Our mission

To help you recognise success

The team at Badges and Medals come to work every day to help our clients recognise success.

Everyone loves the feeling of winning and succeeding and our mission is to recognise it and provoke pride in our society today.

Do you find it difficult in finding the appropriate award, how to design them, what your budget needs to be, and what is actually available?

From our research we have found that if we can service these issues, with excellence and passion, we are the company for you.

What we do

As mentioned above we are hunting out opportunities to recognise success in every sector of the human life-cycle.

We are striving to be world class in what we do, by continuously evolving as a business and making life easier for the industries we choose to be in. To do this we are innovating and networking with our partners to come up with great solutions to fix the problems in the awards industry.

Badges and Medals works hard to build lasting partnerships with our key stakeholders – government bodies, the design community, our valued staff, events and organisers and our manufacturing partners. We believe developing a great improving culture is the catalyst for ongoing success for all of us.

“In a world full of promises, we will be the people that deliver”

  • Capability to hold stock to save long re-order cycles
    e.g. we manufacture 500 units, you get the great bulk pricing, take 250 today get invoiced for them and order next 250 when you need them. Try us.
  • Competitive pricing without effecting quality
    Ok so there are 2 types of businesses in our industry one that manufactures all their goods in-house and distributes and the other who imports from off shore locations and ships out. The 1st being great quality but not so cost effective, and the 2nd can be very cheap but quality can slip as there is no control. Whereas at Badges and Medals, one of NZ’s longest standing medal manufacturers, we combine a long well established legacy in medal manufacturing with great and reliable off-shore connections to bring you a cost effective quality product you will be proud to receive and present.
  • World class design capabilities
    Welcome to the world of design, unleash your creativity now, we love it. “your idea, our challenge”
  • Market leading industry and product knowledge
    We believe that knowledge is gained by sharing it so we are always learning and wanting to help and improve in every way. If you have a question or some advice please let us know.
