When it comes to events and other settings where businesses are highly represented, name badges are a high priority. Since your name badges are often a person’s first impression of you or your business, it makes them very important. Unclear information or an unprofessional design doesn’t provide you with the professional recognition or representation you need. If you are trying to network with peers or capture the attention of potential clients, a poorly designed name badge can deter them. At Name Tag Pros, we can help you create your perfect name tag. Here are the five main factors to consider during the designing process.
1. Choose Your Colors Wisely
The colors you choose play a critical role in the design of a professional name tag. If you are using a full-color logo, you’ll want a background color that makes your logo stand out. Choose colors that match your brand so that you protect consistency. Remember that not all colors will match your brand. You want to focus on complementary colors or contrasting colors to get the most effect.
2. Use a Readable Font
A name tag is more important than just a fashionable accessory. Even though it should look good, it displays very important information about your business. It’s essential that all of the elements be easy to read. The font should be large enough to allow for socially distancing and still be readable. Some fancier fonts look nice but are not easy to read. Readability is an important factor in name tag design.
3. Make Room for Longer Names
You can’t design name tags with a single name in mind. If you allow enough room for “Chris” you will be okay. However, you don’t want “Christopher” to be addressed only as “Christoph” because there wasn’t enough room allotted for his entire name. The placeholder should allow adequate space for names of all lengths without sacrificing aesthetics.
4. Logo Design
Your logo is the most important feature of your name badges. It should stand out as well as be visually appealing. Just a quick glance should be adequate for identifying the business you are representing.
5. Maintain Your Brand
At Name Tag Pros, we’ll make sure your name badges have a professional design to help you attract new customers and connect with other professionals. The design should clearly represent your brand and business. Make sure your colors, fonts, and other design elements align with your logo and brand. You don’t have to go overboard, keep it tasteful and professional.
