Award Your Staff and Clients with Custom Medals
Usually we associated medals with awards for valor and bravery in war. Typical of government they hand out cheap pieces of sculpted metal to those who have risked life and limb for the ambitions of the state. While those who risk their lives in the hope they will receive a government elephant stamp in the form of a cheap piece of tin hanging from your chest may believe it's a fair deal, once you source your own custom medals for your company you'll realise in a hurry that these promotional items are both cheap and easily made. So your company or organisation can leverage the classic perceived value of medals as an element of your marketing plan and enjoy a high return on investment, though not perhaps as high as governments have traditionally managed to achieve with their recycled pieces pieces of tin.
The History of Custom Medals
In the olden days medals were struck to commemorate any number of important and not so important national events. If the queen were to have a child, or another member of the royal family were to marry somebody to secure the family titles, school children would be presented with the opportunity to buy a custom medal from the education department for a penny or so, which could be dutifully saved over the generations in the false hope that it was actually worth something. These old school custom medals were used as propaganda tools as the powers that managed the world knew their message engraved or stamped on a custom medal would persuade the holder that the message was more valuable and powerful than may have been the case if it were simply printed on a poster and stuck to a wall.
Using Custom Medals for Promotions
Say your sales team has made budget and everyone's happy about it (except the accounts department, because nothing seems to ever make them happy except an audit). You could take the out to lunch, buy them a carton of beer, or shout them all an ice cream. But who would have guessed that a cheaper and loner lasting option than any of these three is to get some custom medals made by a quality supplier and award them at a lavish ceremony attended by all staff members. Not only do you get to play general and pin each custom medal to the winner, but as a team building exercise there are few better ways to make your staff aware they are members of an elite organisation than to hand out campaign awards in the form of custom medals to everyone in your company who has been part of a successful program
