Q&A: Your Name Tag Investment

For our third and final installment of this question and answer blog series (the links to the first two are at the bottom), we wanted to focus on how you can get the most out of your name tag investment. While the questions here may not be as common as some of the others we have answered in the past couple of weeks, we feel that they are just as important.

ROI: Return on Investment

Return on Investment for your name tags

Let’s first answer this, what is ROI? Return on Investment (ROI) is a performance measure used to evaluate the efficiency of an investment or compare the efficiency of a number of different investments. ROI tries to directly measure the amount of return on a particular investment, relative to the investment’s cost.

Now, what does that have to do with your name tags? Well, shouldn’t you be getting a good return on your name tag investment? We think so, and that is precisely why we only offer the highest quality of products. Let us explain what we mean!

Question: Why should I use a name tag?

Answer: Because they are COOL! That and the fact that name tags can improve your business in so many ways.

From employee and visitor identification to showing off your company logo and branding, name tags will make your business complete. By utilizing name tags into your company’s culture, customers will relate better to your employees. Name badges eliminate any barrier between the customer and employees. Even name plates provide identification to offices and retail establishments. So, try adding these to your business today. 

Question: Do I want a logo or the name as the focus on my name tags?

Answer: To determine that, you will want to consider what you will be the primary use of the tag.

Two engraved logo name tags

For example, in a retail setting, your customer will already know which store they have come to. When wearing a name tag there, the name and title should be the main focus. You can even consider different color selections to distinguish different job roles. Use one for managers, one for trainees and another color for permanent staff to identify those roles quickly.

On the other hand, if you are using these name badges for a trade show or outside sales, your logo should be the tag’s focal point. Make sure to select the proper printing process to make your logo stand out to draw people in. After all, you want to make people remember who you are.

Q: If I don’t know how to design my name tag, can you design it for me?

Answer: We have several options available to aid you in your product design.

If you don’t know exactly how you want your name tags to look, we have a design team here to assist you. We also have many products with available templates to help you get the look you need for your business. We always send a digital proof on all of our custom products for you to approve before your name tags are put into production. 

Don’t worry about making sure that your name tag looks great; we do that for you! That way, you can focus on other things that make your business retain your professionalism. 

Question: How are my custom products made?

Answer: We make each product you order from a carefully designed proof approved by you before production starts.

Question & Answer: How to Use Identification

We often receive the same questions from multiple customers. Sometimes, these questions are easy to answer, but sometimes they require a bit more clarification. Have you ever had a question about name tags or other identification products? We are taking some time to answer some frequently asked questions that our customer service team repeatedly gets. And we will expand on each question so that you, too, will understand our processes. 

Find any answer to any question about name tags, personalized ribbons and more.

Question: Which name tag size should I order?

Answer: The size of your name tags depends on how much information you want on them.

For a simple 1 or 2 line tag with only text (name and professional title), we typically recommend a 1 x 3 inch tag. However, if you are working with visually impaired people, you may want something much larger, so the text size can be increased.

If you are ordering tags with your company or brand logo, you will want to consider where you want the logo on your tag, and if it will fit there. For example, if you have a horizontally long logo, we don’t recommend putting it to the left of the tag because there won’t be as much room for your text. The best option would be to center it above the text and go with a taller tag, such as a 1.5 x 3 inches. If you have a more circular or square logo, they typically look best to the left of the text, and you wouldn’t need as tall of a tag.

Question: Most of your products require a list of names. How do I submit this list?

Answer: We have two options for submitting a name list for your customized order.

The first would be to upload them while you are on the order page. You can type them right into the provided form or upload an existing file. Our system will ask you to review everything to ensure that you entered the correct spelling and punctuation. You do want to make sure you submit the list in the case you would like on the product (upper and lower; e.g., Jane O’Connor).

You can also email your list after you place your order to nametag@nametag.com. Once your order has been placed, you will receive an order number that needs to be referenced in your email’s subject line. This email goes to the customer service representative who is in charge of your order, and they will make sure that it is usable. If there are any issues, they will contact you.

Question: What is the best way to print names for reusable name tags such as Mighty Badges?

Answer: We have multiple ways you can format your printable inserts for your reusable name badges.

The recommended way would be to use the NamePrint Graphics software. This software lets you add text and graphics to inserts using your printer.

The other option we have for your printed inserts is a small collection of predetermined templates. We do not have these for every reusable product, so check the bottom of the product order pages for available templates. 

Question: How can I order more of the same name tags I already have?

Answer: We have an online reorder program to make ordering more name tags easier.

The first thing you need to understand is what is a reorder? A reorder is when you need to order more of the same product you already have in use, but require different names. Lucky for you, our reordering system is easy to use and quick to understand.

All of your design info is kept on file under your customer number. Once you place your first order with Coller Industries, you receive a customer number. This number allows us (and you) to quickly and easily locate your information and previous orders. To place a reorder for your name tags, visit https://www.nametag.com/reorders/ or go to our home page (www.nametag.com) and select the “Reorder” link at the top of the page. Once there, you need to enter your customer number and select the layout you need to order. After making that selection, you only need to submit the new name list (text) for the new order.
