A Simple and Effective Way of Rewarding Your Child’s Team for a Job Well Done! January 27 2017

Psychologists teach us that the best way to make a behaviour permanent is to encourage it through reinforcement. Reinforcement could be anything from a simple appreciation like ‘thank you so much’ to a big gift. This especially works with children. In order to teach them certain habits, you need to reinforce them and the best way to do this is by rewarding them.

Now here is one thing that you need to note about rewards - they do not have to be big. After all, it is the smaller things in life that really matter. If you are working with a group of children and you would like to reward the best performers or generally the whole class, there are number of things that you can do for them. One such thing is presenting them with badges. A badge can make a child compete tirelessly to achieve big goals.

It is very convenient that you are able to get a custom designed badge online through online shops like Capital Badges. This is one of the best places you can shop for premium-quality badges and lapel badges. You will not have to spend a fortune getting these badges for your team.

Give a child a badge after a given period of time - say a month’s work on some activity - and they will seek to improve themselves with each single month that goes by. It is up to you to come up with a schedule for rewarding the children for their work. Have a look at Capital Badges' Website and you will find some brilliant reward options that will work for children such as embroidered badges and so much more.

The Importance of Badges in Schools and the Workplace January 27 2017

Do you want to motivate your students, employees or even to help people to recognise staff at your workplace? Then why not consider using quality badges?  Although badges such as maths badges seem minor, they play a very important role especially among the young ones. Children for instance will appreciate badges when given as recognition for their effort or hard work. It is for this reason that you should have quality badges for your school and use them to recognise the effort of your students.

Easy staff identification

When visitors come to your business premise, how do they identify your staff? One of the best ways of ensuring that people recognise your staff with ease is ensuring that they wear badges. This is very important because clients and customers will know who serves them without having to ask their names. Additionally, when you have many clients or customers in your business premise, it is easier for customers and clients to know who to seek assistance from when your staff have badges. For instance, security badges enable staff members to determine whether new people in the premises have passed the security screening or testing at the gate. Thus, they enhance security in your place of work.

The Importance of School Badges January 09 2014

Generally, badges are used to identify a person. The badge that a person is wearing will show that they belong in the atmosphere that they are at. When other people see that someone is wearing a badge, they are immediately comforted knowing that the person has permission to be there. School badges are very beneficial to educational institutes. It does not matter if the school is an elementary school or a college.


It is always important for school management to know who is on their property. If everyone is issued a school badge, they will know if a person belongs on the school property or not. Students, teachers and staff members will easily be identified. If a person is seen on the grounds without a badge, it will be a good reason to investigate who they are and what business they have. Trespassers who do not belong can be dangerous, especially in elementary schools. It is a sad fact of life, but kidnappings, theft, vandalism and other violent acts can occur when an outsider is on the school premises.

A school policy must be implemented to all students, teachers and staff that their school badge must be worn at all times. Standard policy should be to issue school badges during registration. This applies to students, teachers and staff members. It must also be understood by everybody that their badge must be surrendered upon completion of their duties. For students, this would mean that they must surrender their badge when they are no longer a student. For teachers and staff members, this would mean surrendering their badge when they are no longer employed at the facility.Badges also serve a needy cause when they are used for admission of an event. There may be certain students that have permission to attend a certain event and with their badges they will easily be able to identify themselves. Other good reasons that badges may come useful may include getting meal tickets and the borrowing of books or school equipment. School management will need to know that someone belongs before they go on ahead and let them borrow a LCD projectorCNB imageWhen schools need school badges, they usually turn to us for their needs.
