Blackinton Partnership

Eagle Engraving has a long and successful partnership with Blackinton. The combined knowledge, passion, and dedication of our companies will ensure you get the perfect product every time.

Enamel Commendation Bars, Commendation Ribbons, and Metal Slide Holders

We are proud to sell Blackinton's Recognition series Commendation bars. These quality metallic commendation bars are made with durable, richly colored enamel backgrounds.

Used in conjunction with slide holders (sold separately) these bars will command everyone's attention and display the wearer's dedication and service to their organization at a glance. The Slide Bar System allows perfectly aligned award bars with a minimal amount of clutch backs to be displayed on uniforms for law enforcement, firefighters, EMS and military.

As you can see below, these slide holders are soldered together to prevent awkward misalignment.
