Portafold Badge

Post by Admin » Sun, 30 May 2010, 4:21 pm

As mentioned in a previous post, I've been investigating the possibilities of getting the Portafold badges re-made.

I also mentioned that I wasn't going to get some made unless I felt that they were 100% in both their quality and authenticity. The good news is I've found a suitable company to produce them. As you may know the original had reflective chrome lettering, and that's hard to combine with colour print and turn into a hard wearing, sun bleaching proof, external use sticker.

Anyway, the company who can do them for me also produce all the carriage labels for South West Trains, so that will give you some idea as to how hardy they are.

They are/have:
:arrow: Scratch Resistant
:arrow: Fire Resistant
:arrow: Sun Bleaching Proof
:arrow: External Grade Material
:arrow: External Grade Adhesive

And unfortunately they're going to cost £12.50 each. I know several people have already stated an interest in ordering these but could you post a reply on this topic so I can get an idea of numbers before I spend my cash on them.

Many thanks
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!

Hi Matthew,
You can count on me for one, & 'Poppy' will hopefully look resplendent with her new badge on show!
Thanks again,
So many repairs, so little time!
