Everyone likes the medallion. I had been using a Sharpie permanent marker
to sign my pieces for some time, but the medallion adds an extra touch of

highlight to make the light colored medallion stand out against a light
colored background. I like it so much I think I'm going to start using a
"cup" for all my projects.
