Does one company make all emblems and other parts?

As I progress through my first restoration, I have learned that many body panels come from Dynacorn & Goodmark so now I'm wondering about emblems and other parts. I see various prices from different companies like OPGI, Year One, Ames, Performance years. Do they all come from the same place? Is the quality that much better for one that's $20 more? For example, the "GTO" fender emblem that goes on my '68?
What about parts like the hideaway actuators? All from the same place?

Most body panels and bumpers come from goodmark and/or Dynacorn. Several of the big parts repro suppliers have CERTAIN things tooled for. It has been my experience that OPGI has the highest prices. I generally shop Performance years and Ames....Sometimes a company offers 2 different quality levels of the same part.....a cheaper repro from China, and a better one from USA. Eric

just scoped out parts ( emblems and seat covers ) from 5 different place and Ames was the best price in most cases .. saw the seat covers from PUI and Legendary and will be going with Legendary ....... much nicer quality

AFAIK most, if not all, of the emblems, exterior lenses, and so on are manufactured by Trim Parts. They make really good stuff.

The Parts Place out of chicago makes a TON of stuff and supplies Ames and Opgi with many of their products- 3 Items I bought from Ames with The Parts Place logo are the front headlight bezels, the rear tail light bezels, and the front grills ( all for a 65)
