Top Tips for Designing Medals and Medallions:

  • Keep your design simple and bold – remember, LESS IS BETTER.
  • Medals are usually two dimensional (2D) with parts of the design, usually the lettering and the logo, being raised with the background recessed. Alternatively an even more impressive effect can be achieved with a three dimensional (3D) medal.
  • Enamel colours can be used to enhance your design.
  • You can design your medal to be single sided with the other side either blank or with a laurel wreath emblem. Alternatively you can opt for your own custom designs on both front and back.
  • Choose any reasonable size and shape for your medal.
  • You can choose a number of medal accessories including coloured neck ribbons, suede pouches or leatherette presentation boxes.
