You need the right type of name tag for every kind of event. (Think shoes!)

Why do you need six different types of name tags? Think about your shoes: you wear different pairs for work, nights out, long walks, etc. Same goes for name tags: one that's fine for an informal meeting won't work at a high-security event. In fact, each of our six styles of name tags is especially well suited for a certain kind of meeting. The savvy planner stocks each type in her toolkit.

So let the name tag specialists quickly guide you to the best kind of name badge for every one of your events!
