As you may know, I partnered up with a Viggen-owning mate in Hungary named Ivan to produce the Saab Design Shop, where we see some very groovy Saab T-shirts (new editions just approved and coming soon!).
What you may not know is that Ivan also makes custom Saab badges. He’s been doing it for over 18 months now and in that time, the badges have proven themselves weather-proof, carwash-proof and you-name-it-proof.
The badges are made from an ABS/acrylic based “sandwich” substrate that is micro-laminated with an automative industry grade metallic like surface. Both matte silver and a brushed aluminium surface (which is more popular) are available. All badges are precision laser cut from graphic designs that Ivan does himself.
There are two type of badges available:
- 3D: 1.6 mm, real 3D object, like the factory badges/emblems, suitable for slightly curved surface
- sticker: 0.5 mm, sticker-like, suitable for medium curved surface, however, more rigid than paper based stickers.
The beauty of this is that the sky’s the limit with what you can design. Ivan has done all sorts of custom designs for people. He has some standard badges that are readily available, too.
If you want to contact Ivan about any of these badges, or to get your own badge custom designed, you can email him at saabdesignshop-at-gmail.com
Here’s some of the things that have been done so far.
The previous post on this site featured the famous “Made in Trollhattan by Trolls” sticker. This is a badge version on the same theme.
The classic Griifins, made in mirror fashion so that they can go on the wings of your car and both face the same way. The most popular seller.
The standing moose in brushed aluminium finish.
And the same moose in matte silver…..
Got Nordic tuning? The badge is a must.
The old Saab plane logo for those who like to go old skool
