Not quite sure which stamp you want? Here are some great ideas to help you narrow down which kind of stamp you need and how to put your new stamp to use. Part 1 is for all the parents out there who might be looking for a little extra help to organize their day.

Don’t worry. We’ve got your back! Stamp your name, address, and phone number on all your kids’ clothes, towels, and jerseys so you never have to worry about losing them again.

2. Mark your kids’ lunch bags

3. Mark your kids’ backpacks

Many parents get frustrated with kids who have a habit of forgetting important things (like backpacks) in strange places. If your child does this, you might want to consider stamping your child’s backpack with their name, address, and phone number.

4. Mark your kids’ school supplies

Some parents might be surprised how often school supplies go missing. Mark the larger items such as notebooks and folders with your child’s name to ensure they never get lost or mixed up with anyone else’s. You can also go one step further and stamp the school subject such as Math, Science, or English on the folder or notebook to help keep your child organized.

The Benefits of Custom Name Badges For Office Professionals

employee name badges

Managing an office can be challenging. There are so many details to remember and consider! The experts here at the Rubber Stamp Station are here to help. One of our favorite products for office professionals is our custom name badge. There are many benefits to using custom name badges in both office and retail settings.

Rubber Stamp Station carries two different sizes of name badges:

1 x 3″ Name Badges

This name badge has room for up to 4 lines of text. There are 2 edge finish options: rounded corners with no bevel or square corners with beveled edge. You may add your own logo or choose a graphic from our graphics library. You may choose from three fasteners: pin back, magnetic, or pocket.

1.5 x 3″ Name Badges

This name badge has room for up to 6 lines of text. This also has 2 edge finish options as well as an optional logo or graphic. You may choose from three fasteners: pin back, magnetic, or pocket.

1. Security

Using name badges that state the employee’s name and job title allows managers to know with a quick glance if an employee is somewhere they are not supposed to be. This is especially important for employees working in restricted areas. Name badges are an unobtrusive way to track employee movements and hold everyone accountable for their actions.

Our 1.5 x 3″ name badge would work best for this purpose as it leaves room for multiple lines of text, allowing you to include the employee’s name, job title, and/or relevant clearance level for security purposes.

2. Engage with Customers

In a retail setting, it can sometimes be hard for customers to tell who is an employee and who is another customer. This problem is easily solved with a custom name badge! Seeing a name badge will automatically clue the customer in that this is an employee and make the customer more confident when initiating conversation.

Both our 1 x 3″ and 1.5 x 3″ name badges are appropriate for this purpose.

3. Corporate Branding

In today’s competitive market, corporate branding is becoming even more important. Including a name badge as part of your employee dress code helps build a more consistent brand image. It also helps with brand awareness. When employees leave the building for lunch or go to a store on their way home from work, chances are they won’t remember to take their name badge off. If their name badge has your company logo on it in addition to the employee’s name, each time that name badge is seen in public, it spreads brand awareness.

Order your new name badges online today or give us a call at 1-(850)-7STAMPS. We’re here to assist in any way we can!
