How to choose the right material and process?

  1. First clarify the scope and usefulness of the badge

Only by knowing the scope and specific use of the badge can we choose the appropriate craft and material to properly reflect its meaning. For example, some badges worn by hotel staff clothing, generally choose bright, gold-plated, stainless steel, etc. The price is moderate and can well reflect the high-end quality of the hotel For clothing, the design of badges should be emphasized, and the craftsmanship and materials should be matched according to the specific clothes, companies, travel commemorations, medals of honor, and clearly understand the purpose of your badges.

The more complex the design pattern, the color The more there are, the more expensive the price will be, and some of them may not be able to be produced now. Even so, good design cannot be limited to the production process.

  1. Process understanding and selection

Baking paint process: bright colors, clear and crisp lines, strong texture of metal materials, color paste pigments (Pantone color) in the concave parts, various gold plating, nickel plating and other electroplating effects (metallic colors) in the raised parts. Copper can be used , zinc alloy or iron as raw materials, among which iron paint is cheap and good!

The surface of the baking varnish badge can be covered with a layer of transparent protective resin (Poly), commonly known as “glue drop” (note that due to the refraction of light, the surface of the badge will be bright after applying the glue), but the paint badge after adding resin Lost the bump.

Corrosion process: The bite plate products are said to have fine lines and beautiful overall colors. They are often on the plaques. Stainless steel corrosion signs are the most common one. The concave and convex parts can be painted.

Stamping Badge:

Commonly used badge materials include copper (copper, red copper, bronze, etc.), zinc alloy, aluminum, iron, etc., which can also be called metal badges. Among them, copper is the softest and most suitable for making badges, so the lines of copper-pressed badges The clearest, followed by zinc alloy badges, the price of the corresponding copper stamped badges is also the highest. Zinc alloy die-casting process is more suitable for inscribed badges.

The surface of the stamped badge can be plated with various plating effects, including gold plating, nickel, copper, bronze, antique silver, etc. The concave part of the stamped badge can also be processed into a frosted effect.

thePrinted Badge:

It is divided into screen printing and lithographic printing. Generally, it is also called glue badge, because the final process of the badge is to add a layer of transparent protective resin (Poly) on the surface of the badge, and the materials used are mainly stainless steel and bronze. . The picture on the right shows the effect of the back of the bronze. The copper or stainless steel surface of the printed badge is not electroplated, and it is treated with natural color or brushed.

theScreen printing badge:

Generally, the graphics are relatively simple, if the color has no gradient, you can use screen printing, and the screen printing is more convenient to operate. If the graphics are simple, you can use it, and the price is cheaper than offset printing. But if the graphics have gradient colors, you can only use offset printing. The surface of the badge uses a screen to overprint various small graphics and texts
