What You Need To Know Before Customizing Metal Badges

Metal components are used to manufacture metal badges that are customized to your specifications in terms of size and look. Here are a few things you should consider while creating your ideal metal badge:


The general standard size for badges are 20-25 mm depending on the intended use and design. The price increases as the size increases. Although that does not mean that if the badge is smaller, then the price will be cheaper. The design will be also taken into consideration as smaller badges, the more challenging the design to be implemented.

The badge’s size and weight directly related how comfortable it is to wear.

We offer different styling depending on the size and weight of the badge. We increase the badge needle to avoid it from falling off, if the badge is large. Magnet stickers are applied at the back of the badge to prevent leaving hole marks on clothing. In prevention of skin damage, a magnetic patch is applied to the badge.

Metal Badges


There are several metals available to use for your custom metal badge. Here are a couple of metals to choose from; 

  • Gold & Silver Plated – Commemorative badges or medals are created using plate-biting, stamping, and die casting. These badges are mostly made of gold and silver which are the most expensive, followed by copper and zinc alloy. The badge surface can be electroplated by nickel, ancient gold, or ancient silver for an added effect.

  • Copper – This material is preferably used for complex badges because it’s soft and easy to work with. The usual sizes for badges that are made of copper are 1.2 mm, 1.5 mm, or 1.8 mm thick, with storage chapter materials typically being 3 mm thick.

  • Zinc Alloy – Numerous properties of zinc alloy make it ideal for the creation of double-sided commemorative coins, mutual badges, and metal badge modification.
