Which medal choice is right for you? A guide to getting the perfect medal for your event (Slate)

We have an exciting story to share with you about our remarkable slate range of medals. Brace yourself for a journey into the world of Welsh history, as we unveil the unique features that set our slate medals apart from our beloved wooden range. Get ready to embrace the robustness that these medals bring to the winner's circle!

So, what's the big deal about our slate medals, you ask? Let's dive right in!

First things first, let's talk about their origin. Picture yourself standing on the rugged hills of Wales, surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty. Nestled amidst this majestic landscape is the historic Penrhyn slate mine. It's from this very mine that we source the slate to craft our extraordinary medals. How cool is that?

Now, let's explore what makes our slate range stand out from our wooden selection. The most noticeable difference lies in their material. While our wooden medals boast a warm, earthy charm, our slate medals exude an air of timeless elegance. The smooth, sleek surface of slate lends a touch of sophistication that is hard to match.


But the real magic lies in their robustness. We understand that being a winner means facing challenges head-on, and our slate medals are built to withstand the test of time. Slate medals are as tough as the champions who wear them. They're designed to endure the hustle and bustle of a winner's life, whether that means surviving countless celebrations or accompanying you on your epic adventures.

One of the most remarkable aspects of our slate range is the sense of heritage it carries. Each medal is infused with the rich history of Wales, a land known for its slate mining tradition. When you wear a slate medal, you become part of a narrative that stretches back centuries—a narrative that celebrates the hard work and dedication of generations past. It's like having a piece of Welsh history wrapped around your neck, reminding you of the stories etched in the very fabric of the land.

But that's not all! Our slate medals offer a wonderful canvas for customisation. The dark, smooth surface of the slate becomes the perfect backdrop for laser engraving, allowing us to create intricate designs that truly reflect your achievements. Whether it's your name, a special date, or even a personalised message, our slate medals offer a unique opportunity to make your victory even more memorable.

if you're looking for a robust and distinctive alternative to our wooden range of medals, look no further than our slate collection. With their elegant appearance, durability, and rich history, these medals are a winning choice for anyone striving to make their mark on the world.

Next time you stand on the winner's podium, let our slate medals be a testament to your journey, your triumphs, and the remarkable spirit that drives you forward. Because, in the end, it's not just about the medal itself—it's about the stories it tells and the memories it holds.
