Challenge Coins Take the Place of Birth Announcements

July 25th, 2011

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.

For Modern Birth Announcements Try Custom Challenge Coins

December 10th, 2010

There is no greater feeling in the world for a parent than announcing the birth of their newborn son or daughter.  Rather than go with traditional stationery, today’s moms and dads opt to use something a little more modern.  Custom challenge coins are the perfect size, shape, and color for birth announcements. In fact, they are so unique that people worldwide prefer to order them instead of paper announcements.  Here are a few reasons why:

  • They are long lasting, durable, and attractive. Stationery shows wear over time.  Challenge coins are made from high quality materials which enhance the look and appeal of the gift’s design.
  • They can include a photograph of the child as well as their name, date and time of birth, and length and weight. What better way is there to let others know about your new bundle of joy than through the use of a challenge coin?  Available in single sided and double sided options, these incredible items are sentimental and valuable to their recipients.
  • They can be enclosed in a velvet box or acrylic coin capsule which makes them easy to ship to family members and friends. You can easily these birth announcements to loved ones in other cities and states for very little cost.  Individual bags and boxes offer extra protection from damage.

What Makes Challenge Coins Unique?

One of the biggest selling points of custom challenge coins is their ability to be personalized in a number of ways. Parents can add decorative edges, 3D images, and glitter to their design in an attempt to increase the appeal of their birth announcement coins.

They can even include phrases like, “It’s a Boy!” or “It’s a Girl!”  A picture of a stork or graphic of a baby can also be added to the design if a parent doesn’t want to use a photograph. This makes it easy to identify the type of custom challenge coin it is.
