How to Choose Your Custom Badges?

1. Understand the use of custom badges

Understanding the purpose and application of the badge is the first step to start making your custom made medallions. Is the custom badge a unit employee badge, a factory badge, a tourist souvenir, or a fashion accessory? Before customizing the badge, you must first have a clear positioning of your badge product. Of course, if you don't have a little idea, Pinstar will guide you step by step.


2. Understand the production process of custom badges

Remember, what we need is the custom badge that best suits us. If you want a concave-convex effect, you can use baking varnish, stamping (using copper, iron, the surface of the badge can be gold-plated, nickel-plated, etc.); if you want custom made button badges with a smooth surface, you can choose screen printing, Cloisonne (enamel), imitation cloisonne (imitation enamel), bite version, rotted version, etc. If you need a badge with a gradual color pattern, you must use lithography (drip badge), which usually adds a layer of transparent protective resin (also known as Polly) on the surface, which will make the surface of the custom badges slightly convex.


3. Selection of custom badge materials

Copper (recommended), stainless steel, iron (low price), other non-metallic materials (acrylic, plexiglass, two-color board, soft PVC, etc., such as making bathroom key tags and other places with water, please use acrylic, two-color boards, etc. which are not afraid of water.


4. Price selection of custom badges

The price of custom badges is largely determined by badge materials, craftsmanship, size, and quantity. If you have ample budget, please choose copper metal badges. If the price of badges is cheaper, please choose iron badges. The general price is enamel> anti-enamel> baking varnish, stamping > biting, photo etching> printing.


5. Suggestions of design drawings for custom badges:

The more complex the design, the more colors, the higher the price, and many badge effects cannot be achieved in actual production. For example, if the direct spacing between the lines on the badge is less than 1mm, it will be difficult to handle. If you want good results, all badge designs are recommended to be as simple and generous as possible.
