A classic example of 'you only get what you pay for'. I've designed an award medallion for a client and have a firm image in my mind of how it should look. I'd been encouraged to check out Chinese vendors but was disgusted at their lack of quality in manufacturing and finishing. I found a vendor here in the States who could produce the results I wanted but I then had to persuade the client to go with the higher cost. Their samples arrived today and one of them is shown here next to the Asian effort. Game over!
