Short-run challenge coins can be among the most difficult to fulfill on a cost-effective basis. As one of the most trusted producers of custom challenge coins in the USA, Medalcraft Mint can meet the tight turnaround requirements common with short-run orders that overseas producers cannot.
Wisconsin-based Medalcraft Mint works with customers to arrive at price points that meet budget constraints, particularly in cases where die fees can send unit costs skyward. Custom challenge coins require the production of dies for use in the die-striking process.
“We help customers understand the process of medal striking and how creating the dies is the largest cost component,” explains Ryan Carlson, direct inside sales representative at Medalcraft Mint. “Short-run challenge coins can still be a good value if the customer plans to re-order using the same design in the future or if the current order uses an existing die.”
Short-run challenge coins benefit from an inquiry
The sales team at Medalcraft Mint fields inquiries on a regular basis from customers wondering about minimum order quantities for items ranging from executive desk gift sets to academic awards. Orders for short-run challenge coins can have widely varying unit costs, making an inquiry call a wise first step.
“Die fees comprise a significant portion of the cost, especially for two-sided projects,” Carlson says. “The more units you order, the more those die fees are spread out across the total investment.”
Medalcraft Mint can turn around orders much faster than overseas suppliers. Customers count on Medalcraft Mint for quality regardless of turnaround time as the company builds on its reputation as the most highly decorated producer of American-made short-run challenge coins.
