Here is an introduction for ordering your custom lapel pins and challenge coins, including their benefits, types, and factors to consider when making them from the team at Galaxy Design Squad!

Benefits of Making Custom Pins or Challenge Coins

Lapel pins are one of the latest trends among creative clubs, artists, and businesses. They are used for varying reasons, the main reason being to express beliefs and personality. They are also used to showcase and advertise a brand.

The military mostly used custom challenge coins to reward great achievements. Those who performed exceptionally were given military challenge coins. This reward system has since been embraced by firefighters, the police, corporates, and EMS to promote their brand and reward achievements.

Custom pins and challenge coins are elegant and unique, and perfect for recognition. They are great substitutes for rewards such as trophies and caps. So, if you’re looking to have an exceptional award ceremony in your organization, consider designing lapel pins and coins. Moreover, lapel pins and coins are more effective and portable than trophies and other forms of reward.

You can also use them to motivate your employees, such that when they perform excellently, they get awarded a unique and customized pin or coin. In addition, they are a great way to showcase your brand. Employees can pin them on their clothes, which means wherever they are, they can market your products.

Choosing your Product Type and Design

There are various types of lapel pins and challenge coins in the market. At Galaxy Design Squad, you can get soft enamel, 3D mold, die-struck, hard enamel, and offset printed. All the types are amazing and high quality, but each is best suited for a different need.

Whichever type of pin or coin you’re making, it all starts with creating a great design. If you do not have design skills, there are plenty of online resources to help you convert your ideas into functional designs. Note that the quantity, material, color, and size of the pins are major factors to consider when designing. Also, our team of artists is happy to help you bring your ideas to life!

As you figure out the colors of your design, keep in mind that pins and coins are small and you should therefore use strong colors and bold lines if you want them to be noticeable from afar.

As for the material, you can decide which you want, depending on your project. The commonly used materials for custom challenge coins and pins are hard enamel and soft. Both produce durable and quality products, and so it all depends on your preference and budget. Lastly, you have to figure out the size. Small pins are typically more affordable than large pins. Our most common pin size is 1.25”, and for coins, 1.75” is a popular choice. Consider what you would like holding in your hand or carrying in your pocket to help you pick the right coin size.
