The design is something we do at no charge provided our company gets the exclusive rights to any relative production. The I.P (Intellectual Property) or copyright is shared between the customer and ourselves. Neither party can use the art without the permission of the other. Should the customer wish to purchase the art from us (to use completely at their own discretion) a price can be negotiated for the purchase, and the copyright relinquished.
Once a design is decided upon, dies must be made. The cost varies depending
upon the complexity of the design. This is an up front cost and
requires payment in full prior to the production of samples.
Upon completion of the die, a pre-production sample is provided to you
to ensure that all aspects are correct and to your liking. This process
(from receipt of payment to delivery of sample) normally takes about
20 production days.

options' including a choice of gold, brass, silver, nickel or bronze
