Creating plaques

I have several different levels of membership for a forum of mine. Some of these will be paid members. I wish to somehow highlight the fact they have paid and contributed to the running of the forum. Therefore, I decided some type of badge, plaque or award graphic would be really good to put under their name.

Any suggestions on simple ones I could create? I have Fireworks to create them with.



This forum itself is a great example of what you seek.

Look at the badges, above /bellow the avatar of staff members,like myself, for an example.

Ah yes, I didn’t notice that. Thanks!
