Plastic name badges are probably the most widely used of all name badges. This is because they are durable, can incorporate various colours and fonts in their design, are cost effective and are readily available. This makes them attractive to small businesses and multinational organisations. But what do you have to look out for before purchasing a plastic name badge for your business? One of the most important things to consider is the purpose for which the badge will be used for.
This will give you an idea of what to look for in the market. Will the badge be for everyday use, will it be for just one occasion? What message do you want to drive home with the badge, promotional or corporate identity? Is the badge for security purposes or simple identification? When choosing an everyday use plastic badge, you have to put to mind the durability and the comfort factors. Employees need something that will not give in to wear and tear and is easy to carry around and wear.
This means you have to buy a badge with a hard material and a long lasting holder. If it is a one use only badge, lighter plastic which happen to be cheaper will be the better option. On the other hand the design of the badge should match the purpose. If it is a promotional plastic badge, it should be colourful to catch many people’s eye. However, if it is a plastic name badge to be used in a board room, it should be in cool colours displaying quite elegance.
The size of the badge and the size of fonts used also matters a lot in this case. For security purposes, plastic badges must have a material that is durable and easy to incorporate other accessories like the magnetic strips, finger prints, photos and many more. This is in contradiction to identification name badges which can possess the name of the badge wearer only.
The final thing to consider doing before any purchases is price comparison. Even though many traders have the same products some are cheaper than others. It is therefore wise to shop around for your desired product. This can be done online or in the stores in your surroundings. Eventually you will have the best product for your use at the cheapest cost possible!
