Welcome to PRESENTOS

Welcome to Presentos

We are manufacturers of hand-crafted and painted three dimensional ships’ badges of the Royal Australian Navy.  Our badges are Australian made, by sailors, for sailors…

We craft durable mementos commemorating the service and events that are significant in the lives of our customers.

We provide ship’s and defence organisation badges in a standard format mounted on a board from $84.00 each.

We also work with our customers to create ‘brag boards’ that represent their service career.  In many cases we are able to produce contemporary and historical badges to suit.

If you’re looking to mark your career, or a loved one’s, please contact us for design and pricing options.

If you’re looking to make a purchase in excess of 10 badges, please contact us for pricing.

We are primarily an ‘on-line business’ and contact is best achieved using our contact form or email (  This way we have a record of your query and we can reply promptly. However, we understand there are some people who are not connected to the internet and obtain a referral from a friend.  In these circumstances, please contact us via phone.

Our website is still under construction and we’d be happy for any feedback you care to provide.

Important  Notice:  

Good day folks,
We have spent some time looking at our pricing arrangements for our hand made products. The time, skill and materials costs have been mounting over the three years we have been making the plaques with ships badges on them.
On reflection, we have noted that the price we were selling at had been stable for over 8 years.
We have chosen to continue to source our wooden boards from Australian suppliers rather than importing from Asia. It has always been part of our business ethos to keep money in Australia to help other small businesses remain solvent. There are precious few suppliers of these products in Australia, and they are hard to find.
We have also used more modern materials to cast the badges with (far more resilient that fibreglass resin and significantly more cost) along with a more resilient mounting adhesive.
To that end, we have reviewed our pricing structure to ensure that we remain in business and to reflect the quality of the work we are turning out to the world.
We look forward to your continued support of our bespoke made product.
(And we have a significant backlog of orders right now. Estimated delivery is three months minimum. Feel free to order and we will send invoices as they are ready to deliver.)

At present, the online store will be open but we have disabled the ability to pay at ordering so that we can communicate with you about timelines and delivery arrangements.

Currently, we have delays of up to three months to fulfil orders, hence the disabling of the payment system in our online store.  We will respond to orders and when ready to send, we will send details for payment.

We understand that from time to time, personal circumstances in life may arise where you may have a specific time critical need for a "presento". Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss how we may be able to help.  We will, in those circumstances, try our best to facilitate your request. 

We look forward to working with you to create durable high-quality mementos of your service history.
