The Best File Types for Your Custom Bulk Metal Badge Pin Artwork
The best way to submit artwork for pins is with vector flies. This includes .Ai files, .PDF files and .EPS files. We also accept bitmap files like .JPEGs and .PNGs, but that is because we will render them into vector files and get them production ready. Many manufacturers don’t offer this service, and won’t accept anything other than production-ready vector files.
The biggest things to keep in mind when you’re creating a custom pin are production minimums and tolerances. One of the biggest mistakes we see when artists send us their enamel pin design files is that the artwork is not created in the correct scale for production. Sometimes, scaling down the artwork simply isn’t enough. We can get into some of the production stuff shortly, but first lets discuss colors.
