1.In which activities is the award medals used?

With the development of society, lives grow more and more diversified; people are no longer satisfied with food and clothing, but pay more attention to their bodily health and happiness. In terms of children, parents no longer only pay attention to grades, but also encourage the cultivation of hobbies.

In terms of sports, every country is vigorously encouraging full participation in sports to improve physical fitness, which promotes the development of many sports industries. The most represented sport is the marathon. Each city holds multiple marathon events every year. For participants in the long-distance running competition, it not only exercises their bodies but also hones their perseverance. Many also meet new friends, and more importantly, find that it promotes their vitality. After completing the marathon, they receive one of the most coveted prizes, which is the award medal. This is the best affirmation of the sweat and perseverance of each of the finishers.

Awards medals are also used in many other sports, such as cycling, swimming, hiking, multi-sport competitions, basketball, soccer, football, baseball, and softball.

Schools also use a lot of award medals, for competitions in skills such as singing, dance, running, and calligraphy.

There is also a need for award medals in the workplace to reward employees. When a team completes a company-specified target, an award medal is the best encouragement and praise they can be offered. Excellent employees demonstrating good performance should be issued an award medal in recognition.

Award medals are well-known and familiar in our lives, and more often medals are the affirmation of all aspects of society to us personally.

2.What information do I need to provide to customize award medals?

You need to provide us with the design of the award medal, which can be hand-drawn or a computer-generated drawing, and then tell us your desires size, thickness, and any accessories you have in mind. With this information, we can provide quotations for the award medals.

3.What is the next step after confirming the price of the award medals?

When you confirm that the price of the awards medal is acceptable, we will produce some manufacture artwork. These will be based on the designs you provided but will be adapted according to the requirements of the craftsmanship. If the awards medals are to be colored, our designers will mark it with the PMS numbers of each color. Dimensions and some special craftsman requirements will also be marked. Award medal accessories include ribbons and safety pins.

4.What materials are used to make the award medals? What are the prices?

The most common materials for making award medals are zinc alloy, iron, copper and stainless iron. Of these, zinc alloy is the most popular, because it is lightweight and long-lasting. It won't rust and it is affordable.

The iron material has size restrictions; it cannot be used for award medals which are too big because iron is relatively hard. If it is too large, pattern details will be pressed out and not fully visible. The usual size is 25.4-60mm.

Bronze award medals are relatively expensive, and most often bronze is used for challenge coins, badges and award medals for the military. If it is an ordinary sports event, copper is not recommended .

Stainless iron is usually used for printing award medals or lapel pins, but the regular thickness of stainless iron is 0.8-1.5MM. If the award medal has a required weight, stainless iron material is not suitable.

5.After confirming the manufacture artwork, can I see a sample award medal before mass production?

This is not a problem. We produce a sample award medal, but the customer must pay the mold fee first. This means there will no longer be the mold fee when you want to proceed with mass production. If you want us to send the sample to your office, then you will need to pay a shipping fee, which is about USD30-50 for 3-5 day delivery. If you don't need the sample award medal in your hands, we will take photos for your approval. This means you won't need to pay the sample shipping fee.

6.What transport methods do you use? What information do we need to provide when receiving the goods? Will purchasing in China be problematic?

There are three modes of transportation: express (DHL, Fedex, TNT, UPS), by air to your nearest airport or to your door, or by sea to your nearest port or to your door.

The most convenient of the express companies is DHL, both in terms of timeliness and service. They are followed by Fedex and UPS in the United States and Canada, which are also relatively good. Shipping takes 4-6 days.

For air freight to your nearest airport or delivery to your door, we must first have enough weight to be cost-effective. This takes 8-10 days, but is cheaper than express delivery.

Shipping by boat to your nearest port or to your door is also cost-effective if there is enough weight in your delivery, but the delivery takes a relatively long time, about 50-65 days.
