How to Make a Button Badge ?

Badges may make a profitable business. Anyone can do it with the right materials and equipment at hand. Firstly you will need a specific badge-making machine that assembles and presses the different parts of the badge together. It can either be manual pressers or electric assembly badge makers that do production in big numbers.


The first thing to consider in making a badge is the design. You may customize these by either hand-drawing or using graphic editing software. The most popular would probably be Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator. The innermost circle shall be the button face which is where the design goes. The outermost circle is an allowance that will be folded in and hidden once the buttons have been pressed. Also make sure that the design size or diameter matches that of the machine.

You can print out your designs using an inkjet or laser printer and use the inkjet paper to get more vibrant color and design. There are different ways of cutting your designs out. This however takes up a lot of effort and time. An adjustable rotary cutter is a machine that caters to different diameters for your button badges. It is used by people who are on tight budget but do not want to pick up a pair of scissors. Then again, the cutter is slightly difficult to use, sometimes inaccurate with its preset sizes, and may be time consuming. A graphic punch (die puncher) is a more expensive but professional cutter that produces accurate results, is efficient and user friendly, and is highly durable as it does not use any blades that may become dull. It can also punch bunches of more than 500 buttons.

Now that the designs have been cut out, it is on to the last stage of making button badges. Badge makers may differ in procedure but generally you put your cut-out design, the metal shells, and a thin clear plastic cover called Mylar into separate rings. Arrange and stack these rings accordingly with the cut-out design in the middle then align them under the machine. Pull the handle all the way down and release. Remove it from the badge maker and attach the pin back to the metal shell. This is what you use to attach onto your clothes, bags, or hats. Voila! You have now completed one badge. Repeat these steps and you are on your way to producing a successful set of button badges!

There are two types of certificates in particular, namely unofficial and official.


Unofficial certificates are awarded for participation or achievements in common events.

For example: completion of diploma, degree, masters or doctorates, achievement in completing a special training course, marriage certificate, etc.

Unofficial certificates can be designed according to your creativity and it does not require much restrictions. It can be colourful, different sizes other than the standard A4 and can be in fancy fonts. This is because it is not as influential as official certificates are. Here are some examples of unofficial certificates.

Things that you need to keep your mind on are the colour, design, fonts, thickness of paper and seal. The quality of your printing is very crucial when it comes to printing official certificates because it will need to withstand a long period of time.

Practical Ways to Start Your Certificate Printing Business

Ever wonder who prints and produce the certificates that are placed neatly in your portfolio file? Well, there are people who specifically print certificates as their job and daily income. Certificate printing is a practical business but it is taken for granted. Why do we say that? Well because it is rarely ever heard of and it is not advertised widely like we see of customised T-Shirt printing or personalised mug printing.

So here are some handy tips for you out there who are thinking of starting in this field of business.

Follow the Guidelines

There are certain rules that you have to follow when producing certificates. For example, your certificate layout designs should follow the protocols and guidelines that have been set. That’s right, there are guidelines that you have to follow. To learn more about this, you can search it online.

Printing certificates for primary schools are less strict and flexible. This is because primary school level certificates aren’t usually included in portfolios. However when printing certificates for secondary school level, university level, short courses, seminars and so on… The guidelines and rules applied for printing them are quite strict. So it is essential that before printing, you should study on the guidelines of printing certificates to ensure that you do it without mistakes.

Advertise it

Certificate printing is not as known in the market as compared to T-Shirt printing, souvenir printing, or button badge printing and many more comparable to it. So what every expert suggest when you’re in a business field that is not popular, is to invest some money into advertising your products and services. Make the public see it so they are aware that you are offering services such as certificate printing.

If you are short on budget, don’t worry! With the world’s latest technology, there is a way to advertise without using expenses. You can be active on social media and apps such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, WeChat and the list is endless. The key is to make sure that your message is sent out for the public to see.

Networking and Promoting

In any business fields, networking and promoting is vital. To get customers, this is exactly what you should do especially if you are only starting in business. Thinking and acting as a businessperson, you should be able to promote your business wherever you go. Be outgoing and friendly but do not be outspoken. Of course, there are limits and ways on how you should do it without intimidating the other person.

Another important thing that you have to remember is, always hand out to people your business card. This is a great way to spread the information because you may never know maybe the person who you gave your business card to in the first place, might recommend your business to a contact of their own. Through that, your networking can grow.

With that said and done, DIYPrintingSupply would like to wish you good luck in your businesses. Always feel free to contact any of our staff for advice or enquiries.
