COMMON NAME BADGE MISTAKES AND HOW YOU CAN AVOID THEM

Most of the time, name badge errors occur because people were not thorough in placing their order for them. Taking your time to place them, so that you can ensure all your needs have been met, will help you to cut down on the mistakes that you could be making. Here are some common name badge mistakes and how you can avoid making them: 

  • Overlooking quality. A huge mistake is to be lured by cheap name badges. When you order cheap name badges, you are likely to get cheap quality, too. Keep in mind that name badges are a representation of your company, so you want to ensure they are of high quality. Opt for the highest quality name badges you can get that still fit your budget. The quality is going to make a big difference in how they look, how they feel, and how well they hold up.
  • Not considering font. Too often people forget to consider the font. This goes for both the size and what is written on the name badge. The font needs to be able to be seen well, but not be overwhelming to those looking at it. The font can’t be too fancy either, or you risk people not being able to read it. Opt for something that is simple, straightforward, and in a font that people can easily read and see.
  • Forgetting to check for errors. There’s nothing worse than placing your name badge order only to get it and see there were errors. It’s important to look over the name badges ahead of time to ensure that they are all accurate. The company you are ordering from does not know how your employees spell their names, for example. Take the extra minute to double-check all of the spelling, and even have another person look it over, too, just be on the safe side.
  • Overlooking marketing opportunities. Name badges can have more than just the person’s name on them. If you are not putting more on there, such as a company logo or slogan, you are making a common mistake. Name badges are great marketing tools, so be sure to increase your return on investment by taking the time to review it with an eye toward marketing. What can you do to make it a more effective marketing tool? Adding some color and a logo will often be enough to do the trick.

 Now that you are more familiar with some of the most common name badge mistakes, it will be much easier for you to avoid them. Companies in Australia, and especially those in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth, will find that they can get a greater return on investment if they get the name badges right from the start.
