Which size badges should I choose?

We make 2 different sizes of badges.  
Standard 25mm (1 inch) and bigger 38mm (1.5 inch) badges.
If you aren't sure which size badges are suitable for your needs then read on!

Since January 2014 we are now using new improved industry leading components. Please see the image below.

25mm (1 inch) badges
These are the most commonly used size in the UK.  They are roughly the diameter of a ten pence piece. Please see the image below to see the size. Our 25mm badges are particularly popular with bands. This size is great for a small logo, design or small amount of text. Due to the fact they are so cheap they are great for promotional giveaways!  If you intend people to wear your badge regularly then this is the most practical size.  Our 25mm badges are standard traditional button badges which attach with a standard metal 'D pin'. 

38mm (1.5inch) badges
This size is great when you need bigger text, a large amount of text, or a photo on your badges. This size is popular with businesses who are undertaking promotional activities and need their message to be clear.  This 38mm size is also a popular choice for stag and hen party organisers, birthdays and events.  As per the image below our 38mm badges have a metal back and attach with a modern metal pin.
