Ordering A Predefined Stock Template

Our website has changed! We have now made it easier to order a predefined stock template name tag.

ordering a predefined stock template name tag or name badge with metal and plastic materialsSelect a template and material type from one of our available options. Each option has been set up with predefined text lines and a name tag size. No proof is required for these name tags, and there is no required set-up fee. Provide your name and title list when placing your order for possible next day shipping. Keep in mind that quantity, material and other options selected on the order page will affect the pricing and production time.

Stock templates are available as both metal and plastic name tags. All name tags ordered on these pages will only have text. (If you want to add a logo, they are still available on the other order pages.)

All text is laser engraved into the top layer or core of the plastic to reveal the second color to create a two color plastic name tag. Solid colors have a matte finish, metallic colors have either a brushed or smooth finish, and wood grains have a slight gloss finish.

Laser engraving creates a two color name tag. Each colored metal has a lacquer finish or a reflective mirror-like finish. The engraved color will be the silver or bronze of the underlying metal. On gold and silver tags the laser oxidizes to a dark gray or black.

All of these predefined templates have the option of adding at least a first name. As you browse these templates, notice that each option has different features. Such as Styles A and B only have one line for a first name, while styles J and M both have three lines for names, titles and company name.

Each template option comes in plastic or metal and has the same color choices! Choose from 29 plastic color combinations and 18 metal colors. Plastic options come in a combination as the engraving process requires that one color will show through the other. Metal is a bit different as it just reveals the underlying color of the metal instead of a two layer plastic.

Whatever your choice, these new stock template pages are easy-to-use and will give you a professional looking name tag. And, they’re sure to meet any need!

Name Tag Definitions: Part 3

Defining our business helps our customers to understand what we do.

While our FAQ pages are full of your questions, we thought we’d get down to the nitty-gritty for you. Here is part three of our definition series so, find out more about how our business runs with these great definitions for some of our products!

LOGO size and PLACEMENT

Most of our name tags and name badges have the option to use a logo or graphic. However, there are several things to know when providing your logo to be used on your name tags.

Size:

definitions of name tags name badges and other personal identificationTry to limit the amount of detail in your logo. At smaller sizes, incredibly detailed logos are not visible, and many processes have a hard time duplicating it. Provide only enough detail to make the logo recognizable.

The size of your logo on the name tag needs to leave enough room for the names and titles that you wish to provide. Names and logos should be large enough to read from at least 10 feet away.

Placement:

Logos that are short and wide look best at the top or bottom center of the tag. Logos that are square, or taller than they are in width, will look better on the left or right side of the tag.

IMAGE BLEED

definitions of name tags name badges and other personal identificationThis feature is only available on our full-color name tags. A bleed means that the background colors of a design may extend off the edges of the tag. The design may bleed on any and all sides of the name tag. If you are creating a tag that will have an image that fills the background area of the tag or meets the edge, you will need to create the background image to the exact size, or larger, of the tag. Keep the corners of your image square even if you plan on rounding them.
