Happy birthday! Okay, maybe as you get older and jaded (like me) the idea of your birthday doesn’t fill you with the glee it once did. But you do remember that special feeling when it did come around as a child, right? That nervous anticipation the night before, or the hope of that special present you’d subtly dropped hints to your mum for the past several months. Well you probably also remember the feeling of being that special person for a day when you strode into the classroom in the morning.
Here at Make Badges we believe that a child’s birthday should be a cause for celebration at school and we often field enquiries regarding button badges for children in celebration of their special day. Many of our school clients now order bulk lots of custom made badges emblazoned with their particular ‘Happy Birthday!’ exclamation. These custom made badges can be anything from our 25mm badge all the way to our 75mm birthday whopper!
Schools store the badges and make them available to teachers who have birthday students in attendance. The school gets satisfaction from giving a little birthday memento to their pupil and the student enjoys the acknowledgment of the school in making them the focus for the day.
Happy students are good students and we are only too happy to offer advice on design or product selection when it comes to birthday, or any occasion, custom made badges. So if you are looking for a special custom made badge, why not contact us at Make Badges today and we’ll be more than happy to help. Now blow out the candles and make a wish.

One of the most frequent questions we get asked here at Make Badges is where one can find quality images to use for badge designs. There are several factors to consider when answering this question. Firstly, achieving a high quality badge starts with high quality artwork. Our team at Make Badges prides itself on producing [...]
The step up from kindergarten to primary school or ‘big school’ as some children refer to it, can be a very daunting process. Children can go from a single building with maybe one hundred toddlers to a massive campus with endless buildings and hundreds of loud, unruly students, all massive in comparison. Like I said, [...]
The modern education system evaluates children’s academic progress through on-going testing and grade-based knowledge progression. The reward for passing set levels is more often than not merely a grade on a piece of paper. At one end of the learning spectrum, intelligent children will learn, sit their exams and achieve the necessary grades without much enthusiasm. At the other end, [...]

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 [...]
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 [...]
