With the development of Badgetec’s new Contour Clip, badges and personal tags can be worn comfortably and safely on most garments. In particular, the new “paperclip-like” clip allows individuals to attach the personal tag higher to any edge of the garment, such as the collar, lapel or pocket (shown in attached photograph). As the primary function of a name badge is to visually communicate names & QR Codes during face-to-face events, wearing ones badge near eye-level is important. Without a plastic holder, badges and personal tags are very lightweight (only 3 grams) and easy to attach.
Most people who wear name badges want their name presented clearly to others, and if appropriate, they will attach it to the upper part of their garment. In particular, women recognize the safe design of the Contour Clip (no pins-no holes) and tend to attach it to their collar, pocket or lapel without a second thought. Businesswomen, who frequently refuse to wear name badges because of previous experiences, often say that they appreciate the new featherweight design.
Decades ago when the standard fabrics for women’s garments were cotton and wool, pins, adhesives and bulldog clips were not a serious clothing-damage issue. But with the developed of synthetic and more delicate women’s fabrics, a better badging system has now resolved this issue.
Badgetec developed the Contour Clip to provide faster, easier and more eco-friendly issuing of badges and personal tags. With the Contour Clip ‘paperclip’ attachment, it slides on by tactile-feel alone. The badges are made of durable cardstock or white polyester (waterproof) which require no plastic holder. Standard 8.5x11” diecut sheets have slots punched at the top of each tag (round, rectangular or shapes) for attaching the clip. In addition, these standard size sheets can be printed using Microsoft Word (AVERY) templates on most office laser/inkjet printers. One then simply separates the badges from the sheet and issues them with less work.
