The Convenience and Practicality of Custom Bottle Openers Makes Them Popular by Demand

March 4th, 2011

There are many people that like to carry a commemorative challenge coin in their pockets.  If you are anything like these individuals, we have an even better suggestion for you.  Why not carry a challenge coin that is appealing and has a function?

Creativity and Innovation Become One

Custom challenge coin bottle openers are just as easy to carry in your pocket as coins but come with the added advantage of being able to open a bottle.  When it comes to designing your bottle openers, they can also have an opening that allows you to hang them from a dog tag chain or lanyard. The size options that are available make this useful custom product even more appealing.

Similar to the traditional challenge coins from which they are crafted, the bottle openers can be in any size ranging from 2.5 to 3.5 inches.  A rectangular shaped bottle opener that is 2.75” in size is a happy medium that allows plenty of room for your design. For added versatility, you can also design bottle openers to be double sided rather than just single.

Sharing the Enthusiasm and Perks

If you know others, like you, that genuinely appreciate a high quality challenge coin, why not design a bottle opener for them too?  Their convenience and practicality make them not only popular, but also the perfect gift or give away item. They offer a unique and useful way to say thank you to customers and organizational supporters.

Even recipients who will be seeing a challenge coin or custom bottle opener for the first time are sure to love the creativity and innovation behind it. You may even start a new trend or tradition among close family and friends by creating a new one each year as collectible bottle openers.

Low-Cost Ways to Make Collector’s Editions of Your Custom Challenge Coin

December 14th, 2010

Did you know that turning your rare custom challenge coins into collectible coins is easy and inexpensive? Though this may come as a surprise, it is true.  Signature Coins has a few tricks-of-the- trade that will help you effortlessly convert your rare coin to a collectible version while going easy on your pocket.

A Few Small Design Tweaks Make a Big Difference

There are actually quite a few details that can be added to your existing challenge coin design that will make it a must have among fellow coin enthusiasts.  However, here we are presenting our most cost efficient and popular options.

Numbered Challenged Coins Establish a Clear Order

Adding sequential engraved numbers to the edge of your coin will help collector’s know where they are within the assortment. All of your non-numbered coins will be the general coin while your numbered coins are given out as a collector’s item. The best aspect of using this option is that adding sequential edge numbering does not change the mold of your original challenge coin.

Plating Helps Differentiate Collectible Coins from the Rest

Another option you can take advantage of with no additional mold fee is changing the plating on your customized coin. Your collector’s edition challenge coin can easily be plated using a different metal.  For example, if your normal coin is plated in silver, the collectible coin can be plated in gold.

Making Paint Colors vary Between Coin Editions

Changing the enamel colors in your collector’s coin is another great way to set it apart from your original. With the unlimited number of color combinations Signature Coins has available, upgrading your custom challenge coin from a general to an exclusive one is simple and interesting.
