Production of top quality

enamel Pin Badges, lapel badges, trolley coins;

embroidered patches;

and other promotional merchandise since 2003.

Much of our new business now comes from recommendation from existing repeat business customers.

Our customer base - includes sports clubs, charities and businesses seeking promotional goods. We can deal with small or large orders and all we require to get started is some basic artwork. There is no fixed price given the number of sizes and variations in designs but you will find our prices to be very competitive.

Minimum order - there is no minimum order for any of our clothing or for digitizing embroidery. Pin badges and embroidered patches require a minimum quantity of 50 items. We cannot publish a price list because items are individually priced being dependent on so many factors such as size, material, number of colours and design of the product required.

When we provide a quote there is no pressure or hard sell, you advise us of your requirements and in return we will provide a quote which we are sure you will find very competitive, so please co contact us today.

Mission Statement - Simply the supply of quality items at a competitive price, with a low or no minimum order quantity and in a timely manner. We offer free art work design, order tracking and a guaranteed delivery time. Average production time is around 3-4 weeks.

Quotes - All we require is a photo or drawing of your design from which we can produce artwork for your approval.  When we provide a quote there is no pressure or hard sell, you advise us of your requirements and in return we will provide a quote which we are sure you will find very competitive, so please co contact us today.

Methods of Production - There are a number of ways to produce pin badges, but some generally lead to a poor reproduction from a saving of only a few pence per badge. For example below is one of our own pin badges on the right produced using Epola Imitation Cloisonné alongside a cheap Soft Enamel copy found on an auction site.

The difference is clear. Consequently we favour the following options in order to provide you a quality product :-

Cloisonné-Hard Enamel -   this is an ancient art developed over a thousand years ago in China. The design is stamped into metal in a mold and then plated to your chosen finish. Recessed areas are filled with a hard-fired cloisonné paste and hand-polished leaving a glass-like finish. Cloisonné is the option for those who require the best quality finish. It requires no epoxy coating and can be plated in a variety of colours, most popular being a gold or nickel colouring, the latter being a superior substitute for silver that is generally poor if subjected to wear and tear.

Epola (Imitation Cloisonné) -   This is a similar process to cloisonné but using brilliant coloured resin (rather than a cloisonné paste) in the filled areas. Badges are then baked to harden before being highly polished. This process highlights fine details beautifully and still gives that gives that glass-like finish with detailed lettering or image or a recessed finish. In addition to highlight any very small text or particularly fine detail a silk screen printing overlay (see below) can also be added.

Recessed finish

Silkscreen Print overlay -   Look at these 2 badges the pin with significantly more detail has the overlay. The fine detail can be printed on colour filled or plated pieces overlayed onto the badge. It gives the advantage of including a small logo for example or lettering clearly and in different colour.

Cheap Richard The Lionheart Pin Badge  Badge with silk screen overlayIt is the blue detail on the lions on the badge (15mm high) on the right which has been added using a silk screen print overlay. Epola is very a viable alternative to cloisonné at a more affordable price and is often our primary recommendation.  It does not require an epoxy coating, is economical in price and can be plated as Cloisonne and colouring is to Pantone, meaning you can replicate your business colours precisely.

Die Struck Enamel -  An alternative to cloisonné or epola, often used for 3D designs. Enamel is hand filled into recessed areas and baked to harden using pantone colours, option of an epoxy resin and plating as with other badges. The Wales v Brazil badge is die struck, it has a stand out appearance but the Brazil v England imitation cloisonné badge has a cleaner smoother finish.

Embroidered Patches - designed for you whether it be corporate for charity or sporting clubs and organisations.

Embroidery is created by digitising a photo piece of artwork. The digitisation process simply converts your image into another image made up of stitches, so making it suitable for producing an embroidered patch.
Minimum order is just 30 patches;
Patches can contain up to 9 colours;
Patch backing can be sew on, iron on, velcro or plastic;
Thread can be ordinary or metallic; and  
Edge can have a merrowed (whipped) or laser cut edge (see the examples below).
