How are they made? Medals can be made by casting in a zinc metal or by die-striking your logo in to a base metal like brass or bronze. Both are great options and there are a few reasons we may choose one metal over the other. Casting allows for small cut-outs and better 3D sculpting of your design. Die-struck medals are perfect for simpilar design but can still offer close to the same 3D look a cast medal offers. Both options can be color-filled.

Plating: We have over ten different plating options including gold, bronze, copper, and silver and a antique finishes for 3rd or forth place medals. You can also combine different platings for a two-tone appearance.

Adding Color: Hard or soft enamel color-fill are the two best options for adding color.

Do you make double-sided medals?
Yes! Each side can even have a completely different design or logo.

Custom Medallions Alaska Women's Gold Nugget Triathlon Video Review

"I'm doing a testimonial, I'm Jen from Anchorage, Alaska, and this is the morning at the Alaska Women's Gold Nugget Triathlon. We're super excited about the day and wanted to give a quick little shout out for putting together some fabulous Medallions for our racers. We have sixteen hundred and fifty women it's an all-women's triathlon that'll happen it's May 20th, and we're having a great time"

Customer Review: "This is our fourth year that we've used the Monterey Company for, rather than a medallion, we decided to put together a little charm that the girls can wear he does bracelet or anklet or actually even we made it as a zipper pull, so I have some great medallions that we've done in past years, and Eric has basically figured out our artwork and put it onto a wonderful little logo and a great charm for us to have a great race so thank you, Eric, highly recommend your product and you guys have delivered time and time again, thanks so much."
