It’s Back! 3W Rosette Special

Earlier this spring we had a promotion that turned out to be quite popular.  Due to customer request, we have brought back the 3W Rosette Special.  From now through November 30, all Empire3W, Ideal3W, and Trent3W rosettes are on sale.  These are our classic rosettes with a twist to cut costs.  They feature a white gold rim center with any stock logo, a white center streamer with customized gold print and the rosette top and side streamers in your place color.

Your custom print cannot change from ribbon to ribbon (that means no placing or divisions can be printed).  Thinking of ordering multicolor or specialty side streamers?  Add them to your 3W rosette (standard charges apply) to take advantage of the savings.

In a hurry?  Rush orders can still take advantage of this offer.

Have a question? Leave a comment, send an email to, or call Customer service at 800-556-2440.

Press from an unlikely source

The Associated Press has been circulating a story today on the passing of Miss Ellie, the 17 year old Chinese Crested Hairless dog who became world famous in 2009 after winning Animal Planet’s “World’s Ugliest Dog” contest.  Featured prominently in the photo with the story is the Hodges Badge Company blue Ideal rosette she won at the contest held at the Sonoma-Marin fair.

A while back I wrote a post giving some examples of some of the more unique or different events our ribbons and rosettes have been used for.  I guess I should have added “Ugliest Dog” contests to the list.  RIP Miss Ellie.
