Flexible badge maker that won't limit your creativity


How to download the badge design to a PNG file?

Digital makers usually won't let you download designs to the external file. You must send them within the tool. But, with Certifier – you have a choice. With a few easy steps, you can create digital badges in PNG, ready to land on your desktop.

Step 1: Join the Certifier family

First up, hop onto Certifier – it's on the house (yep, we have a forever-free plan!). Here's where you start making outstanding badges. Ready to boost your brand recognition with some slick digital badges? Sign up.

Step 2: Create a digital badge design template

Go to the Designs tab and choose Badge Design.

Creating a new badge design.

Start with finding the right badge template from our collection of professionally designed templates. Don't worry about the colors at this stage. Focus on the shape and style that match your branding. You'll be able to change the background, ribbons, etc., later on. Whether your company's logo is sharp or rounded, choose a template that complements its design for a cohesive look.

Choosing the badge design template to start creating badges.

Didn't find a suitable template? You can create a badge from scratch as well. Certifier provides a library of bases, ribbons, and icons that you can use back and forth until you come up with your own unique badge idea.

Customize your badge design and adjust the design elements to suit your brand. Change colors, add your badge logo, and select matching fonts with just a few clicks.

Adjusting the badge design to the branding within the Certifier design builder.

With Certifier, you can upload own image with transparent backgrounds or even in SVG to change each graphic element within the tool. Our badge creator also allows you to simply drag and drop elements, so the process of creating a badge is straightforward and free from much manual work.

Uploading the company's logo to Certifier.

Step 3: Save the design and name the event

Now, your badge has the professional look needed and is ready to save. Click the “Save” blue button at the top right corner.

If you’re a new Certifier user, it will trigger the window to name your first event and fill in data about participants. Upload recipients’ data via Excel or Google Sheets or add them one by one. As a result, badges can be generated individually for each recipient.

Uploading the recipients' data via Certifier.

Step 4: Download your badge design

The last step – download the custom badges to PNG. Navigate to the Credentials tab. Click the “View” button under the Actions column.

From there, go the the “Recipient View”.

Going to the Recipient View to download the badge to PNG.

From the Recipient’s Wallet dashboard, select “Download” to get the badge design in the PNG format.


Bonus: Leverage digital badges more than PNG ones

Skill, qualification, or level – it's the central part of your badge design. Certifier knows it and allows you to assign specific skills tags to your badges so that they will be prominently displayed next to the digital version of the badge. It's an excellent way to highlight achievements and skills in a more detailed manner.

Go to the Groups tab and click "Create Group" to create a new recipients' collection (or open the already created one). Choose a Public Group Name. You can also enclose an event link to redirect badge viewers to the particular page. Then, start typing the skills tags. Select the badge design that you have just prepared.

If you're editing the already created group – any changes you make will be updated automatically on each badge.

Setting up the skill tags in the Certifier dashboard.

Why is it for? Once your recipient gets the email with the badge, they get access to the dedicated badge page, called the recipient's wallet. So, e.g., when future recipient’s employer gets the link to this page, they can quickly find out which skills the badge covers in the first place.

Did you know?

Digital badges were designed as an alternative to a certificate, with the idea of celebrating the smaller yet significant milestones. You can use them to motivate your team as they progress or add a fun gamification element to your workplace. They’re a hit with HR for keeping track of how everyone's growing professionally. They’re a cool, modern nod to achievements, and they’re super simple to share. And the cherry on top? You can paste them on emails, websites, or even turn them into stickers. Pretty neat, right?

Best practices to design and use custom badges

Make the badge mean something

Design digital badges that display the achievement or skill they represent. For example, a badge for completing a coding course should visually convey something about IT technology. Thus, others can instantly recognize the badge. Add value and meaning – and make the badge a more effective motivator.

Kick off with the perfect badge template

Think of picking your badge template like choosing the best outfit for a first date. No matter if you're looking for the badge after a course or webinar, there's a template in the Certifier library that fits just right. And don't sweat the color scheme right up front – the editor provides many customization options to make it your own.

Splash your brand all over

Make your badges look sharp by adding your logo, colors, and style. It's like giving your brand a shoutout every time someone earns or shares a badge. It links that cool achievement right back to you. And, when all your badges have that consistent vibe, it’s a smooth move to make your brand stick in people's minds.

Design for clarity

A great digital badge should be visually striking and easy to understand at a glance. Use clear, simple images and text that communicate the badge's purpose without clutter. High-contrast colors and matching fonts boost visibility and readability, so the badge stands out in any context.

Badge icon as a secret ingredient

What if your badge will be a book cover? What's the one image that'll make someone want to discover more? That's what your icon should do. Pick something that instantly tells the story of the achievement or skill. It's about adding that layer that sticks with people long after they've seen it.

Personalize with dynamic content

Want to make each badge feel like it was handcrafted just for the recipient? That's where dynamic content comes into play. They automatically adjust, e.g., badge ID number or date of issue, to fit its new owner perfectly. Suddenly, creating hundreds of badges feels like a walk in the park.
