Planning for a Meeting?

While Hodges Badge has long been associated with award ribbons, and more recently with other types of awards and trophies, we wanted to let you know that we can also help out when you are planning a meeting or reunion.

  • Need name tags but don’t want “Hello my name is” stickers? Try our custom printed stick-on tags. For a nicer touch, our pin on name tags match a color in your logo with a ribbon at the top.
  • We also have stock ID ribbons for traditional responsibilities (Board Member, Sponsor, Official, Speaker, Volunteer etc.) and both horizontal and vertical tape top ribbons you can use to attach to name badges.
  • Buttons are also popular at reunions, and you can even put individual names and photos on them for no extra charge. Turn them into a keychain and they’re a simple souvenir.
  • Lastly, our banners can be hung indoors or out to let everyone know about your event.

Have you ever used our products for anything besides a horse show, dog show, fair, or athletic competition? How did it turn out? Let us know in the comments!

The Backstory on our Banners

It started out like many other projects around here.  We never meant to get into the ‘banner business’ – but here we are.  In 2007, we bought a Roland VersaCamm printer to make stickers.  And we did actually use it to print a huge number of stickers, but eventually we bought other equipment that was even better for stickers, leaving us with a large and unused printer.

The VersaCamm was billed as a versatile printer, and it is.  We use it for window clings, canvas prints, and the subject of the day, banners.  Made with high quality vinyl, outdoor grade inks, and solid brass grommets, our banners are made to withstand the weather. 

Many customers are happy with our 2’ x 3’ or 3’ x 5’ banners, but we can make banners up to 4’ wide up to 100’ long.  Last week our friends at Matouk Textile Works in Fall River, MA had a grand opening for their solar energy project and we made them the largest banner we have ever produced– it was 3’ x 25’!  Here is a picture of the banner, and another showing our machine while printing.
