Camp Medallions??

Post by xhoosier » Sat Mar 29, 2014 8:03 pm

I was not sure where to post this but I am looking for a place to have camp medallions made. I know someone who can make straight metal ones but I like the ones made with metal and embedded enamels like they had for the French Quarter. Any help appreciated.

I just did a quick Google search for "where to have medallions made" (without the quotes) and came up with several places that look like they could make anything you want. I'm not going to post any links here but that should get you started.

hay TT120,
I previously contacted many of the suppliers on the web and some have a good product while others not so good. I ask on here because I hope that if people liked what they have bought then it would be good to know that. Nothing like paying a bunch of money for something and then get some crappy stuff or finding out someone used a company that gave them the best price they could find.

thanks for giving your input

Not a bad idea to put that in your original post...

Asking some question without establishing that you've done any research beforehand is going to earn you "just fucking google it" replies. Also, stating your previous efforts will save us from providing suggestions that aren't helpful.

I've known Badger for... a "few" years, and he is indeed a good pewter-caster. Haven't used him personally, but I've seen & admired his work.
