A Conversation With A Name Badge

Have you ever talked with an inanimate object? Well, today, we’re sharing a recent conversation we had with a name badge!

colors, text and logos are all key features of a name badgeWe sat down over the long, holiday weekend with a Name Badge and asked several questions about how a name badge works and why they think their job is so important. Here are the top three questions from that interview.

Question 1: Describe Your Job

Reporter: I would like to start with a simple question, Name Badge. Please explain your job and what it is that you do on a daily basis.

Name Badge: Whoa! Slow down there! That’s a super detailed question, and it will take more than just a few minutes to answer. Are you sure you want to start with that one?

Reporter: Yes, I am sure.

You see, the basic concept of my job is to let people know my name. But, here’s where it gets complicated. My name changes. My design changes. Sometimes I have color and sometimes I’m plain or even blank.

Reporter: That is a lot to take in, Name Badge. But I think you’re deviating from the question. What is your job?

Name Badge: First off, call me NB, it’s easier. In a nutshell, my job is to tell others who I am.

Reporter: That doesn’t sound too hard, NB. So, why do you think it’s so complicated?

NB: My job is complicated because of the many different ways people customize and use me.

Question 2: What Customizations Are Available?

NB: As I mentioned before, my design changes. Some people use their first name. Others use first and last names, while still others add titles, company names and sometimes even logos. And, I come in many different colors. I’m a chameleon that way. Oh, and sometimes people write on me.

Reporter: So, basically what you are telling me is that you have many faces? If that is the case, how do people know how to use you?

NB: Yes, I do have many faces. And sometimes that makes it a bit harder to use me. Although, to most people, using me is a natural thing; especially when those people work in stores or offices with tons of employees. Most know that I wear best on the right side of their shirt, but sometimes people put me in their pockets or place me where I’m hard to read. I do my job best when worn correctly.

Question 3: Finding Your Best Feature

Reporter: So, NB, if you’re appropriately worn and used correctly, what is your best feature?

NB: You like asking loaded questions, don’t you?

Reporter: What do you mean?

use a name badge to show your name, your company's name and your logoNB: Well, my best feature is the one the consumer likes the most. So, if they worked hard on their company’s branding, the logo would be my best feature. But, if the person wearing me needs others to know that they are a volunteer, then my title would be my best feature. Does that make sense?

Reporter: Yes, I suppose it does. So, your best feature is what others need it to be?

NB: Exactly!

Reporter: Wow! I’ve learned a lot from you today, NB. Thanks. I should probably be wearing a name badge, too!

Our most recent contribution goes to a wonderful corporation who is helping their community through acupuncture.

By wearing a name tag, you let the world know who you are.

Name tags are used by customer service companies so that patrons can identify employees quickly. Professional organizations where employees do not wear uniforms may also wear nametags as a way of distinguishing themselves.

Show Pride In Your Name

engraved plastic name tags help identify you to the worldThis name can represent you, your company or your goal or purpose. But any way you use it, you are showing how much pride you have in this name or purpose by wearing a nametag. While the presentation is simple, the message goes way beyond that. You let others know that you’re serious about your cause. And you help those around you know who you are what you’re all about.

Name tags are a friendly greeting and more importantly, a direct line from you to your end consumer or goal; such a simple and yet efficient idea. Wear it around your neck or on your shirt, maybe put it on your desk as a nameplate. A nametag identifies who you are and what your presentation or purpose is.

What’s In A Name Tag?

By wearing a nametag, you become the face of your purpose, and you are representing that to everyone around you. In many ways, this benefits both you and your goal so that the people around you can put a face with a name. We have all heard that “a picture is worth a thousand words;” tell that story simply and quickly with your smile and a nametag. Wear your nametag proudly and let it serve its purpose!

Keep your name tag simple, but remember branding!

use a UV color logo to brand your name tagsLeave your mark by adding a logo to all of the nametags in your office. Or, when creating nametags for a conference, add different company logos to each group’s nametags. Each company will appreciate this branding, and it also helps with continued recognition for each brand.

 

So, whether it is at a convention, at your workplace, or a simple neighborhood party, wear your nametag proudly and let it serve its purpose!
