A Complete Guide to Name Badges


Name badges are the first impression you offer to another individual. Whether you’re working in an office, representing an organization, or attending a social gathering, these name badges provide others with a clear initial introduction and impression of who you are. That’s why we aim to provide individuals with name badges that suit their individual needs. Below, you can read about how different types of badges will serve you.

Custom Engraved Name Badges

These are some of the most popular engravings available. That’s because customizable name badges can be used for a number of gatherings and purposes. There are a few features that come with these name badges including company name, logo, and message laser engraved on a large selection of colors and materials.

With these engravings, you can decide to have them engraved with 1-4 lines, with or without a logo or design image. These are optimal for work parties, reunions, etc. With custom engravings, you can add an individual’s work position, name, etc. The main distinguishing feature of a Custom Engraved Badge is that it is two colors – the background and the contrasting engraved text and/or logo.

You can also add metal frames to the name badges if you want to have a more luxurious look.

Custom Full Color Logo Name Badges

The main difference between these name badges and the aforementioned name badges is that the logo can be printed in full color. In most cases the variable text such as names and titles are still engraved by a laser. All badges come standard with a safety pin on the back to ensure that they attach to clothing properly. You may upgrade the backing to a magnet which is much more clothes-friendly since you do not need to poke holes in your clothing. Other backing options such as bulldog clips and fold overs are also available.

You can also ask to have original art made for your name badges, which will come at an extra cost if you cannot supply your own logo or artwork. Using original art for your badges will provide them with a unique look that sets them apart from others on the market. The best art files to submit are vector images such as .ai, .eps, or .cdr formats.

Custom Full Color Logo Name Badges

You also have the option of buying badges that only have a logo, which may be useful for conventions or companies with larger turnover. This will allow you to display your company name with your distinct branding with the convenience of using printed labels in-house. This is also a way to take advantage of higher quantity discounts as you may order a “stock” of badges that we can keep in inventory to engrave as needed for you.

Custom Metal Frame Engraved Name Badges

The difference between these name badges and some of our other options is that while they host the same features as our previous options, they customize the name badges with metal frames. You have the option of using silver or gold frames.

When metal frames are used, they have plastic inserts that allow for company names, logos, your name, etc. We also offer custom designs for those who want a unique twist to their name badge.
