What is a perfect gift to give to a recent graduate that is just entering or re-entering the work force? Super handy, this badge reel with a university or military emblem allows an employee to clip their I.D., key card or keys to a polyester cord that winds back into its reel.

Normally, workplaces require staff to present their I.D. card at all times or have doors that for security purposes, only open with keys or card keys. Our designer reel badges are just the functional piece of jewelry that not only shows off your Alma mater or service branch, but also makes swiping your I.D. or key card super easy.


If you’re an alumni, current college student or military personnel, this metal reel that attaches with a simple clip –no pins that can ruin your clothes!- is an excellent way to show your pride and credentials all at once.

So congratulations are due! You worked hard to get where you are and you absolutely have a great fete to be happy about.

And, hey. Share it! BooJee Beads university merchandise makes attractive, functional gifts for your colleagues and university friends. Truly, not very many people have something that they wear every day, can be proud of, is attractive, durable and so functional! They will thank you.


The reel contains a 30” retractable cord so that you can tug on your I.D. or keys and then coil it back into the piece.

Each reel is made of pewter, a mixed metal of mostly tin, with traces of copper, antimony, bismuth and sometimes silver or lead.
