Challenge Coins Take the Place of Birth Announcements

Posted by Signature Coins | July 25, 2011 at 3:05pm | Topic: Birth Announcement Challenge Coins

When a new baby is born, his or her parents can’t wait to tell the world. Birth announcements, usually in the form of paper stationery, are purchased and sent out to family members and friends. Despite being traditional, few people like to mail this type of item because of the impact that it has on the environment.

Birth Announcement Coins Are Part of a Growing Trend

A growing trend that we have seen recently involves birth announcement challenge coins. Double sided and easy-to-customize, these cherished keepsakes are perfect because they are durable and long lasting. This allows them to be kept year after year without them showing deterioration or signs of wear and tear.

The Double Sided Design Leaves More Room For Personalization

The front side of the challenge coin often features a photograph of the baby while the back side has information including the child’s name, height, weight, birthdate, and birth time. This allows other people to share the joy of the birth and also learn more about the newborn girl or boy.

Challenge Coins Cut Back on Waste and Appear to Have Higher Value

Because the coins are created with metal, they have a higher perceived value than other types of birth announcements. This helps to cut back on waste because people will feel the need to hang onto the coins and treat them with care. A number of different types of products exist that can help maintain the attractive appearance of custom challenge coins.

Presentation Options Help Display and Protect Coins

Plastic coin cases and velvet boxes are just a few of the presentation options that we offer to our customers as a way to display and store their custom challenge coins. Each coin comes packaged in its own PVC envelope free of charge. This makes mailing the coins to family members and friends easy and safe.
