How to customize length, height and width of Google+ badges?

There are 2 types of badges:

1. Static badge
2. Custom badge

The static badges are just images with hyperlink to your Google+ Page. Google gives 3 different sizes of badges, but you are free to create your own. You can create a badge using any drawing tools at the width, height and length of your choice. All that matters is the rel=publisher tag used with your hyperlink.

In case of custom badges, you cannot create your own badges. Google gives you some script and it creates the badge for you.

As of now, the options are limited. You can
create the custom Google+ badges in 2 sizes:

1. Standard badge
2. Small badge

Customize height, width and length of Google+ Badge
Both Standard Google+ badge and Small Google+ badge comes in the same width. But the Small one is about half the size of the standard one. As of now, there are no options to adjust the dimensions of the badge according to the style of the website.

A lot of people are asking the option to customize the size (custom length, height and width). It is expected that in the near future, Google will give the flexibility to customize the size of the badge to fit the style of the websites.
