Follow A Custom Badge Through The Factory - To Police Week

The Methuen Massachusetts Police Department worked with us in developing our new remembrance badge that they wore in observance of Police Week.  ​We followed the new custom badge, B3606 & B3606-EO, through the factory as it was created.  We took short videos (below) of the various steps in the badge making process – to give you an idea of what goes into making a badge.   The custom badges were recently featured in the local newspaper Click Here to read the article.

Take a look at our videos and let us know which step in the badge making process you found to be the most interesting.
