Let’s Badge It Up! Designing the Perfect Button Badge

Button badges: those miniature masterpieces of self-expression and statement-making. 

Whether you’re rocking a funny slogan, sporting your fandom pride, or showcasing your artistic talent, they’re a delightful way to add a touch of personality to your outfit or your bag. 

But where do you even begin when it comes to creating your own design? Fear not, crafty friends, for Loliglo Creative is here to guide you through the wonderful world of badge design!

First things first: What can you put on a badge?

The possibilities are truly endless! Here are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

  • Words and phrases: Share your personal beliefs, interests, or funny catch phrases on a badge. Slogans, quotes, inside jokes, funny sayings – let your text do the talking!
  • Illustrations and artwork: Original drawings, digital doodles, paintings, or even photographs – unleash your inner artist!
  • Symbols and icons: Represent your favourite bands, fandoms, sports teams, or causes with recognisable imagery.
  • Patterns and textures: Play with geometric shapes, vibrant colours, or natural textures to create eye-catching designs.
  • Photos and collages: Personalise your badge with your own pictures or combine them with other elements for a unique touch.
  • Interactive elements: QR codes leading to secret messages or website addresses – take your badge to the next level!

Designing for Success:

Now that your head is buzzing with ideas, let’s translate them into stunning badge designs. Remember, we require your artwork in high-resolution JPG or photo format, so keep these tips in mind:

  • Size it up: Consider the size of your badge (we offer 32mm and 44mm circle badges) and ensure your design fits within that space without overcrowding. Leave a small area around your badge as a safety measure to ensure the design is not cut off.
  • Resolution matters: Use images with good resolution, at least 300dpi, for sharp and pixel-free printing.
  • Keep it simple: While complex designs can be beautiful, remember that badges are small. Opt for clear lines, bold colours, and easy-to-read text.
  • Contrast is king: Ensure there’s enough contrast between text, colours, and background elements for your design to pop.
  • Don’t forget the text: If including text, choose a readable font size and style.
