The Benefits of Magnetic Name Badge Holders

Written by

For an easy-to-use and convenient alternative to the standard lanyard and badge reel combination, magnetic badge holders and accessories allow you to securely hold your badge or ID card to shirt pockets and belts without using clips or pins.

We carry a broad variety of rugged badge holders and magnetic accessories. They provide fast and hassle-free attachment and removal from a belt or clothing without pins or clips that can damage more delicate fabrics or surfaces.

Before purchasing your magnetic name badge holder, it’s important to know whether your badge design has a horizontal or a vertical orientation. While some badge holders can display a badge for either orientation, others are designed to be worn a specific way.

Here are a few ideas to get you started and some comments directly from customers who have used these products:

    Good afternoon! I’m very happy to have “happened upon” your site. I work at Duke University Hospital, and like all staff, must wear an ID badge. Currently, the bookstore only sells lanyards and retractable badges with an alligator clip. Unfortunately, the lanyard makes the back of my neck break out, and the clip stretches the collars of my Duke shirts. I’ve been searching for small, round magnets to “rig” mine into being a magnetically-attached retractable badge. I plan to order from you, so I wanted to confirm that the smallest amount I can order is the pack of 50 (I only need one, but I understand if that’s your lowest salable quantity). Thanks for your time, and I look forward to your response.
