You Can Now Pick Up Your Very Own Arts Admin Merit Badges


By: Drew McManus

In: Catch All

In response to the enormously positive feedback and requests asking where you can pick up actual Arts Admin Merit Badges, we decided to make them available for order.

Expected shipping for Round 1 is Monday, Nov 11 and if they sell out of most by the end of November, rest assured Round 2 will be a much larger order to accommodate holiday gift giving (because who wouldn’t love to get a set!?!).

Round 1 includes 17 different badges that you can mix and match at any quantity. Each badge is a 3″ diameter made from a thick durable vinyl that protects your stickers from scratches, water, and sunlight.

Regardless of quantity, every order includes free USPS shipping and there are no minimum order quantities. The cost is only $12.50/each (and free shipping) and a bevy of quantity discount tiers:

  • Buy 5-9: 20% discount ($10.00 each)
  • Buy 10-19: 30% discount ($8.75 each)
  • Buy 20-49: 40% discount ($7.50 each)
  • Buy 50+: 50% discount ($6.25 each)

Each merit badge sticker is 3″ diameter and made out of a thick, durable vinyl to protect your stickers from scratches, water and sunlight. The full list of all 17 Round 1 badges is available on the order page.

I bring 20+ years of global broad-based arts consulting experience to the table to help clients break the cycle of choosing one-size-fits-none solutions and instead, deliver options allowing them to get ahead of the tech curve instead of trying to catch up by going slower. With the vision of legacy support strategy and the delights of creative insights, my mission is to deliver a sophisticated next generation technology designed especially for the field of performing arts. The first step in that journey began in 2010 when The Venture Platform was released, a purpose-designed managed website development solution designed especially for arts organizations and artists. For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, lead a team of intrepid arts pros to hack the arts, lead an arts business incubator, and love a good coffee drink.

  1. This makes sense with what I learned in girl guides…I hope these will be embroidered and as beautiful as the Girl Guide/Boy Scouts badges are. Thanks for thinking of ways to reward human capital!

    • I’m so glad to hear you like them. For clarity, these are not actual embroidered patches; rather, they are the same type of vinyl stickers you see being used as laptop and notebook stickers. I’m also very sorry to say that as of now, shipping to Canada is so cost prohibitive that it isn’t yet an option. to that end, if anyone has a hack on how to make that a more affordable option, I am all ears!
