Why Belt Buckles for Promotions or Recognition?
There’s no question that there are less expensive ways to promote or reward, but in the long run, it’s been proven that people cherish and retain for many years,
items of quality and craftsmanship, rather than your typical giveaway item. And more importantly, belt buckles are a high profile clothing accessory that normally
represents a cause or vision when displayed by the wearer, and if customized to their group or organization, there is no better body jewelry available.
Belt Buckles and Their History
Belt buckles are today experiencing a true revival of their popularity – both from a fashion and recognition perspective. They are once again an integral accessory
of men's and women's wardrobes.
Many people might think that belt buckles got their start in the early days of the Western frontiers, but that’s just not so. Many a cowboy preferred to wear
suspenders to hold up their pants, whereas the many buckles of the American westerns really only represented the fashion preferences of Hollywood. Though the
western style buckle is still a very sought after design template – it shares its spotlight with many other interesting custom shapes in the ACE Buckles line of
belt buckles – all unique in their own right.
Belt Buckles have evolved through the many centuries, taking design elements from around the globe to form the myriad of design templates utilized by ACE Buckles
today. Some notable buckle wearers of the past include both men and women from the Asian Bronze age around 2000 BC, with modifications made and displayed through
the Middle Ages. In those times, it was only the rich and/or powerful who could afford to purchase the materials needed for the manufacture of these fine buckles.
Not always for fashion, belts and buckles served as functional parts of the wardrobe in days gone by – from a holder of swords to a closure for tunics and robes –
many a belt and buckle were fastened as part of a uniform of battle and pageantry.
The use of a buckle to complete the look of a uniform is not lost on the market of today – with many of the most popular lines of buckles being designed and worn by
the professions of today. For instance, still a representation of status and rank, military buckles in many cases are designed to illustrate rank and perhaps
decorative vital information. Additionally, many professions have chosen to use belt buckles to signify their association or affiliations, such as the police /
firefighters / truck drivers / tradesman / veterans / motorcycle clubs – and of course the traditional rodeo or western belt buckle. More and more people in today's
society realize that the belt buckle can definitely personalize and dress up a uniform of any sort – and offer some expression of individuality so important to all
Today’s fashion buckles are once again an integral part of a person's wardrobe for both men and women. They come in all shapes, sizes and designs – in many cases
through ACE Buckles with no additional mould or die charges to the purchaser. Many metals are available for your selection – some for their practical strength – and
some for their beauty and polishing attributes. Fine Pewter is one of the most popular choices today – with the added selling feature of being totally lead free and
carrying a very high perceived value. There’s something for everyone – all it takes is a little imagination to realize your vision.
Custom Belt Buckles - A Great Value
Custom belt buckles are a great way to show your individuality, while strengthening your brand or recognition with your clients and customers. Whether you create a
stylized version of your corporate or team logo / a favorite design theme of your organization or group / a collector’s item of your favorite pastime or hobby, your
unique flare does not have to come at any great expense to the members of your group – nor should it.
Here at ACE Buckles, we work very hard with our suppliers to ensure that we keep our ‘minimum’ volume quantities and ‘domestic pricing’ among the lowest in North
America. With most popular designs manufactured in two-dimensional format, you may even avoid unnecessary ‘die or mould charges’ as a result of volume and preferred
pricing that we’ve negotiated over our long association with our manufacturers.
If your budget allows, or your design demands it, we have many manufacturing techniques to enhance the value of your custom designs. We can elevate the appeal of
your image using various layering and 3D processes at our fingertips – or perhaps steer you towards the use of photographic enhancements that represent your image
in halftone photo format – or perhaps create your design in a highly polished die-struck brass material. As you can see, there really are no limitations to the
level of quality you can achieve.
