Top Medal Mounting related questions

Start by choosing a style: swing mounting (medal ribands are attached to a single brooch bar and the medals hang loose) or court style mounting (medals are held in position using a frame and are backed by the ribbons). Align the ribbons, then stitch them to the mounting board. Hang the medals, then fix the brooch. Make sure you follow the regulations for alignment, overlap, and order of precedence.
You can find a medal mounting service near you via Airtasker. For veterans or servicemen, our medal mounting experts can do swing mounting and court style and should be familiar with the regulations for wearing and displaying military medals. They can also wall mount medals from other vital events, such as sports or other achievements. Just tap “Post a task” to start finding an available medal mounting expert near you.
Start by cleaning your medals properly - use a soft brush or vacuum for the medal, and don’t wash the ribbons lest the dye runs. Then, pick out a proper display box or frame - preferably one with UV glass. Then, mount the medals following the manufacturer’s instructions - there’s usually a slot for you to insert the ribbon. Or, you may need to sew the ribbon into some backing material. If you’re working with military medals, make sure you follow the regulations.
To mount medals, you’ll need the following: ribbons, a brooch bar, coloured thread to match the medals, acid-free double-sided fabric tape, two layers of pelmet hessian (buckram), thin dark fabric, fabric glue, black or red felt, paper or card, a pair of sharp scissors, ruler, thimble, snipe-nosed pliers, needles, and sellotape.

What do medal mounting services include?

Our medal mounting services are a convenient and reliable way to display your medals on a wall, place them in a display case, or get them ready for wearing. When you book a medal mounting service on our platform, we can help you locate your nearest medal mounting professional. 

While there are different kinds of medal mounting, and you may have your own specific needs, here’s what you can expect from a typical medal mounting professional:

Medal mounting or display tools

As with all our handyman services, our medal mounting experts arrive with their own set of tools and supplies. No need for you to stop by a store for cardboard, tape, or thread - your Tasker will already have all of these when they go to your location (as requested). If necessary, you can even ask them to buy a display case for you - reimburse this purchase afterwards. 

Military medal mounting

Our medal mounting experts can help you prepare your military medals for wearing on special occasions like Armed Forces Day. Experts should be familiar with the display rules. For example, they know rules for maximum mounting: 3 for Navy medals mounting and a 5 for the rest of the military. Having someone else do this saves you from the (rather tiring) task of sewing through the ribbons, aligning the rims and points of each medal, and fixing the brooch.

Those who are busy with active service and elderly veterans will appreciate the convenience of working with someone who knows the rules for medal display and can do justice to these well-deserved awards. 

Military medal display case wall mounting

Taskers can also mount the medals into a display case while still following the rules for medal mounting. If you don’t have a display case yet, you can work with a constructor, tradesman, or furniture assembler to come up with one that suits your home and collection.

Displaying and mounting other kinds of medals

Military medals aren’t the only ones that Taskers can work with. Medal mounting experts can also help you mount students’ scholastic medals, rewards from athletic meets, and prizes from all kinds of competitions. Since there are no particular rules for these medals, the Tasker may focus on how best to preserve the metals and colours of the ribbons.

This involves picking a high-quality display case - preferably one that guards against light damage. They can also recommend an area in your home where you can display the medals without subjecting them to extreme temperatures or humidity.

Medal mounting isn’t the only task a Tasker can handle when it comes to furnishing your home. Our platform also lets you book handymen and contractors such as electricians and plumbers. If displaying your medals is just part of a long list of tasks you need to get done, you can always book a nearby Tasker to help out.
