A professional name badge is your personal figurehead
In business and the service sector they are as much a part of good manners as the handshake: name badges. Even more so. In addition to the possibility of introducing yourself to your customers and business partners with your good name and also to make a lasting impression, name badges literally have the function of a figurehead.
No matter whether standardized or individual: A name tag offers numerous possibilities for design. Sometimes they are made of metal, sometimes of plastic, sometimes of aluminium, sometimes of stainless steel. They are often printed on, while other users prefer engraving.
In addition, there are almost infinite variations for the wearers of the name badges in terms of appearance. If the first name and surname of the wearer as well as a company logo are sometimes attached under often transparent plastic, these details can also be attached to the frame depending on the design of the badge.
It is not uncommon for discussions to flare up about which form of fastening the name badges for clothing is the most favourable. Some people swear by a clip-on clip, others by the good old safety pin for badges. More and more often, however, name tags with magnets are being used.
On the reverse side of their sleeves a plastic-enveloped, magnetic carrier element is attached. Another magnet is attached to a clip, which can be placed behind the lapel of a jacket or on the back of a tie, for example, and thus ensures that the name badge is held securely in place.
Differently strong magnetic connections ensure that name tags on business shirts and blouses are just as secure and comfortable as those on winter jackets made of firmer material.
Manufacturers who follow the fashion for name tags have long since developed technologies to make the eye-catchers "twist-proof" so that they stay in shape. Everything for the professional and neat appearance of their wearers.
To what extent name badges with magnets are suitable for wearers of pacemakers should be checked with the manufacturer. The Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) has corresponding information available for users of such name tags.
It is also advisable to inform wearers of name tags with magnets that the modern tags should be worn or stored at an appropriate distance from magnetic cards and diskettes.
