Are Clip-On-Ties For Schools The Way Forward?

5 grey and burgundy ties for Schools

Health and safety is becoming tighter in all walks of life.

The latest health and safety clampdown is at school level and is seeing the strong emergence of the clip-on-tie.  Traditional school ties are becoming rare, as headmasters up and down the country in both state and public schools seem to be opting for the safer clipped alternative.

With subjects like design and technology that require pupils to operate machinery in workshops, schools are deeming the traditional school tie to be a safety hazard with fears of these ties getting caught in machines.  Schools are becoming so passionate about the issues that there has been cases in the national media where pupils have been excluded for not following these tie guidelines.

With the growing number of academies up and down the country, they promote a smart, traditional image, with other schools promoting a corporate look that will make pupils more at ease in their working lives later on.  Another growing trend in schools is a return to the ‘house’ system, where school uniform ties now have to be matching with the colour of that house so pupils can be differentiated.

At i4c Publicity we have recognised these changing trends in schools and acknowledge that each school has different needs.

We offer all of our ties with the option of standard or clip-on-ties as well as Velcro or elasticated ties too.

We can manufacture a wide range of designs incorporating your school name, logo and design that meet your individual specification.

You can find out more information about our school ties on our website.

Why choose Charity Badges?

custom pin badges, personalised pin badges, charity pin badges

One of the best ways to advertise your charity is through your very own personalised Charity badge.

Charities have very distinctive logos and are easily recognisable by most of the general public. They can be given to donators and ambassadors who can raise awareness at all times by wearing their badge.

There are many benefits of a Charity having their own badges, both tangible and intangible.

  • It gives the person wearing the badge a sense of pride that they have donated and it can make them appear generous to people around them as they will know they have carried out a charitable act.
  • Badges that carry aesthetically pleasing designs means that people are more likely to wear them repeatedly and raise more awareness for your Charity. If you get the design right, people will pay good money for the right charity pin badge and can add a real fashion value.
  • Badges also carry very sentimental value – if the person wearing it feels very strongly about their chosen charity then badges are even less likely to be disposed of and can be passed down between generations.

The beauty of advertising for charities is that you are totally exempt from VAT when raising awareness for your cause.

 HMRC state that ‘The supply of advertising to a charity is zero-rated. The zero-rating covers advertisements on any subject, including staff recruitment. A charity can also purchase pre-printed collecting boxes, envelopes and appeal letters at the zero rate. Low cost lapel stickers, emblems and badges that a charity gives in acknowledgement of a donation can also be zero-rated.’

So taking all of the benefits into account – a badge is the ideal way of raising awareness for your Charity.

Here at i4c Publicity we make a wide range of Charity badges to suit your needs. We manufacture personalised badges at the shape, size, colour and texture that meet your individual needs.

Simply browse our website for more information on our Charity badges.
