      Custom Medal Project from USA


      This custom medal inquiry was from a large beer club in USA, which holds on-site beer brewing competitions from time to time throughout the year. The person who contacted SICpin was the club’s competition coordinator. He was introduced by a friend and learned that SICpin has rich experience in medal design and manufacturing, so hoped to achieve long-term cooperation on custom medal projects. Separate medals will be for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place at the event.

      The customer who had experience in medal production provided a general design, detailed parameters and original drawings:

      100 pcs, 3D medal, soft enamel colors, 3 plating, 3’’ size, backstamp, 3 colors ribbon versions.

      Original draft

      1. Order details communication

      In order to make the USA custom medal requirements more clearly, we recommended that they provide the medal design made from the last event. After comparison, the customer hoped the medal content to be more three-dimensional and rich through 3D effects.

      To save their time and efficiently promote the medal project process, SICpin came up with the following issues:

      • Can the 3D effect in the artwork be explained more appropriately with photos or hand drawings?
      • Are the 3 types of plating gold, silver, and copper?
      • What kind of sewing method and color did they prefer for the ribbon?sewing method

      We confirmed all the details after getting a quick reply from the customer:

      • 3D effect of bottle cap and boot wine glass;
      • Shiny gold, silver and copper plating to distinguish 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place;
      • The sewing method confirmed and the ribbons in three different colors of blue, red and white

      After more in-depth communication, the customer hoped to use laser to process the text in the middle. Except for the adjustments on the enamel colors and ribbon colors many times, we also helped adjust other details such as size and position of the back stamp. After nearly a week of touch-up, gladly the USA customer was happy with the custom medal production artwork.

      Although the digital artwork had been confirmed, in order to better show the 3D details, we drew CNC effect artwork for the customer to check and approve. Some small 3D details revised, then the order production was finally confirmed.

      2. Production process

      Because the early communication was very clear and all the details were in place, the USA custom medal production went very smoothly. He was also very excited to see the production updates we sent.
