Services Offered

For 60 years we have crafted badges, medallions, and tools for industry.


In 1937, three skilled craftsmen founded Myers & Company, named after Tom Myers, the winner of a coin toss. They excelled in making identification and marking products and soon gained a stellar reputation in Australia. By the 1970s, business was booming, leading to a move to Seventeen Mile Rocks, Brisbane.

Over the next four decades, Myers & Company transformed into Myers Badges & Awards, continually upgrading its manufacturing processes for medallions, medals, pins, key rings, badges, and service awards.

Today, Myers Badges & Awards still crafts many products in Brisbane and collaborates with international partners to offer a wide range of items. The future holds more upgrades, but our dedication to craftsmanship and service remains unwavering.

Metal Stamping

At Myers Badges, the metal stamping process is executed with precision and expertise. Whilst utilising a powerful 500-tonne pneumatic press and specialised tools our skilled staff use their craftmanship and experience to create exquisite gold, silver, and brass medallions, as well as custom designs for badges, tags, and awards.

Myers Badges’ 500-tonne pneumatic press holds a unique distinction, as it is one of the few machines in the country capable of effectively stamping gold and silver medallions. This capability allows for the production of exclusive and highly prestigious items

The metal stamping process begins with the design and meticulously crafted dies. Each die is specifically tailored to meet the unique requirements of the medallion, badge, tag, or award being produced. The chosen metal material, such as gold, silver, or brass, is carefully selected. The press ensures that the force applied is evenly distributed, resulting in crisp and well-defined impressions.

Vinyl Printing and Cutting

Vinyl printing and cutting is a versatile and efficient method used to create durable PVC Adhesive Decals, Signage, Customised UV Stickers, Canvas Prints, Promotional banners, Posters, Displays, Advertising Materials for industrial applications. This process combines the benefits of high-quality printing with precise cutting techniques to produce long-lasting graphics suitable for various surfaces and environments.

To begin the process, high-resolution digital designs or artwork are created using graphic design software. These designs can incorporate logos, text, images, or any other visual elements required for the desired signage or decal. Once the design is finalised, it is transferred to a specialized software program that controls the vinyl printing and cutting equipment.

Vinyl printing involves the use of a wide-format inkjet printer specifically designed for printing on vinyl materials. These printers utilise solvent or eco-solvent inks that are resistant to fading, weathering, and abrasion, ensuring the durability of the final product. The printer deposits the ink onto a roll of vinyl material, which comes in various colours and finishes.

After the printing process, the vinyl needs to be cut into the desired shape or design. This is where the cutting equipment, such as a vinyl cutter or plotter, comes into play. The cutting machine is guided by the digital design file, and it precisely cuts through the vinyl material, removing the excess material and leaving behind the intended shape or graphic.

One of the advantages of vinyl cutting is its ability to produce intricate and detailed designs with sharp edges and clean lines. This precision makes it ideal for creating small text, intricate logos, or complex graphics. Additionally, the cutting process allows for the creation of custom shapes and sizes, giving businesses the flexibility to create signage and decals that suit their specific requirements.

Overall, vinyl printing and cutting provide a cost-effective and efficient solution for creating durable PVC adhesive decals and signage for industrial applications. With its versatility, precision, and long-lasting quality, this process allows businesses to effectively communicate their branding, safety information, or promotional messages in demanding environments.

Chemical Etching

The chemical etching process is a highly precise and efficient method used to create plaques on stainless steel and brass. This technique allows for intricate and detailed designs to be etched onto the metal surfaces, resulting in visually appealing and durable products.

To begin the process, a sheet of stainless steel or brass is thoroughly cleaned and prepped to ensure a smooth and uncontaminated surface. This step is crucial as any impurities can affect the quality of the etching. Once the metal is clean, it is coated with a layer of photo-sensitive resist material.

Next, a design template or artwork is printed onto a transparent film or photoresist material. This template contains the desired design, including the text, logos, and graphics that will be etched onto the metal surface. The film is carefully aligned and placed on top of the resist-coated metal sheet.

The entire assembly is then exposed to a UV light source. The UV light hardens the resist material, except for the areas covered by the design template. This creates a protective mask on the metal sheet, leaving the desired design areas exposed and ready for etching.

The metal sheet is then submerged into a chemical etchant solution, which typically contains acids or other chemicals that selectively dissolve the unprotected metal. The etchant gradually eats away at the exposed areas, creating depressions or cavities in the metal surface. The depth of the etching can be controlled by adjusting the etching time or the concentration of the etchant solution.

Once the desired depth and level of detail are achieved, the metal sheet is removed from the etchant solution and thoroughly rinsed to remove any remaining chemicals. The resist material is then stripped off, revealing the etched design on the metal surface.

To add colour to the nplaques, enamel paint is applied to the etched areas. The enamel fills the cavities, creating a vibrant and contrasting appearance against the metal background. This allows for the inclusion of coloured logos and graphic designs, enhancing the visual appeal of the finished product.

Finally, the plaques are typically polished and finished to enhance their overall appearance and durability. This can involve processes such as buffing, brushing, or coating with protective finishes to ensure longevity and resistance to corrosion.

Overall, the chemical etching process on stainless steel and brass offers a versatile and precise method for creating plaques with intricate designs. The combination of etching and enamel colour filling allows for the production of visually striking and long-lasting products suitable for a wide range of applications.

Laser Engraving

CO2 laser engraving is a versatile and highly effective method used to create precise and intricate designs on a wide range of organic materials. This type of laser engraving is particularly well-suited for working with materials such as wood, acrylic, glass, laminates, paper, plastic, stone, and textiles.

The process involves the use of a CO2 laser, which emits a high-powered beam of light that interacts with the surface of the material being engraved. The laser beam heats the material, causing it to vaporize or melt, and thus creating the desired design or mark. The intensity and duration of the laser beam can be controlled to achieve varying depths and levels of engraving.

CO2 laser engraving offers exceptional precision and accuracy, making it ideal for intricate patterns, fine details, and even small text. It allows for the creation of highly intricate designs that may not be achievable through other engraving methods.

In addition to engraving, CO2 lasers can also be used for annealing ceramic onto materials such as stainless steel, brass, and aluminium. This process involves heating the ceramic material to high temperatures and applying it to the surface of the metal, resulting in a durable and contrasting black mark. This annealed mark is resistant to extreme UV exposure and weathering, making it suitable for applications where durability is crucial.

CO2 laser engraving offers a wide range of possibilities for customization and personalization. It finds applications in various industries, including signage, awards and trophies, personalized gifts, architectural models, product branding, and many more. Its versatility, precision, and durability make CO2 laser engraving a popular choice for creating detailed and long-lasting marks on organic materials.
