Silicone rubber medals

Silicone Medals are our most economic option in our range. Extremely flexible, they can display 2D or 3D designs in the finest detail

Made from organic rubber materials, sourced directly from the ‘rubber trees’ in South America. Silicone Rubber Medals are famous for their flexible, lightweight and elastic materials. If treated correctly, they are tough and hardwearing (even for the most energetic kids!)

These medals can have a flat faced finished (two dimensional), or a raised and layered finished (three dimensional). You’ll also have the choice of a wide range of bright and vibrant colours.

Soft enamel medals

The process of starts by putting glossy substances, called enamel, into the metal die lines. The glossy varnish is placed onto the metal, without polishing, to create a textured and colourful look.

This process is perfect for versatile and truly unique yet less complex designs. The vibrancy from these medals creates an ideal way to showcase your branding at sports events.

Enamel Custom Medals are among our most popular sellers due to their affordability and raised and recessed areas on the design surface

Die-cast medals

Formed through a process of forcing liquidised metal into a personalised cast. It’s during this stage that our crafters will add your chosen colour, shape and design.

With a lengthy production process, our customers normally order in higher quantities to get the economic benefits from higher volumes. However, needless to say, this lengthy process offers exceptional and superior quality to this type of personalised medal.

Without enamel medals

If you are looking for a simple medal without colour, then our Contrast and Die Cast Medals are the perfect high quality, relatively low cost, medal.

Enamel is the substance that add a pop of colour to our medals. Therefore, if you choose the without enamel option, you will be supplied with metal without added colour. You will still have the option of selecting a bronze, silver or gold base.

The simplicity of a coin without enamel upholds a bold yet sophisticated feel, ideal for more mature crowds.

Contrasted metal medals

As the name suggests, these personalised medals display your design against a ‘contrasted’ background matt, sandblasted background finish. Unlike without enamel medals, this option allows you to apply a two-toned texture. They can also be partially enamelled, filled with colour, for a stylish finish.
