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
