Increasing Business Success Through Name Tags

As a business owner, are you always looking for ways to improve your company? Remember that even small things, like name tags, can make a big difference. Yes, they might seem small to most people, but name tags can get big things done for your business. As you start to plan for your next quarterly profit, keep in mind how identification can be beneficial for your company. Name tags can help with increasing business success.

Three styles of name tags that show how logos look when printed or engraved differently which helps when increasing business success.

Name tags help customers feel welcome

Acting as icebreakers, name tags help employees provide excellent customer service. They encourage communication between your customers and employees. After all, a name tag is essentially an unspoken introduction. When employees introduce themselves by wearing a name tag, customers feel welcome in your office or store. Name tags also permit customers to approach employees with a question or problem. As customers interact with your employees, your team gains valuable insight into what customers need and how to help them.

Sometimes, customers come into a store, restaurant or other place of business and are met with such friendly and helpful workers that they need an employee’s name to pass on compliments. When staff wears name tags, it is easy for anyone to know their names and give this praise. Name tags also provide a friendly invitation to say hello. All of this puts customers more at ease, which is great for business.

Increasing business success by keeping track of things

It is important to know who the employees are in larger businesses, like corporations or hospitals. Name tags help by providing job titles quickly. So, if everyone is wearing a name tag, you’re working on increasing business success through customer retention.

Name tags also make it easier when a business needs to resolve problems at work. When customers know an employee’s name, they feel more comfortable asking questions to get help when they need it. This means that things get done quicker and more efficiently. Name tags are one way to help establish good communication, and good communication is great for increasing business success.

Finding the right name tags

Name tags are like a mini billboard for your company. When everyone wears name tags with the same logo and colors, it creates a strong image for the business. From reusable to all the upgrades, here are some products to help you find the name tags and badges that best suit your company’s needs.

Brand vs. Logo (and why magnets are cool)

Brand = a type of product manufactured by a particular company under a particular name.

A company’s brand is what they are, what they want to be, and what they aim to become. It can be a promise of quality, trust or service. A brand is what makes a company or organization truly unique.

Logo = a symbol or other design adopted by an organization to identify its products, uniform, vehicles, etc.

Your logo represents you, your company, your brand and your overall commitment to your clients and customers. And creating consistency by adding your logo to everything you personalize (from name tags to corporate gifts) lets people know you’re proud of what you stand for.

Multiple personalized name tags all with deluxe magnets for fasteners.

Adding a logo to any name tag is an excellent way to maximize branding for your company. Choose from either metal or plastic and customize it to match your work environment and brand. Logos are engraved or printed depending on the style and material you choose. P.S. Don’t forget the magnets!

For many professions, appearance is a crucial factor in this quality. Maintaining your commitment to quality is easy with a uniform and the proper name tag. So whether you choose a daily business attire like a suit and tie or a matching polo shirt for each of your employees, don’t forget that name tag.

From branding to color matching, name tags, like uniforms, help to symbolize your quality. Creating a positive influence with your brand means guaranteeing that all of your business’s services and products are consistent. Employees and customers know when that consistency is not present. Choose name tags that reflect your brand’s commitment to quality. Once accomplishing this, showing that you commit to quality is easy.

5 Design Principles for Logo Usage

Logo Size – A logo’s final size makes a difference. The more detail a logo has, the more difficult it becomes to see at smaller sizes, so a logo that looks great on a name plate may not work as well on a name tag.

Color – Carefully think about the color of your logo and the color of the name tag. If your logo has bright colors, it will not make as much of a statement on an engraved two color tag, but it will look stunning as a UV color printed on plastic or metal or even as a full color plastic tag.

Contrast – No matter where you have your logo, you want to make sure it is highly visible. So, consider the contrast between colors as you choose materials and printing/engraving style. For example, as shown below, pastels on silver can wash out, and on the name plate and tag above, the blues in the logo blend with the chosen material.

Logo Orientation – The shape and orientation of your logo make a difference in where to place it on your product. The horizontal logo on this example works well when placed at the top of the name tag. However, when placed on the right side, it shrinks to a size that isn’t visible. A good rule is that a horizontal logo is best on the top or bottom of your tag design, while a vertical logo is best on the right or left.

Product – Artwork requirements for logos vary by product. For example, a single color vector file is required for some products, while a high quality bitmap or multicolor vector file is required for full color products. Individual order pages will let you know which requirements are required for each product.

Which Name Tag Fastener is Right for You?

You’ve chosen which name tag you want, designed your logo to advertise your brand and made a list of the names you need printed on them. There is still one crucial part of the name tag equation left: choosing a fastener. It isn’t a decision to take lightly, as different occasions and environments call for specific fasteners. Work attire, uniforms and environment need to be taken into consideration. The fastener you choose will directly impact the appearance and wearability of the name tag, so choose carefully!

Fasteners

Even the fastener on a name tag helps reflect your company’s standards. Each fastener choice we carry only aids in the presentation of your chosen name tags by keeping them fixed firmly to uniforms and other employee attire. Our Deluxe Magnetic Fasteners hold through thick material and multiple layers of clothing, making them our most popular choice. Everything we offer not only is permanently attached to each name tag, but it will help your high quality image stand out from your competition.

Why are magnets trendy?

Our most popular fastener choice is the deluxe magnetic fastener.

This fastener consists of two parts: a metal plate with indentations, which holds the magnet in place and adheres to the back of most name tags, and a plastic bar that has two strong magnets, which holds in place through multiple layers of clothing.

There are many types of fasteners to go with your name tag. These include deluxe magnets, pins, swivel bulldog clips, pocket clips and more. Deluxe magnets have become more popular for name tags because they do not puncture clothing with pins. Name tags can also be worn around the neck using a lanyard.

Providing high quality name tags at networking events is a minor detail that makes a big difference. They are worth the extra money. When we host networking events for hospitality industry professionals, we invest in high quality name tags that stick to clothing using a magnet instead of those with a pin. We’ve learned that people don’t always want to put a pin through their clothes and that using high quality magnetic name tags elevates the perceived quality of the event.

The final thing to cover is the fastener choice. Most name tags come with multiple options, but be careful with these. Don’t order a lanyard to go with an adhesive name badge! It just wouldn’t work. Be smart about the choice. While magnetic fasteners are popular, pins or clips might be more appropriate for your situation. Always think of how and where you are wearing the name tag before making the final selection on a fastener.

3 Sets of Products That Work Better Together

From the simplest of pairs to the most personalized sets, here’s a list of all of our products that work better when paired together.

Badge Holders & Lanyards

Let’s get started with the most basic and well-known personalized product: badge holders. They are so underrated, and we think that’s a shame. Badge holders are great for so many things. From identification needs at conventions to at-home DIY projects, these unique products are downright perfect.

And, with printable inserts, badge holders are products that are only limited by your imagination, and maybe your printer. Add graphics, logos and any text you need for any event or craft. They come in several sizes and either a horizontal or vertical orientation. From lightweight to heavy duty, these vinyl badges are perfect for any need.

Don’t limit a badge holder to an event staple at your next conference, convention or trade show. They are so versatile that they will last through any meeting. And, they are an excellent benefit for schools to use as visitor passes. Retail environments also get significant reuse from these identification products when using them for seasonal employees.

Now, let’s pair these badge holders with the power of a lanyard!

Whether it’s a chain or full-color printed ribbon, lanyards have a power all to themselves. They are perfect for branding for any company or event. Keep essential items close at hand with a lanyard. And, you can find these tools anywhere you find badge holders. After all, badge holders come with a slot at the top specifically designed to go hand-in-hand with a lanyard.

And, with the variety of available lanyard styles, materials and colors, they provide an excellent source of advertising. Design your lanyards with logos, graphics and text to make them stand out. Even more important, make sure that your design flows with your badge holders. When used together, these two identification products provide multiple functions for a variety of events and situations.

Badge Holders & Badge Ribbons

badge holders and badge ribbons are two identification products that pair well together

We’re beginning to sense a theme here. Badge holders are making another appearance.

Badge holders and badge ribbons, it’s all in the name! They really do go hand-in-hand with each other. But, this time they are being paired with badge ribbons. These ribbon products are a fantastic tool at any conference. They help identify different participants and vendors. Badge ribbons are available with stock or custom titles so no one will be left out.

Badge ribbons are often used to promote brand recognition, events, sales and to market services or products. Add a ribbon to the bottom of a badge holder to make someone stand out in a crowd. Or use them for DIYs and home crafts. But, no matter what you use them for, remember to grab a badge holder to go with them.

Name Tags & Name Plates

Yes, you may not think that these two identification products work better together, but we beg to differ.

pair a name tag and a name plate together and make all of your identification products work well together with matching colors and logos

No matter how big your company is, using your brand is what makes you stand out. Your logo represents not only you and your company but also your brand and overall commitment to your clients and customers. And, in the name tag world, using your logo consistently on all personal identification products helps to define and identify you and your company.

From colors to logos, consistency matters. So, finding the right consistency with logos, colors and fonts helps to solidify your message. By defining what your brand is up front, you help establish your company as an industry leader. Find a way to keep your logo and text the same on all name tags and name plates. A company who ensures that their brand is well developed will retain and obtain connections with their clients and customers.

So, lesson learned. Never underestimate the power of combined identification products. Let them work for you, and your job will be even easier.
