Self-Adhesive ID Badge

Name badge labels are an ideal security solution for businesses that have visitors frequently coming and going, including schools and medical facilities. Create temporary printed or handwritten ID badges for business meetings, support groups, seminars, conferences, staff reunions, and even the office Christmas party.

Our bestsellers include the Avery Flexible Adhesive Name Badge Labels, which feature improved flexibility and a peel-away design to ensure the material sticks securely to clothing without falling or curling at the corners. Write directly onto the labels or choose from Avery's selection of free templates to add specialized messages, text, graphics, and logos on the spot.

Standard Badge Holder

Don't risk valuable ID badges becoming damaged – featuring strong vinyl materials, purchase a badge holder for every employee to keep high-tech proximity cards, such as a driver's license or access key, for example, safe and clean

Choose the Sicurix Sealable Cardholder to keep your vertical ID badge, proximity card, or official document safe and protected. These holders can be securely sealed and are therefore designed to defend name badges from extreme weather conditions such as rain or snow.

ID Badge Reels

Reels are a type of badge holder best suited to environments where staff members work alongside heavy machinery with moving parts, such as warehouses and factories.

Their retractable cords allow for the convenient scanning or swiping of cards to enter secure areas, use in cafeterias, clock into the workplace, and more. Attach keys and cards to belts, backpacks, badges, and pockets for easy, yet safe access.

Looking for a stylish option that ties in with your company's unique designs? The Advantus Deluxe Retractable ID Card Reel comes in a variety of colors that tie in with your branding, allowing employees to represent your business with pride.

Lanyards - Use with a clear badge holder

Lanyards are a popular choice for employee ID badges that must be on display at all times, whether for security or personal identification reasons. A top-selling item in our catalog is the Advantus Deluxe Safety Lanyards. These have a lobster claw hook that can hold an ID card without attaching to clothing, along with a breakaway connector that ensures safety if snagged, pulled, or caught.

Try the Advantus Clip Style Lanyards with Retractable ID Reels if an ID card needs to be both visible and secure. This 36-inch lanyard can extend a further 24 inches, meaning your employees will no longer struggle to move their ID card or security pass within range of sensors and readers.

Benefits of Using Employee ID Badges

ID badges aren't just reserved for large corporations with hundreds of employees - they're a necessary tool for all businesses wanting to safeguard employees and visitors.

This form of professional personal identification card should feature your company logo, a design that fits your branding, security elements like holographic overlays, and a high-resolution ID photo, all of which provide the following benefits:

Enhanced Security: Employee ID badges act as an instant form of personal identification and are an effective tool for distinguishing between staff and visitors within the workplace. An electric ID card can also keep sensitive information secure and restrict access to certain areas.

Easy Employee Monitoring: As well as controlling where your workforce can go, employee ID cards also allow managers to monitor productivity levels. Keep track of clock-in times, work duration, project progress, and workstation habits, which may even encourage employees to work that little bit harder while on shift.

Boosted Morale: Wearing an ID card with their names, job titles, skills, achievements, and company logo gives employees a good sense of where they belong within the business structure. This is a key factor in creating a happy workforce who are motivated to work hard and go that extra mile to be more productive.

Improved Brand Awareness: Wearing a well-designed ID card with a visible company logo is a great way of promoting your brand to potential customers. They can be used both in and out of the workplace, at seminars, workshops, trade shows, and external meetings to reinforce your company's image, wherever your employees happen to be.

FAQs

Eager to find out more about our extensive ID card range? Discover some of our most frequently asked questions below:

Why Are ID Badges Important?

ID badges are essential security tools that protect sensitive data and help to identify visitors and employees in the workplace. Carrying an ID card also promotes a professional brand image, while creating a good sense of belonging for employees that encourages a more productive workforce.

How Should You Carry an ID Card?

Lanyards worn around the neck are often the most popular option for carrying an ID card, particularly those that need to be visible at all times. However, badge reels can be more convenient as they clip onto bags, belts, and pockets. They also typically feature retractable cords for safe and easy access, especially in environments with heavy machinery.

How Do You Wear an ID Badge Without a Lanyard?

Badge reels are one of the best options for wearing employee ID badges without using a lanyard or damaging clothing. Many models feature belt or swivel clips that easily slip onto pockets, belts, bags, and clothing so that your personal information can remain visible but not get in the way throughout the working day.

What is the Purpose of an ID Card Policy?

Having a comprehensive ID card policy ensures that only employees and visitors with the right authorization can enter the building, which creates a safe working environment. It also carefully sets out the rules for when an ID card should be worn, why carrying one is necessary, and what happens if employees fail to wear theirs at the required times.
