Our Journey

Our founder Martin left Art College in 1976 where he started working as a commercial artist in Central London until moving to Yorkshire in the late 1980’s. It’s here where he started his business as a sole trader and in that same year was requested by a good friend to design and supply fundraising pin badges for the then Great Ormond Street Hospital Appeal. The rest as they say is history.
Today with his daughter and staff of some 95 years combined experience, ML Badges & More is able to supply specialist design and manufacture of enamel, PVC and cloth items to a vast, diverse and demanding worldwide customer base. Using traditional hand drawn methods alongside the latest computer aided design software, you can always rely on ML Badges to get it right.
