This is our second year working closely with our friends over at the Fresh Film Festival.
The Fresh Film Festival was founded almost twenty years ago as part of the Limerick Film Festival. Over the years, its has grown into a competition to for young people and teenagers to develop intrepid young filmmakers all across Ireland.
The Regional Heats are kicking off in Galway, Limerick, Cork and Dublin over the next couple of weeks.
Last year the folks over at MKAI got in touch looking for badges for Electric Picnic. They did such an amazing job, they were invited to come back again this year and asked us to whip up a pile of badges for them. You’ll find MKAI rocking out at the Oxjam tent on Friday at 8pm.
Best of luck to our friends over at The Statics, who’ll be playing the Oxjam tent on Sunday at 10pm.
We love upcycling and recycling so our release for this week is our snazzy Upcycled Security Pattern INSERT LINK badges and magnets.

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.Continue reading
