1 | SIZE OF BADGES
The provided Top Training Companies badges must not be resized in a way that changes their proportion and must not be cropped, modified, or otherwise changed from the colors and shape provided.
Top Training Companies badges are provided for your use in three sizes: large, medium and minimum. We recommend they are used at 100% scale of the sizes provided. If you must resize these badges, you may reduce the size of the “large” and “medium” graphics provided but must not increase the size. The minimum permissible size for a Top Training Companies badge is 90 pixels wide for web, email or similar digital use or 0.83 inches wide when used in print.
For digital use at small sizes, we have provided a 50-pixel wide thumbnail version of the badges.
You may use this size on any digital communication, provided you not resize the thumbnails and that any such use is done in combination with a live hyperlink from the badge thumbnail to the official Top Training Companies webpage: https://trainingindustry.com/top-training-companies/.
Larger badge sizes, if needed, will be provided upon request.

If you have any questions about these guidelines, or want to request a specific or large badge image for a specific use, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ve provided three full-size options (large, medium and minimum) and one thumbnail size. Larger badge sizes, if needed, will be provided upon request.
