Before you can issue badges, you must first create them. To create a badge, you need to make sure you have your images ready. You can use any image editing software to create your badge images, but the general requirements are as follows:
- Square image (1:1 aspect ratio). While the badges themselves can be any shape, on the Holopin platform, they will often be displayed in a square card.
- At least 512x512 pixels in size.
- PNG or SVG format.
- White outline (min 1px).
- Transparent background.
If you are creating an evolving badge, you will need several images for each level of the badge.
Note: creating badges requires your organization to have an active subscription plan and not have reached the maximum number of badges allowed by your plan.
