Plastic medals

Plastic medals are lighter and cheaper than metal medals, but they’re not as durable.

Lightweight disposable plastic medallions are cheaper and lighter than metal medallions. However, their lack of durability makes them risky for extended use on the water or waterfront, where there is wear and tear from sun exposure and moisture buildup from fogging in wet weather conditions.

How to design your custom race medals

When it comes to custom awards medals, there are a lot of things to consider. The design of the medal is important, as it will be what participants remember after they cross the finish line. Here are some tips on how to create an amazing race medal:

-Think about the overall theme of the race and try to incorporate that into the design of the medal

For example, if the race is themed around superheroes, you could use comic book characters or other superhero icons in your design.

-Keep it simple

Custom race medals don’t need to be too elaborate – a simple design that is easy to read will work best.

-Make sure the text and any logos are legible from a distance

You want people to and read what it says even if they are far away.

-Use vibrant colors that will stand out against the background

This is especially important for medals that will be displayed on a ribbon or lanyard.

-Include the race date and other important information on the medal

This way, runners can always remember when and where they ran their race.

When designing your finisher medals, keep these tips in mind! They will help you create a design that runners will love and which will commemorate their amazing accomplishment.
