How to Choose a Badge Cutout

Search through the cutouts using cutout number, badge model, badge shape (category) or badge height. Pay close attention to the size information listed for the cutout. If you think you have found the correct PF Cut, print the page to compare your badge with the printout. Do not choose scale or print to fit options when you print. IMPORTANT: The Firefox browser will print the badge images actual size. Some browsers, like Chrome, tend to make the printed image a little too large. You must verify that the size of the printed image matches the listed size for that cutout. Place your badge on the printout to ensure a good match for size and shape.

Select a Cutout Brand

Some products have a recessed cutout for a particular badge model. There are two brands for cutouts: Perfect Fit Shield Wallets and D&K. When a form has a choice for cutout brand, be sure to select the correct cutout brand. Cutout numbers for D&K brand begin with DK. The Perfect Fit numbers do not always have the PF designator before a cutout number.
