3 reasons badges make the perfect promo tool!

Tagged with:

Even after 13 years of creating merch and now producing over 500 products made in-house, the badge is still one of our most popular products and will always hold a place in our hearts. With low production costs and people’s love of pinning them proudly, they make a truly awesome product for all sorts of promo.

 

But we don’t expect you to just take our sentimental word for it, discover why our Awesome customers love a good badge, how they use them and why they make the perfect promotional tool.

They’re low cost 

With a minimum order of just 10 on our badges (excluding enamel pins) and low unit costs, you can afford to give badges out as freebies at events, placed in your orders or given out to potential clients.

“Badges are really well priced” explain Carley and Sean of Northern Craft. “We’ve given badges away at fairs and have also given them to stallholders to signify that they are the people who are running that particular stall. We have usually ordered around 100 stall holder badges and up to 500 of the freebies.”

They’re easily customisable

They may be small but they are mighty. Get the design right and your badge creates a bold statement which people will want to pin proudly on their lapels. With so many sizes, shapes, and effects to choose from, you can make a badge that truly reflects who you are.

“You can customise them as much as you like, and for such a small item there are so many options with how you can use colours, illustrations, and words to make them align with your brand or ideas.” Says Illustrator Anastasia Tasou, adding “I’ve never ever met someone who doesn’t love a badge!”

“We recently ordered some badge packs for the first time for International Women’s Day.” Emma Cook from Leeds Arts Student Union explains.

“Each badge was designed by a student and were promoted to raise money for a local women’s charity alongside a student exhibition. These went down really well! And they’re really inexpensive for the quality too. We’ve got our eye on the enamel pin badges for next time – these would definitely go down a treat!”

They’re popular!

If there’s a pot of badges on the table, people are going to grab a handful and pop them on, sharing your designs or logo with everyone they come into contact with. Trust us, we’re always having to top up our showroom supply!

“People seem to really love badges, it’s something that stands out if done right, easy to just pin on right away and they aren’t easily removed.” Explain Carley and Sean.

“Particularly for students, badges are always a cool added extra at a really low cost to the Union,”adds Emma. “ We tend to do a combo of stickers and badges, our lot like to slap a sticker on their mac or where multiple badges pinned onto their clothes. It’s just a really simple way for the Union to promote itself easily.”
