Big Designs Meets Small Business

If you are a designer or illustrator with a passion to create, we can help bring your designs to life. Whether it is doodling for fun or a life long hobby, we can help kickstart your side business.

As we build relationships with our creative clients, we learn that a side business selling designs can quickly become so much more. It becomes a passion, a creative outlet and in some cases a full time job. If you have thought about turning your illustrations into merchandise for your friends or fans to proudly wear, then our pin badges or patches could be for you.

Here at Made by Cooper we are designers by profession, meaning we appreciate a well designed product and understand your creative needs. With an experienced in house design team, we can produce pretty much anything in metal, PVC or cloth no matter how unique to you.

With our low minimum order quantities, you can start off small when working against a budget and get a feel of what your audience love. Looking at online marketplaces such as Etsy to sell your products is a popular platform amongst makers and creatives. It allows you to grow your side business with little commitment and at your own pace, targeting buyers who love alternative products from small businesses.

There is lots of potential for high profit margins when it comes to custom made products. For example, starting off with a small run of 100 pin badges could leave you with great returns. If you was to order 100 soft enamel pins with up to 4 colours, gold plating and a rubber clutch in 30mm size, your pin badges could be just £1.45 per unit (excluding VAT). Meaning if you was to sell your pin badges at the competitive market average of £6 per badge, you could quickly maximise your profits and expand your designs and product range. Turning your passion into a business and on your way to side business success.

Did you know you can also add extras to your pin badges? We can create anything from spinners, sliders and LED to glitter, glow in the dark and gem stones! Have something else in mind? Let us know and we can create it, adding extras to your pins not only makes them unique and stand out against the competition, it also adds value to your pins making them more exclusive.

If you want to check out some small business that are rocking the pin world right now, you can look out for our 'Creative Hour' edit on the blog. Here we feature our creative clients allowing you to connect, grow and network with like minded people at the comfort of your own home.
