At Make Badges, we believe that everyone should be able to display self-expression in social movements That's why providing a button badge as a form of protest is an important commitment to us.
Now you can show your support and make your voice known with one of our protest badges. They can be customised with any design, phrases or images you want in a presentable badge that can be attached to any part of your clothes or backpack. Show your support for a cause on the street, at public gatherings, on public transport, at work and everywhere you go.
Union marches, protest marches, social rallies and charitable causes are just a few examples of movements that have brought people together en masse over the last couple of centuries.
Badges have been used as a symbol of self-expression in social movements and causes related to voting, unionisation, anti-war, and more. They have helped countless people to express their views at these events and while out in the public eye.
In effect, badges are a personal sign that people can wear to empower them in displaying beliefs, allegiances and preferences that would otherwise remain unknown.
They are a highly effective way to make a direct impression, especially in densely populated areas and at events such as rallies, public transportation, outdoor festivals or urban areas.
