How to Make Badges for Events

Posted by MakeBadges on 26th Jun 2023

Badges serve a multitude of purposes, from helping with networking to providing a lasting memento. At a large event, a badge can become a conversation starter, providing a snapshot of who each attendee is and what they represent. What do you think the other benefits are? Let’s find out!

When preparing for a large event, badges might be the last thing on your mind. But we’re here to show you why that should change and how your life can be made easier with event badges.

At Make Badges, we specialise in simplifying the process of designing and ordering badges for your business, event or school. In this piece, we will cover why you should never underestimate the power of a simple badge at an event and how you can make things easier by ordering them with us.

How Can You Create Good Designs for Your Badges?

When creating your badges, it's important to keep aesthetics in mind so you don't end up with a generic and bland design. Here are a couple of tips that will help with the process:

Cohesive Designs & Graphics

Your badge design should align with your brand or event theme. This includes colours, fonts, logos, and overall style. A badge is a direct representation of your event and your brand, and it should be consistent with your other promotional materials. This not only helps reinforce your brand identity but also creates a cohesive experience for attendees.

Simple Designs

Avoid overly complicated designs that may detract from the main purpose of your badge. Use a clean layout and keep the design simple. Less is often more when it comes to design.

Take Inspiration

Look at other badges for inspiration. Check out badges from similar events, or look up design websites and forums for ideas. Seeing what others have done successfully can help spark your creativity.

We all suggest getting feedback on your design from others, as they may have useful insights or suggestions that you still need to consider.

What Is the Process for Creating and Ordering Your Own Designs?

Creating your bespoke event badges with Make Badges is straightforward and can be easily completed with these easy steps:

Explore the Design Platform

Begin by firing up Make Badges' intuitive design studio. Explore our collection of templates or create your own design that aligns with your event's requirements.

Edit Your Design

Leverage the easy-to-use online design studio to infuse a personal touch into your event badge. You have the flexibility to insert text like names or job titles, upload your distinctive logo, and select your desired colour palette and typography.

Once your customisation is complete, preview your creation to ensure it aligns with your brand's vision and fulfils your specific needs.

Determine the Quantity

Specify the number of personalised name badges you wish to procure. Remember, Make Badges places no constraints on minimum order quantity.

Evaluate your requirements and schedule to decide if you need standard production (around four business days) or prefer expedited production (approximately two business days).


Once you're content with your design, quantity, and production speed, it's time to add the items to your cart.

For orders exceeding $100, you'll receive complimentary standard shipping.

Ensure you thoroughly verify your order for accuracy before final submission. If you need further assistance, check out our video tutorial here.

How Many Event Badges Should I Order?

At Make Badges, we firmly believe in catering to all our client's needs, big or small. We are committed to providing flexibility and convenience, which is why we have implemented a 'no minimum order policy. This means you can order exactly the number of badges you need, be it 1 or 100,000.

Our commitment to this policy stems from an understanding that every event or business has unique requirements. We recognise that a small business may require only a handful of custom event badges for regular days, while a large conference or trade show might need several thousand. Make Badges don't want you to purchase more than you need or worry about meeting high minimum order quantities.

This policy is also beneficial for businesses that require periodic re-orders. Maybe you have new employees joining every month, or perhaps your business hosts regular events where you need a fresh batch of badges. In such cases, our 'no minimum order' policy allows you to order exactly the quantity you need, whenever you need it.

We also understand that in certain circumstances, you might need to place a last-minute order or top-up order for a few additional badges. With our two day delivery option, you can receive your products on time with no hassle and no minimum order.

By offering this flexibility, we aim to provide a seamless and stress-free ordering experience, irrespective of the size or frequency of your event badge requirements. It's yet another way we at Make Badges strive to deliver superior service and effectively meet our customers' needs.
