Q) If artwork is supplied in which format should it be?

A) We use Adobe Illustrator to design all artwork for our name badges. And so should be sent to us as .ai file.  But we do also accept PDF’s.  If you are only supplying your logo to us in order to design the layout for you. Then  please supply this in JPEG or PDF format along with the names you require on each badge.

Q) Are the name badges scratch-proof?

A) The name badges are finished off with a clear resin dome glossy sealer. And this is very difficult to scratch. As such your badges will be left looking newer for longer.

Q) How will I know what my badge will look like before it is made?

A) A proof will be emailed to you before any printing is done. And once the badge is printed the proofs are sent in white and will only be applied to Gold or Silver (if this was chosen). All proofing is done with a white background.  And this proof will be emailed with an invoice for the badges.

Q) How do payments work for the badges?

A) Once you have received the proof and are happy with the layout of your badges, your invoice that was sent with the proof will need to be paid in full and proof of payment faxed or emailed to us in order to process your order. And once proof of payment is received, the badges are completed within 4-5 working days and are ready to be collected or delivered.

Q) Do you offer resellers, printing shops, etc special rates?

A) Yes we do. But please contact us for an accurate quotation.

Q) Can I have as much colour as I want on the badges?

A) Yes, badges may be full colour if preferred.  However we do not charge you extra for this.

Q) What is the standard badge size?

A) Standard badge size is 60mm x 20mm. But sometimes if the clients logo is too long to fit the logo and name next to each other the logo is placed above the name giving you a 58mm x 22mm badge.
