A civil engineer designs, constructs, supervises, operates, and maintains large construction projects and systems.  They work on roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, water supply and sewage treatment systems.  Reward the hard work of these highly skilled individuals by creating a custom challenge coin gift to award them at a ceremony or banquet held in their honor.

Why Challenge Coins Make Great Gifts

Custom challenge coins make great gifts for a number of reasons.  First and foremost, they’re crafted from durable materials.  This guarantees that the items last.  Rather than fade or deteriorate over time like some gift items, custom challenge coins remain true to their original appearance.

National Poverty in America Awareness Month takes place each January.  The annual initiative aims to educate the public about the impact poverty has on the United States and its people.  According to FeedingAmerica.org, “In 2013, 49.1 million Americans lived in food insecure households, including 33.3 million adults and 15.8 million children.”  Food insecurity occurs when there isn’t enough food in a household to feed its members.

Poverty does not discriminate.  America has its fair share of impoverished children and adults.  By raising awareness about the phenomenon, you help food banks replenish their dwindling supplies.  You provide meals, shelter, and community services to people in need.

Stand up paddle surfing or stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is gaining recognition worldwide.  Originating in Hawaii as an off-shoot of surfing, it allows surfers to paddle farther into the ocean than they typically can.  Paddlers race on lakes, large rivers and canals, breaking waves, and sea coasts.  They use tail winds to gain speed and steer their boards.

As a paddle board retailer, you want to draw interest in the sport.  One of the easiest ways to do that is to create custom challenge coins in your choice of size, shape, and metal plating.  If you need suggestions, feel free to ask.  Inspiring images fill our website.  Our designers give feedback as well once the artwork is created for your order.

The Advantages of Creating Custom Challenge Coins

The advantages of having custom challenge coins to distribute are many.  For example, what better way to create a buzz than to sponsor a competition and hand out coins to participants?  It’s a rewarding practice that builds self-esteem and draws interest in stand up paddling.

Another is to introduce people to your store that sells stand up paddling equipment.  Include your physical and virtual address on the coins so people can buy from you.  Ask your customers to refer to your website for sales and promotions.

People that are unaware of the sport learn more about its benefits.  They familiarize themselves with the equipment needed to stand up paddle or surf.  This benefits you because you are the one to sell these items to them.

Ways to Make Your Coins Unique and Memorable

Your business is unique.  Your personality is unique.  Let it shine through your custom challenge coin design.  We offer a number of options that help with the design process.  For example, a 3D version of your logo stands out in the minds of your customers.  Cut outs add emphasize to areas of a design.  So does silkscreens.

Sequential numbering gives coins a limited edition feel.  Antique metal makes them look old and weathered.  Epoxy domes protect printed images and give coins a glossy surface.  This is the perfect option if you want to include a photograph on your custom stand up paddling coins.

Contact Us However You Like

Introduce stand up paddling to the public.  Create custom challenge coins to give away as a promotional item.  Increase interest in the sport of stand up paddling.  Contact Challenge Coins Plus for more information about the different types of coins that we offer.

Alaska is among the most incredible states that make up the United States of America.  Located in the northwest extremity of the North America continent and bordering Canada to the east, it is a place where oil, natural gas, and fishing industries thrive.  Tourists love Alaska and all the beauty it brings.  The economy thrives on visitors like you.

Here are five things to know about Alaska before going there:

  1. According to 50States.com, “Alaska is the United States’ largest state and is over twice the size of Texas.” If you were to measure the land from north to south, the state is almost 1,400 miles long.  It measures from east to west 2,700 miles wide.
  2. 17 of the 20 highest peaks in the United States are in Alaska. If you like hiking and climbing, you’ll find the state’s landscape challenging and majestic.
  3. The Tongass National Forest is the largest national forest in the US. Covering most of Southeast Alaska and surrounding the famous Inside Passage, it provides visitors opportunities to view eagles, bears, spawning salmon, and wild Alaska like it’s never been seen before.
  4. Almost a third of Alaska lies within the Arctic Circle. You haven’t experienced cold until you’ve been to the state!
  5. Alaska’s name comes from the Eskimo word Alakshak. It means great lands or peninsula.

Some of the places you won’t want to miss in Alaska include Kenai Fjords National Park, Mendenhall Glacier, Aniakchak Crater, Golden North Hotel, and the Fisher Caldera.  Among the more incredible experiences you’ll have in the state, you’ll want to include the following activities to your itinerary:

  • A Northern Lights Tour
  • A Scenic Day Drive to Mt. McKinley
  • Hiking through an Alaskan National or State Park
  • Visiting a Historic Gold Rush Site
  • Going Sea Kayaking
  • Taking a ATV through Alaskan Backcountry

It doesn’t matter if you travel to Alaska for business or pleasure, you’re going to love the time you spent visiting the Last Frontier.  A favorite pastime for adults and children is collecting souvenirs along the way.  Among the most popular trinkets available are Alaskan challenge coin.  Custom made and designed to last, people carry coins in their pockets or put the mementos on display where others can see them.

Challenge coins are easy to pack in an overnight bag or suitcase.  People share coins with family and friends back home.  Coins come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles which fulfill everyone’s preferences.  When it comes to keepsakes, few are as highly regarded as custom challenge coins.  That’s why many Alaskan gift shops carry and sell the unique souvenirs to tourists.
