Cut Out Areas on Coins Make Designs More Interesting

Friday, July 26th, 2013

There are a number of different ways to make your custom challenge coins stand out in a crowd.  One of the most obvious options is a cut out.  Instead of having all areas of a coin be metal, why not accent the artwork featured on the coin by cutting areas of metal away?  People will appreciate your attention to details and they will go the extra mile to display their mementos in a place where other people will see them.

Custom challenge coins have long been used by different groups as a way to reward, excite, thank, inform, educate, and promote.  Businesses, organizations, schools, military units, clubs, and even individuals create custom coins to hand out for a number of different reasons.  Sometimes they want a cut out coin to thank the people in their lives for good deeds and other times they want a coin designed to hand out to potential clients, employees or volunteers.

Whatever the reason, custom challenge coins remain popular.  Get cut out coins created for your own business or group today.  Our
