.  Each adds an element of excitement to the customized gift.

Some coins are created as medallions and worn around the neck or carried on a keychain.  Other coins are made to be bottle openers.  This allows the recipient of the coin to have a useful tool that he or she can keep with them in a pocket or purse.  Bottle opener coins are extremely popular because of their dual use.  On one hand, they’re a cherished keepsake.  On the other, they’re a useful tool.

Order your creativity challenge coins today.  We can help you every step of the way of the designing and ordering process.  Visit to see the different options that we offer.  You can email your request to or call 1-800-953-3607 toll-free.  We’ll answer any questions that you have and get started on creating custom artwork for your challenge coins.
