It’s a teacher’s worst nightmare; herding a flock of eager, hyper-active schoolchildren on to a bus for an excursion. Containment on the school grounds themselves can be a task worthy of a four-star General, but out there, beyond the fence-line, it’s enough to give a teacher cold sweats!
So how can you make it easier to keep track of each child under your supervision? You could tag each child with fluorescent paint or chain them together, but I’m sure either one of those contravenes the Geneva Convention at some point. Any school worth its salt will have their children adorned in a proper, smart uniform. This is obviously the first stage of identifying which child belongs to which school. Here at Make badges.com.au we get asked if we can add a little more, so we highly recommend a large badge or a zipper pull.
Our custom 25mm zipper pulls are sturdy and stylish and can easily be clipped on to a child’s jacket, jumper or bag. A bold school logo with accompanying contact telephone number can ease the pain if a child becomes separated from the pack or they lose or misplace an expensive article of clothing or bag.
Both the badges and zipper pulls can be handed out and collected before and after the excursion but we find many of our schools on-sell them to parents who worry about the aforementioned losses on a daily basis. Our custom badges range in size from 25mm to a bumper size 75mm and are an added layer of security when it comes to tracking those precious (and forgetful!) children.

Let’s face it; at some point in our lives we’ve all collected something. For most of us it’s a hobby, a passing fad that we outgrow in time, but other people take their collecting seriously. Very seriously. For some a hobby becomes a collection which swiftly becomes an obsession. Some people collect to connect to [...]

Pin badges were a staple part of most of our childhoods. We collected them in their many guises, covering topics as diverse as movies to food branding.

June 30th is just around the corner and we both know that means the end of the financial year. I've come to notice a pattern over the years that suggests customers who work at companies, in departments with yearly budgets like to ensure they spend as much of that budget as possible, so not to [...]
