If your an airsofter or something then I don't know, try them youself? Mount them with a staple gun?

If your actually a (Canadian) soldier then  you can hand them into your QM and get them done for free or take them to a professional dude to do up for you.  I go to a great guy in kingston.  I strongly recomend going to  a professional  guy and getting them done. When I had he CF do mine (through QM) for me they came back and I thought it was a joke. They did horrible work and I paid out of my pocket to have them redone.

Here are some instructions from an Aussie medal company, but they also suggest that you have a professional do it.

It' really not expensive.. I got mine done at http://www.williamscully.ca/ - you can mail them there and they'll do quickly and send them right back.

It really isn't expensive... really... I was too lazy to claim it even... It was not something I would want to botch myslelf...

One.  I'd like to know what rank you are?  Your profile shows you as an OC.  What is that?
Two.  What medals do you have?  As an OC?
Three.  Take them your base QM / Clothing stores and have them mounted for free. Or
Four.  Take them to your local base museum and have them mounted for about $7.00 each.
Cheers, BYTD    :army:

Well, base clothing doesn't do medals anymore, the good WO Ulrich is apparently away for a while, I have no time to go listen (or be lectured?) by Mr Gunther Stahr at his residence... what are my options to get my medals mounted and to get miniatures (looking for quality work).

Gunther Stahr at his residence...

IIRC he and his business partner Bill (don't remember the last name) work out of St Albert. I had no problems getting my medal and a friend of mine's done, both within 5 business days. Don't really know about the stories though...

I have a business that mounts medals in Edmonton. Turn around is 7 Days. You can see my work in my gallery on my website at www.defencemedals.ca or link thru one of my ads on this site.

I also work on the base so can meet up for drop off or pick up or meet at another spot of your choosing.

My email is defencemedalscanada@shaw.ca

Gunther Stahr's business partner is a long time member at the St. Albert Legion. Bill Dickson will pick up and drop off your medals here at the Legion if it's easier.

What's your experience with court mounting? Good buddy of yours? Medal mounting is not *rocket appliances*. You haven't even joined the Reserves yet.

And what's with the avatar? Did you get a jump course as a Cadet? Hard to tell because of your bare profile.

He mounted my 2 cadet medals and ribbons, He also mounted my grandfathers korean war medals. He is an adult. Yes i was in cadets but not any more, i am only interested in reserves i am looking more full time at ROTP and also under avatar those wings were an option so i chose them. I never pretended to impersonate a member of the Canadian Armed Forces.

Thanks for the insight.

Have you had a jump course?

Recce, ease up a bit mate. Countyboy is probably 16-17 years old and outside of cadets has no experience as to what is acceptable in military circles. He probably saw the wings, thought they looked cool or maybe that is something that he has set as a personal goal. I'm sure that you weren't trying to sound aggressive, just how text comes across I guess.

Edit: I see Countyboy has cleared things up.

OK I can buy all that.

Usually though, on this site, we don't use avatars here that haven't been earned.

There are SAR trained guys here that might not take kindly to it.

If you haven't already you should read the guidelines.

Ok i changed my profile pic! haha you were right I am 17 and going in to my final year of high school. My goal is to become a member of the Military as most of my family has served. I am not sure how i will serve Canada at this time but i will serve in some way! if i did offend any SARTECH's i do apologize I am not the ex-cadet who runs around saying i was in the military and that i know everything about it.... cant stand those guys! I understand why you gave me a hard time to make sure i was not one of those types.

all in all this has moved very far away from the mounting  :P Pro court honestly is great check out his facebook page he post photo's i highly recommend him, he did a fantastic job on my medals and my grandfathers and would happily recommend him to anyone!

If they have such strong opinions and take offence to the wings being used as a profile photo then it should be an option as a profile photo or each profile photo should be approved before its used.

It's a programming thing. All avatars need to be uploaded into a single category. There's no limitations on their use.

As an example, we've had many here using different rank, including CWO. We finally had to make it a rule that Cadets had to use 'Cadet' in front of their rank.

They were confusing noobs that came here for advice, only to find out after a series of exchanges that it was a Cadet Chief they were talking to and not a real CWO.

Cadet information is normally placed in your profile so people know of where you speak.

You should try that. Most of this conversation didn't need to take place if we knew right away that you were a Cadet and what your qualifications were.

We've been at this a long time. There is a method to our madness.

This had nothing to do with technical advice, merely promoting a business. And I am no longer a cadet so i don't feel its right i say i am
