Custom Medallions, Not Just For Olympians
Bennett Awards offers unique, custom medallions that can be designed specifically for your needs. These medallions can be customized for you in a couple of different ways. We can customize the surface of your medallions to incorporate 3D reliefs that are based on an image of your choice. This image could be a logo, icon, or other image that has special significance for your organization, event, or recipient. Depending on your needs and budget, we can customize one side of the medallion, or both sides.
We can also customize the shape of your medallions to portray a desired image – all medallions do not need to be circular shapes. And, these two techniques can be combined to create medallions that are truly unique and distinctive, and reinforce your desired branding and imagery.
In addition, most custom medallions can support personalized engraving with additional information on the award, such as the award name, recipient name, and date of presentation.
Bennett Awards medallions can be used as standalone recognition awards, or can be combined with our sculpture awards to create a unique, integrated awards package. Custom sculpture awards can be used for the major award recipients, or as perpetual awards, while custom medallions based on the same imagery can be presented to a broader base of recipients.
Our custom medallions can be “packaged” and presented as distinctive, memorable recognition awards in a number of different ways, as outlined below.
Options for Custom Medallions
Our custom medallions are so unique and distinctive that they can be presented without any other ornamentation and still surprise and delight your participants. For very subtle, cost effective ornamentation, these custom medallions can be combined with a ribbon, a very standard practice for these types of awards. Prices for our standalone custom medallions start as low as $40 for single-sided medallions (plus set-up fee*).
Medallions Slotted in Bases
Our custom medallions can also be presented and displayed standing vertically on a base. This creates a medallion-based achievement award that recipients can proudly display on a desk, tabletop, or shelf. A small slot is cut in the base, and the medallion is mounted in that slot. These bases can be either marble or hardwood, and can also feature personalized engraving or engraved plates. Prices for this option start as low as $95 (plus set-up fee*).
Medallions Mounted on Bases
As more functional recognition awards, our custom medallions can be mounted horizontally on a base, creating a unique paperweight for recipients. The recommended base material for these paperweight achievement awards is marble, and, as above, the marble bases can feature personalized engraving. Prices for our paperweight medallions start at $75 (plus set-up fee*).
Medallions Affixed to Cups
Bennett Awards custom medallions can be affixed to the surface of a cup, creating a more statuesque recognition award based on the medallion design. We have existing award cups that can incorporate your custom medallions, or you can choose to create a new custom cup design as well. These custom medallion cups can be mounted on a variety of bases, and these bases can feature personalized engraving to provide additional information about the awards. Prices for this option can vary greatly depending on the choice of cup.
Medallions Incorporated Into Plaques
Our custom medallions can also be incorporated into plaques, amplifying the design and providing an additional display option. These plaques can be constructed from either hardwood or corian. In addition, the plaques can be designed as either hanging plaques or standing desk plaques (shown at right). As with our bases, these plaques can incorporate customized engraving – generally in the form of engraved plates – that provide additional information about the award. Prices for our medallions on plaques start for as little as $100 (plus set-up fee*).
Medallions Mounted on Acrylic Pedestals
Bennett Awards custom medallions can also be hung from crystal or acrylic pedestals. Not only is this a way to prominently display the awards, the clear nature of these pedestals also enables people to view the images on both sides of two-sided custom medallions. Pedestals come in a variety of shapes and sizes, providing yet another dimension on which to distinguish your recognition awards. In many cases, personalized engraving can be incorporated directly into the pedestal material, and in all cases the bases of these pedestals can feature customized engraving. Prices for our medallions on pedestals start at $125 (plus set-up fee*).
An Extra Note
A typical set-up fee, which includes model creation and mold production, is a one-time charge of $275 per unique design. As with most of our awards, there are a myriad of finishes and options you can add to your medallions. So be sure to talk with one of our sales staff, and they can answer any questions you may have.
