Ordering your Photo ID Badges is quite simple if you will follow a few basic guidelines. We do most of the work for you, but the key is for you to provide the most accurate information possible. All files for the badges need to be emailed so follow the guidelines below and your order will be simple and easy.Company ID Badge with Photo

  1. Photos. The photo is the key to making the badge look professional. If you take a bad photo then the
    ID badge will look bad. There are some basic concepts to follow when taking the photos and if you follow these guidelines most of the time the badges turn out very nice.

    • Take the photos indoors. Outdoor photos make bad ID’s — they do not look professional. And yes
      do not take them indoors in front of the Christmas tree (and yes someone did)
    • Make sure you center the person in the frame of the photo. This allows us ample room to edit the photo if needed. Photos need space around the actual person to look the best.
    • Take the photos on a neutral background. Do not take the photos with patterned backgrounds or dark background.
    • Try to take all the photos exactly the same. Same distance from person, same lighting, and same background. Consistency makes for professional looking images which makes professional looking
      ID badges.
    • Send the photos full size, do not crop the images. Let us do all the work.
  2. Sending your list of people and photos. In order for us to print the correct names on the badges we need to be able to associate the photo with the name. So there are two ways to accomplish this. One is to rename the photo the name of the person. This is quite simple if you right click on the image where you have it saved on your computer and select rename on the menu. Or if that is difficult for you then list the file name, which the camera usually will call 001.JPG — then place out beside the 001.JPG — the name of the person. Like this 001.JPG — John Adams. Please do not send more than 6 photos at a time, just break the entire order into multiple emails. Don’t worry we will sort them out.
  3. Send your logo. Since most badges have logos, please send your logo in an EPS, AI, or PDF format. We can accept others if that is all you have but the files above are the best. If you have a question call us — we are here to help. Please make sure you include the PMS colors of your logo if you know them.
  4. Tell us your format. If you have an idea of how you want the ID badge let us know and we will design the badge accordingly. In most cases we produce several different designs for you to choose from. But if you have certain ideas about the layout we want to present those to you.

The main thing to remember is that we do all the work, and we know the right questions to ask to insure that your badges turn out the way you want. Our job is to make sure you are thrilled with your ID badges and that ordering is simple and easy. If you have any questions please give us a call at (888)754-8337
