Fire Department Anniversary Challenge Coins

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Lutz Volunteer Fire Department is celebrating its 100 year anniversary.  They requested that we create custom challenge coins for them in anticipation of this extremely special anniversary.  Using their design ideas, we were able to create the type of coin that commemorated their centennial anniversary.

Custom challenge coins are the perfect keepsake for this type of occasion.  Attractive and memorable, they’re the type of item that people cherish and hold onto for years.  Custom coins can be created in a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles depending on the preferences of the customer ordering them.

Coins can have a decorative edge, 3D emblem, dual plating, sequential numbering or cut outs.  They can be single or double sided.  Coins can be created as medallions or bottle openers.  This allows the recipient of the coin to get more use out of it.

Custom coins can be presented in a velvet box or acrylic coin capsule.  We offer a variety of different options to store, display, and protect the challenge coin gifts you plan on handing out.  This is one way to add a touch of class to your ceremony or banquet.  The recipients of your coins will feel extra special receiving them.  They also will have a place to put their cherished keepsake when it’s not being viewed.

Bed and breakfasts are popular accommodations for individuals, couples, and families.  Many people opt to stay in them rather than a hotel because of the unique experience and personalized customer service that they receive.  Many bed and breakfasts have a unique theme like the Dog Bark Inn, a beagle shaped lodging in Cottonwood, Idaho, the historic Chateau Marmot in Hollywood, California or the Beckham Creek Cave Inn in the
Ozark Mountains of Arkansas.

Owners of bed and breakfasts throughout the country are always looking for a way to appeal to new guests.  One way they can do just that is through the creation and use of custom challenge coins.  The unique mementos are versatile, meaningful, and attractive.  They’re the perfect souvenir to take home from a trip because of their rich sentimental value.

Challenge coins are versatile which means they can be used in a number of different settings.  For example, two sided challenge coins can be used to advertise the bed and breakfast.  They can include a logo as well as text.  Information about the business including its name, location, phone number, email address, and website URL can be incorporated into the coin’s design making it a long lasting business card for the bed and breakfast.

Coins can also be unique in size or shape.  We’ve created many custom challenge coins that resembled an object or emblem.  These specialty coins always grab people’s attention because of their fun nature.  Challenge coins can also be created as medallions or bottle openers.  Imagine include a bottle opener coin with glass bottled beverages in your guests’ room prior to them arriving.  It’s details like these that make a long lasting impression on the people who stay at your unique bed and breakfast.
