Merit Badge has long been proud to supply badges for education. School badges can help to give children a key sense of place and belonging to a school, as well as provide staff with a useful motivation tool.

Modern school badges

Increasingly we like to personalise badges to your individual needs. The badges that we create are bespoke, and adapted to order. Frequently schools ask us to tailor the final product with their design and logo by using a combination of stock badges with exceptional finishing techniques. These deliver high colour density badges for exceptional image printing.

This range can be used for any purpose such as; house badges, sports badges, club badges, event badges, reward badges or school trip badges.

Staff badges, ID badges and name badges can also be produced with the school logo. This can help to improve the recognition and prestige for a school on events such as parent’s evenings. 

This style can be produced with low minimums and at reasonable cost, but as each badge is bespoke we ask you contact us for a unique quote.  Please email us at


Classic school badges

We can offer the wide range of standard enamel badges that schools traditionally used to have such as the monitor, perfect and head boy badges, and head girl badges. The reward badges for special positions within the school – such as prefect and monitor and librarian. These can come in the classic shield or bar badges.

These are made to order and can take a few weeks. Prices start from around £1.50 per badge and the minimum is around 100pcs. Please contact us on for further details.


Bespoke school badges

We can offer badges made to order in any design. We have an experienced UK team that has years of experience designing the best badges. The badges that we have traditionally made represent a real investment in the prestige of your school. 

These are often enamel school badges with your school crest. These are made of brass with either silver or gold plated finish. They are hand enamelled and hand polished and have brooch pins or lapel pins. In some cases a metal relief can be a more effective choice and these can look very effective.

Minimum order on these styles can be 100pcs or 250pcs depending upon the styles that you need. These are made to order and can take a few weeks. Our team is standing by to help your realise your design. Please contact us on for more information and to get started.


Premium school badges

For those that want to spend a little more on a die struck UK made badge we do offer a premium range of badges. These are more than just badges as they are finished to the highest jewellery standards. While we can use brass and high quality plating, we prefer to make the premium school badges out of sterling silver. These are die stamped and hallmarked at the Birmingham Assay office. These are then hand finished and polished in our UK workshop. We can also offer solid gold badges crafted by our in house goldsmith. These badges are specifically designed in consultation with you and as such there is no minimum order, but there is a higher cost to these unique pieces.

In this same standard we can also offer bespoke cufflinks finished to the highest standards.
