Creating a School Challenge Coin From Scratch

Educational organizations like high school, colleges and trade schools design their custom coins using official school colors, mascots and logos. You don’t need to have a coin design prepared when you reach out. We’ll take care of the artwork for you.

You can send us a written description of what you need, and that will be enough to get started. To helps us get a better understanding of what you’re looking for, send us snapshots from Google images, Pinterest or even our challenge coin gallery that show off different elements of artwork and design that you want to include in your design.

Custom Design Options for School Coins and Graduation Coins

Depending on the type of school or university challenge coin you’re looking for, some design options will be better than others. For example, if you’re looking for a mascot design, consider 3D artwork for your coins.

university of west georgia and bakersfield college challenge coin

3D challenge coins have more depth and detail than a traditional 2D challenge coin. A lot of the school coins designed with images of mascots or famous buildings around campus look incredible with realistic 3D challenge coin artwork.

However, 2D coins are still an excellent option. They have a traditional look and feel that anyone with a collection of coins will be familiar with. If you’re looking for ways of spicing up your 2D designs, consider choosing a custom edge or maybe a unique enamel paint.

Some custom edge options for college challenge coins are machined into the coin mold, while others are cut into the coins by hand after the coins are struck. We offer rope, spure, cross cut diamond and oblique edges, and we can also help you create something unique

When it comes to color, we can use the official Pantone colors used by your school. We can also take it up a notch with translucent colors, glitter enamel or glow enamel. Glitter and translucent enamel are both excellent options if you want to brighten up the look of your design while glow enamel ensures that your artwork continues to shine even after the lights go out.

Another excellent option, especially for school graduation coins, is laser engraving. We can laser engrave names, dates and special messages along the true edge of a coin or on the surface of a coin. If you want to include the names of individual graduates or faculty members, just let us know when you request a quote.

We’ll craft a beautiful coin design, and all you need to do is send us a list of the names, dates or messages that you want included on the individual coins. We’ll send that list to our production team so that they can laser engrave every coin, making each one unique.

Pricing and Shipping for University Challenge Coins

We understand that some of the special events where challenge coins are used can sneak up last minute, so our Signature Coins team is dedicated to meeting any kind of deadline imaginable. Our best time so far was a three-day turnaround, and while we can’t match that speed on every order, our typical production time of 14 days or fewer is still faster than the rush service provided by most other custom coin makers.

We include overnight shipping on every order and provide free artwork and free unlimited revisions to every customer. If you’re ready to create your own challenge coin, all we need are a few ideas to get started. Just fill out a free quote form anywhere on our website, and give us a description of the coin design you need. If you have any artwork prepared, feel free to include that as well, but we can create artwork from nothing more than a few sentences describing your design ideas.
