File Formats (and other techy stuff)

Send these!

Don't send these!

File Resolution

Files need to be 300 dots per inch (‘dpi’). This ensure a sharp print. Files with less dpi may have a lower quality print. If you don’t know what the dpi is, send it when ordering and we’ll check.

If you are sending a non vector file it needs be in a large dimension so there’s enough to scale down onto a badge. A small file needs to be stretched out and loses quality. Aim for 500px.

PSD Templates

These templates will help if you’re using Photoshop to send your design. (Don’t worry if you don’t have Photoshop, these are not essential.)

Design Tips: 3 Essentials for a great badge

Avoid all the common mistakes on a design. It will ensure your image doesn’t rejected for printing.

1: Keep good spacing around your design

Your design needs space around the edge. This is so it can wrap around the badge without any visible gaps. (This is what’s called ‘bleed’). 

Left image – The finished badge has a solid black background visible because there wasn’t enough bleed on the original image. 

Right image – No gaps visible as the original design had plenty of bleed.

2: Remember the shape it's going into

Your design is going to need to fit into a circle. Something that looks good at normal size might look too small when reduced down. Take into account the shape of the design.

Left image – A long name looks fine at normal size, but notice how hard it is to squeeze it into a circle, and leaves quite a lot of space.

Right image – When broken up onto more lines, it fits much better.

3: Keep equal ratios with images and text

If you have an design with a logo and text, there may be an issue if one is bigger than the other. Something that’s readable at normal size might be hard to read when reduced down. 

Left image – The logo looks ok at normal size but the text size ends up being an issue when reduced down.

Right image – When the ratio of image and text is closer, there are no issues with text size.
