Buying challenge coins from a custom challenge coin company can be an excellent way to honor someone’s accomplishments or celebrate a milestone of someone in your family. Purchasing a single coin or several coins is simple and straightforward when you find the right company to get them from. Here is the basic process you’ll need to follow to get challenge coins for the fantastic people in your life.
To make sure you’re getting the best price, shop around and plan to get quotes from a few different challenge coin companies. Make sure that when you’re calling around to different companies that you’re also keeping in mind the importance of value and not just the lowest price. At LT’s Challenge Coins, we provide the best value for the price you’ll pay for coins that will last a lifetime.
The most beautiful thing about challenge coins is that they come in a variety of designs and unique features. Each challenge coin is one of a kind and designed by the people who know the recipient best. Here are some of the features you’ll need to decide on for us to craft you the most accurate quote on your challenge coins:
- 2D or 3D Design
- Addon Features
If this is your first time ordering challenge coins, you may understandably need some assistance with selecting your desired features. We’re happy to talk you through it if you want to give us a call.
Get A Quote
Your next step is telling the company about what you’re looking for and the features that you want and getting a quote for the product. Again, you’re looking for quality artistry here rather than just the lowest price. You’d hate to pay less for something if the quality was lacking. Excellent craftsmanship is usually worth paying a little more for.
Understand Payment Terms
After you’ve gotten quotes and worked out a price with the company of your choice, it’s time to get down to the payment terms. Make sure you understand what’s included and you’ve read all the fine print, if applicable. Find out whether the company will require a deposit upfront and how payment terms will work after the coins are completed.
Finalize the Design
It’s best to work with a custom logo artist or create your design for the challenge coin. When you use images found online or clipart, you’re less likely to have a one of a kind challenge coin, and it may not have the same value ascribed to it as the one you had designed or hired a designer for. Challenge coin companies can usually work with an image file or PDF file, and some can even work with hand drawings that are mailed or faxed in.
Production and Delivery
Your design has been finalized, the money has been paid, and your coins are ready to go. The last step is production and delivery. Make sure you know ahead of time how long it will take from initial order to delivery so that you can have your challenge coins ready in time.
Choosing the best custom challenge coin company is the first step in the process of designing and purchasing custom challenge coins for the people in your life who are doing amazing things. This basic process takes you step by step from idea conception to finish and is sure to put wide smiles on the face of the recipients.
