I personally order from Icing Images. I purchase the gold label inks and never have a problem with fading red or black. I say that because it could be the quality of the ink. I would contact your ink provider and ask for assistance.
Sunkissed,   Welcome to CC.  I went to your profile to get an idea of your skill level but didn't see any posted cakes.   Without knowing your skill level, it's hard for me to say if you are priced accordingly.   I CAN tell you that I personally wouldn't tackle a life size guitar replica for less than $700.   As an experienced business owner, I am often met with clients who are uneducated as to how much custom cakes really cost.  Just recently, a bride contacted me...
This really reminds me of the Seersucker cake I made:!Seersucker/zoom/c1w0q/image1zae!Seersucker/zoom/c1w0q/imagezz5   Of course, I smoshed the lines a bit when I embossed them with the seersucker material.  The lines looked just like that cake before I embossed them.   My method was exactly as @AZCouture mentioned.  I used an extruder.  Be prepared this takes much longer than it seems.
Try to see if blue prints dot com has the specs available. That will help in getting the right dimensions.
This is the exact reason there are so many flavor possibilities. I'm always amazed at the varied tastes of my clients. I have noticed that those who like the white vanilla typically prefer it to the yellow almond and vice versa. It's rare someone likes both of those equally. Some people love the subtle taste of my lemon while others prefer the baker down the street with a more prominent lemon flavor. People vary in size, shape, color, and taste!
No apology necessary. It is an awesome kewl cake. I don't mean to speak for the op. I could have misunderstood the question. It sounded to me like she wants it to look like the medal. We'll have to wait for claification.
Which one.
@enga that really is a great cake. I think the OP is specifically inspired by a military medal. I was Navy myself and recognize the officer insignia. Chevrons are typically associated with enlisted and would be very inappropriate in that context.
Is the whole cake the medal? Ifbso, I'd cut the shape of the medal then I would use fondant ropes to get the stems of the leaves. I'd make even smaller ropes for the detail ribbing. Then, is cover the whole thing in fondant being sure to curve into the ridges. Paint with cosmetic sponge leaving a bit of color in the ridges. Dust the whole thing with luster
