Badge clips for name badges are excellent ways of attaching name badges. Name badges are used for security purposes, for identification, for improving customer relations or to boost employee confidence. They are used in events for socializing. However a name badge without a badge clip is quite useless because it will be impossible to attach to clothing. However, the name clips are not attached directly to the badge. Instead, they are on badge holders.
Badge attachments come in a variety of different forms, such as clips, pins, lanyards, or magnets. There are many factors to consider while deciding which type of clip to use. These factors include cost, market availability, the types of individuals who will be using the badges, and the purpose of the name badges.
In terms of per-badge-cost, different clips have different costs associated with them. The pins are the cheapest. They are difficult to secure which explains why they are the hardest to use. Because of this, they may not be suitable for all audiences.
Alligator clips follow in the cost list, as they are the second cheapest. They are also difficult to secure because it is hard to find a place to attach the clip to on the clothes.
Around-the-neck Lanyards are the easiest to use. They have a clip on the badge end and a loop to slip over the head. They are, however, more expensive than the other two types already discussed, but their good qualities make using them worth the extra cost. In fact, they can be custom made to hold the badge. Lanyards can also act as promotional tools for the business using them. There is also a variety of lanyard which, when used wisely, brings out the personality of the company or the badge wearer.
Magnetic pins are the also expensive and can only be used with metallic name badges. They hold fast and are highly sophisticated. Another factor to consider is the availability of badge clips in the market.
If the clips are urgently needed, the most available materials are the pins and alligator clip kits. Lanyards ,especially the custom made ones, will require time, so they need to be ordered early to allow availability on the day needed. The final consideration is what the badge wearer expects and needs. An office person will need a durable clip that is easy to put on and take off while a conference or event is ongoing. They will need one-time disposable clips.
A young student will need something fun and personalized such as a lanyard while a company executive will need something with a touch of sophistication such as the magnetic pins. When all these factors are considered together, it is easy to make the right decision. It is also wise to look around before making the final decision so as to have the best value for the money spent!
