Staff name tags…where do you start?

staff name tags

OK so the boss tells you “We need staff name tags – and we needed them yesterday!” What do you do? Where do you start? What type do you need? What do they cost? How fast can I receive them? Lots of questions and not many answers – so what do you do?

Business name tags

Well you could go to your print shop or big box office supply store…good luck there. No, those are fine places to go if you want to overpay, wait for weeks for your badges, and deal with someone who knows absolutely nothing about name tags. If you needed printing or office supplies you would you go to a person that makes name tags?  So the first place is to find someone who makes professional name tags – like The professionals at know all the questions that should be asked in order to make sure you receive the right product for your application.

Custom Staff  Name Tags

Next, what style of name tag do you need? Style choice depends on the environment the name tag will be used. If the tags are for lawyers, executives, professional people the generally accepted name tag is the metal name tag or an executive name tag. This type tag features a more upscale appearance with the brushed metal finish. For the medical profession most clients tend to go with the engraved plastic name tags. These tags provide years of wear and feature a more muted appearance that blends nicely with scrubs or office attire. The name tags in color tend to be for general businesses or clubs and organizations. And for those companies with a high turnover in employees a reusable name tag is just the ticket.


The last item to concern yourself with is the backing. For most name tags the magnetic backing is the only choice. This allows the wearer to attach the badge without punching a hole in their garment. For instances where that is not a problem a standard pin backing is fine.


So call a name tag professional when you need name tags and badges, you will be glad you did.

Magnetic name tags save the world!

Not really, sorry just getting your attention. However magnetic name tags are a fantastic product, happier now?

For years and years people have been destroying nice looking clothes by piercing with a stick pin when they attach their name tags. STOP IT! You no longer have to suffer this process.

A magnetic name tag works like this; the name tag has a steel bar that is affixed to the badge itself. There is a second part that has three little magnets affixed to separate metal bar. You simply place the magnetic part behind your clothes and inline with the metal bar on your name tag that is on the outside of your clothes, and the badge holds securely  through your clothing. The magnets are quite strong and will hold through most suite jackets, sweaters and a wide variety of shirts, all without punching a single hole in your clothing. Doesn’t that sound more civilized than skewering your clothing every time you want to wear your name tag?

Any type badge we offer comes with the pin backing standard but you may elect to purchase your badge with a magnetic backing. The additional fee is minimal and well worth the money spent.

The only problem we have ever experienced with this type badge is the magnet is too strong and people have a difficult time separating the two pieces. This can easily be remedied by simply pushing the magnet off the edge of the badge which breaks the magnetic field and the two pieces separate quite easily.

So step into the 21st century and the next time you order name tags order magnetic backings. Pin backed name tags are like dial up internet access – not bad when it was all we had but why not go with the new and improved.
