We can make them to many sizes and design choices – let’s have a chat! Variables that offer alternatives to the medal’s appearance, price and turnaround include the choice of timber species, size, ribbon type, design and detail (time on the laser cutter.) We can work to a budget, or work to provide you with the most specific of medals – your choice.
Team Elite works with Timber merchants based in SE Queensland to help offer a range of Australian (mainly indigenous) sustainably grown timber. The choices include:
- Tasmanian Oak
- Hoop Pine
- Radiata Pine
- Queensland Maple
- Others too – ask for details
The different timbers have varying price implications and appearances – call for some help.
The ribbons help finish off the medals and also add to distinction between first, second and third. We can supply personalised ribbons for your event, manufactured in recycled polyester. These ribbons can be either sublimated, allowing all over digital print, or printed, say, in Gold, Silver and Bronze. Team Elite also can supply generic first, second, third place ribbons (Red/Blue/Green – in that order) which can offer a saving and are ideal for a quick turnaround.
Being manufactured in our premises in Brisbane, we have a lot more flexibility than with the imported medals, which we also supply. However, the process still takes planning, as we can only make between 250/300 medals per day. We hold stocks of all the timbers shown on this site, but allowance needs to be made for large orders. Customised Ribbons take a minimum four/six weeks to order in – so that needs to be planned too, unless using our stock generic ribbons. If you want detail on the back of the medals, such as event, year, position etc. We will need that information in a spreadsheet.
HOW THEY ARE MADE
Australian grown timber, supplied by Australian timber yards, designed by Team Elite staff in Australia, manufactured and assembled in Australia by Team Elite Merchandise.
The timber medals are manufactured using a 60W laser cutting machine. Laser cutting is a thermal separating process that creates complex geometries using a focused laser beam. The ribbons are manufactured from recycled polyester and attached on site.
All medals manufactured by Team Elite are from sustainably grown Indigenous Australian timber from species such as Indigenous Tasmanian Oak, Hoop Pine, Queensland Maple. We can also manufacture from other Australian grown non-indigenous timbers such as Radiata Pine. The timber is supplied through South East Queensland based timber yards and the medal manufacturing process is handled by Team Elite in Brisbane.
All timbers used in Team Elite Timber medals are sustainably grown. They are from forests that are planted, managed and handled in a sustainable regime. These mills are all certified by the Australian Timber Industry.
TIMESCALES & THE PROCESS
Team Elite offers a full design, manufacture and delivery process on our timber medals. Give us your brief and we will do the design, we can give you prices and get into production here, in Australia as soon as we can.
Being manufactured from our premises in Brisbane allows a lot more flexibility than the traditional medals, which we also supply – brought in from overseas. However, this does also take planning – so get in touch!
This depends on a few variables: Quantity ordered, size of the medals, and type of timber chosen. Tasmanian Oak is more expensive than the pines, but we can show you both. Send us these details and we will quickly get prices to you.
Give us your brief, any logos (in vector format ideally) and we will do the art for you. If you have a budget you are working to – we can design around that too. All design work is part of our overall service.
