The Common Techniques of Making Medals
Zinc Alloy Die CastingZinc alloy die casting medal is formed by injection way, it is the optimal material for 3D cubic/ large-sized designs or the medals with empty spaces in between. Zinc alloy is less expensive and lighter weight than brass material; shows better effects of 3D relief, thus it has become the most popular material for souvenir medals. As to finishing colors, zinc alloy can be made as many finishing colors as die struck medals.
Die Struck Medals - Show the Detail of 3D ReliefCopper or brass die struck (die stamped) medals are also popular and welcomed. Copper or brass medals are much more solid and heavier than zinc alloy medals, plus the contour details can be expressed precisely by stamping way, die struck medals always treasured by specific people. Die struck medals can be filled with soft enamel colors, imitation hard enamel or with no colors filled. If a medal without any colors infill, antique finishing such as antique gold, antique silver, antique copper or antique brass will be the best choices. Sandblasting is suitable for 2D designs which shows two tone finishing, bright and matte, always make customers’ thumps up.
Embossed Soft Enamel and Photo Etched Soft Enamel- Quality Guarantee in Competitive PriceDie struck soft enamel medals and photo etched soft enamel medals are also beloved and commonly used in various activities. Die stuck soft enamel medal usually is thicker and heavier than photo etched soft enamel medal. If you prefer large sized medal with lighter weight, photo etched is your best choice, however if your medal design is 3D dimension, die struck is the only method. Epoxy covering is always optional for both soft enamel medals.
Imitation Enamel- Identical Glory to Cloisonné but in a More Competitive Price and Shorter Lead TimeCompared with cloisonne medals, imitation hard enamel is much more preferable because unit price is more competitive, colors with hundred more for options and it is almost identical to hard enamel in texture and glossy surface. If your design with tiny extra colors included, we can use silkscreen printing to complete your unique designs. The infilled colors will be flat and polished by hands with wax which is gorgeous and cherished by end users.
Hard Enamel- The Coloring of Cloisonné Badges Could Last over 100 YearsHard Enamel also named Cloisonné as well, the most traditional material for souvenir medals. Cloisonne is very hard and has a unique glaze luster coating after burning by the high temperature. The vibrant colors do not fade; the intricate pieces do not chip. Therefore, it is the most suitable and lifelong token for significant and commemorative award medals and military emblems. While most of the manufacturers have given up hard enamel technique, Jin Sheu still keep the production and the service to certain clients.
Four-color Offset Printing- Perfect for Designs Including Photos or BlendsFour-color offset printing is also named as offset printing. Using the CMYK colors to express your original colors as precisely as we can. Printed medals are usually thin and light weight than die struck medals and always with epoxy covered for color protection. The drawback of offset printed medals is only 2D is available, 3D cubic or sculpture image can’t be expressed by offset printing.
Silkscreen Printing- The Best Way for Particular Color Requirement of Custom Medal or MedallionSilkscreen Printing is also called solid color printing. It offers great detail in full and vivid colors, each color with Pantone number instructed definitely expresses your logo or design without color difference, even fluorescence and metallic colors can be imitated closely. Printed medals are usually thin and light weight than die struck medals and always with epoxy covered for color protection. The drawback of silkscreen printed medals is only 2D is available, 3D cubic or sculpture image can’t be expressed by silkscreen printing.
Pewter Medals - Spin Casted MedalsPewter medals is formed by spin casting with rubber, it is an alloy mainly composed of tin and lead, capable to be 2D/ 3D, with colors or without colors, bright finishing or matte finishing. Since rubber mold is easier to be prepared and medals formed (spin casting) faster than die struck or die casted, pewter is a good material for small quantity medals, such as 20pcs or 40pcs.
