A wedding is a celebration of true love; it is a beginning of a new journey that two persons will embark as one. You and your partner, together with your friends and loved ones, would want something to remember that day by. This is where the concept of wedding souvenirs came to be. Now, like many others before you, your desire is to make your wedding favors unique and irreplaceable. Unfortunately, with everything that comes with planning the wedding to perfection, you have little to no time to actually think of the best memento your guests can take home from your special day. You know the answer to this particular conundrum? Minted custom coins.
Also known as challenge coins, custom coins were originally designed as a symbol of brotherhood in the military service. In addition to that, these coins were also presented to acknowledge outstanding soldiers who have shown excellence in their service to the country. Now, these challenge coins have extended their significance outside the military, eventually branching out to organizations and corporates alike.
As the significance of custom coins gained a wider audience, it is no surprise that these unique symbols of unity have reached the bonds of marriage.
Much like everything else about your special day, having challenge coins as wedding souvenirs will also require attention and creativity. The first thing to do is for you and your partner to think of the best symbol to use as your emblem. This symbol should perfectly capture your love story that one look on it is all it will take for your guests to remember your special day. One great way to maximize the two sides of your challenge coin is to have your couple photo imprinted on one side and your emblem and other wedding details on the other. This way, your coins will surely leave a lasting impression in the hearts of your guests, reminding them of the happy day they shared with you.
Once you and your partner have decided on a final design and concept for your custom coins, the next thing to do is to finalize the specifications of the coin. This entails choosing the metal style and edge cut of your souvenir coin. In addition to the basic elements of creating a challenge coin, there are also other customization options you can opt for to make it one-of-a-kind, such as epoxy coating, 3D designs, cutouts, custom shapes, engraved text, offset print and translucent enamel. You can also make it as keychain attachments or bottle openers.
Of course, the finishing touches of your souvenir custom coins are as important as the whole production process. You can give the coins extra character by choosing a metal style that gives off a simple but elegant sheen. If your budget allows it, you can opt for polished gold metal or antique gold metal. But if you are trying not to spend too much on your wedding favors, you can go for silver or copper. Aside from the sides of the coin, you can also let your imagination go wild with the style of its edges. With the edges, you have the option to have a diamond-cut, a rope-edge cut, or an oblique-cut. A custom edge will put more emphasis on the uniqueness of your custom coin.
The last part of making these coins as part of your wedding day lies in how you will package them. Most custom coin manufacturers offer packaging options that range from standard PVC pouches, pouch inserts and capsules to more sophisticated velvet presentation boxes and bags. Whatever you choose, such coins will be a symbol of love, ultimately making them a great keepsake to remember your wedding day by.
