Preparing a Custom Badge Design with EventNook
First off, Choose a Badge Size: (E.g., 4x6 inch)
Design artwork with a size ratio of 4 by 6 dimensions in high-resolution pixels (if the badge size is 4x6 inches). It's like designing a postcard or a business card with a specific card dimension.
You can mock up where you want to place the delegate's information, such as Name, Company, Delegate Category, etc.
Provide artwork in adobe illustrator (ai) file format for high-resolution printing quality.
(Optional) If you want a rounded edge design badge and lanyard hole, the artwork file will not require rounded corners and Lanyard holes (but feel free to add them for mock-up purposes), and the printing vendor will include them in the final printing process.
