Here are the stickers of the Adafruit skill badges, coming “hot off the press”! We’ll have them in store very soon 🙂
In the second video you can see a fun production innovation, the barcodes for our inventory system are printed on the non-used portion of the sticker. This makes it super easy to add to stock, track and make sure there are not any shipping issues since we scan each item before we ship it!
On a related note, all our stickers and badges are made in the USA. And the power used for the sticker and embroidered machines are from solar power. We’ll be posting more details like this soon, but when you’re considering buying things from the various companies out there we hope these little details like solar powered and where things are made helps make the decision.

The details do matter, and they are appreciated.
And thanks for demonstrating once again (with my most recent order) that your customer service is top notch!
It’s clear that you guys respect your customers, and it’s a mutual relationship. 🙂
Have to agree with Pete! The details do matter. I love the whole badge and sticker project. I had a conversation with Jim and Jordan from ReMade tonight and they were telling me about how they can see a resume page of badges.
Keep up the great work. And thanks for the shoutout early this week on the Makers Going Pro book.
