TokensDirect custom tokens range in size from 0.800″ (approximately the size of a US nickel) to 1.25". Our most popular size is 0.984", slightly larger than a US quarter.

It’s important to determine what’s important when you design a token – is the image more salient than the text, is the text a dominant part of the design or an after thought, are the text and the image equally important? These are things to think about when you visualize your token.
