Guide to Buying Your Name Tags & Badges

There are several factors to consider when investing in name tags and badges for your business.

  • Name Tag & Badge Purpose

    How will name tags and badges benefit your business? Are they for improving employee collaboration, customer service, a bit of both, or something more?

  • Branding & Design For Name Tags And Badges

    Name tags and badges are a branding opportunity — How do you want the name tags and badges to match your company branding? Think about what elements should be included or considered, such as colors, fonts, logo, and position title of the employee.


    The maximum length of employee names should also be factored into the design as well.

  • Your First Batch Order Of Name Tags & Badges For Testing

    It can be difficult to make a proper decision.

    • Will the name tag look great on your company uniform?

    • Would fellow employees and customers be able to easily read the name tags and badges?

    • Would they weigh down the uniform in any uncomfortable way?

    Decide on the best design combinations for placing your first order. That way, you can minimize the risk of a name tag design that might not serve your needs.

  • Consider Your Internal Product Release Protocols

    Before making the new name tags and badges available to the public and all employees, it is important to follow company procedures for testing the name tag first.


    Internal product release protocols can consist of running a small, controlled group test, gathering feedback, and making any necessary changes before the full release. This helps ensure any and all issues can be identified before a complete commitment to a bulk order.


    It also helps generate excitement, engagement, and buzz among employees in anticipation of their brand new name tags or badges!

  • Name Tag And Badge Quality & Durability

    Materials matter when it comes to name tags and badges. Not only do they provide the durability and longevity of name tags and badges, they also influence the perceived value and message they convey of your brand and employees. Sizing also plays a role as well, both in terms of how cumbersome they may be to wear and the impression they set for the customer.

Name Tags & Badges FAQ

How do I place a name tag & badge order?

Once you decide on a design, give us a call to discuss your name tag needs. We would verify all the details of your order, including what is included in the design, your choice of materials, and sizing expectations. Once this is confirmed, your order can be processed after payment is received. Name tag orders may be processed and shipped on the same day depending on the size of order.

How do I ensure consistent name tags & badges?

It is important to establish a name tag policy. With the proper guidelines, future orders can abide by the same design name tag, including the font type and size, tag sizing measurement, layout of design elements, colors, and other graphics.

What makes a good name tag or badge?

A good name tag should have a clean, professional look and feel that reflects your company brand and image. It should also be:


  • easy to read with a clear and legible font;
  • durable to withstand daily wear and tear; and
  • easy-to-customize elements with clearly defined limitations.

What is the difference between name tags and name badges?

Name tags tend to include employee name and position on it. Name badges can include greater detail, which makes them bigger.


Name tags are also typically attached to clothing with a pin, clip, or magnet, whereas name badges can use the same or adhesive backing for attaching to clothing. 

Are name tags or badges necessary?

They can be useful for many reasons, such as employee identification and security, setting a professional image among employees and customers, and for brand building. Though name tags may not be necessary, they can serve as a small investment with a great yield in other intangible areas to your business.

Should employees wear name tags or badges?

Whether or not employees wear name tags can depend on company policies and specific needs. You can consider whether competitors and industry standard involves the need for name tags, whether employees (or certain employees) engage customers and clients frequently, and the culture companies wish to set, such as a transparency and inclusivity.

Should name tags or badges be worn on left or right?

There is no specific rules on which side or location name tags and badges should be worn for businesses in Canada and the US. Identifying a specific location on employee outfits within your company name tag policy and enforcing it can help create a sense of consistency, accessibility, and visibility for employees and customers.
