Hi all.

Being a newbie to the forum I thought I'd start by offering some inspiration instead of just being a lurker!😉

I don't know if many of you still make button badges but I was experimenting with my sublimation printer and it turns out I can print lovely fully/semi - transparent designs DIRECT TO THE MYLAR DISCS that cover the badges.

This means that I can forgo printing to paper and the silver metallic face of the badge shows through my designs, producing a nice metallic sheen.

Here's a couple of examples (I also cut my own backing cards from silver holographic card with images sublimated to clear sublimatable adhesive film that I stuck to the face of the card) ...

Makes a nice change from the usual bland paper-printed badges.
