Information on name badges with magnets

For employees in customer-facing roles, attractive custom name badges with a magnet add a friendly, personal touch. Name badges with magnets are a hard-wearing and durable option. It is common for people to have several name badges that are worn on coats or other items of clothing.

Why a magnet?

A magnet is a simple and convenient way of attaching a name badge if you need to be able to change and attach badges to different items of clothing. The magnet leaves no holes behind in clothing and exerts a strong magnetic attraction. We attach the magnetic strip to the back of the name badge using self-adhesive tape. All you need to do is remove the topmost magnet, position the name badge where you want it and then attach the magnets to one another through the fabric.

Where should a name badge be worn?

By far the most common place to wear a name badge with magnet, and the customary position, is on the left side of the chest. If you want to be shrewd and a little more strategic in terms of where you position it, attach it on the right side – that way it stands out more when you greet someone. However, the most important consideration of all is that it should be at an appropriate height for others to notice it and for it to be easy to read.

Tips to help you design a name badge with magnet:

1. The text for name, professional affiliation or company must be clear.

2. Colour combinations: If you have a dark background, then you should use light-coloured text. If you have a light background, you should use dark-coloured text. If you have a colourful background, keep the text one colour, e.g. grey, white or black.

3. Will the name badge with magnet be worn for work? Display the company logo prominently on the name badge. Remember to use any corporate colours and fonts.

4. A symbol can transform an impersonal and formal name badge into something perceived as significantly warmer. Why not add a smiley face? :)
