MOUNTING MEDALS & RIBBONS

            A suggested layout for your Tribute to a Veteran Case, Deluxe Awards Cases or Combination Awards and Flag Case can be found in the exchange, store, catalog, or internet web site where you purchased the item.  

            The raised mounting surfaces on either side of the case are intended for mounting medals, but may be used to mount other significant items.  The raised mounting surface in the top center position is used to mount a branch of service emblem, a very special medal, or another significantly special item which deserves the place of highest honor within the display.  Badges, medals, ribbon rack, and other items may be mounted above the wood plaque in the bottom center of the Tribute to a Veteran or Deluxe Awards Case.  This plaque provides a raised surface for an engraved plate (not supplied) with name, special dates, etc.  (Plates are supplied by the engraver of your choice and the cost for the plate is usually included in the cost per letter charges.)  The Deluxe Awards Case wood plaque accepts a 2 in wide by 4 in. long plate.    Badges, medals, a ribbon rack and other items may be mounted above the wood plaque.  The Tribute to a Veteran Case wood plaque accepts a 1-1/2 in. x 3 in. plate.  An engraved plate is typically mounted directly on the crushed velvet fabric in the Combination Awards and Flag Case.

            When mounting items equipped with clutch back fasteners, find the point where the shaft of the stud will penetrate the back.  Use an instrument such as an awl to make holes through the back.  Mount the item and affix the clutch back fastener at the rear of the case.  To mount medals or rank pins equipped with studs on the raised mounting surfaces, place the medal over the strip and center it in the location you have chosen.  Press the stud into the raised surface as far as it will go.  Discard the clutch back fastener, as it is not needed.

            To mount items with pin fasteners, insert the pin through the velvet fabric about half the length of the pin.  Use a flat instrument such as a butter knife or flat blade screwdriver to stop the progress of the pin, force it back out of the fabric and raise the pin head above the surface.  Fasten the pin into the clasp.

            Other items or memorabilia may be mounted using glue, but extreme care should be taken not to drop glue on the uncovered velvet surface.

            Any type of dust or lint removal instrument may be used to clean the velvet.  If tape is used, "sticky side out", gently roll it over the velvet, taking care not to touch the gold border.  The inside surface of the glass will also require cleaning.  Tighten the screws on the back to ensure the case remains dust free.

            The Deluxe Awards Case is equipped with a self leveling hanger.  It hangs flush against a wall when hung with a suitable size flat head nail, screw, or picture hanger.

The Combination Awards and Flag Case is equipped with two mirror hangers.  To hang the case insert two screws or two nails in the wall.  Wire can be strung between the two hangers if a single nail or screw is used to hang the case.           

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.  When the need arises, please ask your exchange, store, or catalog about other of our fine products, or check our web site.
