Packaging Refresh

If you’ve sharp eyes you’ll have noticed the refreshed packaging with our fabric badges. In the past when I sold at markets, I used a simple white card backing so I could pin the label to a cork board display. It was the best I could do at short-notice but it never quite hit the right note with me.

Over the last few months I’ve been in the cycle of designing, prototyping, and tweaking things, trying to work out the most beautiful way to display badges. Finally, I settled on the stunning luxury hessian and kraft card and dammit does it look fabulous.

Express and Design Service

At the Spike Badges HQ, we’re excited to announce two new services just for you.

The first is our Express Service which means now if you need your custom badges lickety-split, your order will get priority in the queue. You’ll be number one! You can pick this option on the drop-down menu for each custom badge listing. Sweet, eh? 

The second is our new design service. We’ve have lots of experience making badges, thousands of badges in fact. When we get designs for custom badges, we normally advise our clients of any little changes to make their design pop. Sometimes, we come across designs that need just a little bit more tweaking than normal. This service is for when designs take an extra bit of time to get perfect

US Presidential Election 2012

Here at Spike Badges, as a single humble badge-maker I have an appreciation for politics. The American Presidential Election is political equivalent to the Olympics. Rolling around every four years or so, the run-up is tense filled with mudslinging and catcalls. Let’s face it, it’s the beauty pageant of American politics for one of the most powerful positions in the world. Just gotta walk, talk and keep your nose clean.

So to celebrate the run-up to the American Election, we’ve made four new badges: Vote Zombie; Vote Mittens; Spoiled Vote and Four More Beers. These badges are available individually or as a special pack of four for just €2.50.

International Talk Like A Pirate Day is coming up on the 19th of September. You can nab all of our pirate badges in a special pack for only

Between Barak Obama and Mitt Romney, may the best man win.
