When Pamela from SA Medal Hangers contacted me to ask if they could make me a custom made medal hanger for review, I jumped at the chance. I’ve been eyeing these babies out for ages and wanting to order one, especially since I finished the Two Oceans Half Marathon but somehow, something always came up and I never got around to ordering one.
After my year of transformation last year, and having the running bug well and truly bite me, I knew exactly what I wanted and Pamela got to work coming up with a design I loved!
Within a week, my gorgeous medal hanger was delivered to me, along with instructions on how to hang it and today we finally got around to mounting it up next to my bed. I wanted to hang it there so that every morning, when I wake up, the first thing I see is my medal hanger with my medal hangers and it will always remind me of what I can do when I believe in myself!
I started SA Medal Hangers in mid 2013, after looking for some way to display my medals. I saw a few awesome ideas online, but all international companies – there was nothing similar in South Africa. At the time I was also battling with a 3 year old that was not coping very well in Day Care so was looking for something that I could do part time, maybe from home. When I realised that there were no South African companies offering anything similar, and with the exchange rate importing them was nearly impossible, I decided to open SA Medal Hangers. What was initially meant to be a part time business suddenly became full time when the insurance company I was working for closed it Port Elizabeth branch, ironically the day after I had the first batch of medal hangers ready to sell. I must have been the only person in the meeting when we were told that we were being retrenched that was elated. J That was August, 2 years ago.
SA Medal Hangers is still the only company in South Africa that specialises in personalised or custom made medal hangers. We have also added personalised Rosette hangers to our range and more recently stable door name plaques. Our medal hangers make great gifts and are a perfect way to motivate young children as we can do their names instead of a specific sport – making it easier when they change sports or do a number of different activities. We can also do corporate logos, schools or sports clubs.
Our prices range from R350.00 to R775.00 for our standard sizes, but can do larger or smaller hangers on request.
And there is literally a design for everyone, whether your sport of choice is triathlon’s, swimming, running, cycling, horse riding, fishing, you name it, SA Medal Hangers has something for everyone!
And you can win one too! Follow the entry prompts below to stand a chance of winning a custom made SA Medal Hanger of your choice valued at R675!
