Badge Issuing Platforms

If you want to write and issue digital badges you will need to use a badge issuing platform. Finding the right on for you can be tricky. Badge Nation is not an issuing platform and is not locked into working with any  specific platform, however we do have platforms we like and work well with and others we suggest you avoid… 

Our Badge packages all include access to a specific badge issuing platform. The platforms we work with are below. When you sign up for a package you will be asked which platform you like the look of, but don’t worry we wont sign you up without talking to you first and making sure you have chosen the platform that  will work best for you. Equally if you want to work with an issuing platform that’s not on the list that’s totally fine too.
