Making custom rings

Use badges to make your rings

Choose your design

You can view the videos edited by Ebadges to better understand the badge making process. The first step in the badge manufacturing process is to choose a design for your badge.

You may like the idea of drawing your design freehand, but you can also create your own designs using tools such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator for a more professional look, or use online services such as Canva.

You don’t need a special printer to print your design, but make sure you use high quality inkjet paper (not photographic paper!) to get the best quality finish.

Step 2: Cut out your creation

Now that you’ve created your design, you need to make sure it’s the right size for your badge. You can use a special cutter.

In addition, you will need a plastic ring that will form a protective layer on top of your design. It must be the same size and you only need one circle per badge.

Step 3: Create badges that will be used as a basis for creation

For this, you will need a badge machine!

A badge making machine consists of two moulds called “dies”. The first die is used to press the three elements of the badge together and the second is used to attach a safety pin or clip to the badge.

First place the metal part of the badge in the matrix, then the design of your badge and finally the clear plastic on top. Once these three elements are placed in the die, in the correct order, push down firmly with the lever to compress them together and make your badge.

The finishing of the rings

Once the visuals are made, fix the badges on the rings with strong glue, and your personalised ring is ready. With a badge machine, you can make several dozen personalised rings per hour, at a very attractive cost. Let your imagination run wild and boost your sales with personalised rings!
