We have a guy here that does a pro job and has all the right bits and bobs - much cheaper than anywhere else. The only prob I can foresee is depending on where you are - postage costs etc (provided you use Spec Delivery).
I knew it! Perverts. Normally I'd say crack on - I enjoy a good hamster as much as the next one (and I've never served...), but I fail to understand the logistics behind humping a small piece of metal. Except possibly as a suppository.
(Mildly sensible answer for meridian - if they're redirection links, as they appear, then DII will have a paddy. Best to Google the company name and go straight to their site, although this may impact Slingsby's referral bonuses)
Worcester Medals did a good job on some miniatures for me. Needed them at fairly short notice and they were ready well in time.
They do say on their site that things get a bit slower around the run up to Remembrance Day.
I am told that a lot of other companies sub contract to WorcMedals, so yours may end up there anyway.
