Yes. After every free design consultation, we will send you a clear digital copy of the design. If it’s not perfect, let us know and we won’t rest until it is. When you’re happy with it, we’ll send your approved design to the factory for production.
Designs will be sent 1 to 2 business days after your payment is confirmed. Designs can also be sent before payment, when requested.
The finished product will look almost exactly like the approved digital design, so we don’t usually make samples. However, samples can be made upon request. We can send you a photo of the sample for free, but it will take an additional 7 to 8 days to complete your order. We can also ship the sample to you for an additional $35.00 and 13 to 14 more days before the order is completed. Please note that your order must be fully paid before any samples are made.
Yes, we can print photos or digital art onto your medals. Just send us a high resolution photo in JPEG, TIFF, AI, or PSD format with at least 300 dots per inch (DPI) and we’ll print away.
If you do not have a high resolution copy of the photo, we don’t recommend printing onto your medal because the result can look blurry. Don’t worry though — we still have plenty of other special options you can use to create a stunning design.
Yes, but we have a minimum size to make sure the text can be read. Letters must be 1.5mm tall or larger for printed and basic die struck medals. If you add a contrasting color of enamel behind the text on your die struck design, the letters can be as little as 1mm tall.
Die struck medals are about 2-5mm thick; enamel medals are 2-4mm thick; and printed medals are about 2mm thick.
Need a specific size or thickness? Let us know and we’ll see what we can do, but depending on the design this may cost more.
Yes. We can laser engrave unique names and numbers onto each of your medals for a small fee. This will create more delicate grooves on the surface of your medal. If you want the names and numbers to be fully embossed or debossed however for serious dimension, these will be considered as different designs (requiring separate molds) and will have to be treated as separate “AB orders”. AB orders will still be delivered in the same time as a regular order.
Our standard ribbons, cords, and chain necklaces are 15.75 inches long when folded and pulled taut. Ribbons are usually 1.2 inches wide, and chain necklaces are 3mm wide.
We offer a range of design options that you can use to create stunning one-of-a-kind medals. Choose one of our high-polished metal plating colors for that classic brilliance, or go for any of our high quality epoxy coats for a more glossy effect. You can even create your own glitter enamels with silver and gold glitter, or add rhinestones in several sizes and colors for a positively eye-catching sparkle.
We put a lot of thought into our prices. Some of the more important variables are quantity, stylistic add-ons, size and “surface area” of the modifications — i.e., how much printing or other graphically-related work does the project require? There may also be a mold fee for your medals.
The person most equipped to give you a price for your product is your sale representative or our useful DIY — both can give you a detailed analysis of your quote and what things featured into our per-item price. Happy hunting!
Our coins are either alloys or are plated in such a way to prevent oxidation or that slight metallic discoloring some metals gets over the years when exposed to the elements. We also offer protective cases that can further dispel discoloration.
Technically, everything, given enough time, will react to some degree with oxygen as the universe becomes more randomized. Even our customized products are victims of entropy.
No, we don’t. If you’re looking for a no-minimum medal producer, we’re one of the few folks who do that. Still, we recommend that if you’re going the through trouble to order one, you might as well have a dozen or more made — your sales representative would be happy to show how the per-price unit goes down tremendously after even ten items. That’s because we spread the cost of your unique custom medal’s set-up across however many that you order.
That said, if you want something that’s truly one of a kind, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll be happy to make a limited edition run of just one.
We use a zinc alloy to make most of our medals, but sometimes we also use aluminum, brass, or iron. You can choose which metal you want, or we can help you choose the best option for your design.
Only if you’re the Olympic committee.
Kidding aside, not right now — but we can add a gold or silver plated metallic color that will look and feel exactly the same.
