We create sashes for promotional purposes, hen parties, beauty pageants and much more for both public and trade customers....

We know all about sash's but we thought we'd share a little bit of history with you...

The first sashes date back to the early 1800's (when we probably started making sashes) and formed part of the royal uniform (regalia) indicating authority above normal civilians. This was in a few years time copied by leaders across the globe in lesser countries without royalty looking to establish authority, with the main exponents being presidents and mayors.

The late 1800's saw sashes become all about authority with many armies including the British, American & Foreign Legion adopting them for senior officers to differentiate themselves from the crowd.

Let's fast forward to the current day... Sashes are still worn by namely royalty and senior officers at formal occasions to represent rank and commemorate achievements but the focus on sashes in the 20th century became on 'Corporate Sashes' or as we like to call them 'Promotional Sashes', they became popular at shows, trade events, parties and pageants. 

Here at Golden Finishes, we know all about out product and what makes them great. We even consider ourselves the go-to place for sashes for any need.

With many years’ experience (some would say maybe even hundreds) we consider ourselves the go to business for all things badges. We consider them patches one of our specialities here at Golden Finishes.

We have been making badges for all sorts of clients from all sorts of backgrounds for a very very long time ranging from the totally professional badges for organisations such as the police and army to the totally ludicrous weird and wacky for individuals. But you name it, we've probably made it at some point, our customers are a varied bunch to say the least.

Being the go to badge makers, we thought we'd pass on some of our wisdom to you. Here are some of our favourite facts about our badges (in no particular order of course):

  • We produce a huge amount of badges, just a shade over a whopping ONE MILLION badges per year!
  • The average stitch count for a badge is 6248! 
  • Badges go all the way back to the early ages, the same time we started producing them!
  • Badges are a garment decorator’s best kept secret – often said it’s the easiest way to cover up a little mistake.
  • Badges are a tricky business; you can’t always have DTG so people often ask for just the badge itself to sew on.

Told you, we know all about badges and patches…

So whatever your badge query or problem, we’re sure to have the answer. Get in touch today and we will be more than happy to help!
