Why Select a Decorative Edge?
There are a number of reasons why a decorative edge is beneficial. First and foremost, it complements your design. For example, say that you feature a 3D image on your coins. You can further the visual appeal of the object by selecting a cross cut edge or oblique line edge because they are highly defined and attractive. A person can rub their finger over the edge and feel how the coin was created.
Second, a decorative edge gives the appearance that the coin is worth a lot monetarily. This allows the perceived value of the item to go up and gives others something to look forward to when they receive a coin. What has become a cherished keepsake for many will also be seen as a collector’s item.
Last but not least, a decorative edge on a coin gives off an air of professionalism. Businesses and organizations that opt to use challenge coins to promote their products and services can do so effectively. By handing out a coin that looks as attractive as the ones Signature Coins creates, these professional men and women are making a name for themselves in their community. Recipients of the coin know that they are valuable and as a result see the business or organization in a favorable light.
