What’s in a Name Tag?
Imagine attending a networking event. Someone sees the image of your name tag from a few feet away, recognizes you, and knows what you do for a living. This really happened to me — and I was 3,000 miles from home! (They were a long time newsletter subscriber.)
Another reason to have name tags designed for your company that are consistent with your company’s brand is that everything will be spelled correctly! At a minimum include your logo and company colors as well as your first name and last name. If there is room include who you work with — or your 3-7 word tagline. You can design your name tag online, have your graphic designer create it, or hire your local printer or promotional materials company.
Action: Choose a method to produce your name tag from above. You can simply print your badge on high-quality, heavy letterhead paper and place it in a clear badge holder. Or, you can get as fancy as some of the badges on this website: http://www.mynamebadges.com/
