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

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.
