Medals and ribbons are highly visual signs of achievement
15th March 2017
When you think about medals and ribbons it is likely your first thought will be sporting events such as the Olympics or military regalia. Surprisingly both of these fields, although vastly different, have a lot of similarities. In sport and the military amazing feats are celebrated and rewards are given. That way they are properly acknowledged and marked.
The material used and shape of the medals can become synonymous; think gold medals for event winners and the Victoria Cross for examples. That is why it is important to choose the materials and designs carefully when you are considering offering awards such as these to mark achievements. Fortunately our team at Guns and Bows offer an array of options and can create the most beautiful bespoke products for clients of all shapes and sizes.
One thing that makes our medals really stand out is they can be 2D or 3D. Some people prefer flat, smooth finishes whereas others want the embossed effect to make the images and text really stand out. We create both, using the exact same care and attention to detail.
Another benefit we offer is we can add designs to both sides of the medals. Many people are concerned they won’t be able to fit everything they want on a relatively small space. The solution is to use both sides, perhaps placing a crest or logo on one and a message on the other. The end result is the design doesn’t feel too cramped.
Yet another way to save space on a medal itself is to choose a personalised ribbon or lanyard. They can be a wide array of different colours and also feature text and logos if you prefer.
When you come to us for medals and ribbons we will work closely with you to determine exactly what you want and create products that will exceed your expectations. Every item we make will be the highest quality and prove to be a treasured memento of an achievement.
