“Nothing is written in stone.” Things are constantly changing. Laws get replaced by new laws. Your HR department has to rewrite policies. Each year, your team comes up with new strategies. And on and on.

At NiceBadge, we laugh at the idea that things shouldn’t be written in stone! Or at least wood, metal, PVC, or leather. But saying “nothing is written in PVC” doesn’t have the same ring to it.

The point is, your employees can have engraved name badges and feel that at least something is permanent. Even better, you can receive an order of brand new badges in just a few days! Make your employees excited and stand out in the minds of your customers.

What Sets Engraved Name Badges Apart?

At NiceBadge, we use several types of high-quality printing that we’re proud of. But engraving is another option that might work well for your team. Imagine having wood, stainless steel, aluminum, leather, or PVC engraved with a laser—now that’s permanence.

4 Benefits of Engraved Badges

Tips on How to Customize Pin Badges the Right Way

custom pin badges

Over the years, companies have been using pin badges for a variety of purposes. Whether it’s to further brand recognition, for identification purposes, or to reward employees for excellence, a well-designed pin badge can go a long way in helping you and your employees stand out. Here are a few tips on how to design your custom pin badge the right way!

Determine Its Purpose

This tip might seem obvious, but it is incredibly important. Understanding what you are designing a badge for goes a long way in helping you to craft the perfect pin badge.

For example, if you want to make a name badge, you are going to want a material that is both durable and allows for easy readability of both a name and a logo. If you are looking to create a custom pin badge as a reward for excellence, you’ll want to choose materials that will create a “wow’ factor that your employees will be honored to wear.

Pick the Right Size

Another great tip when it comes to designing the perfect custom pin badge is picking the right size. You don’t want your badge to take up so much space that it’s cumbersome to wear, but you also don’t want to have people squint when they try to read it.

Typically, between 3 x 2 & 4 x 3 inches is perfect for a name badge, as it allows easy readability. If your purpose is to create a lapel pin, you can go a bit smaller and still have it easily stand out.

Go For Multiple Colors

While opting for a black and white template or a monocolored badge might be cheaper and easier to make, they tend not to leave a lasting impression. This is especially true if you plan to have your logo displayed.

By allowing a wider color palette, you are leaving yourself room to be able to craft a more unique and recognizable pin badge, making it stand out from the crowd.

No Desk Is Complete Without an Engraved Desk Name Plate

It doesn’t matter if you’re a real estate agent or a mechanical engineer: when you’re at work, your desk is basically your home away from home.

Our List of Desk Essentials

If you’re starting a new job or just want to refresh your current workspace, this is the ultimate list of desk items you can’t live without:

Why Employees Love Personalized Name Badges

If you own your own business, you spend a lot of time thinking about how to make your company stand out from the competition. Maybe you’ve created an eye-catching logo, a funny social media campaign, an awesome playlist for your retail space, or seasonal dishes for your restaurant menu. Whatever it may be, personalization is a necessity for elevating your business. 

Incorporating Personalized Badges

With all the thought you’ve put into standing out, have you thought about giving your employees personalized name badges? No matter what type of company you own, your employees will love them.

There are many reasons to enjoy personalized badges, but making the switch isn’t just about making employees happy. This simple change can also make even your customers feel more connected to your brand as they build deeper connections with your employees.

Building Human Connection

As mentioned earlier, unique name badges aren’t a frivolous accessory for your employees—customers love them too. Studies show that using someone’s name in conversation creates more respect, and can even make two people like each other more. 

In contrast, forgetting someone’s name can lead to hurt feelings and a lack of connection. So when you invest in personalized badges, you’re fostering a more positive environment for both employees and customers.

Increased Accountability

When your employees are wearing name tags, there’s no chance for anonymity on the job. Customers will be able to compliment stellar employees by name—and also complain about those who aren’t delivering customer service up to your standards. This will ensure greater accountability and easier communication within the workplace.

Different Types of Employee Name Badges

If you thought finding employee name tags that accurately represent your company was a quick and easy task, think again.

There are plenty of diverse design options and components to choose from when it comes to employee badges, each having an effect on how others view the badges and your employees. However, it is very possible to find (or design) the perfect badge, you’ll just need to go through each detail, one at a time.

Here are some of the common aspects of employee name badges that you’ll need to consider.

Plastic or Metal?

Most name badges are made from either of these two materials, and each has its perks. Plastic gives a professional feel for a cheaper price while metal grants style and sophistication to the badge.

Reusable or Permanent?

You’ll need to decide whether you want a reusable name badge or not. If your company is one that sees a lot of turnover, reusable badges allow you to switch information easily, while permanent badges offer a more tight-knit feel.

Add a Corporate Logo?

Adding the logo of your company on your employee badges can be a great move. Just the presence of the logo on the badge grants officiality to your employees. However, it is still very possible to create professional badges without the logo.

Add an Employee Picture?

If you are looking for an employee name badge that is more secure and authentic, adding an employee picture can be a great move. This also helps to make each badge unique for each employee.

The Benefits of Having Official Volunteer Name Tags

In any organization that interacts with the general public, it’s wise to have staff members wear name tags so they can be easily identified. It helps customers feel more comfortable approaching them with questions or when they need help with their purchase. It is also useful during events for the people serving and directing patrons to wear a name badge, as it instills confidence and encourages a feeling of comfort and safety. However, for many businesses, the question arises, “Do we need volunteer name tags as well?”

Why You Need Volunteer Name Tags

When your event or organization requires the participation of volunteers to keep things running smoothly, it is important to include them as part of the team. They should always be given personalized volunteer name tags to set them apart from customers, show that they are capable of providing assistance, and encourage personal connections.

What You Should Include on Volunteer Badges

When designing name badges for permanent employees, you most likely include a name, title or position, and a company logo. Volunteers should be given name tags that are just as personal and informative. Rather than labeling several name tags with the word “volunteer” and using them interchangeably, create official volunteer badges that include each individual’s name.

Other items you may consider including are special skills or responsibilities. Use the examples below for inspiration.

  • If you have a volunteer who comes in to provide translation services, include a message that lets people know they can interact with this volunteer in that language. 
  • If you work in a healthcare environment, you may have someone who brings in a dog or other therapy service animal. Identifying this particular volunteer as the one responsible for these animals provides a needed element of authority that will encourage safe interactions and trusting relationships.
  • Maybe you run a museum or gallery and would like to encourage visitors to learn more about the items on display. You can add a phrase like, “Ask me about velociraptors,” or “Do you know how much a baby elephant weighs?” 
  • You may also choose to include the year a volunteer started working with you, or the number of years they have been helping out. This shows that they have some experience with a particular subject or task and celebrates their dedication.

Where to Find Volunteer Name Tags

Since volunteer turnover may be higher than permanent staff members, you don’t want to spend a lot of money creating custom volunteer badges. However, you still want a high-quality product with unique information. Check out NiceBadge for your volunteer name tags and start designing the perfect badges for your organization.
