Awareness Badges And Unlimited Coloring

Show Support With Color

Public Safety Awareness Badges are a great way for departments to show support for a cause.  To support this need, Blackinton was the first to develop pink, blue, green, and purple finished awareness badges.  Because demand has grown for a more advanced use of color on metal badges we have developed a proprietary Unlimited Coloring technology.   It’s the first of its kind.  The technology enables us to incorporate color on a metal badge without disrupting the detail in the metal.  This unique technology led to Blackinton’s 2021 and 2022 NAUMD Innovation Awards.
Traditionally, adding color to a metal badge was limited to finishing an entire surface, or adding color within the metal walls of a badge.  For instance, adding a thin blue line to a badge design would require the creation of a new die.  Now, with our Unlimited Coloring technology we can add unique designs to your public safety awareness badges, economically, without the need for a new die.

Why An Awareness Badge?

  • Support Causes like Autism, Domestic Violence, Suicide Awareness, or any type of Cancer
  • Honoring Individuals such as Veterans on Veterans Day.  Stoneham PD is allowing officers to wear a camouflage badge during November with a center seal depicting the military branch they served in. Non-Veterans will wear the badge with a state seal.
  • Cultural Celebration such as Juneteenth, St. Patrick’s Day, or Columbus Day
  • Memorial Bands like the thin blue line or red, orange, and pink lines or a mourning band
  • Affiliation with a group or team illustrated on the badge with logo, flag, or other identifying symbol
