Finding the Right Kind of Name Tag | Custom Name Badges

Wearing name tags at work will add personality to your business, and make your staff approachable.

We can help you find the type of employee name badge, tag or button that works best for your company.

Choose from a variety of styles - like name tag pins, magnetic name tags or clip on badges.

Traditional Name Badge With Pin On The Back

Staff Badges Employee Name TagsUsing traditional pinback buttons is a durable and affordable option for name tags. Made out of all metal, these name badges do not break or damage easily. The high quality pin attached to the back, keeps the badge in place throughout the whole workday.

Note that you can customize the name tags however you want them - you choose the colours, text and elements for your company's name tags.

Most businesses use our online button designer to upload their logo and add the names of their staff.

Magnetic Name Tags Won't Damage Your Clothes

 Name Tags That Won't Damage ClothesBy using these little rare earth magnets with buttons, we're able to offer a name tag option that doesn't pierce through your garments.

Place the magnet on the inside of your shirt, dress or jacket and it will hold the metallic button in place. These magnets may be small, but their power is mighty. A tiny little 1/4" rare earth magnet can hold a mid size name badge in place without any problem.
Warning: Do not use with pacemakers.

Since these name tags are needle free, they leave no marks or traces on clothing and are therefore well suited for more upscale and dressed up events, such as weddings, conferences, fundraiser dinners and galas.


Sturdy All Metal Clip On Name Badge

Bulldog Clip For Clip On Name BadgesThis is another solid name tag option for your staff to wear in store, at events or workshops. The badge itself is assembled with an unpinned or flat metal back. Then an adhesive metal clip called 'bulldog clip' is attached to the back. The adhesive is surprisingly strong and there is very little risk for the clip to fall off the button.

Durable & Reusable Dry Erase Name Tag

Here's your go-to-option if you run an event, weekend course or workshop where you will accommodate new participants on a regular basis and will need a name badge that can be reused and recycled.

Using a matte laminate finish allows you to write the name on the button with a marker. After the event, wipe the button clean and write a new name!
