It’s not a race without a medal at the finish line! Here’s why you need to grab custom-made medals for your next marathon, and how to get the job done.
Custom medals are a must for your next marathon or race. If you’re organizing the race, you definitely need medals to give to winners and participants. But even if you and your friends are just running the race, custom medals are a great way to celebrate and commemorate your efforts!
Skip the generic medals that don’t have any personal touch to them and make them custom-made with a logo, names, and even sequential numbers to mark finishing times.
How to Order Custom Medals
No more ordering medals from Amazon. You should choose a company that specializes in custom medals! Here’s how.
For starters, do a simple Google search and type in “custom medal companies.” You will get a lot of results that come up, so how do you know which one to choose? Well, definitely look for a company that has experience in creating custom medals. Also, check out any Trustpilot, Google Reviews, or Yelp reviews. This is how you can vet their quality and customer service because you want to make sure that the company you choose has a good reputation! If you find a company that looks like a solid pick, go ahead and reach out to them, and pay attention to how long it takes for them to reply to your questions. You want to choose a company that has great communication and won’t leave your questions unanswered for days on end.
Not sure what to ask? Here are the questions you should be asking:
What is your turnaround time?
You don’t want to have to wait several months to get your custom medals!
How much is your shipping?
Medals are heavy, so you want to find a company that won’t charge you a ton for shipping because that can become pricey.
What is your design process like?
If you don’t have a design created yet, it’s very important to work with a company that has an in-house design team so that they take care of the design for you.
What is your sample process like?
You want to make sure you’ll have opportunities to view the medal before they are shipped out to you. You also want to be able to approve or make changes if needed before your full order of medals is sent to you.
Are there any added (i.e. hidden) fees?
You want to make sure to know the costs right off the bat, so you aren’t surprised by any hidden fees later!
