Celebrate National Salesperson Day with a Thoughtful Challenge Coin Gift

Friday, November 14th, 2014

December 4th is National Salesperson Day.  Planning for the occasion is easy with Challenge Coins Plus’ assistance.  We work with you to make sure that your custom challenge coin design is exactly the way you expect it to be.

Challenge coins make a statement.  They instill a feeling of pride in the recipient.  Your salespeople will be moved by your gesture and even more determined to make their future with your company a success.  Tangible rewards impact businesses in a positive way.

There are a number of different ways you can make your custom challenge coins stand out.  For example, shape is one thing people notice.  Rather than go with a traditional round or square shaped coin, why not have the coins cut-to-shape to resemble the outline of your logo.  It’s a great way to maintain brand consistency.

Here are some other things you can do to make your custom coins exceptional in appearance:

  • Add a decorative edge, 3D emblem or sequential numbering.
  • Have the coins created in antique metal or dual plated in two metals.
  • Add a bottle opener to each coin.
  • Cut out areas of the metal to add dimension to your design.

Don’t forget presentation options for your coins.  It’s so much easier to present them to others if you have something to put them in.  A package allows the recipient of the coin to store and display his or her award safely and conveniently.
