FAQ


How do you produce your artwork?

Create your own badge designs at the correct size to fit within our G Series badge machines with our free online software. Click here.

You can upload images, change colours and text to suit your needs.

Simply register an account and you can save your designs to use as and when required. The software also allows you to lay your designs out in print ready format.

With each badge machine, a set of instructions are provided which includes artwork cut size information.

What paper do you recommend to print onto?

We always say that the quality of the print will determine the quality of the end product, so we recommend you use a 110/120gsm paper.

What type of printer do you recommend your artwork should be printed with?

There are many printers on the market and the big question is always inkjet or laser. A good quality laser printer will do the job, but if you have the choice then we recommend an inkjet printer to get a good depth of print colour. Inkjet printers are very readily available with a budget to suit all pockets depending on print speed and paper size etc. A print size of A4 is recommended and these are the most common size.

Can I use your components with a different manufacturer of machine?

Our G series components that we provide are only compatible and made only to be used with our G series machines.

Do machines come with a guarantee?

All of our machines come with a lifetime guarantee which we believe gives you a 100% piece of mind that you are purchasing from a trusted supplier.

How many badges can I make per hour?

We have two types of machines available. Our compact badge machine is great for beginners or small production runs, available in 38 and 59mm and can produce up to 200 badges per hour. Our semi-automatic machines are for high volumes, very easy to operate, available in nine different sizes which can produce up to 500 badges per hour.

My machine is not working. What should I do?

It is very rare that our machines go wrong which is why we are happy to offer the lifetime guarantee. Should a problem arise please contact us to discuss the reason for the malfunction and we can assess the situation.
