Knowledge is Power!
Magnetic name tags are a great resource for today's employee. They help you keep your clothing fresh and hole-free through the use of the removable magnetic strip on the back of the badge. The front portion of the two-part name tag (the part with your name on it!) has a stainless steel bar attached to the back side of it (stainless steel means no rusting even after many uses). This piece is worn on the outside of your suit or blouse. A magnetic strip is placed behind the fabric of the blouse or suit and pressed up against the metal strip of the name tag, and voila! The two tag parts adhere to each other through your clothing, just like magic! No fuss, no holes.
If you are in the market for magnetic name tags, Mickey Arlege of Name-tags.Net suggests you check out the number of magnets that come with the name tag you are considering. Vendors can offer a cheaper name tag if they only use one magnet, but a single magnet doesn't provide staying power and that means the tag will likely fall off at an undesirable time - say, when the boss happens to be going over your annual review with you. Another thing to look for is if the strips on the magnetic name tags are encased in plastic to help prevent the name badge from slipping. Higher quality name badges have that feature. Name-tags.Net only offers the plastic-coated, three-magnet strips so customers can be assured they are getting strength, maximum holding power, and durability in their magnetic name tags.
Mickey Arledge says there is one other important caveat to consider when looking for magnetic name tags: "Magnetic name tags are great but we must issue a word of warning - if you have a pacemaker please do not wear a magnetic name tag. This could interfere with your pacemaker's operation. Also please keep the magnet away from the hard drive on your computer or disk where you have data stored. The magnetic strip can damage data storage."
Magnetic name tags are a great asset to employees - they provide an easy way to attach a name badge to clothing without damaging the fabric and they stay put throughout the day. For more information about magnetic name tags, please visit www.name-tags.net or call them at 1-888-754-8337 today!
