Die Cast Medals from Zinc
The advantage of Zinc die cast medals is that just about any shape or form of medal may be produced, even with cut outs. The medals are then electro-plated for different finishes. Three-dimensional medals present no problem and a wide range of shapes and sizes can be produced as can be seen from the examples below.
These medals are normally stamped or pressed out of brass and some shapes and sizes lend themselves better to this manufacturing technique, mainly smaller medals and pin badges.
Lead Times for Medals in South Africa
After the design of the medal has been approved, the average lead time for South African orders will be 4 to 6 weeks depending on the size of the medal, the quantity of the medals ordered and type of ribbon.
Lead Times for International Orders of Medals
Once the design of the medal is approved, the lead time for international orders is 4 to 6 weeks dependant on the quantity of medals ordered as well as the size and type of ribbon.
If however we can finalize the medal order 4 months in advance we can ship the medals by sea freight which will result in a lower cost for the customer. Although we quote door to door for international orders the customer will still be liable for the VAT on the order payable to our freight agent upon delivery of the medals.
