AB Emblem does NASA patches.

What company or companies has a contract with NASA manufacturing mission decals and pins.

Do they have a website?

Winco International produces the official mission pins for NASA. They do have a website but do not sell individual pins to the general public. Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, Countdown Creations and other retailers offer Winco pins.

NASA's official mission decals are produced by SpaceCoast Cover Service (Ken Havekotte). They does not have a website, though Ken is a member of this board and responds to inquires. He also provides decals to Countdown for sale to collectors.

Okay, my memory is a little fuzzy as where I have purchased these pins. I believe I purchased them all from the KSC Visitor Center in person or through the mail. I pulled out three pins from where I store them in a bag.

Two have the same folding tab, blue color outside folded similar as a book of matches leaving a margin of whiteness of the inside showing the mission number.

The other is all white with blue font lettering. The all white tab has WINCO as the manufacturer for STS-88.

The other two have two different manufacturers.

HO HO Art & Craft Int'l Co in New York, New York on STS-83 inside tab.

STS-93 has Perfect Emblems & Dies Corp also from New York City.

All times are CT (US)
