The upcoming Royal Wedding of Harry And Meghan on the 19th May this year is fast approaching. Being one of our nations favourite Royals, Harry and his American girlfriend Meghan Markle getting married has captured the country’s imagination as well as that of America.
As such a range of Royal Wedding commemorative gifts are being designed to cover a range of budgets right up to designer china gifts. All kinds of memorabilia and Royal Wedding souvenir gifts will be sought after to commemorate the event.
As such we have developed a range of Royal Wedding mugs to cover both earthenware and china, coming in 2 styles. One style has a Royal crest with a white stallion on the right and a lion on the left incorporating an image of the happy Royal couple in the centre and on the back of the mug there is the option to have this personalised with a school logo or text or have a standard version with a commemorative verse saying To commemorate the wedding of HRH Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at St. George’s Chapel Windsor Castle 19th May 2018 and underneath the Royal Crown.
The second is a portrait style mug with a beautiful image of the Royal couple in the centre surrounded by a decorative border and above a crown with the words HRH Prince Harry Meghan Markle and underneath the portrait, the date 19th May 2018. These style of Royal Wedding mugs come as a standard mug with the design on both sides or with the option of a personalisation on the back with either a school logo or text.
For the Queens 90th birthday later this year we have put a range of commemorative gifts together and our Queens 90th birthday commemorative coins are sure to be one of the most popular items we have and therefore we anticipate these will be limited.
Designed with the Queens Cypher logo on the front which is the EIIR symbol along with the crown and around the bottom we have introduced the Queens love of flowers where we have seven rose outlines. On the back we have a simple design of dots around the edge with four equally spaced diamond shapes.
As you would expect for this ocsassion we have made these Queens 90th birthday souvenir coins from a quality zinc alloy base which gives the coins are more hard wearing smooth finish. At 39mm in diameter and 3mm thick making these a heavy solid coin we have finished them off with a white gold (Rhodium plate) finish giving a bright shiny finish
Especially for schools and villages we have made these Queens 90th birthday school momento coins easily personalised where you can have a message or logo laser engraved on the back and as standard they are packaged in a black velvet pouch so these are easily handed out. As an alternative we offer the option to have them packaged in a clear perspex case which has a black foam inner to hold the coin firmly in place which sets the coin off beautifully.
For Church of England schools we can engrave the C of E winning logo which was drawn by Lucas Salinger whose winning design was chosen from over 1000 entries
These fantastic reward driven gifts are great for encouraging all pupils and students to attend school. They can be given at the end of term to all those pupils who gain 100% attendance and will encourage children to turn up to school.
Being a quality item gives this attendance medal the respect it deserves being around 39mm diameter and around 2mm thick. Manufactured from iron and dye stamped to incorporate the scroll design on the front with numerous stars around the edge to set off the wording Excellent Attendance.
On the reverse the stars around the edge surround the blank middle space where we can engrave a school logo or text to personalise each medal making them special to each school. These attendance awards are then gold sand blasted each side to give them a special look and are then delivered in a clear perspex presentation case.
Attendance in schools these days is at the forefront of everyone’s mind as governing bodies target improvement in school attendance across the board. Through recognition for improved attendance this can only help figures at the end of school terms.
