The blank medals listed below are a combination of die struck brass and die cast zinc medals. We offer engravable medals in various sizes and finishes. The engraving on the brass medals comes through in gold. The engraving on the zinc medals comes through in silver. Our medal engraving is mechanical unless the medal has a black screened surface, which can be laser engraved. The majority of medals can be combined with medallion inserts or metal discs. With engraved medals that take medallion inserts, we listed the medallion inserts and ribbons available on the item pages. In some cases it is better to use a metal disc insert while sometimes engraving or imprinting directly onto the medal is preferred. The medal engraving and imprint charges are also listed on the item pages. The imprint copy must be the same. There are minimum quantities required for printable medals, which are listed on the item pages. You have the option of printing on the front or back of the medal. Our staff can help you determine the best option for personalization.
