About Us...The Hartford Badges story...
Hartford Badges was a spin off of Hartford Engraving, the first computerized engraving house in the country. Hartford Engraving was one of the first to use ID card printers for name badge production. The division producing full color name badges and ID cards was later spun off as a separate company, becoming Hartford Badges.
Hartford Badges is a wholly owned division of Decision Support Dynamics, LLC. Managed and owned by the brother and sister team of Peter and Ann Kingsbury. We moved to our new office in May of 2000. We're located in Western New York State, about 20 miles south of Buffalo.
