About products and suppliers

A sheriff's badge has historical context as a symbol representing authority and protection. It was believed that these badges protected against evil; over time, they have come to signify the representation of an officer responsible for safeguarding the ordinary person. The symbol is a sheriff star with five, six, or seven points. The color of the badge can be gold or silver and, in some cases, purple or blue. Customizable sheriff badges with specific names and numbers can be purchased.

Kinds of sheriff badge pins

A variety of sheriff badge pins can be purchased and customized. Badges will differ in shape, color, and customizable text and symbols. Flat or rounded corners can be selected when looking at various sheriff star badges available for sale on Custom artwork can be added in addition to text. When designing law enforcement badges, it is essential to have a place for a badge number and, in some cases, a name. The thickness of the badge needs to be considered, as well as whether it will be placed on the belt or directly on the uniform. If the badge has a pin system behind it or a clasp, it is essential to see what will fit better on the material that the uniforms are made from.

Material used when making sheriff badges pins

Badges can be made from metal or plastic. In some cases, plastic is preferred because it is lighter than metal, but metal tends to have more weight and is very durable for longevity. Other materials that can be used are textiles and rubber. Deputy sheriff badges are commonly made from brass or aluminum because they are shiny and can be illuminated at night. Copper and stainless steel can also be used in some cases. The cost of the badge will vary greatly depending on the material used to make the badge. The badge is sometimes attached directly to the uniform but, in some cases, may be attached to a belt, bag, or even a wallet.

The making of sheriff badges

Badges are made from offset printing on the material used to create the custom sheriff badges. After a graphic designer designs the badge symbol on a computer, it is made by a stamping contraption. The stamped metal is cut neatly, and the rough edges are removed. A pin is attached to the back, and essential information can be engraved here. Sometimes, wet blasting gives the badge a cleaner and more finished look.
