I have a case with what looks like a spot for a case badge but it's not the usual square - it's pill-shaped, about 40mm by 15mm. Was this ever a standard thing or is my case just weird?
That looks like the same case badge shape Compaq used in the 486-era.
On the subject of re-creating stickers, I've been thinking about printing some "Designed for Windows" stickers on metallic Inkjet-friendly sticker paper at some point, especially the pre-XP ones which have been pretty difficult to find for years now.
I still post here, but only occasionally.

COL stood for Computers On Line, and provided computer repair and tech support.
So it did! HDD maintenance and data retrieve too I'm led to believe:

I miss the old internet 😢
If it's broke, then fix it!

Below is a scan of some of my case badges. I'm not big into case badge collection, but if there is an intention on a case, I must fill it.
Here are some custom badges I made for my cases. These are are only 1-bit so that they print well on my non-colour laser printer.
And here are some custom colour badges I made for some cases. For some reason, the blue colour came out a little funny after uploading the png file.

Here's some of mine that I had in my drawer and not packed in a box:
Sorry for the poor lighting. I'll pull out my full collection someday, it's almost every Intel case badge ever made with a couple of exceptions for ones I can't find. 🤣
