Cheap Button Badges ahoy


Well July is the month of cheap button badges over at Koolbadges. We have various promotions running across out entire range of badges, from the 65p sale that is currently on now to an upcoming giveaway for hitting 10,000 followers on Twitter.

 

People always ask us for cheap badges. It’s hard for us to do often as we are still a family run badge company, hand making all of your orders. Whenever we run a sale it’s manic and it takes us many extra days to process your orders. The last thing we would want is for people to spend ages waiting on their badges.

 

What’s more quality badges can’t always be cheap. Many people online nowadays offer cheap badges, but their customer service & quality of the final product often reflect this price tag. We are committed to producing the highest quality badges at a great price. We always use local, professional print companies to print out all of our designs, this costs much more than printing them in house but guarantees an excellent print quality. It also keeps other local businesses busy. We buy all of our badge components and presses right here in the UK which costs more than buying them in cheap from China, but its ethical & fits in perfectly with our ethos. In fact we buy everything from web hosting to jiffy bags from independent UK businesses.

 

We ship our badges all over the world & if you spend over £15 you can opt for free delivery. It still costs to post them out but we pay for it ourselves. Many people opt for this, including a lot of our foreign customers. With the increase in Royal Mail pricing we often have to spend over £4 to send items to far flung places around the world.

 

We also pride ourselves on customer service. If you have ever emailed us you will know we try to respond to all emails within 10 minutes when we are awake. We do this from the moment we wake up in the morning to the moment we go to sleep at night. We always have a smart phone or tablet to hand so we can answer your questions & queries right away. We love what we do & we love all of our customers. Without you we couldn’t make our awesome badges. We hope you continue to support hand made businesses & remember that we try to charge a fair price which makes it fair for you & us. It’s hard for us to compete with companies who setup on eBay and produce low quality, inferior badges. It’s hard for us to compete with companies who have automated their whole process or have their badges made cheaply in China, but we try everyday to be the most fun & hopefully one of the nicest companies you deal with. We love you all & we hope you recommend our small slice of the internet to all of your friends & family.

 

Now please do enjoy the 65p sale, make the most of some awesome cheap badges & if you feel like it send our link to your friends & family or share it on your social networks, that would mean the world to us.

Tennis Badges & festival badges


It’s that time of year again, the sun is blazing and the world has gone tennis crazy. Wimbledon is underway in London and the eyes of the world are flitting between London & Brazil for the World Cup. We always get into the Tennis craze at this time of the year and given that Vicki is Scottish & I’m English we have plenty of fun debating if Andy Murray is British or Scottish :)

 

We sell loads of tennis badges at this time of year. They are great if you are having a Wimbledon party. They are also used lots by schools as Tennis takes over in PE during the warmer months. They are only 85p each so make great little gifts or party favours. Who can resist some cheap pin badges.

 

Also at this time of year we are bombarded with festival goers wanting badges to complete their outfit. Be it Glastonbury, T in the park, Download or one of the hundreds of other summer festivals, badges are a cheap way of accessorizing and finishing off your festival outfit. We have over 6000 button badge designs to choose from and they are currently only 85p each so surely something for everyone.

 

Anyway the sun is calling, Wimbledon is on the radio and the sun loungers are waiting so it’s time to head home early and relax with a chilled glass of Pimms :)

 

Tennis Button Badges

We have a great selection of tennis badges for sale on our website. Currently only 85p each & perfect for Wimbledon.



World Cup 2014 Badges – The 2014 Fifa World Cup


It seems that the whole world has gone world cup 2014 football crazy. The world cup officially started yesterday and with so many countries involved in the tournament in Brazil it would seem we are involved in this spectacle. It’s been 4 years since the last one & it’s also been 4 years since our first 25% World Cup discount. We decided to run the same discount for this world cup. Use the code WORLDCUP2014 to get 25% off your button badge order. You need to spend more than £7 and it doesn’t apply to custom badges, but it gives you a great discount off any button badge order.

 

We have a great selection of World Cup badges, we stock most country flag badges but if you have a specific country flag badge you need & don’t see on the website drop us a tweet or email and we will get it listed for you. We also have loads of England support badges from St Georges Cross badges to 3 lions badges.

 

The discount applies to all orders, not just World Cup badges but we hope you pick some up while visiting the website. if you would excuse us it’s Friday evening, time to grab a cold drink & head into the garden with the radio for a wind down & perhaps to listed to some football as the sun goes down.

This month in button badges May 2014


It’s been a busy month for us over here at koolbadges. We are in the process of finding new premises so we are working from a temporary workshop. It is much smaller than we are used to but we are making it work and actually finding that we are even more productive than usual.

 

We have also been talking with our web designer about re-branding the whole business. We have used this design and branding for a few years now and it’s probably time to freshen it up. This will mean a change to the website as well. Do you guys have any suggestions on what we should change and what we should keep?

 

This month has also seen us run various badge giveaways on the website. In the past month we have given away more than £200 worth of badges and vouchers. If you aren’t already following us on our social media accounts, give us a follow so you can take part. I’ll put the links to all of our accounts at the end of this post.

 

It must be wedding season as we have been inundated with wedding badge orders and hen do badge orders. We love making them and some of your nicknames for each other are hilarious. This month has also seen us making tons of custom badges. Again your designs get better and better guys. Keep them coming. If you didn’t already know you can use our design your own badge page and upload any image or design you like to be turned into badges. They start at £1 each but get as cheap as 40p each the more you buy.

 

We have lots of new designs to add to the shop so they will be coming soon.

 

You guys also wanted to know more about us a company. I’ve got a massive post about us to go live soon, it’s a work in progress but many people don’t believe the company is run by only two people. Vicki & me (John) do everything at koolbadges, from answering emails & coming up with designs, to making and posting out your orders by hand. This allows us to have a real connection with our badges and we know each and every customer and their order. We work hard to do our very best for you guys and appreciate each and every order you place. It really does make a difference to a small craft business like ours.

 

Also people forget that we hand make all of our badges right here in the UK. Many companies selling online outsource their work to cheaper countries or automate their process. We do it the old fashioned way with hand cutters and hand badge machines. It’s a lot of work but we love it and wouldn’t have it any other way.

 

Anyway I’ll save the details for the next post. Tell your friends about us and spread the hand made love. We live and breathe button badges and hope you continue to love what we do and buy our badges.

 

Thanks guys & girls
John & Vicki

Easter badges & Easter discount code


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.
