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!

Top 4 Business Types that Require Name Tags

No matter the end goal, the first thing any business must accomplish is to engage with clientele.

Connecting with customers should be the primary purpose for any business. While it does matter what the other business goals are, engagement is the most important goal. Without engagement, customers are sure to come and go rather than stick around. With positive interaction, customers stay put, if not for life, for a very long time.

Recently studies have shown that wearing name badges make customers more comfortable while doing business with you. Wearing a name badge will remove the barrier that instinctively lies between you and your customers. Name tags always make you more approachable. While there are several different types of environments where name tags are helpful, the following settings have found that personal identification is an absolute must.

Retail and Sales

name tags are required for many business types and situationsWe’ve all seen it, the customer who walks into a store and doesn’t get the attention they think they need, so they leave. They were looking for a service or product that store offers but didn’t feel that the business met their needs. While it may seem like a small thing, a simple way to avoid your customers feeling this way is to provide name tags for your employees. These tags immediately remove all barriers and allow customers to ask questions and express their concerns to those who care. They establish trust and keep people coming back to your store.

Healthcare and Hospitals

They need to establish trust and wearing any identifier helps with this. Photo ID Badges are perfect for these positions. They not only present a name but also help put a real face to that name and thereby create a comfortable and healing atmosphere.

This identification presents them in a way that people can trust. And it gives them the credibility they need to get the whole scoop on the story they are covering. Typically referred to as a “press pass,” these photo ID badges can get them into places where an unidentified person can’t get.

Whether your business is to sell something to the public or to get the scoop on the latest new story, establishing a trust is the key to helping your clientele stay with your company. Approachability and comfort are important goals for all businesses. Get your name tags today to help you keep your customers happy.
