How they
are made

Every badge is created and individually handcrafted just for you; nothing is mass produced.  I use my own original designs and the finest polymer clay.  

I roll, cut shapes and each badge is created by me by hand, even the lettering of names is crafted by hand in polymer clay. You may even spot the odd fingerprint!

Badges are baked, a high quality fastening is added, badges are varnished, packed and dispatched to my customers all over the world. 

I love making people smile one badge at a time.


About Karyn

My home studio business is on a 11 acre lifestyle block in the beautiful green hills of Whitemans Valley in Wellington, New Zealand. I live with my husband Steve, our dog Fern, 5 cattle, 9 sheep and two Kunekune pigs; Sweat Pea & Freeman.

My passion for craft has always inspired me to create things that are handmade. I began selling my polymer clay creations in the 1980’s after lessons from master polymer clay crafter Val Lewis.

I thank my past, present and future customers for supporting my small business. 


How it all began

I’ve been designing and creating beautiful custom badges for my customers for over 25 years! I send badges all over the world and love hearing they make people happy and smile.

I enjoy managing all aspects of my small business from marketing and communications, strategy to execution, including my digital and social media channels.

  • 5 star review  I had my rainbow name badge for 16 years and unfortunately was unaware I dropped it on the road, although it was no match for a car it was still in the same bright colourful condition as when I first got it. I have just placed an order for another one exactly the same. Being an early childhood teacher it is such a great conversation starter with children. Whether discussing the colours or finding objects the same colours or discussing the science behind rainbows it was perfect for all ages. Looking forward to my new one arriving 😊

  • 5 star review  Karyn makes the cutest name badges. I always get told how gorgeous my nursing badge is. Lots of other health care professionals have ordered theirs as well. I want a different one for everyday of the week 🙂

  • 5 star review  I’ve been a nurse for going on 5 years and every day I wear one of the badges that I’ve purchased from Karyn over the last almost 5 years. The quality is incredible, they are unique and personalised and I always get so many comments complimenting my badge or asking where I have gotten them from, and I always say ‘Just For You Name Badges’. The badges have been a ice breaker, and I’ve had paediatric patients love the little faces and animals on the badges. I wouldn’t buy a badge from anywhere else!

  • 4 star review  Great badges. Have been ordering them for myself ( have a cute growing collection) and co-workers. Everyone loves them. Karyn has kindly made new designs on request ( Orca/ witch) and will customise with different colors. Definitely recommend these.
    The only downside is the time it takes for these to arrive, given she is inundated with orders understandable. However twice my badges went to the wrong address or the order was missing a badge … otherwise for badge quality and variety she deserves 7 stars! Thank you, Karyn.

  • 5 star review  Great product from a fantastic creator! the quality of the product is phenomenal and my badge has such a personal touch to it! These badges are in high demand, and so my badge took 3 months from ordering for it to be created and delivered. I totally believe the quality is worth the wait though. It’s such a cute addition to my nursing scrubs and allows me to personalize my look. My patients, other nurses and medical staff, and even strangers have complimented my badge. I highly recommend Karyn from Just For You Name Badges if you’re looking for a personalized badge with so many options to choose from!

  • 5 star review  I love the badge that I ordered! Super easy to order on her website, clear communication from her regarding the making of my badge, shipping and tracking the parcel. Overall really happy with how smoothly and fast everything went. Can’t wait to wear this when I start my new job in a couple of weeks! Highly recommend!

  • 5 star review  I don’t normally write reviews but these badges are second to none. I highly recommend them. There are lots of my colleagues now wear them. They are a great alternative to the boring badges we get at work lol. The badges are beautifully made and long lasting. There are so many to choose from. Karyn keeps in touch with updates and postage is quick and reliable. You won’t regret any purchase you make. Thanks for your great work Karyn. I now have a couple to give to friends for Christmas!
