HOC Badges

I'd like a nice new enamel badge to tell the worls I'm a Hesketh owner... This might be "right out of the park" thinking, but I thought something like the "Dropped H" Hesketh Logo, with the word "OWNER" neatly centred between the lowest points of the Hs might fit the bill nicely...

How does that sound..?

That sounds good, the design as well. It has been looked into NOT CHEAP.

Hi Dave...

I've had quite a few club/rally badges made and I think that a ball-park figure for the 100 badges plus setup would come in at less than £350...   I could get a few quotes for cloisenne (hard enamel) type with this logo:

What is wrong with our existing enamel badges ? why do we need new ones when I have stock ?

Well... The subject of badges came up (as you know Terry) as an anniversary "special" but seems to have unfortunately stalled due to costs... I don't have a photo of the existing club badge, but it's described as being 19mm (3/4") diameter, so I'm assuming it's similar in design to the logo on the top/right of this forum...

I much prefer the Dropped H logo (others may not share my view), which would assume a largely rectangular shape and (I think) be quite attractive...

That said... I'd happily add images of the existing badges to our website... There may well be folk who'd love one... Are there any blue ones left..?  I may be up for one of those myself...
