Custom Medals


Custom medallions for any event

Custom medallions are created for sporting events, special awards ceremonies, and academic competitions. Resembling a medal in appearance, medallions are often plated in different metals to signify levels of achievement. For example, many customers like to use Gold, Silver, Copper, and Bronze to relay First, Second, and Third Place as well as Honorable Mention.

Medallions that are custom made are typically round or square but can be cut-to-shape to highlight the artwork or photograph that is featured on them. They can be worn on a ribbon or chain so that others can see them and acknowledge an individual or group’s accomplishment. They can also be attached to other items like a keychain and carried from one location to the next.

Custom Pin Designs

A more creative approach you can take is using custom pins as collector's items that showcase your artistic talent. Whether it's a simple logo or a complex art piece, a great custom pin always starts with a striking design.

With Pin Depot, you have unlimited options. No matter what the occasion, choose us to create your custom medallions. We work with you to come up with a design that fits your needs. You convey your idea or concept to us and our graphic artists put their talents to work creating medallions for your business, non-profit, sports team or academic institute. You’ll see your design come to life on a full color digital proof. Once we receive your approval, we submit your medallions to our production department for manufacturing.

Once you approve your design, a computer-generated mold is made. This is then stamped into metal to create the raised and recessed areas of the medal. The medal base is plated in gold, silver, or whichever medal plating you have chosen. The recessed areas are then filled with coloured enamel paint (or translucent colors, which look amazing!), separated by the raised areas made by the metal outlines in the design stage.

The layers of enamel paint are applied to the recessed areas. Once the enamel is baked and dried, the medal’s colors actually sit slightly lower than the raised metal areas, giving the finished medal a distinct outlined look.

What our customer say

“PinDepot team was excellent to work with. Helped with the process every step of the way, made great suggestions and delivered in a timely fashion at a great price. Looking forward to working with them again.”

“Pins came out amazing! Just like the file provided, and they were great ppl to work with when it came to adding minor changes to the design so that way it’s exactly done the way you want it! I’ll definitely be placing another order soon!”

“Pin Depot made my beautiful pin perfectly to order. Even though I made several changes to the design, it wasn't an issue. Everyone was friendly, followed up, and produced a pin that I'm proud to distribute.”

Medal Plating Options

The metal plating is the next step in the process. For soft enamel pins, the most common plating types are gold, nickel (silver), copper, and black nickel (dark silver/black chrome). The raised metal surfaces are polished to a mirror finish, and the recessed metal areas that were stamped are filled with an enamel paint.

If you have any further questions, Give us a call!

What is your minimum order?

A. Our minimum order quantity is 100. In certain situations, we can manufacture and sell orders as small as 50 pins, but there is a below-minimum fee that often applies and the unit pricing is higher than that at quantity 100. Please contact us for additional details.

How long does it take to get my pins?

A. Although every pin is a little different, since everything we make is 100% custom, our orders typically deliver 7-10 business days after you pay for your order. That said, if you require a quicker turnaround, we will make every effort to accommodate it.

Can I get my pins faster than the typical turnaround time?

A. Even though our standard turnaround times are some of the fastest in the industry, we understand that sometimes you need your pins even quicker than usual. As such, we work with all customers to understand their deadlines at the beginning of the quoting process. We can either work with our production team to shave a few days off the delivery date or we can guide you into an alternate product type that can more easily facilitate rush production.

Q. How many colors can I use in my design?

A. Each lapel pin design allows you to feature up to 7 different color fills at no additional charge. If your design is complex and requires more than 7 different colors, we will happily add them. Each additional color only costs an extra $0.10 per pin.
