With our new digital process it is simpler and less expensive. Just email us your high resolution logo in Pdf..jpeg, .eps, .gif, or .bmp format. If you prefer black & white, send it in black & white. There is a one time charge of $20.00 (in house) $30 (done by our Supplier) for each logo. "Out of house" logos require 14-21 days. Some colors, or types of logo detail, may require a different process . So then would require our supplier apply the logo. No fee to apply the same logo on future orders (with same logo and setup)
300dpi, or larger, files for best detail.
We produce your badges using a high quality dye-sublimation printing process (Thermal) and then overlay a clear coat to protect the badge further.
They are the same price and look exactly the same. Aluminum badges are lighter. They will not rust, which occurs most often in areas near salt water or maintenance shops where oils, chemicals, etc. are being used. Also, employees that work outside in hot weather may have this problem. Steel may be slightly more durable and is still more popular but many people are switching to aluminum.
The magnet goes behind your blouse or shirt and the badge outside, thus no holes in your blouse or shirt.
Magnetic badges should be kept away from pacemakers.
Magnets are coated in plastic.
