Name Tag Holder Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between your Preferred & Standard Holders?

First the similarities: both use stronger edge-welded seams for more durability than competing models, and both are sized perfectly for easy inserting. Our Preferred Holders use 30% thicker vinyl than the competition, so they won't curl or crack during multi-day meetings. Our Standard Value Vinyl Holders are as thick and sturdy as most companies' premium holders yet are priced like their budget models.

What size insert should I order to pair with my holder?

Just order an insert that's the same size as your holder. We've already built in the room you need for hassle-free assembly. And our selection of inserts is just as vast as the one for our holders.

What type of attachment should I order for my holders?

We're glad you asked that question! Because our Guide to Holder Attachments lays out the specific advantages of each of our 12 types of attachments.

What are the concerns about magnetic attachments?

Magnets may interfere with the performance of pacemakers and items with magnetic information on them such as credit cards, room keys and diskettes (note: USB flash drives are not affected by magnets). If you use any of these items while you're wearing the magnet, please be cautious. We also suggest you keep a few standard combo clips handy in case you have attendees who can't or won't use magnetic fasteners.

Do you offer holders that come with a lanyard or necklace already attached?

Yes. We have a good selection of Pre-Assembled Combos.

Do you have any tips for organizing my holders after assembly?

For organizing and shipping your name tags, consider our OneWay® Name Tag Cases. Each one holds up to 50 name tags securely through transport and serves as an organized tray at the registration table. With our cases you can organize your name tags at the office, ship them to the meeting site and be ready to register attendees as soon as you lift the lid. Also, among the many benefits of our Namebadges to Go® service is a free OneWay® Name Tag Case.

For even faster organizing, consider adding Alpha Tags alphabetic divider cards to the OneWay® Name Tag Case

Can I color-code my attendees using their holders?

Yes you can! And it's a great way to classify and organize attendees without going through the expense of custom holders or multi-color insert pricing. We offer options in Color Bar, Translucent, Translucent Frame and Color/Title Bar models so you can keep track of guests while keeping your budget in check. Check out our Color Coded Holder options.

Why should I choose a custom-printed holder?
For security, a custom badge holder is nearly impossible to replicate–and that keeps unwanted guests out of your meeting. A custom-printed holder can also pump up the sales force, let guests know your sponsor is a premium provider or just give your meeting a one-of-a-kind look. Best of all, we can replicate a photograph, match your company color to perfection or add any titles you may need. Get all the details on our custom holder program by calling 1-888-354-7868 or emailing us at mailto: sales@pcnametag.com.

Do you offer any eco-friendly holders?

Yes we do. From a recycled vinyl option to a holder that's completely biodegradable, you'll find our full selection of greener name tag holders here. And at prices that let you go green without putting your budget in the red.

Top load or side load: how do I decide?

Budget and function are the two factors to consider. Side loaders are a great value and a perfect choice when price is a serious issue. While top loaders run about 15-30% more than side-load models, they are more flexible and comfortable for the wearer, a little easier to load and hold the insert a bit more securely.

Just pair your holder size with your insert size.
It's that easy.
Our pre-assembled combos save you both
time and money.
Classify and organize your attendees with color-coded holders.
Side-loading and top-loading holders each have their own advantages.
