Badge Reel Customization Ideas
In addition to their utility, custom badge reels are ideal for corporate giveaways and tradeshow promotions because they are very economical to customize and are easy to order in bulk.
Most customers who order custom badge reels usually add corporate logos, institutional seals, school mascots, organizational slogans, product taglines, web addresses, and phone numbers to their custom-ordered badge reels.
Custom Badge Reel Design Tips
When you order custom designed badge reels from ID Superstore, you will receive premium quality badge reels with full color photographic quality vinyl labels that are durable and can withstand the elements for years to come.
When designing your custom retractable reels, we recommend that you utilize large and bold text with minimal details in order to ensure it remains legible. Because of the limited surface area available for custom printing, having too many information could result in a “busy looking” badge reel, which dilutes the message and makes the text difficult to read from a distance.
For best results, always use high-resolution copies of your logo or seal to ensure faithful reproduction of your design on the badge reel.
How Are Badge Reels Customized?
Badge reels can be personalized in three ways:
- Direct Printing: Customer’s logo or message is printed directly onto the badge reel’s surface
- Flat Label: Custom logo is printed to a label, which is flushed with the badge reel surface
- Domed Label: A raised 3D label containing custom artwork is added to the badge reel
