My Bio

I started Kool Badges with My husband John back in 2006. I was working for a very large bank as a PA to 12 Financial Advisors & John was finishing his Degree. In the summer of 2005 we visited San Francisco & fell in love with the whole craft scene. At a craft fair there was a badge maker making badges from old magazines & newspapers right on her stall & we decided that's what we wanted to bring to the UK.

We started off small with orders on Etsy & eBay and built our first web site. We kept it ticking over for two years like this before we decided to go full time. We both quit our Manchester jobs (My PA Job & John as a senior web developer) to pursue our business full time. We have doubled our sales year on year and offer our services to customers around the world.

We live, eat & breathe badges and love making up orders for our thousands of customers.
