The following suggestions are to help you with the design of your badge - and to help us produce the best quality badges for you.
make sure that your design is at least a couple of mm less than the face of the badge, so for a 25mm badge, make sure it's no more than 23mm, so it doesn't fall off the edge.
You should make the background of the design 10mm larger (for 25mm badges), to allow for the overlap around the edge of the badge.
Don't worry about the overall graphic being round. It's only the central image that will be on the face of the badge, so it doesn't matter if the background it sits on is square (as long as it is big enough) - the corners just get cut off when we fit it to the badge. As long as you can send the design as a high-quality file, we will do our very best to fit it to the badge for you.
Most people send JPEG files, but we can also deal with most other file types such as tiff or psd. If in doubt, just ask us. Do not send graphics in MS Word or Powerpoint as these files are not suitable for printing.
