Where it began


There is a ‘pre-story’ to Badge Base which I now come to realise wasfundamental to how and even why, it came to be. At the Commonwealth GamesManchester 2002 during a walk around the Merchandise Store at the City ofManchester Stadium I was captivated by the array of Games Pin Badgesavailable. These small, colourful, intricate and finely shaped metal mementoeson their Official Backing Cards were without doubt where my Passion for Pinsbegan and then grew as I started to trawl the internet to find and add to mycollection, rare and aged Olympic Pin Badges.

Where it started, was during a half term holiday following an event in school theweek before where we’d produced some button badges for a Literacy event anda student had remarked ‘I’d pay money for one of those Miss!” The hook therefor me, beyond my own slight obsession with badges was the acknowledgementof the delight that a small badge could bring to someone. So, with a modestbudget of £135.00 I decided to order a Button Badge machine and some badgecomponents. From the laptop and printer in my son’s bedroom and badgemachine in our spare room, Badge Base was born.
