Consider these three upgrades to affect the finished look, quality and price of the standard name badge:

  1. Badge frames: When you place a full-color sublimated name badge into a gold or silver frame, it really finishes the name badge and screams quality.
  2. Findings: Findings are the hardware on the back of the badge that holds it onto a person’s shirt or coat. The lowest price finding is the regular pin back. Pin backs are the standard for name badges. These work great, but some customers do not want to stick a pin through their nice clothes, so they can be upgraded to a magnetic back.
  3. Magnetic backs: A metal bar sticks to the back of the name badge, and a very strong plastic encased magnet is then placed inside the garment that it is worn on, which holds the name badge in place.
