STEP 1 – CONCEPT TO DESIGN
All you need is an idea or concept and our custom minting team will do everything else. Our graphic artists turn your concept into reality in relatively short order. Grammco promotes direct interaction to ensure your concept is fully realized.
Typical timeframe from idea to approved art is 5-10 days with standard graphic design costs of $200 per side.
STEP 2 – PLASTER SCULPT
Two dimensional designs like business cards, logos, and simple designs do not require a sculptor. However, detailed landscapes, portraits, and other extremely detailed designs require a hand sculpted plaster. Our contracted sculptors are skilled artisans who have created everything from national monuments to coins in circulation worldwide today.
Typical timeframe to create master sculpts is 14-21 days with sculpting fees ranging from $1,000 to $1,500 per side.
STEP 3 – DIE FABRICATION
After your artwork and/or plaster sculpts are completed, working metal dies are created in order to “stamp” or “mint” the artwork onto your coins, bars or medallions. Our expert team of engravers ensures that your dies have sharp clean raised details. We handle annealing, heat-treating, frosting, and polishing of your dies.
Typical timeframe to create hardened steel dies in 7-10 days with die costs ranging from $400 to $600 per die (two dies required).
STEP 4 – MINTING
Once the steel dies are created, they are carefully placed into one of several of our hydraulic or mechanical presses to “stamp” or “coin” your rounds, bars or medallions. We use anywhere form 200 to 500 tons of pressure per strike to ensure a clean crisp design.
Typical timeframe to mint your custom products is 7-14 days from completion of the steel dies. Minting costs range depending on the quantity and finish required. Call for a quote.
STEP 5 – PACKAGING & SHIPPING
Many packaging options are available for every project. We offer simple packaging like tubes that hold 20 medallions, individual air-tight plastic holders, beautiful leatherette or solid wood boxes, etc. We ship worldwide using several carriers. Most domestic USA shipping is through FEDEX.
We ship your product immediately after the job is completed and packaged; usually within 24 hours of minting your custom products. All costs are FOB our facility. We ship worldwide.
