It’s great to see there is an ocean of hobbyist keeping film photography alive! There’s quite a few photographers here at Studio Dais, so we were super happy when we got an email from Cool Film, a UK based 35mm and medium format film subscription service asking us to manufacture their soft enamel film pins. Let’s find out more about them below!
Film Is Not Dead. The Cool Film Interview On Their Soft Enamel Film Pins
Who are you and where are you currently based?
Cool Film is a film subscription service for analogue photographers who love the 35mm and medium format film experience. We provide monthly mystery boxes that contain two rolls of 35mm or medium format film. You might remember rolls of film before digital cameras took over and everyone was taking photos on actual cellulose film. Unsurprisingly, film is not dead, and it’s a niche industry that is continuing to grow year on year, much like the love for vinyl records!
Biassed On Film Photography
We are biased but recommend anyone who is into photography to get hold of a film camera. Just avoid those single-use disposable cameras because they are not sustainable or good for the environment! We also sell film separately from our monthly mystery boxes and some cool film camera related merchandise that we design ourselves, such as these incredible enamel pins made by Studio Dais!

Tell us about your brand and the industry you are in?
We are in a very cool industry with an incredible community of people and it’s growing fast! There are lots of film photographers out there, and they are amazingly active on social media. Of course, our brand is all about the spirit of community – people who are passionate about film photography and lots of other things. Our industry is not changing fast but has been influenced a lot by digital, so it is fantastic to be able to create something ‘physical’ for our community.
The Creation of Cool Film’s Soft Enamel Film Pins!
How was it working with Studio Dais?
Working with Studio Dais was straightforward. We were surprised that they reply to emails out of hours and even on the weekends to ensure we did not miss our deadlines. We felt supported from start to finish, amazing service. Our order was fulfilled fast and on budget, especially compared to what other companies quoted. Studio Dais supported us all the way, answering all questions. We love our custom made soft enamel pins and have already ordered the second batch as demand was so high!
How have your custom pin badges from Studio Dais been used to help your business?
We ordered our logo in soft enamel film pins style, and it was so nice seeing them coming to life. Studio Dais kept us in the loop from start to finish which was real nice. Our existing and new customers love them. Custom enamel pins from Studio Dais are a nice product to add to our growing portfolio of photography related merchandise and we look forward to exploring the other products Studio Dais offer.
Any wise words of wisdom to pass on to our readers?
Whether you are ordering custom enamel pins or custom patches, don’t be afraid to experiment and ask questions. Be bold and be creative.
Taras, Cool Film.
