How to Design Tokens

Custom Tokens

Ready to move up to custom tokens? It's easy to brand arcade tokens, car wash tokens or pachislo tokens to your company by placing your logo on one side and one of our stock token designs on the other. All it takes is a 1-time die charge of $195 (per side) and an idea of what you want your token to look like. Tokens can also be customized on both sides.

We try to make customization easy as possible. Just email your logo and instructions and we’ll do the rest.

Artwork Information

All artwork shown in black will be raised on the coin. Half tones and shading cannot be reproduced on a token and should be eliminated.

Please proof all artwork carefully. Changes made after a die is started may require engraving a complete new die at the customer's expense.

Be sure to proof your art at actual token size. Things look very different when you shrink them down. If you can read a word in print, you can read it on a token.

Electronic art files should be 300 DPI (dots per inch) or more. We prefer files made in Adobe Illustrator, but can work with most file formats, including .JPGs.

All artwork is preferred in an IBM PC Compatible format. Mac files should be saved in a PC format when possible. Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop files are preferable.

Any necessary changes to art will be billed following the guidelines below.
