How Do You Want to Wear Your Badge?

Written by

You have four main options when wearing your ID badge: a lanyard, badge holder, badge reel, or badge clip.

For those that want badges to be visible at all times, lanyards are a great option. Many choose to customize the lanyard with a logo or business name, which can also be given away as a promotional item. Another great feature for lanyards is the break-away safety option that works well in manufacturing environments.

Are your badges in harsh environments or do you need a way to hang your badges? How about a badge holder? Do you want to be able to distinguish visitor, contractors, or full time employees? Colored badge holders are a great way to do it. Do you have more than one badge? Use a multi-card badge holder and hold all your cards in one holder.

Are you using controlled access cards and need to swipe your cards over a reader? Badge reels have an extending sting that allow the badge to be attached to your body but then stretch to access the card reader. Badge reels can also be customized to display your company logo.

Last, but not least, the simplest way to wear your cards is a badge clip. You can easily loop the strap through a punch on a card and clip the badge to a shirt pocket or collar.

    I am looking for a badge card holder that slips into a suit coat pocket. One part slides into pocket, the other side has the badge in it – it hangs on outside of pocket?

    Hi Aaron,

    Magnetic badge holders might be a good option for you. One part slips into the pocket while the other hangs outside of the pocket. A magnet secures the badge holder in place. If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to call an ID expert at (800) 321-4405!
