But, for discerning types seeking the very best, read on.
Like legendary artisans, Absolute Victory Insignia produces the best products because we never cut corners and we never compromise quality. This is why we share project photos and client names on our website. We are proud of our work. Compare our products.
Our quality speaks for itself.
FACT: Anyone can claim to be the best. Almost anyone can generate nice conceptual artwork. What you want is someone who can routinely deliver the highest quality product.
So what's the secret? Besides an exceptionally talented die maker, one of our secrets is the finish - hard enamel versus soft. But here's what many in the industry don't want you to know; soft enamel isn't really enamel at all. It's just paint over the pressed ridges made by the die. Hard enamel is actually ground glass that is poured into each coin then fire baked.
With paper/conceptual artwork it can be hard to discern the difference. But, in person, when comparing the final product side to side, the end result is striking.
So then why would anyone use soft enamel? Because it's cheap! Some of our competitors actually prefer it because they know you probably don't know the difference. This is another part of the hook. Along with playing down a die fee, art fee and set up that will arrive as a separate charge - or "forgetting" to mention they charge you extra for each color, it's all part of quoting a very low per unit price.
As you can see from the side by side comparison, the end result is almost night and day. Hard enamel is far superior! That's why Absolute Victory Insignia will NEVER use soft enamel on any project.
