The Different Ways to Make Your Custom Challenge Coins Stand Out

Posted by Signature Coins | May 30, 2013 at 11:16pm | Topic: Challenge Coins

Custom challenge coins are among the most attractive, personal, and versatile items available. In addition to being the type of item that is awarded often, custom coins have taken the place of traditional business cards and promotional items because coins are unique and memorable. The chance of someone losing a coin is far less than them losing a piece of paper. That’s why so many businesses have resorted to using coins to advertise their products and services.

Here are some suggestions on ways to make your custom challenge coins stand out in a crowd:

Choose an unusual size or shape. Challenge coins do not have to be round or square. They can be cut-to-shape and even made to look like dog tags. Use your imagination to create an interesting design that captures people’s attention.

Add a 3D emblem. Use your logo or team mascot as the focal point of your challenge coin design. People can’t help but notice your coins when there’s a bold image on them.

Have the coins sequentially numbered. Give your coins a limited edition feel with sequential numbers. This is a great way to promote a small run of a product. If people see that you are giving out coins with a purchase, they’ll be the first ones to buy whatever it is that you’re selling.

Add glow-in-the-dark enamel. This type of challenge coin is great for nightclubs, glow bowling, and other events where the lights are out. The coins make great decorations for tables because of their ability to glow.

Have the coins dual plated. Choose a metal combination that looks good with the custom artwork that we created for you. Some popular combinations include gold and silver, silver and gold, and silver and bronze.

Have areas of the coin cut out. This gives depth and dimension to the coins. This is great for coins that look like wheels because we’re able to capture the spokes by cutting out areas of metal.

Add your email address, phone number or website URL. This is a great way to get others to contact you in the future. If you want to increase business, enrollment or attendance at your company, school or club, make sure to add this information to at least one side of your custom coins.
