We love Easter here at koolbadges. We get to make some of the cutest badges during this time. Bunnies and chicks and chocolate eggs, oh my!
Each year we offer a discount code for Easter and this year is no exception. We find that a lot of kids browse the site during Easter and get their parents to order them some badges so if your kids are wanting badges use the code KBEASTER2014
Of course if you are like us (big kids) you can also use the code for yourself. It can be used for 15% off all orders but does exclude custom badges as these are already discounted.
Our badges are already in a 25% sale so this 15% off is in top of that. How Kool!
Below is just a small selection of our Easter badges. We have a great range and we would love it if you guys checked them out.
Happy easter everyone. Enjoy the holidays, go easy on the chocolate and enjoy the start of the sunny weather.

50p Button Badge Sale
It’s one of those rare occasions where we reduce the majority of our button badges to 50p each. That’s 50% off over 5000 badge designs on our website. These sales are limited in numbers as all of our badges are hand made & the sales make us very busy indeed.
For the rest of today (Saturday 29th March) we will be running a 50p badge sale. It must end at Midnight GMT so please do stock up on Button badges and save 50% off our normal selling price.
Grab some bargain button badges. The sale applies to all badges except for custom badges & badge packs. There is no code to use for this one, the price reduction is site wide & available to everyone.

Most people forget that we sell Badges for all of the major celebrations. Easter & Mothers Day are no exception. We have a fairly large range of both badges and they are great for kids school uniforms or as a little funny treat when you take your mum out on Mothers day.
Easter Sale 2014
Why not checkout our range. We even have a 15% off code running this year (although this can be used for any order, not just Easter & mothers day badges, but it doesn’t work with custom badges). Just enter the code KBEASTER2014 during checkout to claim your extra 15% off.
It’s also a really busy time for us in the workshop. We are in the process of finding a new workshop space & we need to find something a little cheaper. Maybe it will mean a move out to the countryside to work from a farmers barn or workshop. We are keeping an eye out & have a temporary setup in the meantime.
In the meantime we have thousands of badges to choose from & you can get a nice discount using the 15% off code mentioned above.

It’s been another crazy busy week over here at koolbadges. We have Ben making absolutely loads of Easter badges and St Patrick’s day badges, thanks in part to the 15% off code we have been running. If you didn’t already know or aren’t on our mailing list we are offering and star 15% off orders with code STPAT2014 – enter the code during checkout for your discount.
We have been making tons of other badges too. We must really be getting into wedding season as the amount of hen, stag and wedding badges we are making are ridiculous. We spent 2 whole days last week only making hen party and wedding badges. They always make us smile.
We have been making loads of custom badges as well is week. Some amazing designs have been ordered and we find it really refreshing to see what you guys come up with.
The koolbadges workshop premises is also on the market as we will be relocating soon. We have no idea where to yet but we are on the move again. So far in the past 6 years we have been located in Manchester, St. Helens, Dundee and Cornwall. We will keep you updated but our work won’t slow down, we have temporary headquarters in the meantime until everything is finalised so it’s business as usual.
We are heading to Manchester this weekend for some crafty inspiration and to speak with some of our wholesale customers. We love getting feedback on what their customers like and which badges they would like to see more of. Do you guys have any weekend plans?
Finally if you don’t already, give us a follow on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or join our mailing list.

It’s been a busy week over here at koolbadges, and we are only on Tuesday. Early this week we started our St Patrick’s day promotion and an email went out to all of our newsletter subscribers. You can get an extra 15% off your order by using the code STPAT2014 during checkout. This applies to all badges with the exception of custom badges.
We also finished off sending a ton of Valentines day badges out. Some people left it right until the last minute but many people where whisking their valentines away so they still had time to receive their love badges.
Alongside all of that we have been making a ton of custom badge orders and wholesale badges. We supply our badges to a whole host of shops all around the world. If you are interested in stocking our badges do get in touch and we can give you a bulk discount. They sell really well when put in a jar on your counter or checkout. Urban outfitters stocked our badges this time last year and we felt a great deal of pride visiting the London and Manchester stores and seeing all of our hard work.
It’s been crazy long days so far this week and we reckon it will be like that for the next week or so while we get up to date on orders. We also have a trip to Scotland scheduled soon and a change of premises for our workshop. More details about that soon.
Until then I’ll leave you with some pictures of our recent orders.
