How can i find an automotive/motorcycle badge maker?

talking about the plastic badges that car makers stick on the cars, usually with a chrome finish on the plastic
i want to make my own badge design
if the raised version is cost-prohibitive i guess i could settle for a sticker but i donít think thatíll be as cool

I've never seen anything that intricate.
A 3D printer will help but the multi colors and detail will be difficult to copy.

There are many companies that do similar but I think you will find the cost prohibitive. Things like that are often made for trade show give-aways or other corporate "toys", usually made by the hundreds or thousands. You can also fabricate it out of metals, possibly not even needing painting. The other option is like PJmax mentioned. 3D print what you want and paint it. Real chrome can be done but I think you will find it too expensive for just a part or two.
