Little Design guide
Few things you might find helpful for some of the most common materials.
Metal & Enamel
Designing in metal and enamel has its set of constrains, whether it is a small enamel badge, large 3D medal or enamel keyring, they all have a similar set of rules.
Each enamel colour requires a (metal) die line between them, this acts like a wall to stop enamel mixing together.
Smallest die line is 0.2mm thickness, so when designing in enamel and metal set your line tool to 0.2mm as the smallest line we can achieve.
Smallest text as a guide line is helvetica 4pt, but please check any special fonts with a line at 0.2mm for size.
Please allow about 0.3mm for an enamel line. Enamel starts life as a liquid, and it is hand syringed into the the space, 0.3mm is very small but still achivable.
If you don't require enamel in your design and just raised and polished, the 0.2mm paramenter still applies but we do have a range of textured finishes available to enhance the design.
Badges come in various platings, standard Gold, Nickel, Bronze, but also other platings, such as antiqued silver, brass and more. We will discuss and visualise the plating that best suits your job.
Embroidered & Woven
Woven cloth, just like those swimming patches you got for fetching a rubber brick from the deep end in your pyjamas.
Try stick to the smallest line as being 0.4mm
Can have an over locked edge or laser cut
PVC, is a soft rubber material, that is great for vibrant colours, normally used for keyrings, but can be used for badges too.
PVC can be built up in different layers creating nice colourfull products,
Some colours may require to be seperated by a grove due to manufacture, this grove is approx 0.4mm wide, but we will advise on each design submitted.
We use the pantone reference system for colours, The Pantone Color Matching System is largely a standardized color reproduction system. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all refer to the Pantone system to make sure colors match without direct contact with one another. For full colour items that use photographs we use CMYK Printing.
