Cheap and Re-Useable Name Badges and Tags for Employees

by wrylilt

An important part of customer service is helping the customer feel there is a personal connection - and employee name badges can help!

A customer will find that a name badge can be an important part of their shopping experience. Not only do name badges allow them to identify staff members who work at the store, with a store logo but they also have other advantages. A name badge allows the customer to feel that they can connect to the employee as well as giving them a name to either leave complimentary feedback about or maybe negative feedback if they didn't like the service they received.
No matter what type of store you own, a name badge can add personality and professionalism to your staff image. Whether you choose a mass produced name badge or a more personalised embroidered shirt name, customers will be able to easily identify and even get to know store employees.

Hanging Name Badges

A hanging name badge is another option for easy to identify employee names.
These are a great option if you want something easy and cheap.
Simply buy holders with attached strings (with or without clips for removal at the back) and then insert a printed name card into the holder.
Name cards are usually made of high quality cardboard or paper and can be easily printed with employee names on your printer.
This also gives employees an easily portable holder for ID if required (for example in the medical field.)

Embroidered Name Shirts

If you want a more personalised touch, usually best for either long term employees or companies with a smaller number of staff, an embroidered shirt is a great way to add to your company's look.
It's usually best to buy the shirts in a large amount from a corporate uniform company and then have them seperately embroidered with the company logo and the employee's name.

Reuseable High Quality Name Badges

There are two good options if you run a large business and need personalised name badges:
Contact a manufacturer in your area who will agree to cheaper pricing for mass orders of personalised name badges. Then order in the amount required. This works best if you intake a large number of employees into your store at a time or are willing to wait for a certain period (such as a trial period) to be over before supplying an employee with a name badge.Order name badges that are blank, with a simple company logo at the top. This is a great option if you generally have a large number of casual staff (including times such as holidays) or simply have a high staff turnover. Use a simple labelling machine to attach an employee's name to the badge and then remove and reuse the badge for another employee.
