Our 25mm button badges (or as they are sometimes referred to ‘the mini retro badge’) are as popular now as they ever were. Perfect for getting your cosplay costume or character image or a logo noticed in a subtle but very cool way. They are also rather good for event staffing and management using colours or numbers (i.e. all green, all red, all blue badges etc.. A team, B team, C team etc..) as they are discreet but can be easily seen on a blazer, polo or event shirt.
All our custom printed badges feature your full colour design, a glossy protective finish and a safety steel (not plastic) pin-back. Great to wear, hand out as a promo or freebie, or even sell as they are or part of a pack of goodies. Perfect for charities and good cause organisations, event give aways, businesses, bands, and costumers.
Best Badge Tips for great results…
Download and use (or refer to) the free templates we provide to make sure your artwork will fit, and be placed correctly.
If it looks too small on screen, it will probably look very small when printed. TIP: Keep the design for 25mm retro badges as clear and simple as possible. The busier the design, the less effective it will be. If it’s too busy and you don’t want to / can’t alter the design (or you just love what you’ve created), consider using the larger 38mm or even 58mm badge to get the best out of your design.
Think carefully about any text in your design, and what size of badge you are aiming for. Small text will not be as effective as bold, larger text on a smaller product. Again, please don’t try to squeeze too much text onto the 25mm retro badge.
Create your finished artwork with a resolution of 300dpi – the larger and clearer your file is, the better the end result will be when printed here. Please note – if you send 72dpi or low quality images we cannot magically make them 300dpi high quality images, and this will possible affect the finished quality of your badges.
Designs with contrasting colours will produce clearer prints – dark purple text on a red or black background will not stand out or read clearly (if at all).
If you don’t have any suitable artwork, or imaging editing software, or feel your design skills are not up to putting something together, we can create a design for you. Please contact us for details and a quote. If you are looking for character illustration artwork, please click here.
We will contact you on receipt of your order with a link to upload your artwork.
