Easy Ways To Design Your Own Custom Challenge Coins

While custom pins are our specialty at the LapelPinSuperstore.com, we also know all about custom challenge coins

Custom coins started as a military tradition, and later carried over into police departments, fire departments, and other emergency services. Now custom coins are being used by businesses, nonprofits, schools and other organizations as a marketing tool.

Coins make an outstanding promotional tool, and can even be used to reward notable achievements. You can design custom coins in virtually any shape or size, and with as much detail as you want to include. It doesn’t have to be a daunting process, either. Here are a few easy tips to help you design the perfect custom challenge coin. 

First, consider who will receive your custom coins. What type of message or sentiment are you trying send? Are you designing a coin that commemorates a special event? Are you creating a custom coin to recognize achievement? Or maybe a special coin to pass out to a few of your friends? 

Once you have considered the recipients of your coins, it’s time to dive deeper into the design. Thanks to modern production techniques, we can craft custom coins in virtually any shape you can imagine. While round coins are traditional and timeless, creating a custom coin in a shape representing your group, organization or brand is an excellent way to stand out.

Use your imagination and create something unique and intriguing. Custom coins are a great way to promote your brand, so design something memorable.

The metal style is another important factor in your coin's design. At the LapelpinSuperstore.com, we offer a choice of colors, as well as gold and silver finishes. We even provide brass and copper options, which add a traditional, classic look. 

Take your coin design a step further with a choice of polished or antiqued finishes. Polished gold and silver coins are the classic choice. But keep in mind, you have the opportunity to create a more dramatic look with black nickel or even duo-tone coins. Choosing the right metal style and color will make your coins really stand out. 

If you want to turn your coins into a different kind of keepsake, that’s no problem.  We can transform your coin design into custom keychains, bottle openers and more.

We offer a wide range of presentation options for your coins as well. From the standard PVC coin pouch and velvet coin bags to a beautiful velvet presentation case, the choice is up to you.
