Where and How to use Badges

Badges are making a comeback – big time. And they’re just as much of a style statement as they were before.


No longer just the collectible fodder of die-hard Avril Lavigne fans from the early noughties, badges are an amazing way to get yourself noticed. Whether you want to advertise your brand, jazz up your clothing or create collectible accessories that can be pinned onto tote bags, caps and guitar cases alike – badges are best.


Want to find out where and how to use badges? Say no more. We’ve stuck a pin in the top four ways to wear custom badges with style.


1 – Customise your clothes


Whether you’ve got a vintage denim jacket, trucker cap or flannel shirt in need of some upcycling, embrace your inner 90s child and jazz your clothes up with some custom badges! Turn heads with bright contrasting colours, strong typography and killer graphics that are sure to catch the eye of any passerby.

2 – Bling your bags up



We’re pretty sure it’s a scientific fact that humans love to accessorise (don’t quote us, just trust us.) And where better than on your bag that you carry around with you 24/7? From totes to backpacks, envision the humble bag as a blank canvas crying out for some custom badge action – somewhere for you to show off your own design skills or free advertising space for your brand to get seen!

3 – Glow up your guitar case



In the music biz and looking for a place to display your badges of honour? Cover your instrument cases and merch table in customised badges to promote your band on the road! 


Using colours, fonts and imagery that stay true to your aesthetic, badges are an easy, cost-efficient and fuss-free form of advertising that can help to build awareness of your music. All it takes is someone to spot the badge on your guitar case, nab one for themselves from your merch table and show it off to some friends – hello new downloads!

4 – Pimp up your product packaging


Want your customers to come back for more again and again and again? It’s time to get creative with your packaging to show them you care. 


So, why not add a thoughtful freebie for a super personal touch by placing a pack of branded badges in with their order? Not only will the added extras make your recipient feel happy and increase the chances of a repeat sale, but it also means more brand awareness for your business. Who knows what rucksacks, baseball caps or tea cosies a badge with your logo on could get pinned to, but who cares – it’s all free promo!
