GIVEAWAY & Review: Allied Steel Medal Displays

That is right folks. I am finally doing my review and giveaway for and Allied Steel Medal Displays. I can not begin to tell you how amazing the people who create these amazing designs are. If you have never heard of Allied Steel Medal Displays you can go to their website HERE.




Alrighty, let's start the review...

I had first heard of Allied Medal hangers from my sister-in-law Karen whenever she got one. I didn't have any medals at that time, so didn't think anything of it. After I ran my first, second, third, and then fourth half marathon I started trying to find a place to hang these medals. They hung for a long time on one of my mirrors. At many of the Expos I shopped around at all the different medal hangs, but the one that kept sticking out to me was Allied Medal Displays. I loved many things about them such as...

1. They were very personal with you and your ideas. 
2. They would work with you if you were not sure what you wanted. 
3. They would respond personally to your e-mails. 

And so much more. 

I e-mailed Joel at Allied Medal Displays 2 weeks ago in the morning about a personalized design that I had in my mind and wanted to see what they could come up with and how much it would cost.  That evening I had a response from somebody with a picture attached of what my design would look like. (I will show you this in a little bit)

Not only did I like it, but I LOVED it!

 The next thing I know, I received an e-mail that I would receive my medal hanger within the next couple of days.

Here are a just a few pictures of Medal Hangers that they have done for other people.
















Are they not AMAZING!

Here is what I designed and received from Allied Medal Displays.....

My box came in from these amazing people! 

I was so excited I could barley take any of the pictures, but I still go them. I opened up the box and it was packaged so great!
It had a bunch of wrapping on top and then the medal hanger was underneath all the brown packaging paper.

I took out my medal hanger and it was wrapped up some more.
It had a Caution sticker on the top that read....
It was right. The edges were quite sharp.
Then I opened up the paper and there it was....My MEDAL HANGER!!
Sorry it is glared, but it says, "Run to Reach Your Prize". It has a running girl on the right hand side and a cross on the other side, because it is part of a verse out of the bible.

It has instructions in it also on how to hang up the medal hanger.
I just LOVE my Allied Medal Display!
I do not currently have it hanging up with medals on it, because we are in the process of moving, but as soon as I have it hung up, I will have medals on it.

Thanks for visiting my blog!! I'm moving to Katy in 2 weeks, maybe you can tell me where some of your favorite running areas are or about any good running clubs.

I've become a follower of your blog and I checked out that website - It's actually really cool what they do! I like the idea of customizing, but from what they show the Runner (Female) Display is neat.

I went to their web-site, I love plan things so I just love the simple metal one that says Runner and has a runner girl on the right side. :)

I follow your blog, and I liked them on facebook, I posted your blog article on facebook and I'm torn between the 13.1/26.2 and the Runner Girl hangers. I'm hoping to run my first full marathon this year so the 13.1/26.2 would be perfect for my first full marathon medal to go with the 2 half marathon medals I already have! These are soo cool, I've been looking for a way to display my medals!
