Technical tolerances aside, size is often determined by personal choice or initial advice from our skilled studio design team. Generally, the bigger the size the higher the cost, but as a guide 25mm is the most popular size for a traditional metal badge.
If your design is too complex for the size you request, we will contact you and
advise the options available.
After your order is placed our studio will send you a detailed, compatible design which often will include our studio’s creative suggestions and size options.
We offer a wide range of stock fixings to suit most customers needs, many shown below, and will always advise the most suitable for your product and it’s intended use.
We also supply superior ‘Ballou’ clutch and safety fixings, which are ideal for more robust use, suggested for our military and schools customers.
See our Fixings Page for more information.
We offer a wide range of both stock & personalised items to enhance & increase perceived value to your product which includes: Informative custom made backing
cards, charity display boxes, wallets, coin capsules, leatherette and plastic boxes, and bespoke custom made items.
Your product will always be designed and resubmitted by our Yorkshire based in-house design team as a PVC badge, typically these are drawn as vectors using Adobe Illustrator, so if you are sending over your own design the ideal file types are Illustrator, PDF, and EPS – However we can work from any high quality file or rough sketch!
We typically use capitalised sans-serif fonts in order to achieve the most legible text, we advise avoiding excessive wording, complicated fonts, or very small text (6pt size being the smallest). If you would like a specific font used please let us know and we will check it for you.
Deliveries are approximately 4 working weeks from visual approval.
We aim to supply a compatible visual proof within 24 hours, however during busy periods please allow up to 3 working days depending on the complexity of your design – See our Design page for more information about our in-house design studio.
