Make It Right! Check Your Challenge Coin Details Before Production

It's important to check every aspect of your challenge coin design before production begins

Whether you are creating your first challenge coins or your most recent ones, the details and options available can be overwhelming. Several elements make a great challenge coin, but keeping an eye on those details can be challenging. However, there are a few details that you should double-check before finalizing your order for production. Taking the time to do so could save your time and money down the line. 

When creating a challenge coin, it's exciting to dial in the details to get your design perfect. However, it's also easy to spot-check the content of your text. Make sure to check your layout to ensure that every element and name is spelled correctly. While our team does their best to check out all of those details throughout the design process, you, the customer, know the names, dates, and spelling. 

Misspellings and typos may not be apparent immediately, but they are hard to catch on the production side. Go through any text you want to include and confirm that everything is spelled correctly or how you would like. Once you receive your art proof, which includes a look at how your text will show, double-check the spelling, font, and typography to make sure everything is how you want it. Be sure to ensure the accuracy of emblems and colors on your challenge coin. These details in logos or an organization’s color scheme are vital components to a challenge coin. 

While creating an eye-catching visual can take up your attention, make sure the essential aspects of your coin are correct. Our artists will work with you throughout the design process, but not every color, sketch, or initial design will look the same depending on the lighting or the screen. Compare your colors before sending them in and double-check the colors on the art proof before production begins. 

Also, be sure that the size of your challenge coin is correct before finalizing your order. The scale of a custom coin can be hard to picture. Even the art proof doesn't do it justice. But, take a ruler and check out big a coin actually is before you confirm your order. This will give you a much more precise way to imagine how it will look in your hand or on display. Checking the dimensions ensures that the coin’s not too big to carry comfortably, or if you want a more significant coin for added visual impact. 

Don't forget to think about how many coins you will need. Underestimating or overestimating how many coins you need is necessary. Keep in mind the larger your order, the lower the price per coin. Ordering too few can lead to a cost-prohibitive reorder and will make the price per coin much higher. Remember, the size of your order, the size of the coin, and what sort of options you add will all determine the price of your coin. Choose wisely when working within a budget. Determining these factors before finalizing your order is crucial. 

You may already have an idea of coin size or even the size of your order. But remember to check all of the important details twice. Before ordering, make a checklist and ensure that all of your text is correct and the font and topography. Catching these details before your coins go into production is ideal to avoid the most common mistakes people make.
