Why do stamping fees cost so much?
The reason it’s called the “die struck” process is we use a tool (a hydraulic press) to strike a mold and imprint your design. The manufacturing process for this component is expensive to produce, often taking 7-10 hours for a simple design. The steel itself is costly and the factory recycles our molds every two years unless it’s an active account. Read more.
Can I engrave my custom medals?
Custom medals are stamped from zinc. We don’t advise engraving them the same way stock medals are engraved. The grey base metal will show through. Instead we offer two choices.
Laser Engraving: We create a blank, raised metal area on your medal and laser engrave digits or a message of your choosing. Adds $0.30 per medal. Get Info…
Silk-screening: If you have multiple medals with the same title, silk-screening can be the way to go. Get Info…
