  • Patent number: 5191682
    Abstract: A method of manufacture of a badge and badge finding comprises the provision of a backer body with an S-shaped cavity into which is inserted an S-shaped portion of a pin. A double-sided adhesive cover is applied to the backer body to cover the cavity and thereby prevent the S-shaped portion of the pin from leaving the cavity. A liner covers the adhesive on the outer side of the cover. When the badge finding is to be fastened to an article such as a badge body, the liner is removed and the exposed adhesive is pushed against the badge body thereby completing the badge. Thus, the badge may be easily and quickly assembled without messy gluing, molding, welding or crimping. These badge findings may be brought to a trade show and affixed to different kinds of name tags or name badges without the use of a press, a welding machine or messy gluing operations.
