CRFG Name Badge Service

Many CRFG folks have purchased the “name badge” from the Marketplace but received a three-piece kit of parts and an instruction sheet. They had to arrange their own engraving and assembly of the parts. Engraving shops often charged an extra setup fee for the one badge being produced. Now when you buy a name badge kit from The Marketplace, you can also order the assembly and engraving service for $5.50 each badge plus the cost of the kit, for a total of $10.50 each. The price includes ground shipping in the U.S. If a chapter wishes to order in batches of 10 or more the unit price will be reduced to $5.00 for a total of $10.00 each. Two lines can be shown on the badge: chapter name and member name. Subscribers with no chapter membership can show just their names.

Badge Engraving Service: Special arrangements have been made to engrave name badges without the normal “front-end” setup charges. The vendor will engrave and assemble one badge for $5.50 or $5.00 each for 10 or more with the same chapter name. Badge kit cost is added to these prices.
