Provokateur starts Badgering

Is it a bit sad to get so excited about the acquisition of a top of the range badge making machine? In the real world, perhaps – but not here at Provokateur Towers. So please, join us in saying ‘hello’ to the Micro Multi Die Badge Machine. More importantly, watch this space as we get into full badge-making stride! Next week: Chris buys crayons!
