Promotional Medals: A Branding & Style Guide

If you're hosting an award ceremony, a company sports day or any another kind of business event, promotional medals are a great, fun way to honour prize winners and gain brand exposure. Because medals are used to recognise outstanding achievements, people will love receiving them and will keep them for a long time, creating long-lasting and positive impressions of your brand.

To make sure that recipients are suitably pleased and honoured by their medals, you should choose medals that are in keeping with the tone of the event, the level of the achievement, and the tastes of awardees. Fortunately, there are a range of medal styles and branding options to ensure you get medals that are perfectly suited to your needs! Read on to find out what they are.

Promotional Medal Styles

Medal with Stars Design

This popular style of medal comes in bronze, silver or gold with a glossy dome in the middle for your branding. A simple star design around the outside of the medal gives it a fun, informal feel, ideal for a sports day.
