Custom college graduation medals help institutions up their game

College graduation medalsMedalcraft Mint delivers custom quality for colleges and universities

College graduation medals have risen to a status previously reserved for paper diplomas and degree certificates as institutions of higher education enhance their selection of commemoratives to mark a special day in graduates’ lives.

Medalcraft Mint’s in-house design and production teams work with colleges and universities of all sizes to create custom graduation medals and ceremonial chains of office that elevate commencement exercises to a higher level.

“Our customers appreciate the fact that every step in our production process takes places in the USA at our Green Bay, Wisconsin, facility,” comments Jerry Moran, owner and chief executive officer at Medalcraft Mint. “This enables us to minimize delivery times compared to foreign producers and have more control over scheduling.”

Make your college graduation medals a lifelong keepsake

One of the reasons college graduation medals have become popular is their durable nature compared to traditional paper degree certificates. Institutions have found that graduates who receive graduation medals experience a more tangible reaction to the event and the school than a paper certificate alone.

Medalcraft Mint’s college graduation medals provide additional value and points of differentiation from generic medals on the market:

  • Custom designs can include your school’s logo, slogan or other specific imagery
  • Superior image reproduction through Medalcraft Mint’s die-striking process
  • Specific designs for specific graduation groups such as different schools within the larger institution
  • Communication throughout the process from Medalcraft Mint’s USA-based workers
  • Specific ribbon colors to match honor levels such as magna cum laude, summa cum laude, etc.

“Custom college graduation medals provide that extra touch of class,” Moran says. “You want graduates to think highly of their alma mater, and a high-quality commemorative is a good way to begin your post-graduation relationship.”
