These definitions will provide the difference between stock items and custom items. And what you need to know about ordering each kind.
Most of our name tags come with two options. Custom and Stock. Sometimes, trying to figure out what you need can be a struggle.
First things first, let’s cover what “stock” means. “Stock” refers to an item that is already made or has distinct parts that do not require any added printing or engraving. These items will ship immediately for your use. Stock items are available as Mighty Badges, Speedy Badges and any other reusable products. These “stock” items are ideal for high-turnover companies such as retail stores or call centers. They are also perfect for volunteers. Use each of these products over and over as they have interchangeable pieces.
This term may be a bit confusing to some our customers. These “pre-defined” items consist of name tags or name plates that follow a specific, already established design. We call them “Classic Name Tags” and “Classic Name Plates.” And, they are custom in nature. Customize them by selecting the size, the number of lines, a material color and a fastener or holder. We offer several professional name tag and name plate templates to personalize for your needs. These templates do not allow the addition of a logo.
“Custom” items are made specifically for one customer as per their order. Order all of our name tags and name plates as custom products. This means that you can design your product, whether it be a name tag or name plate, to meet your needs. Design them with names, titles and logos or sometimes full color graphics.
Here at Name Tag, Inc., we pride ourselves on having exact products for which our customers are looking. And, as part of this definitions series, we want to make sure that you understand what you’re getting. Having stock items means that you, as our loyal customers, get what you need and quickly. And by ordering those custom items, it means that you get exactly what you need, no matter what. If we don’t seem to have what you’re looking for, please give us a call, and we’ll find something that works!
