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. Specifically, a technology that 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. Previously, 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.
