Custom medals 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.
Medals 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.
