Monday, December 8th, 2014

2015 will be here before you know it.  Do you want to make it your best year yet?  If you do, we’d like to make a few suggestions.  The first, is to add custom challenge coins to your advertising budget.  A promotional item rich with symbolism and perceived value can increase the success of your business endeavors every day of the year.

Custom coins remain one of the most highly revered gift items available.  The reason for that is simple.  Who doesn’t like receiving something honorable and memorable?  The military has been using challenge coins for decades to reward, thank, encourage, support, and educate the troops.  Businesses, organizations, schools, clubs, religious institutions, and sports teams have followed suit by creating and using custom coins in a variety of ways.

Here are ten ways to make 2015 a memorable year for your business:

  • Set up an employee recognition program and transform your workplace into a well-oiled machine of productivity and positivity.
  • Thank customers in a truly personal and memorable way.
  • Build relationships with other businesses in the area.
  • Advertise a program, product, service or event.
  • Raise funds for a worthy cause in your community.
  • Use coins to build sales by offering a free gift with specific purchases.
  • Create sponsorship opportunities with other businesses by building your credibility.
  • Use challenge coins to support youth sports or other youth organizations.
  • Increase online sales with additional advertising on the face of a custom challenge coin.
  • Enhance the public’s perception of you as a business owner by adding to your branding, outreach, and charitable efforts through a unique gift item/marketing tool.

Challenge Coins Surpass Business Cards in the First Impression Category

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Do you want to make a great first impression on the people you meet but don’t want to get stuck toting around a set of lackluster business cards with you wherever you go? If you answered “Yes,” to our question, we have a solution for you. Why not create custom challenge coins to hand out instead? Durable and attractive, they easily surpass paper business cards in the looks department. They also are more appealing because they can be used in a number of different ways. One product with several different uses equals one big success.

Business Cards with a Modern Twist

Challenge coins like the one you see here are now being used in lieu of business cards for a number of different reasons. Just think about it for a moment. Do you want another flimsy paper business card to pass along or would you rather have a solid, beautifully hand crafted challenge coin to give to others? For us, it’s an easy answer. We know just how much work goes into creating a custom coin. That’s why we know they are made to last.

Things to Include on Your Custom Challenge Coins

Be sure to incorporate your business logo and contact info such as name, phone, and email address. If you have a website, include that address for sure. Consultant coins like the one you see here are especially useful when attending trade shows. Nothing says “I mean business” more than handing out custom challenge coins to prospective clients.

Challenge Coin Business Cards Are Diverse

In tough economic times like what we are currently experiencing, you must diversify if you want to survive as a business owner. Having us help you design and produce custom coins for you to hand out will instantly let you stand out from the pack. This will give you an advantage because it will help others recognize you and all that you do.

Custom Shapes Add Dimension to Design

The coin featured here happens to be round but we have done many rectangle business card coins. Whatever vision you happen to have for your custom products can become a reality by making one phone call to us. We take your ideas and concepts and turn them into tangible coins for you to hand out to current and prospective customers, vendors and volunteers.

Offset Printing for Your Coins

If gradients or fades are needed like the one you see here, we will be happy to offset print directly on the face of the coin. We will always cover our offset printed image with a clear coating called epoxy. This coin is unique because the front side was soft enamel which has raised and recessed areas and the back was smooth because of the epoxy.
