- About Us -
Utah-native, Mike Leatham set out in 1986 to establish a company that could provide both creative design and high quality LDS products in the custom ring market. In 1987 Mike took on a partner, and it wasn’t long before we began producing other types of jewelry and collectible items with the primary focus being the LDS religious retail market.
In 1994, we recognized the opportunity to expand into new and different markets by applying our creative design and jewelry quality manufacturing standards to public safety badges. We began our entrance into the public safety market by making a few badges for a small number of departments to commemorate the Utah State Centennial.
In 1997 we changed our name from RingMasters to SymbolArts. This was a reflection of the growth that had taken place in so many new and different markets. In 1999, an opportunity came to divide the company and the partners made the decision to part ways. Mike retained the SymbolArts name as well as LDS Church distribution accounts, the public safety market, and corporate accounts. His partner returned to the RingMasters name and the LDS retail market.
We offer a number of different insignia products including badges, patches, belt buckles, rings, pins/tie-tacs, key chains, awards, plaques, nameplates, coins, medallions, corporate and religious jewelry/items, and accessories. We not only work with all types of public safety departments, but also with corporations, small businesses, religious groups, and various organizations to help meet their commemorative, promotional, advertising/marketing, and special event needs.
Some of the events SymbolArts has helped commemorate are: the Utah State Centennial, Utah State Pioneer Sesquicentennial, Wisconsin State Sesquicentennial, California State Sesquicentennial, Ohio State Bicentennial, The New Millennium nationwide, September 11 Fallen Heroes, and the Salt Lake 2002 Olympic Winter Games.
After 12 long years, we are returning to our roots - the LDS retail market. Symbols of Zion is the new LDS retail division of SymbolArts. Our tagline is “LDS Products for Eternal Purposes” and we take this very seriously. We’re parents, teachers and leaders in the Church just like you. We offer LDS centered products that serve as daily reminders of the things we hold dear; namely Church and Family. Since 1986, we’ve built our reputation on producing high quality jewelry products at affordable prices. Symbols of Zion products are produced with gospel purposes in mind.
