Matching Challenge Coins and Lapel Pins

Monday, February 11th, 2013

Corporations use lapel pins and challenge coins to help make their brand visible.  A great example of how the two items work great together is their use at trade shows.  The lapel pins are worn by employees and representatives of the company so that an approaching person knows exactly who there are with. The coins can then be given to perspective clients and customers as a reminder of the conversation they had and the product or service being offered by the company from which they received the coins from.  Both gift items are rich in meaning and sentimental value for the people that they’re given to.

Matching lapel pins and challenge coins are attractive options for companies because it gives them twice the options to promote their business.  Custom pins and coins can be handed out separately or as a pair.  This adds to the collectible nature of these objects.  People will want to have both the lapel pin and challenge coin to add to their collection.

Service Recognition Challenge Coins

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

People like to be recognized for their hard work. Many individuals cherish the recognition they receive when the hard work they provide is done voluntarily.  Volunteers are special people that give of themselves to help many different causes and functions. Without volunteers many organizations such as nonprofits would not be able to operate.  Volunteers provide a necessary service which ultimately adds to the success of many charities.

We know that volunteers are not out for a monetary reward when they give their time and energy, but how special would they feel when given a challenge coin that displays the company or organization they work for along with the amount of hours they have given. These coins become a bit of a collector’s item and they look forward to when they reach the next level that brings with it another coin as a reward for their time.

Volunteers love to display their collections of challenge coins in their homes and offices.  That’s why it’s so important to make sure that you give them a presentation option that meets their needs.  Acrylic cases, coin capsules, and plastic stands can help store and display coins safely and conveniently.  Make sure to include these options in your request for a free price quote.  Packages make it much easier to hand out volunteer challenge coin awards throughout the year.
