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.

Our Production Process

bulletOur production process uses Dye-Sublimation, printed into polished PVC for permanently vibrant colors and sharp detail
bulletThis printing process can produce up to 16,000,000 colors on a name badge or photo ID card. The skyís the limit!
bulletA clear protective overlay provides UV protection and keeps the badge from fading
bulletFull color badges print at 300 DPI with a full bleed for photographic quality
bulletOur full color process is more versatile than engraving and unlike hot stamps our colors wonít rub or chip off
bulletThe full color process gives much more artistic freedom than was ever available with traditional engraved badges
