Where to Get Those Nifty Web Badges?

Check out my new web badge at the top of this, and every post! If you've been blogging for a while, you have probably noticed these little 80 x 15 icons. They seem to be plastered all over the Web, though I have to admit I never noticed them much before I started this blog. In blogging lingo, these tiny graphics are called web badges, and I have found a couple of great sites for getting and/or creating them.

Topping the list is the 80x15 Brilliant Button maker, a cool tool from Luca Zappa that lets you generate your own 80x15 badges. I used it to create the WebLens badge, in seconds.

Equally useful is Zwahlen Design's Web Badges page, which features a large collection of ready-made badges you can grab, and a discussion of the emerging standard for the creation of these graphics.
