Get a custom design in 3 Easy Steps

Step One

The first step is easy and FREE!  When you reach out with specifics about your project or event, we’ll talk about your needs as well things like design options, turnaround, and general pricing. If it’s a fit, we begin your complimentary custom design.

We can start with your sketch, photo, or written objectives. Our in-house artists have a wealth of experience and a track record for knowing the right approach to making a product that will impress and inspire even the most distinguished of recipients.

Step Two

After you receive your complimentary artwork, we can begin the review, revise and approval process. You’ll see product and design options designed for the specific requirements and limitations of coins, pins, and medallions, or whatever the end product might be. Revisions are possible and always free. Our team will work alongside you throughout the entire process ensuring quality and on-time delivery are a success. 

This is where we set ourselves apart from every other provider in this space. We believe in getting it right, not just getting the sale.

Step Three

Our hope is to make the process easy. So all we need to place your order is your “Ship to” and “Bill to” information. With this, we begin production!

A note about “easy.” – When we say easy, we mean easy for you. With 40+ years of experience in this product space, successfully designing and delivering the highest quality awards, gifts, and commemoratives is far from easy. Our clients have come to know us for our exceptional service, striking designs, and impressive quality. 


At C. Forbes, we deliver on our promises.

Most of our customers are repeat clients, or by direct referrals. That speaks volumes and we’re grateful to be of service.

The variables can be numerous: budget, timing, product type, quantity, materials, packaging, production, suppliers, and shipping. Our experience and expertise can assist you in these areas.

A discussion about your event, commemoration, or milestone celebration will result in a plan of action to achieve your goals. The only limits we have are your specifications. Whether the quantity produced is one, or ten thousand, the steps taken will be the same.

Our in-house creative department is always happy to provide complimentary spec art. We also welcome working with your staff to complete a concept or design.
