The Badge of Quality
sample products from Camaloon
Whilst searching around for new venues to sell my artwork on, I came across Camaloon. Little did I know they are actually operating in Barcelona, Spain, so I decided to research a little more. After some inspection I sent in a request, as an artist, to see if they had interest in selling my artworks; both Animal Behaviour and Celebrity Sunday.
The reply came back with a welcomed interest in forming a collaboration. The business advisor there said that before we moved forward, I could receive some sample pieces of products to see the quality. Well, today is the day they arrived. And you can see them below.
On the Camaloon site there are selection of shapes you can choose from to make the badges/buttons, and I liked the idea of trying the square ones. So, in a very easy upload process I added the ten designs. During the process (if you are an artist) it also allows you to add them to your store, whilst making them.
Once done, they were manufactured and sent. Arriving a little before the estimated time (which is rare in my residential country of Greece). I opened them up and instantly saw an array of wonderful square badges/buttons.
The badges/buttons themselves are printed on a nice semi-gloss lustre finish material and wrapped around a very nice badge backing (see image above). The colours and finish all look very nice as a final product.
I give them a 4.5 rating for service, delivery and quality!!
1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste
Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
