Knowledge is Power!
Name tags that come in different shapes can make your business and your logo stand out from the crowd. In the case of the aforementioned tooth-shaped name tags, you don't even have to read the name of the employee or squint to see the company logo: the tooth shape says it all and you know you are where you should be when you show up for a root canal appointment! The same can be said for veterinary name tags - aside from the fact that you'll probably know where you are by the number of happy, tail-wagging dogs, you'll know right away if you are in the vet's office by the bone-shaped or paw-shaped name tags this type of office can purchase. And, the plumber who shows up with a truck-shaped name tag will get an instant smile from the homeowner who is standing knee-deep in water from the leaking pipe the plumber came to fix (probably it will be the only smile he'll get all day long, too!). You can show your love for your customers (or your patients if you are a doctor's office) with a heart-shaped name tag and you can promote your expertise in selling homes with a house-shaped real estate name badge. You can even show your customers who your top employees are by having them wear star-shaped name tags!
If the tooth-shaped name tags are too casual for your office environment, you can still break away from the traditional rectangular name badge with a circular name badge or with an oval name tag. And, a diamond-shaped metal name tag in silver or bronze says your company is professional as well as trendy.
The majority of these types of name badges can be made with a variety of background colors and many different imprint colors. Your logo can still be copied onto the name badge and they generally come with a pin-type of backing for easy fastening to uniforms or can be made with a magnetic strip on the back of the badge to keep your clothing fresh and hole-free.
Mickey Arledge of Name-tags.net says that many name badge suppliers have stock shapes of name tags on hand, but if you are not into something like tooth-shaped name tags, he says that custom-shaped name badges can usually be made, too. The plumber that was mentioned earlier can just as easily sport a wrench-shaped name badge as a truck-shaped one. And that custom shape is what's going to separate him from the crowd. Even in another setting, employees wearing their tooth-shaped name tags are going to generate interest (and the inevitable question: "Do you work for a dentist?") which can help bring more customers in your direction.
Your name tag can say much more about your company than just the logo and employee name - you can shape your company image with an unusual shape of name badge. Remember, the next time you need a name tag don't settle for ordinary - go with something extraordinary!
