Custom Medallion Production Process

Art work can be sent to us via e-mail or as a hard copy. If you require your logo or emblem to feature on your medals or medallions then please send it to us for compiling the final art work of your medal. If you don’t have your emblem or logo on file you may like to check with your printer as they usually have what we require on their files. We are able to accept the following files jpeg, pdf & ai.

Reference material: If you would like your medal or medallion to feature say, a building or an image of an individual, then we will require a photo or a picture from a book or magazine to work from. The quality of the image on your medal will largely depend on the clarity of the reference material you send to us. Reference material can be sent to us electronically or as a hard copy.

You will get to see the final art work before we go into full production. If you have any concerns regarding art work or reference material please let us know.

“Die” / Mould Making

We are able to supply your medals or medallions as a 2D or 3D image. If your medal or medallion requires an image of an individual or say a building then these are best shown as 3D on your medal, and the reference material you supply is how we achieve this. The “die” or mould is what the medals are made from which means that the design on your medal will be exactly the same regardless of it is the first or the last one made.

Stamping or Moulding Process

This is where your medal is actually made. In the stamping process a metal blank (disc) is placed in between the front and back “die” and pressed together under significant pressure so that the metal from the blank flows into the design areas of the die.
In the moulding process, hot metal is injected into the mould where all the design areas of your medal are filled in. This metal then cools and released from the mould.

Production Samples

If you would like to view a production sample of your medal or medallion then we can do this for you by way of an actual sample in your hands or a photo of your medal sent to you electronically. That way you get to see your medal before we go into full production. A small fee may be applicable for the sample but we would let you know this cost before we start.

The Plating or Finishing Process

This is the last step in the manufacturing process of your medal or medallion. Each unfinished medal is individually cleaned and polished before it’s plated. There are a number of different options with regards to the type of plating that will best suit the design of your medal or that best suits your needs.

Bright Finish

The bright finish can be in bright gold, silver or copper. Depending on the design we usually recommend that the detail in your medal be raised and polished with the background of the design being a sandblast or stipple effect. In doing this you are able to achieve a contrast between your design and the background of your medal to ensure the design is the main feature.

Antique Finish

This finish is an oxidizing process whereby the medal is but into a special solution that turns your medal black in colour. The medal is then hand polished and in doing so the black is removed from the high areas of the design and the lower areas are left in the darker colour. This again gives you a contrast in the design detail ensuring that your design is the feature of your medal.
