Lisa from BadgeFreaks

Our story…

BadgeFreaks is a specialist embroidered badge shop, and we just love badges!

Hi, my name is Lisa and I’m a Guide and Ranger leader. I had often wanted to reward the girls with a special badge for a particular trip or event but having custom cloth badges made was always too expensive and required a large minimum order.

With a degree in Graphic Design I thought why not create my own badges. After a while I was receiving more and more requests from other leaders and so in Feb 2008 BadgeFreaks was born!

Together with my husband Mike we enjoy running this specialist site providing stock badges for Guiding and Scout Leaders. It started out with customisable pin badges but has now grown to include ready made embroidered badges and fun camping t-shirts to match, with an ever expanding catalogue of designs.

Cleverly disguised as adults

It’s not all about event badges. We love to add new humorous badges as often as possible as you have to have a sense of humour working with youth groups, and we’re all kids at heart. That’s why our favorite fun badge is the Cleverly Disguised as a Responsible Grown Up!

We also love family camping and our daughter loves making Smores on a campfire which inspired our mmm Smores badge, although her favourite is the fundraising cloth badge as it’s got a piggy on it like Peppa Pig!

We’re our own customer!

As leader's ourselves we understand the need for great looking quality badges at the best possible price. Our goal is to provide you with a honest, friendly and helpful service. We are always prepared to go that extra mile for every single customer as we ourselves would like to be treated.

Our badge designs within our catalogue are naturally envisaged from the wants and needs of our customers’ feedback and our own units’ requirements. If we find we have a need for a badge for a specific situation it’s usually the case others need it too. As a result our badges are always being added to so please come back often and sign up to our newsletter to be the first to know of new releases and discounts.

Have ideas?

We love hearing from you, particularly if you’ve some new badge ideas or you’d like to share your camp blanket photos on our facebook page. Or if you’d just like a chat look out for the chat window at the bottom right of the site. When we’re online it will appear and you can talk to us one to one.

To all of you, from us at BadgeFreaks - Thank you and Happy Sewing!


We’re badge freaks, just like you.



"Not only are BadgeFreaks affordable and produce great badges, but the customer service was excellent."
Jon Rees, Glamorgan West Scouts

"Our decision to use BadgeFreaks was spot on. They rushed them through production due to our tight timescales and even went beyond the call of duty by delivering them in person to our camp site. Excellent service all round and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone else. In fact, I have already done that twice."
Julian Morgans, 44th Swansea Scouts

"Fantastic badges, brillant service, quick delivery, I'm always delighted with the service recieved. The badge designs are brillant. They are great value for money."
Julie Forrest, 1st Tinto Brownies
