Choosing School Tokens Sizes, Quantities & Customisation | TokensFor

If you’re thinking about purchasing some of our school tokens but don’t know where to begin, this handy buyer’s guide will help you get started.

The following content outlines the types of token on offer, as well as the different sets available, how to customise a token, and much more.

Click on the following links to jump to the relevant section:

What shapes are available?

Most of our tokens are circular and of varying sizes and designs. We also offer star-shaped tokens as standard. However, these are by no means the only shapes on offer; our custom service allows you to personalise not only the design on the face of the tokens, but the shape, size and thickness of the tokens themselves. For more about personalised tokens, click here.

What sizes are available?

We have three standard diameter sizes for our tokens:

  • 25mm
  • 35mm
  • 48mm

Look at the comparison table below to understand how the tokens may look in your hand:

Token size

25mm

A UK ten pence piece has a diameter of 24.5mm.

35mm

This is the size of a man’s standard circular-shaped watch.

48mm

These tokens are slightly larger than a standard Oreo biscuit, which measures around 45mm.

Star-shaped tokens also have a diameter of 48mm.

Our customisation service means it is possible to produce different shapes, sizes, and thickness on your required token.

What designs are available?

At TokensFor, we offer a range of standard designs for the surface of the token. These embossed options range from numerals, text and imagery.  Our standard tokens can be customised with any of the other standard designs; for example, a ‘House Point’ front paired with a ‘Smiley Face’ reverse. All tokens come in a range of colours.

We also include a bespoke printing service, making the choice of design almost limitless.

The following table shows some of the popular school token designs we offer:

House point

The house point system is a popular pupil reward system used in schools throughout the UK.

Smiley face

Featuring a smiley face on one side, these tokens are perfect as praise points.

Sad face

For those times when you need to convey displeasure.

Well done!

A more explicit means of praising pupils.

Meal token

Perfect for taking cash out of the equation. These tokens can be exchanged for money before an event, removing the issue of children losing their cash.

Star

Great for conveying extra special praise or signifying a major achievement.

What types of collector do you offer?

The right collector can make all the difference. Having the correct size of collector means the level of tokens placed inside it rises steadily, allowing pupils to follow their own progress or that of their house/team. The wrong collector (especially one that is too big) will fail to show any clear advancement over time and can make the system appear lacklustre and unengaging.

Collectors/storage for tokens come in three basic styles:

  • Boxes
  • Tubes
  • Trays
  • Accessories

Tokens For offers a wide variety of each type. See the table below for examples of the collectors on offer or click here for the full range:
