There is a wide variety of badge clips that can be used to fasten a photo ID card or badge holder to a lanyard, badge reel, and other badge accessories. Since there are many different badge clips that are suited for the different needs you may have, it can sometimes be tricky to identify the subtle differences between various badge clips.
Badge clips tend to vary by the following:
- the length of strap they are attached to
- the style of the clip
- the type of plastic used to create the strap
Here’s a handy guide that highlights the unique qualities of our most popular badge clips:
