Sending medals for mounting?
It could not be easier to have your medals mounted by Empire. Select the number of medals and any additional service above, add to your basket and complete your order. We will then send you an email with your order confirmation number along with our address and full instructions about how and where to send your medals. Once your medals have arrived, we will email to let you know and then again to let you know when they have been sent back.
Full Size medal mounting service ‘Court’ Style. Medals that you purchase or send to us will be mounted on a stiff backing and stitched down to prevent them rubbing together.
Court Mounting originates from the reign of Queen Victoria. Serving members of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces in her attendance (in ‘Court’) were requested to ensure medals were sewn onto a backing board to prevent them from moving around and making a noise.
Court Mounting has been widely adopted by todays Award Forces. Whilst a more expensive form of mounting medals ready-to-wear, Court Mounting provides a more secure and longer lasting finish protecting medals from rubbing or bashing against each other.
Our team of skilled seamstresses use a variety of hand sewing techniques to professionally mount your medals. Our service includes the replacement of ribbon and the cleaning of your medals.
Cleaning military medals can be rather messy, particularly when they have become tarnished over time. We assess every medal based on the material and state and use the most appropriate method to clean your medal. We have a sophisticated metal dipping process in addition to our Ultra Sonic washing machine – that said, something good old fashioned elbow grease is all we need! All of this included in our medal mounting cost.
The service that you are ordering on this page is just that, a mounting service. This cost is for mounting only, the medals need to either be sent to us or purchased from us.
If you are sending medals to us to be mounted, we recommend using no less than the Royal Mail Special Delivery Service (or an equivalent insured, tracked service if sending from outside the UK) to the address below. When you check out you will be offered a choice of standard delivery or registered delivery. We recommend you select a recorded service. Standard post is tracked but not as secure.
