The size of your logo on the name tag needs to leave enough room for the names and titles that you wish to provide. Names and logos should be large enough to read from at least 10 feet away.

Logos that are short and wide look best at the top or bottom center of the tag. Logos that are square, or taller than they are in width, will look better on the left or right side of the tag.

A bleed means that the background colors of a design may extend off the edges of the tag. The design may bleed on any and all sides of the name tag. If you are creating a tag that will have an image that fills the background area of the tag or meets the edge, you will need to create the background image to the exact size, or larger, of the tag. Keep the corners of your image square even if you plan on rounding them.
