create a new you

Here’s how to create a new you with new and improved name tags and name plates.

You may have a name tag you have worn for years, so it’s time for an upgrade. Why consider a new name tag? First, name tags allow employees to display who they are and work for. Second, they break the ice when networking, so talking to others is even easier. Third, it gives customers a sense of security knowing they are working with professionals. Finally, it helps communicate that we are here for a reason: to help our customers with whatever they need.

Imagine wearing a name tag that you personalized yourself. Your new name tag could have the font and colors you choose to help you stand out. You can also wear a photo ID with a picture of you that you’re proud of.

PRO TIP: You can choose how you want to wear your name tag with our selection of fasteners.

We have reusable name tags to be reused for future use. In addition, we have display racks to display a conference’s worth of name tags in a neat and organized fashion. Display racks are essential for conference meetings so that everyone can find their name tag quickly and easily.

If your business has a logo, you can put it on one of our custom products. We will work with you to make sure you are happy with your order. Our experienced design department will devise concepts you can give input on and complete with total customer satisfaction.

It’s typical for employees to have their area of refuge, i.e., their desks. Employees decorate their desks to make their space more personalized and comfortable. The same applies to name plates. We have name plates for your desk that are fully customizable. We help liven up your old name tags and name plates for a personable look.

Name Plates are to Desks as Bows are to Gifts

Name plates can provide a person’s name, title and corporation. A personalized name plate shows that you are an industry professional who is proud of who you are. A name plate that includes job titles displays the employee’s purpose. A professional looking name plate would perfect the professional looking desk you’ve been needing. And, you won’t even have to wait for Christmas.

Like our name tags, our name plates come with several ways to customize them. They come in different materials, colors, fonts, font colors, logos and more. Name plates are neat because they can either sit on top of a desk or hang on a cubicle wall. We have several name plate holders, such as the classic holder. They come out with such high quality that just a glimpse is all you need to know that you are an industry professional.

Don’t forget the ribbons!

badge ribbon

Badge ribbons are a favorite among our customers as they are versatile and attractive. Like everything else we sell, badge ribbons are available in several materials, colors and fonts. They can be customized to how you want them. We have stock badge ribbons representing various positions for a great deal. Custom text badge ribbons assist you in marketing a company, advertising, or decorating name tags.

Your everyday name tag may be dull and outdated, so liven things up by upgrading your boring name tag with a brand new one. Customize your new name tag into your style. After you create your custom name tag, you can personalize a name plate and badge ribbons to create a new you. They would be the perfect combo for a new you this new year.

Upgrade Name Tags with Name Plates

Matching name tags and name plates for your office to upgrade your identification.

Your logo already looks excellent on name tags, so put it on a name plate that matches. It’s simple to upgrade your identification with multiple material colors and printing of your logo. You can literally choose the same material for both name tags and plates so that your office matches your employees. You can also play with complimentary colors to help your logo stand out even more. But, no matter how you decide to upgrade your identification, we have what you need.

Upgrade Photo IDs with Lanyards

Upgrade your photo ID with matching, branded lanyards.

These two products go together so well that it just makes sense to get lanyards with photo ID badges. The ability to print any insert for a badge holder is great, and pairing them with lanyards is even greater. No matter your profession, matching lanyards and photo ID badges are the perfect way to keep everyone identified. Not only does the photo identification help increase your security measures, but upgrading with a lanyard ensures instant access to those badges.

Upgrade Badge Ribbons with Badge Holders

Badge ribbons help you upgrade your identification when attached to badge holders and matching lanyards.

Even if you’re not planning an event, pairing badge holders with ribbons is a great way to upgrade your identification. Sometimes all you need to add to your brand is a brightly colored ribbon attached to your name tag.

Even though they are commonly used for title designations at conventions and conferences, badge ribbons are more versatile than you know. They are the perfect tool for advertising sales, promoting events and letting your clientele know about your business.

Add nearly any text and logos to Custom Imprinted Badge Ribbons that help you achieve your business goals. With these custom additions, you can meet all of your company branding and marketing resolutions. Your text can be slogans, logos and so much more!

Using Custom Ribbons to Upgrade Your Identification

Now that you have made your logo stand out on name tags, imagine what other custom ribbons can do for your brand. Use these branded ribbons for product packaging and even employee appreciation gifts. No matter you need, we have a ribbon to help.

Donations and Charity Work for Your Business

Whether your efforts are to encourage employees to be active in your community or your business wants to reach out to those in need, donations and charity work are a fantastic way to show you care. In every community, there are people in need. And, in these communities, businesses like yours can make a difference. Here are some reasons why YOU should be that difference.

Creating Community Understanding

Understanding the community concept teaches that you must do things to keep it healthy no matter the setting. These insights are supported and managed by people feeling that they belong somewhere. And this comes with accepting each other and the diversity of those around you. This community understanding makes us responsible for those around us. In turn, this community responsibility not only aids those in need, but it assists everyone influenced by any actions in that community.

Donations and charity work are only a couple of ways that make us more responsible in our community. And, building trust in our community is not only a requirement but also the best way to maintain any community. This is why we, as a company, are always looking to help out in our neighborhood and surrounding areas. By reaching into our community and participating in networking opportunities for organizations, we can see how much our brand resonates with others. We also find how our brand reflects in our community.

Here are a couple of examples of our recent donations!

Cranedale Designs

Cranedale Designs tiny houses community donor name tags board.

We sent two types of plastic, engraved name tags. One was a small name tag with either a first and last name or a company name. The other type were circle custom shapes with the amount donors had given to the project. Each name tag type was needed in four colors.

Carol King, Owner of Cranedale Designs, said, “The donor board name tags represent everyone who designed, supplied building material and helped to build the tiny houses in a settlement in my town. My son is on the board of the tiny house community. He had a fundraiser, and one of the people who work for the tiny house community said they needed a donor board to honor those who took the time to make the little community possible. I am an artist, and I said I would love to do that as a contribution to the community.”

“The inspiration, of course, was that it was a tiny house community,” King explained of the exhibit. I thought it would be fun if each donor had their own little tiny house. I struggled to find a way to put the names on the little houses. There are 208 names, and stamping them into the clay seemed like a huge amount of work. It was already a lot of work to make each little house. I (decided I) needed four distinctive colors to represent the levels of donation. (Coller Industries) had the best looking variations in color.”

Big Dog Ranch Rescue

Big Dog Ranch Rescue working with the community in donations and charity work.

This remarkable pet rescue also received a donation of plastic, engraved name tags. They went all out with upgrades like rounded corners and beveled edges, as well as the deluxe magnets (our most popular fastener)! These tags are worn by adopters, visitors, donors and other staff members so that they are quickly identified, and the tags create a welcoming environment.

Christopher Kraus, Chief Executive Officer of Big Dog Ranch Rescue, said, “Our organization’s mission is to save 5,000 dogs every year, to heal and place them with loving families, and to educate people about the proper care for dogs and the importance of spaying and neutering. We will end dog homelessness through education, sterilization and legislation.”

“Big Dog Ranch Rescue has now rescued more than 37,000 dogs and united countless families with their new forever friends. We also believe in giving back to our community through education and support. From a new Veteran Service Dog Program to visits to nursing homes, from teaching the importance of spay neutering to the next generation to helping seniors care for their pets when they are unable, Big Dog Ranch Rescue is here for our neighbors. Dog rescue is a 24/7 calling. We won’t rest until every dog has a loving family, and we end dog homelessness forever.”

Better Your Brand with Donations and Charity Work

Building a brand is something every business regularly focuses on. From excellent customer service to high-quality products, brand reputation is everything you do to retain customers. This reputation directly impacts your customer’s behavior toward your company. Making sure that you better your brand will help you stay in business. By producing high-quality interactions with clients and customers, you are building your brand reputation.

Donations and charity work are a great way to show your customers how much you care about their needs. Giving something away is about adding value to your community, no matter if it is time or money. The joy we get from giving our products to those in need helps us to better our brand by investing in our community. By building this reputation, we continue to help those around us and better our brand.

New Year, New You (and New Name Tags)

Exciting things are happening in the world of name tags. We anticipate new products and many updated ways to use our products this year. We think that the best part of starting a new year is updating your company with new name tags!

New name tags are sure to be the best purchase you will make this year. And we’re sure your employees, volunteers and other staff will thank you. So, spice up your look with brand new identification!

Are you in need of new name tags?

Whether your name tags are just a couple of years old or are in desperate need of an upgrade, we have just what you are looking for. Our high-quality products are perfect for every identification need. Choose from engraved names and logos to bright, colorful printing (UV and full color).

Finding the Right Type of Logos

With several options available, your logo will never look better! Choose from simple engraving to our full color options. No matter what your logo looks like, it will look amazing on a metal or plastic name tag. Even if your logo has multiple colors (or white), we have a solution for you.

What makes a good name tag logo?

Frequently, a logo designed for use on the internet or printed media doesn’t come off as well when you try to fit it onto your name tag. Assuming you made the decision to have a logo on your name tags, here are a few things to consider.

  • Keep the size of the tag in mind. In most cases, the logo will be much smaller, and little details won’t be as visible anymore.
  • Remember that you may have to be flexible on the colors associated with your logo.
  • When adding names and logos, remember that the smaller your logo, the larger it’s presence can be.
  • Try to limit the amount of detail in your logo. Smaller details are not visible from a distance or on a smaller name tag. You only need enough detail to make the logo recognizable.
  • Even if your logo is mostly used for the internet or printed media, you should plan and have a single color version created. This is primarily used for our engraved tags.
  • Finally, consider a custom shaped tag. Your name tag might cut into a shape that follows your logo. Then you can add names and titles.

Why You Should KISS Your Name Tags

From conference to convention and every event in between, when it comes to your name tags, you should always KISS them. In other words, keep it short and simple. Simplicity is necessary to make your name tags work for you. And, avoid unnecessary complexity.

Professional tools such as name tags are essential in marketing and communication. They provide not only personal identity but corporate branding as well. Employees who wear name tags offer a sense of customer service and responsibility for that business. And, name tags are often the hardest working element to a person’s uniform in meetings, at conventions or during any event.

Here’s how you can and should KISS your name tags.

The KISS Principle

KISS keep it short and simple in designing name tags

KISS, an acronym for “keep it simple, stupid” or “keep it stupid simple,” is a design principle noted by the U.S. Navy in 1960. The KISS principle states that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated. The phrase has been associated with aircraft engineer Kelly Johnson. The term “KISS principle” was in popular use by 1970. Variations on the phrase include: “Keep it simple, silly,” “keep it short and simple,” “keep it simple and straightforward,” “keep it small and simple” or “keep it stupid simple.”

Whether you’re adding names and titles or logos and names, you should always remember the KISS Principle. Make sure your text is concise and to the point. Avoid longer titles unless necessary, and use an appropriate logo for your brand.

Remember that you should use the KISS Principle on your name tags as it is the most important thing you can do for them.

Yes, you should remember your branding by adding a logo to all of the name tags in your office. Or when creating name tags for a conference, add different company logos to each company’s name tags. Everyone will appreciate their branded name tags, and it also helps with continued recognition for each business.

For a name tag to be the most effective, there are guidelines to consider. The first rule is to keep yours simple. Some people treat them like business cards or resumes, but personal identification should be straightforward and concise. Name tags should only include the bare minimum information necessary to identify the person wearing it. In commercial and retail settings, that means the person’s first name, unless there is more than one employee with the same first name. With such cases, adding a last name helps with identification.

So, for branding to work on your name tags, you need only to include what is necessary. Whether you are gathering information for a convention or making new name tags for your office, only include the bare minimum. 

According to Scott Ginsberg, the Name Tag Guy:

“How many times has someone rudely squinted at your chest desperately trying to make out those tiny letters? This is self defeating, embarrassing and actually works to decrease your approachability. Not to mention it makes the other person feel ridiculous! So, much like a retail price tag, your name tag must be readable from ten feet away — both the font and the name tag itself.

“According to a name tag survey done by David Alder of Biz Bash, 50% of a group of meeting planners claimed that ‘illegible font size of name tags was a major problem.’ And, consider the 75 million baby boomers that have reached, or will reach their bifocal days, this is a top priority. The recommended font size is 24 point – hopefully bigger if possible. Also, be certain to avoid cursive, script or other fancy letters.”

KISS keep it short and simple in designing name tags

So, always remember to KISS (keep it short and simple) your name tags, and they will do the work for you. No matter what situation you are in, these KISSed tags are sure to get the job done.
