The humble badge, or pin-back button as it’s known as in America, is a timeless invention that has been around since the late 19th century.
They are frequently used to deliver political messaging, advertise a product or service, or just act as as a fun, artsy adornment for the clothes or bag. They were particularly popular for activist slogans in protest movements in the second half of the 20th century.
Here at Owlish Arts, I have a huge variety of designs to choose from – political, pop culture, memes – just some great stuff to add to a school backpack or a messenger bag.
At present, I have the equipment to make 2 sizes, 25mm and 44mm. 25mm is a similar size to the enamel pins I sell – not too “loud” but large enough that you can see what the message or image is. The 44mm is a decent amount larger, allowing people to see what the badge is all about from a bit of a distance. This is a great size for political messaging or showing off.
