Custom Name Plate Holders? Can we do that?

name tags-nameplates-nametags-ribbons-lanyards-shipping
We often have customers calling in to ask us about our name plate holders. They are durable, and professional looking. They are really a great product! However, a lot of our customers don’t know that we can actually make wall mounts and desk holders in custom sizes!

It is important to remember that we actually have to make these from scratch, so it takes about 3-4 weeks to get these to you after your order.

Here are the main things we need to know if you would like a custom name plate holder.

1. What size would you like? (We do have limitations on how large they can be, give us a call if you need anything over 13-14 inches long.)

2. How wide would you like the slot to be? We can do the standard 16th of an inch or scale it down to an 8th of an inch.

3. Would you like holes drilled in the back? Some of our customers hang these with Velcro, or adhesive tape, and have no need for the drilled holes in the back.

4. What color would you like? We offer yellow gold, rose gold, silver, and black.

As soon as we have all of these details from you we can get a price quote for you to look over. As soon as we have your approval we will send the order down to the production department, and in 3 to 4 weeks you have your finished product! Does this sound like something that your office needs?

What are Lexan Sliders?

name tags-nameplates-nametags-ribbons-lanyards-shipping

Lexan Sliders are used to keep metal name plates from moving inside desk holders and wall mounts. They are automatically added free of charge when ordering metal plates and holders together. Unfortunately, they do not work with reusable name plates and desk holders because they are too thick to fit inside with the inclusion of a printed insert.

Lexan sliders are easy to use and we will include an instruction sheet with every order. Corners are rounded on all metal tags and plates for safety. With a holder you can hardly see that the corners are rounded.

Not only will the slider keep the plate from moving around in the holder but it also acts as a screen to protect your plate from scratches. Lexan sliders are there to enhance the quality of our metal name plates and their holders.

Have Fun with your Name Tags

When we redesign web pages, promotional materials or catalog products, our designers like to get creative and have some fun with the names on our name tags.

Sometimes they’ll see if they can trick someone into thinking a name is real, but the name is really just a play on words.

Here are a few they’ve done over the years:

Why Every Employee Should Have a Name Plate

metal-plastic-name plates

Name plates are one of the four resources we suggested for increasing brand awareness, but they are also a way to boost morale and confidence of your employees. Overall, custom name plates have multiple benefits and do much more than simply state a name and a job title.

Benefits of name plates:

Employee Integration: The first day on the job can be nerve racking. The newbie is coming into a foreign environment, not 100% what they’re getting themselves in to.  A good way to curb the anxiety of the new employee and make them more at home is to have a custom name plate ready and waiting at their desk. They will realize that you’ve taken the time to invest in them, and to make them feel like part of the company family.
Not only that, but if everyone in the office has a name plate, then the newbie will be able to focus on their new job duties, rather than learning the names and positions of every other employee in the company.

Increased Professionalism: If every employee has a uniformly designed name plate, it adds a fluency to the work environment. Because one name plate isn’t flashier than another, your employees will feel more like a family than competitors, and with the feeling of family comes loyalty.
On top of that, if clients or customers come into the office and see the name plates, they will notice the extra care your company takes to cultivate working relationships and professionalism.

Navigation: If displayed properly and efficiently, name plates can be a compass in your work environment. They can create a flow from department to department, so that when visitors or newcomers enter the office, they will have no problems finding where they need to be.
Invest in Your Employees = Invest in Your Customers: Name plates are a monetary and time investment in your employees, and furthermore, they’re an investment in brand new employees who haven’t even had a chance to prove themselves. Regardless, ordering name plates for your staff illustrates your willingness to put faith in the future of your employees and company, and that directly translates to your willingness to invest in your customers in clients.

What name plates should include:

Company Logo
Employee’s Name
Department/Job Title

Where to put them:

On the employee’s desk
On the door or wall leading into the employee’s office
On the wall of the employee’s cubicle


Font Focus

Name Tag, Inc. is excited to announce that it now offers 17 fonts versus the 10 it used to. These 17 fonts can be applied to our name tag and name plate products.

More and more of our customers have been requesting a longer list of fonts to choose from.

When asked how he thinks our customers will respond to the additional list of fonts, Dave Hardy, our design manager used only one word: positively.
