Supplying artwork for your badge

Below are guidelines for supplying badge artwork and logos

Yes, we can make you a badge design free of charge in most cases, but if you’d prefer to supply your own that’s fine !

Formats we prefer:
–  Adobe PDF
–  CorelDraw (X4 or below)
–  Adobe Illustrator
–  Adobe inDesign (CS5 or below)

Other file types we can work with:
–  Any bitmap formats (jpeg, png, tif,
    psd, etc saved at high quality settings)
–  MicroSoft Word
–  Affinity Designer

Multiple Badges or Large quantities:
When ordering large amounts of badges, we only require one ‘base’ artwork to work from. A list can be supplied of the names/titles etc, for the bulk of the order in Word/Excel, or similar.

If just supplying your logo:
A PDF vector file is great, jpeg or similar bitmap format should be fine - as long as it’s an appropriate size (approx. 300-400 pixels high is usually fine for a name badge - i.e. not tiny too on your computer screen).

Important: Colours, fonts and size

Colours: If you have a specific colour you require please let us know when you order - we will do our best to match this. Supplying a Pantone colour is preferable.

Special Fonts: In most cases converting fonts used in your document to outlines/curves is requested (as we don’t have every font). Supplying us with your font is another option.

Size: Please refer to the badge size charts for the correct size for your badge artwork. If colours or images are to go to the edge of the design, please allow extra around the edges 1mm (bleed) for this.

Small canvas

Remember what’s most important on a name badge… the Name!

Your company or organisation’s logo can also be important - but remember a name badge is a very small canvas and it’s there to communicate someone’s name. Try and use a minimum of design content and keep it readable from a reasonable distance.

If you have any questions regarding supplying your design/logo please let us know by emailing info@thebadgeteam.co.nz
