Blue Diamond Athletic Displays, INC. – The World’s Premier Medal Display Company
Meet the Posmers…
At Blue Diamond Athletic Displays INC., we design, engineer, and manufacture High End Athletic Displays. We specialize in combining Artistic Elements with state of the Art Design and Manufacturing Techniques to create a means for all athletes alike to celebrate their athletic journeys and accomplishments.
The best thing co-founders Ken and Nell Posmer did at the outset was to NOT look at the market and other existing products. In doing so, Ken with his 31 years of design and manufacturing experience teamed up with his professional artist wife Nell, and created something truly unique, something truly beautiful.
Their blend of experience and combined skill sets, enable them to create amazing Displays that are Art Quality and become instant conversation pieces wherever they are mounted for the price of a good pair of running shoes.
As endurance athletes, Ken & Nell understand the challenges, amount of effort, sacrifice and dedication their athletes face each and every day. This awareness fuels Blue Diamond’s customer focus to be the very best in the industry.
Although Ken & Nell are as “Mom and Pop” and as “Hands On” as it gets, and proud of it, Blue Diamond Athletic Displays, INC. is diverse in their product offerings. With a plethora of CAD/CAM and Graphics Software to work with, unsurpassed manufacturing horsepower, and a professional artist on staff, Blue Diamond has the ability to handle orders ranging from one special customized Display to high volume for larger events.
The high quality Blue Diamond brand that is known throughout the world has allowed us to strategically align our company with the very best partners in the industry including the B.A.A. and the Boston Marathon®, the WTC or IRONMAN® Corporation and the TCS New York City Marathon® to name a few.
Blue Diamond Athletic Displays, INC. offers a wide array of Medal Hangers, or as we like to refer to them, as Medal Displays, to meet all your personal showcasing needs.
Series Displays which are our Signature Top Selling 2nd Generation #4 Finish Stainless Steel Displays. These are our #1 Selling product line and our very first product line offering. Our own personal Medal Display is what started it all back in the fall of 2010.
3rd Generation Stainless Steel Displays, a scaled down sweetheart version, building on the success of our signature line SSMS2 Displays, and at the request of our customers and the BAA for the Boston Marathon 2014.
When we first presented our Displays to the BAA for the Boston Marathon, they commented that they loved them but wanted more of them.
Nell and I have long debated whether we wanted to enter into lower price point markets. We were in agreement that if we did, the Displays would have to be: either distinctively Blue Diamond look, feel and superior quality OR they would have to be something unlike anything on the market. We are confident we filled both criteria and our new family of SSMS3 Displays have been released for Boston Marathon 2015. See the various flavors on our products or Boston Marathon page.
Small in stature but bold in quality, we are exited about the SSMS3 family product line as we have entered into an entirely new market.
Series Displays which are 1st Generation Powder Coated ASTM A 1008 Carbon Steel Displays offered in Multiple Colors which feature our unique, one of a kind, Athlete Tabs.
Once again, an original in the Industry and entirely unique, our Wine Bottle Series Medal Displays were originally co-developed for the Santa Rosa Marathon. We worked with the owner Orhan Sarabi in developing a truly unique Medal Display for his World Class Event. If you are a runner and wine enthusiast, one of our “WBS” or Wine Bottle Series Medal Display is a must have item. We are proud of the development that went into this product as it showcased our ability to take any concept, work with event staff, and turn concept, to art, to model, to drawing and into a World Class Product.
Our latest and greatest Medal Display was developed for the Boston Marathon®. While many of our competitors like to make slight modifications to existing designs in the marketplace, our connection to endurance athletes, our customers and partners allows us to identify needs in the market and seek to fill those needs. This Medal Display combines the best of our Medal Display division paired up with our Medal Engraving division. The BMFRM1 is beautifully crafted, three sided, one piece constructed, Stainless Steel Display that has offset pockets for 260 Brass Alloy Engraved Plates. There is nothing else like it on the market. It took all of about 5 seconds to get the thumbs up from the B.A.A. to start production on this beautiful Medal Display showpiece. We will be expanding this product line in 2018 and offering many different design with the same basic concept.
Our REE-liptangle shaped Displays are the largest in the Industry and the only Displays that utilize Mixed Media. It is no wonder that they are also quickly becoming widely known as the Best Displays on the market.
Our customers, who become part of the Blue Diamond extended family, and who have trained for 1000’s of hours to achieve their athletic accomplishments deserve the Best.
