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.

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.
