Just wondering whether any of you arty folk make badges? I would like to buy about 30-40 personalised badges for my sisters hen night but can't find anywhere that makes/sells them. If anybody does, please could you cat me with the details.

My dd has the super badge it (can buy in woolies, argos etc) and you can make any design you want, but they are quite small.
Hope you have a great time.

You could make them on the computer with shrink plastic. What sort of design were you thinking about or was it just names!!!

Wanted an embarrassing pic of her with a bit of writing top and bottom. They need to be good as she is a primary teacher and very arty and all her teacher friends are coming too!

I've not used it on the PC at all but you could scan in pic of her print it out on shrink plastic and pop it in the oven, it shrinks to about 70% (??) and thickens. I don't know about bagde pins though, but I think you can get stick on backings with metal pins from somewhere. I am sure someone else will know.
If you wwant to give it a try, you can get a free sample of computer shrink plastic from the Avery website! Very "crafty" I know, but if a few of the hen crowd do the same from thier PCs youu probably wouldn't ned to buy any!!! It might be worth a try!

I'll keep an eye open in my craft catalogues for the badge pins, just in case!
