Die Styles for Custom Coins
After receiving your artwork, we will provide a paper proof for your review within a few days. The layout will show your design in two different sizes: blown up to 3” so you can review the image, text, alignment, spelling etc. and one image at size. It’s important to look at BOTH images but use the art at the actual size for your final approval. Things look very different when you shrink them down. If you can read a word in print at size, you can read it on a coin, key tag or medallion.
All artwork shown in black will be raised on the coin. Half tones and shading cannot be reproduced on a coin and should be eliminated.
