What people say

We figure what customers and others say about us is more important than what we say about ourselves. So here's some of the feedback we receive. If you're a customer, we'd love to capture your view too.

“Tribe are always keen to use their design knowledge to take a 2D idea and make it 3D. Their recommendations are always on point. It makes my job as a designer much easier to know they will take my idea and make it awesome. Thanks Tribe.”

Caroline Bassett, Senior Production Co-ordinator


"Our client was looking for something special and a 'point of difference' for their elite badges, not only did Tribe offer valuable suggestion’s regarding the manufacturing, they were also prepared to trial a bevel edge finish which our client was desperate to have. Tribe surpassed ours and the clients expectations. Bravo!!"

Carol Braganza

Lions Club of Petone Inc.

“I just received the package of badges and they look awesome. On the whole the badges are the best I have come across. I showed them to my team members and they too passed on good comments.”


National HOG Rally 2010 NZ

“Fantastic job. The best badge I've ever seen. Detail is fantastic!”

Geoff Styche

Taekwondo Union of New Zealand

“Well our Taekwondo Nationals Tournament went well. Everyone appeared to have a good time and we have received many good compliments regarding the event. There were also lots of positive comments on the medals and the quality of them. In fact some wanted the medals rather then the trophies that TUNZ supplied. In fact I had one instructor buy an additional 2 gold medals to take back to sponsors as a Thank You. So great work. It was good dealing with you. We have our final wrap up meeting on the weekend of the 10th and will be deciding if we put our hats in the ring next year to run it. Most likely we will so I will be back for more medals next year. So once again thank you for your contribution in making our event the success it was.”

“Our experience of working with Tribe was exceptional from start to finish. We were impressed with the level of personal service, efficiency of the design process, cost and delivery time. However it was Tribe customized product innovation that gave us the best return on investment. We now have a product which, in an over-crowded cosmetic industry, allows Trilogy to stand apart from the ordinary.”

Alastair McIsaac, Managing Director

Plastisigns Ltd

“Mark and his team, have consistently produced product that is not only well fabricated and tidy but always on time. On some occasions when an urgent order has been required by myself and well within the normal production time restraints, the team has always pulled out all the stops and still completed the order, packed and delivered it to me on time. On closer inspection of all other products lines, quality is the first thing that springs to mind. All detail and quality has been kept even in the most smallest of products. The skill of the staff comes out on every item fabricated from the design, to plating, the paint shop, to the administration. It becomes a great team effort.”
