Displaying Your Name Plate

While name plates are common in most workplaces, we all need them for different reasons.

And, many of us have a desk or cubicle at work, so it’s easy to display that coveted piece of personal identification. And while most name plates have a name and title, some are used for other reasons around the office.

display a name plate easily with a variety of holders and methods at your office or on your desk

Name plates easily sit on a corner or small portion of your desk.

There are many ways to accomplish this useful tool. Use a traditional metal desk holder for your plastic or metal engraved name plate. These sit conveniently on the corner of any desk so that they are visible to passersby. Another option is to choose an acrylic desk block or executive desk wedge. These options, while a little less traditional, actually offer an upgrade to your name plate look.

Another option for a desk top is the plastic desk base. This classy item fits most designs and still allow the nameplate to sit on the corner of your desk comfortably. Or, be a little less traditional and set it on your computer monitor or tower.

Attach a name plate to the front of a desk.

Using either a wall mount or adhesive, attach the plate on the front of your desk. This idea is perfect for the current trend of standing desks. That way, no matter the height of your desk, your name plate will always be visible. Choose from Velcro, magnets or double-sided tape to accomplish this simple, yet effective presentation.

Mount the plate on a wall or door of your office or cubicle.

Name Plate Holders
A name plate holder will display your name plates on walls, cubicles or desks. Most people simply refer to these products as holders, brackets or sliders. However, none of these terms fully describes the products we offer. A simple way to clear up what you need is to answer the question of where you are putting the name plate.

Our name plate holder products include:

Desk Holders
These simple, curved-style holders will display a name plate on a desk or other flat, horizontal surface. A name plate slides easily into the holder and can be changed as needed.

Wall Mounts
Attach or mount these flat-style holders to a wall or door to display your name plate. By using adhesive or nails/screws, these holders are easy to install. And, your name plate slides into the holder just as easily as a desk holder.

Cubicle Hangers
This clear, plastic holder displays your name plate on your cubicle wall or over a door. The name plate holds in place by the pressure of the flap or can attach to the plastic flap with double-sided tape for a more finished look.

Plastic Desk Bases
With a slanted opening in these flat-style holders, your name plate will stand upright for easy viewing. These are commonly used on desks or other flat, horizontal surfaces.
