Have fun creating your holiday signs!

Custom signs come in your choice of size, color, font and design. Additional options include round or square corners, border or no border, and gray or black frame. For hanging, order signs with pre-drilled holes for screws, or pick from several adhesives to have attached on the back. Hang holiday signs from the walls of your home or office, or display them in the window. Attach a sign to a Christmas wreath using two Swivel Bulldog Clips on the back.

The best part about custom signs is that they are large enough for you to say whatever you want so that you can express your love for the holidays in your own way.

Deluxe Magnetic Fastener Benefits

A magnetic fastener holds everything in place!

Not all fasteners are created equal. As our most popular fastener choice, the deluxe magnetic fastener is an excellent choice for almost every name tag!

This magnet fastener consists of two parts: a metal plate with indentations and a plastic bar that holds two strong magnets. The plate holds the magnet in place and adheres to the back of most name tags. And the bar holds everything together and in place through multiple layers of clothing.

Our deluxe magnetic fastener is the highest quality fastener available.

The strong magnets attach easily, even through thick clothing, while preventing holes and clothing damage. Among the many fastener types offered, the deluxe magnets are best for wearing with professional clothing as they do not leave holes. Something to consider when ordering name tags for your company is that these fasteners work great on loose clothing or expensive fabrics. Unlike pins, they do not leave holes or snag on softer pieces.

Magnets also give employees the opportunity to wear a single name tag with different uniforms or clothing choices. Wear one on a shirt collar or pocket. Try one on a jacket or suit coat. Wherever is most convenient to wear it, a magnetic fastener will make sure that a name tag is instantly visible.

And, there will never be another worry about losing a name tag. These magnets are strong enough to ensure all day wear without any damage to your clothing.

Remember, your fastener choice will impact the name tag’s appearance, so choose carefully. Don’t make this decision too quickly. Make sure to weigh all possibilities before adding a fastener to your order. (Including to remember never to use magnets with a pacemaker.)

Product Highlight: Name Tag Fasteners

Name tags are all about visibility. And without the right fastener, name tags can’t reach their full potential!

From adding a logo to the right custom text, name tags are important to everyone. While most name tags are simple enough to feature a name and some company branding, they should also feature a fastener that will aid in the name tag’s presentation. Branding is one of the most important things for businesses, and keeping a name tag visible helps to maintain that hard work.

So, after choosing the right name tag for your business or organization, here are some tips for choosing the right fastener for those name tags.

name tags are never finished without choosing from our large selection of fastenersThe most traditional choice for a name tag fastener is a simple pin. Pin fasteners are sufficient to get the job done. However, putting a pin through clothing may be an issue for someone who wears a thin fabric or doesn’t want a possible hole forming. Keep in mind that pin fasteners are quite efficient, inexpensive and super easy to use!

A metal plate with indentations, which holds the magnet in place and adheres to the back of most name tags, and a plastic bar that holds two strong magnets, which holds in place through multiple layers of clothing.

Things To Consider: Name Tags

Does anyone ever really consider what it takes to produce that name tag they are wearing?

When considering a name tag the first thing that usually comes to mind is typically the name that appears on it. However, there is so much more to consider when looking at name tags.

An excerpt from a Coller Industries employee:laser engraved name tags

Name Tag, Inc. opened my eyes to what really goes into producing a name tag. When wearing a name tag one never really thinks about all the work, the people involved or machines used to make it. When first looking at a name tag the color, the person’s name and title, and the logo are what really stand out. Not much else is really considered.

As part of customer service, my view has definitely changed on what goes into making a name tag and the process behind the scenes. A lot goes into setting up orders, sending out proofs and working with design worksheets. There are so many colors and materials and different ways to put a name tag together. This may sound weird, but I feel like I help make name tag dreams come true.

Orders start with an internet order or a phone call. Once the specifics are laid out by the customer, the design team goes to work. Sometimes a customer has an image from the online design tool which provides a more visual picture of the “dream,” and sometimes only simple instructions like size, color and logo placement are included as instructions. Whatever the case, all customers end up with a PDF proof showing them what the name tags will look like.

consider using classy name tag frames - small, medium and large
consider adding an epoxy dome to name tags both plastic and metal

Once a proof is seen, all the extras and smaller details begin to take shape. Many customers have questions at this point, such as the tag size, the option of an epoxy dome, or adding a name tag frame. All these options come highly recommended, and while they do add a minor cost to the name tag purchase, the end results are worth it.

Once the proof has been approved by the customer, the order is sent to a quality checker to make sure that all the order information is correct and consistent. Then, when the order passes this check, the production team takes over. There are various machines that make different name tags. Laser engravers are used on both plastic and metal materials to cut and engrave names, titles and logos. There is also a full color print machine that prints in vibrant colors. Each name tag is carefully completed according to the specifications that were check and rechecked in customer service.

consider which name tag or name badge fasteners to usePart of production is assembly of the product. Fasteners, such as magnets, are affixed to the name tag. Before any name tag is shipped, two more quality control people review the order again. Once this is complete, the package is sealed and given to a trusty UPS driver who then gets them delivered directly to the customer.

 

Now that’s a lot to think about and consider when looking at a name tag! So, the next time you see a name tag, I hope that you can take a moment to reflect about all the hands and time (and care) that went into its production.
