We created our own medallion on illustrator and the laser cutter printed it out for us using wood. The first step is to sketch out your two designs (see the picture below).

The second step is to create your designs on illustrator.

First, you have to know how to use all the illustrator tools. We learned more about it watching a video on how to use the tools, we started creating our designs on a template Mr. Metz provided for us with detailed instructions such as the award shape needs to be 80mm by 80mm, a 5mm by 5mm hole at the top of your medal, etc.
