Why Should You Invest in Name Badges in the First Place?

1. People enjoy hearing their name

According to psychology, a person’s name is subconsciously the most important word to them. There is nothing better than the feeling that you made a good impression when someone remembers your name and says it aloud.

2. You won’t ever have to forget anyone’s name again

 Nobody enjoys forgetting names. It’s embarrassing, and it makes the person whose name you forgot feel insignificant. Name badges are a fantastic way to avoid this social no-no. 

3. It makes your employees feel important (because they are!)

Name badges make employees feel like they are a part of the company they work for. We all enjoy feeling like part of a community or a team. It gives your business cohesiveness when name badges are in the mix.

4. Guests can quickly identify your employees

With name badges, guests of your business can quickly identify employees, if needed. This is helpful if they want to notify a manager of excellent customer service 

5. It adds security

Photo identification name badges are especially important when there are serious security matters involved at a company. You want to feel safe at your business. 

6. Name badges help with branding

Name badges are a great way to establish a brand or a business. Add your company’s logo to all of your name badges, and people will be sure to remember you. 

If you don’t know what type of name badge to go for, these are some of the kinds of name badges we offer here at Quick Badge and Sign Inc and the benefits of each. 

The Magnetic Name Badge

The magnetic name badge attaches to any type of clothing without damaging the fabric.

Magnetic name badges are designed to be mobile, which makes this an excellent option for service industries, such as restaurants or hotels. Magnetic name badges are also a good idea for special occasions, events, networking functions, or any time that people have to be mobile and on their feet. A magnetic holder can make a good addition to any name badge. 

The Metal Name Badge

Our metal name badges are of the highest quality. They are a lot more durable than a sticker name badge, or any other type of fabric. The metal name badge option is perfect for hotels and restaurants because it gives a polished look to any uniform. They look a lot more professional than a sticker name tag. However, be careful with the type of metal you decide on purchasing. Some metals can bend, break, or scratch easily. 

Each metal badge is frosted, die-cut, and etched. They are finished with a glossy edge to make them stand out. We insist on jeweler-quality .040 Solid Brass and Solid Nickel. Lower quality .020 products tend to bend or warp over time. Other companies use gold or silver “coated” cast metal then paste a plastic cover plate on the face of the badge. Our Solid Brass and Nickel tags are made to last and make an impression.

Framed Name Badges

If you want to add some sophistication and style to your name badges, consider investing in a framed name badge. A framed name badge gives any badge the class it deserves. Framed name badges are also a fantastic option for when you want your employees to look their best. When you order from us, you also have the option to design your name badge first and add a frame later. 

Dome Name Badges

For some extra protection, consider a dome name badge. The dome name badge gives any badge some additional coverage and scratch resistance, offering a more polished look. Our dome name tags are available in Aluminum. Clear dome cover badges are available in gold, silver, and white.

Photo Identification Badges

Give your name badges a little extra security with photo identification. Photo ID badges are perfect for high-security jobs, buildings, and events. 

Visitor Badges and Visitor Identification

Visitor badges are an excellent way for people to get to know a company’s guests. Whether it’s for a quick meeting or someone visiting for the day, people like to have their names heard in any setting. Never forget your visitor’s names again with a visitor name badge!

Plastic Name Badges

If you are going for a more economic option, consider plastic name badges. Plastic name badges used to be a more casual business option, but they’ve slowly made their way into the corporate world. Our plastic name badges are easy to clean and replace if needed. Plastic Name Badges and Plastic Name Tags contribute to corporate branding by adding the business logo to every employee.

Getting Name Tags and Badges for New Staff

posted in: Name badges, Name Tags

We’ve written before about how useful badges and name tags are in many industries – managers know this intuitively because they’ve been in charge of getting people on-site and getting them ready to work. It’s no small job, and outfitting new employees is part of the task.

Being able to outfit someone with an identifying name tag or badge is a key part of that logistical process of on-boarding in retail, in healthcare, and in many other types of businesses. Often, it’s a flurry of activity where managers are looking to make sure everyone has their uniform, name tag and other gear to start helping out immediately.

That’s why we’ve built a system that offers 48-hour service, with tracking information to your door. We know that time is money when it comes to getting people through the on-boarding process – doing the paperwork, filling out the tax and payroll forms, and getting all necessary gear on-site to make sure they’re ready for day one. Delays are productivity killers, and in some cases, jobs have been lost over this kind of thing. So having verifiable vendor service is a safeguard that is worth something.

Durable Badges and Tags

We have a variety of framed and dome-covered tags that will last a long time under pressure. Your employees are going to be often working in some tough conditions – in hot kitchens, in busy high-traffic areas and elsewhere, where it’s important to have uniforms and accessories that don’t fall apart.

We have all of this in stock, and eligible for that quick turnaround, again, to help managers make sure they have everything covered for an important day or shift.

Fasteners and Connecting Pieces

Another major issue occurs when managers keep hearing people talking about their name tags or plates falling off. This can actually be a significant problem, because customers or others are expecting to be able to identify staff, and trying to rig up connecting pieces takes away from the employee’s focus on core work. 

We have velcro designs and pin-style holders. We have laminate enclosures and more to make sure that these badges and name tags stay where they are placed, to identify everyone appropriately and help keep operations humming along smoothly.

Take a look at our entire catalog of personalized options, and ask about any potential deals, as well as our guaranteed quick service delivery, because our products are most valuable to you when they arrive on time! We aim to help our clients to staff up and ramp up for scaling growth the right way.

The Importance of Name Badges at Events

posted in: Name Tags

When networking plays a key role in your daily agenda, name badges are a vital part of your attire. Whether it’s for entrance to a session or to see the company you represent, the first place someone looks is at your name badge. How many times have you met someone at an event, only to forget their name minutes later? Name badges provide a quick on-the-spot, at-a-glance name recall, making it easy to remember someone’s name and make acquaintances easily.

Name Badge Functions at Events

When attending events, there’s not always time for formal introductions. Name badges and a good quality lanyard are essential for fast introduction, making acquaintances easily, and name recalling. In today’s society, name badges also have an augmented function which the info they carried could be stored or exchanged by means of mobile apps. In this case, only a QR code or a barcode is enough to exchange necessary information. This recent technology also allows conference organizers or exhibitors to analyze participant behavior and their trafficking easily.

Information to Include on a Name Badge

At Quick Badge & Sign Inc., we offer a variety of badge styles for a unique look. However, there is some common information that should always be included on your name badge. While your name badge should not be your business card, it should be a representation of the company you work for. This means your company logo or name in text form is a must. Obviously, your name should be larger and more prominent than anything else on the badge. The choice of font should be a simple and easy to read, and when possible include your title on your badge. Note that:

  • A name badge is an introduction. People glance at a name badge, not read it like a book. If you want people to remember your name and company, make them stand out.
  • Name badges don’t work if they are facing the wrong way. Invest in a good, no-twist lanyard to keep your identification facing out so people can see it.
  • At Quick Badge & Sign Inc., we provide a variety of styles. If you prefer a badge fastener, we offer magnetic fasteners. If your team or event is large, we offer color coded name badge holders and lanyards to make it easy in identifying people.
  • We also have badge carrying cases for organizing badges that are readily and available.

Quick Badge & Sign Inc. Can Solve Your Problems

Value, fast service, and design experts are the three main reasons thousands of customers trust us with their name badges and name tags. There are several reasons for your business to use name badges, and there are several different types of badges to choose from.

Who Needs Name Tags and Badges?

posted in: Name Tags

Who needs nametags and badges? Well, everybody. But there are different ways that these products can really serve your business in a positive way. Here are some of the reasons why it’s a good idea to implement a badge setup across all of your business locations and facilities. Badges and IDs are a vital part of setting your business up to succeed!

Your People

Assigning name tags and badges to employees is a great way to keep some order in busy day-to-day activities and operations, and to recognize everyone’s career progress.

For many people, a good name tag or badge is a visible symbol of their position in a company. Sometimes, for example, these are useful in promoting “champion” or other workplace incentive campaigns.

At the same time, tags and badges help to introduce these people to others outside of the business. Name tags and badges with a security component also give people access to key areas in order to do their jobs.

From physical site security to easy introductions, name tags and badges are certainly worth the investment.

Your Suppliers

Many different types of businesses have multiple vendors or suppliers who need to come on site, either to deliver materials or deliver services related to either the building or the business process. But this can introduce its own kind of chaos, if site operations are not managed properly.

Having specific badge or tag programs available for these outsiders helps to maintain security for trade secrets and sensitive information. Again, it also helps people to understand who everyone is on the site and why they are there. It makes operations (and the roles of people in them) more transparent … and that’s a good thing!

Your Visitors

Visitor tag and badge programs are another excellent example of good cybersecurity best practices. Physical site security is a key component of overall business security and it’s important to make sure you have safe and effective security processes in place for your business facilities. Unless it’s an open store where anyone is free to come and go, identity management programs are a must. That’s another reason why having identification badges is so important to businesses.

At Quick Badge and Sign, Inc. in Fairview, OR we have a diversity of ways to help you to streamline business and make sure best practices are in place. We know that your business is not like any other, and has its own particular needs. Ask us about our products for identity access and management programs, and how these can help to protect your business assets. We are excited to hear from you about how to improve your company!
