Are you looking to design an enamel badge? No matter your level of design skill or your experience with promotional merchandise, we are here to help you design a great enamel badge. Perhaps you have just a loose idea for a badge design, or maybe you have a design ready to go, but need a little help converting your image to badge specifications. Or are you a skilled designer or artist ready to talk about the best badge materials and colour matching?

When it comes to designing the perfect badge, you have a lot of options. We know that it can seem daunting. To help you out, we outline three different paths you can take to design the perfect badge. Which group do you fall in?

I’m Starting from Scratch

Do you have an idea or vision for a badge, but you’re just not sure how to execute it? You’re not alone. Many of our customers come to us with a general idea, and we talk through their ideas to help them execute their vision for promotional merchandise. We offer free design help, always, and will have early conversations with you to create a custom badge design from scratch. You’ll get to speak with our expert designers who will help turn your ideas into the perfect badge, including the design, material, size, shape and even complementary packaging, if you’d like it. Here’s a great example from the School of Chocolate, who came to us with their ideas, resulting in this brilliant badge.

I Want to Recreate a Design or Logo

Perhaps you have a design in hand – like a company logo or original artwork that you created – and just need a little extra design help. Great! We can help you translate your design into the proper badge specifications.

You’ll start by meeting with me or one of our other fabulous account managers, who have all been supplying custom products to brands, artists and charities for at least ten years. We’re also conscious of your budget and will work to provide the best service at the best price. In general, here’s how we’ll turn your design into a brilliant badge, as part of our always-free design service:

  1. We’ll meet up with you in person or over the phone to discuss your designs and your budget.
  2. Based on our discussion and the design you supply, we’ll convert or produce a free design and artwork in our experienced studio.
  3. You can review, tweak and select the designs you like best.
  4. We’ll supply a quote for your design.
  5. You place the order.
  6. If you would like, you can receive a pre-production sample for review.
  7. Once you are happy, we ethically manufacture and deliver your special goods!

For example, we helped Hookpod come up with the design for these badges:

I’m Designing my Own

We work with a lot of companies, artists and illustrators who supply their own designs for badges. This includes brands and businesses with in-house design teams. If you’d like to design your own badge, we’ll support you through the entire process and turn any design you create into the perfect customised badge. After all, we like to say, if you can think it, we can make it!

There’s a lot of factors that go into ensuring that your badge is the best possible rendition of your design, including material, colour, font and shape. We’ll match your custom shape and pantone colours for an exact replica of your design. For example, we helped illustrator Laura Crow turn her designs into these super-cool book pin badges:
