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

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!

Why Every Employee Should Have a Name Plate

Name plates are one of the four resources we suggested for increasing brand awareness, but they are also a way to boost morale and confidence of your employees. Overall, custom name plates have multiple benefits and do much more than simply state a name and a job title.

Benefits of name plates:

Employee Integration: The first day on the job can be nerve racking. The newbie is coming into a foreign environment, not 100% what they’re getting themselves in to.  A good way to curb the anxiety of the new employee and make them more at home is to have a custom name plate ready and waiting at their desk. They will realize that you’ve taken the time to invest in them, and to make them feel like part of the company family.
Not only that, but if everyone in the office has a name plate, then the newbie will be able to focus on their new job duties, rather than learning the names and positions of every other employee in the company.

Increased Professionalism: If every employee has a uniformly designed name plate, it adds a fluency to the work environment. Because one name plate isn’t flashier than another, your employees will feel more like a family than competitors, and with the feeling of family comes loyalty.
On top of that, if clients or customers come into the office and see the name plates, they will notice the extra care your company takes to cultivate working relationships and professionalism.

Navigation: If displayed properly and efficiently, name plates can be a compass in your work environment. They can create a flow from department to department, so that when visitors or newcomers enter the office, they will have no problems finding where they need to be.
Invest in Your Employees = Invest in Your Customers: Name plates are a monetary and time investment in your employees, and furthermore, they’re an investment in brand new employees who haven’t even had a chance to prove themselves. Regardless, ordering name plates for your staff illustrates your willingness to put faith in the future of your employees and company, and that directly translates to your willingness to invest in your customers in clients.

What name plates should include:

Company Logo
Employee’s Name
Department/Job Title

Where to put them:

On the employee’s desk
On the door or wall leading into the employee’s office
On the wall of the employee’s cubicle
