Cut-to-Shape Challenge Coins Make a Great Impact When Large Sized

June 7th, 2013

Cut-to-shape challenge coins have a great impact at larger sizes.  This allows us to create as much detail as possible to give coins their unique look and to enhance their appeal.  Challenge coins shaped like objects like military vehicles, weaponry, country outlines or animals will have a greater impact at larger sizes like 2.75 inch or 3 inches (at the largest dimension).  Since the cut-to-shape object may limit surface area of the challenge the bigger size will help to allow room for logos, emblems and text.

This is one of the many ways to make custom challenge coins stand out in a crowd.  Whenever considering the design for your coins, consider cutting them to shape.  This is an option that is very popular with Signature Coins customers.  Take a look at our online gallery for inspiration.  This will allow you to create your coins in a manner that grabs people’s attention and gets them ready for all that you have to offer as a business, organization, school, team or club.

Cut-to-shape coins gain attention wherever they go.  That’s why so many people use them for advertising and branding their business or organization.  It isn’t unusual to see people hand out coins in the place of business cards.  The challenge coin is the modern day business card for good reason.  It doesn’t get lost easily nor can it be damaged by water or torn.

Unique Sock Shaped Challenge Coin Created for 655th DPW

August 6th, 2012

When it comes to designing custom challenge coins, you have options.  Just ask the 655th DPW.  They decided to forgo a traditionally shaped challenge coin and have their personal mementos cut-to-shape to resemble socks.  This is a fun interpretation of what challenge coins are all about.  The customization process reflects the interests, personality, and even sense of humor of your group.

Challenge coins do not have to be round.  They can be made to resemble whatever image is featured on them.  This is what makes them attractive and interesting to look at.  Custom coins appeal to people of all ages because of their rich military history and symbolic nature.  Anyone receiving a custom challenge coins know that they have been given a great honor.
