Show your support for open source hardware! This is the badge Adafruit donated to the 2011 open hardware summit in addition to financially sponsoring the summit. Each attendee received this badge and a discount code for Adafruit in their summit "goodie bags". Adafruit is making these badges available at cost for anyone who wishes to get one. When the open source hardware organization has a destination web site and/or foundation Adafruit will also donate badges for promotion.
This beautiful badge is made in the USA.
The badge is skillfully designed and sturdily made to last a life time, the backing is iron-on but the badge can also be sewn on.
Adafruit's embroidered badges are manufactured in partnership with AMBRO Manufacturing located in NJ, USA. AMBRO is a family owned and operated business since 1990 that celebrates open-source with Adafruit Industries. You can meet their team here. AMBRO uses non-toxic soy based, water soluble and environmentally friendly printing supplies, threads and more when possible. AMBRO has over 250 solar panels that generate 50,000 Kilowatt hours per year. Their equipment runs solar powered, so the wonderful things AMBRO and Adafruit have worked together on are made with the sun! AMBRO Manufacturing was recognized by Impressions Magazine, a leading trade publication in the garment printing and embroidery business, who published an article highlighting AMBRO and their commitment to their environmentally focused manufacturing practices. Adafruit knows you have a lot of choices as to where you spend your money and time, we hope our open-source values, commitment to green technologies and partners helps make the decision easier and fun!
