Children’s Authors & Illustrators Week Custom Challenge Coins

November 20th, 2014

Children’s Authors & Illustrators Week takes place the first full week of February.  This year’s event is scheduled for the 2nd-8th.  Your library or school can get in on the action by planning activities that center around authors and illustrators.  This is the perfect way to introduce young readers to new books as well as the classics.

The More Activities the Better the Chance of Receiving a Gift

One of the things you can do to encourage participation is to offer a custom challenge coin to every child that attends more than one or two activities.  Give them an incentive for sticking around and learning about the different types of services the library or bookstore offers as well as some of the most popular children’s authors and illustrators in the world.

What Makes Custom Challenge Coins Ideal

Custom challenge coins are made to be durable.  Students can hold onto the mementos for years without them being damaged.  Few gift items are meant to last.  Custom challenge coins, however, are.  We take great pride in creating each and every one of our products.  We exceed your high standards by quality checking the coins before sending them out to you.

There are a number of different ways to make your coins exceptional in appearance.  One of the most popular is the 3D emblem.  Designed to give coins a unique three dimensional look, this option is one that is sure to delight the children you give your coins to.
