Relive Your Race with Handcrafted Coasters

Do you ever see people posting photos of all of their race medals on social media and wonder “What do they do with all of those medals?” Sure, some hang them up on medal racks, but many place them in a drawer or box them in storage, never to be seen again. I personally am very proud of my medals and there are some I would love to highlight in a different way than just hanging them up. Enter Handcrafted Coasters; they have a unique solution!

Handcrafted Coasters is a business owned and operated by a couple that combined their love of woodworking and running. They’ve designed a unique way to preserve your medals- they work the medal into a handcrafted coaster. I had never seen these before now and had to try them out.

The process to create your custom Handcrafted Coasters is super simple:

  • Pick your medal (this is probably the hardest part). I chose one of my Urban Bourbon Half Marathon medals. Everyone needs a bourbon-themed coaster to pair with their favorite bourbon drink!
  • Complete the online order form. Select your wood from 6 options. I chose the ‘Sapele’ option as I thought the red on the medal would really pop against this wood.
  • You receive a pre-addressed shipping envelope. Individually wrap your medal and ship it in.
  • Receive your custom coaster back in the mail. Mine took less than 2 weeks to get back once I shipped it!

I was so pleased with the finished product. You can see the hard work that went into laying the medal into the wood. There was also a handwritten note in the package, which was such a nice touch. The epoxy and lacquer finish gives it such a beautiful look. It’s very durable and I know it will last a long time.

I think this is such a unique way to honor a runner’s hard work. You can even surprise a runner with a gift card and let them select the medal they want to preserve. They even make coaster sets with matching boxes.

  1. great ideas…a friend has used magnets that she got at a craft store to turn medals into fridge magnets, and she made this huge bag out of the ribbons that come with those medals that looked amazing…..I’ve gone through some of mine, there’s a place up here that take those medals we don’t want anymore and use them at events that involve handicapped children….
