There are plenty of ways we can deliver excellent coins, but none of which can be done without involving our customers in the creative process.
Customers come to us asking if we can make coins for them. We have done a lot of work for a lot of organizations and people for a lot of different occasions. Each coin is made special by the ideas of our customers. While we take pride in our work, we acknowledge that each coin is the brainchild of our customers. After all, we are only here to make their dream coin a reality.
Here are some of the basics that our customers get acquainted with to become part of the creative process for making custom coins.
Picking the right color
ChallengeCoins4Less can work with a lot of different colors. Our artists can mix and match different colors and pigments to give the coin the color that our customers want.
Sometimes, our customers are not sure which colors would go well with one another or what shade to use for a coin. Our artists are easy to consult with and can give excellent recommendations on what to colors to use for a coin.
Shape it right
The nice thing about custom coins that a lot of our customers do not seem to get is that they can choose the size and shape. Some of our customers have had custom coins made in the shape of a pentagon, dog tag, or even a square.
The possibilities are near limitless. We even make unique shapes and sizes to suit a customer’s project to make the coin stand out even more.
Each type of shape does have advantages and disadvantages. For example, the round coin is the most vanilla of the shapes. It does however, have the advantage of offering the most real estate. It allows a coin to hold more design, color, words and etc. The great thing about custom shapes is their very unique. The downside is that they usually offer less real estate than a comparatively similar sized coin.
Font and writing
The font and the writing on the coin matter a great deal. The number of words, their arrangement, which words to use, and so forth are decisions that the customer should make. We can work with a large variety of different fonts to satisfy our customer’s needs.
It is also important to understand where the writing will be positioned. The possibilities for letter placement are enormous to say the least. Certain coins have had engravings not just on the face, but also on the rim. It may not be conventional, but that is just how some people want their coins.
Choosing a finish
The metal of the coin and its finish have a huge impact on the overall look of the coin. There are plenty of things that can be done with the coin to make it look different or special.
The first step is to choose the metal. We have a huge selection that includes, but is not limited to, nickel, copper, brass, and so much more.
Finish refers to the kind of polish or shine that the metal gives off when struck by light. A polished look will make the coin shine like brand new. An antique look will give the coin that look like it has already aged. There are even duo tones that give the metal a look that’s a mixture of polished and antique.
There are optional coin designs that a lot of our customers are surprised to find out actually exist. One of the most popular features that some our customers like to throw is functionality.
We can make coins that do more than just look cool or commemorative. Some coins are actually made to function as bottle openers for example. Other coins are made to be used as key chains. Throw us an idea and maybe we can just make it happen.
Free quote and proof
One of the problems with people is that they are too afraid to ask or try out our services. This is why we offer a free price quotation and proofing. We will send a proof, a sample of the coin, so people can see the quality of our product totally free of charge.
Proofs of our custom coins are always given out to make certain that our customers get what they want.
