How to Buy a Custom Emblem for Your Car?

iStock-900x500.jpgThe first car emblem appeared in 1898 in the form of a St. Christopher statue on British statesman John Montagu’s Daimler. It was also the first custom emblem, which means it did not come from the manufacturer of the vehicle. Not long after, other automobile makers followed suit, and even third parties like French glassmaker Rene Lalique, whose masterpieces are still sought after up to this day.

If you’re planning to get a custom emblem for your car, the first thing you have to do is decide what type you want. Do you want it made by your manufacturer, or are you thinking of something more personal, such as an emblem representing a passion or hobby? The options can go on and on, and you just have to choose what’s right for you. Below are some of the most popular:

Aftermarket Parts

Some common car emblems these days represent certain aftermarket parts that the car owners may have installed. Examples are metal badges, window emblems and vinyl decals. These emblems are often a sign of support for the aftermarket brand or part.


Emblems that represent certain classic vehicles are popular too, especially among those who build custom or replica vehicles. They can make almost every car look stylish, especially more modern models from the same car maker. Some people even use them in a humorous way, such as putting a luxury car emblem on the hood of an economy vehicle. Take a look for more info at

You obviously have to take your vehicle into account as well. It can all be a matter of knowing what you want and what will enhance your car’s appearance. See more information at .
