Q&A - Badges
- How many must I order?
Our minimum order is just one.
- How many colours can I have?
For printed badges we produce full colour so there is no limit to the number of colours.

Simple. Just type in the list in the information box or attach your list via email or through the order box
- Can I individually personalise the badge?
Yes – as long as you give us clear instructions.
- How do I attach the badge?
Needle and thread is the best method of attaching a cloth badge but we can provide a heat applicable adhesive to the badge so that the badge can be stuck to your garment with a good iron. Velcro can also be attached to the reverse of the badge.
- Will the print fade?
No, there should be NO fade even after many washes. The print process puts the image within the material.
- Can the badge be washed?
Yes our printed badges can be washed to 50 degrees but not tumbled dried.
We recommend that they are pressed on the reverse side. They should not be dry cleaned.
Embroidered badges can be washed to 50 Degrees, tumble dried, ironed and dry cleaned.
