I want to order 20 badges, do I have to design every badge individually?

No. To keeps things simple, we only require you to design the first badge for each design. Once this first badge has been designed additional names and/or job titles can be added in the next step. Once your order has been processed, a graphic designer will look over your design and ensure that any long names fit on the badge and that the overall design is aligned correctly. Also, remember to proof each name to make sure that there aren't any spelling mistakes. Once the order is submitted, it'll go directly into production, so no changes can be made.

Are the badge prices competitive?

We believe our prices to be extremely competitive and do not hide any extra fees like our competitors' websites. There are no hidden fees for doming, personalization, metallic backgrounds or full color designs. The price you see is what you pay!

You can find the badge prices by clicking the Prices tab in the toolbar or do a custom quote by clicking on the Quote tab.

How much do you charge for delivery?

The speed of production and the shipping cost is included together in the shipping & handling fee. We ship all orders via FedEx. Price is determined by the order total.

Are there any setup or design fees?

Here at Name Badges International, we are proud to say that we have absolutely no hidden charges. To keep things simple, all that you pay is the cost of the badge and shipping and handling. That means no setup fees, no proof fees and no design fees!

As a company, we have been in the badge and promotional printing business for more than 30 years, gathering a vast amount of professional knowledge that we can use to help you create the perfect name badge for your company.

Other aspects of promotional printing that we can provide you with include Decorations for Apparel.

Do your name badges have a scratch-proof protective dome?

All of our name badges are domed with a scratch-resistant epoxy resin. Not only is the plastic coating scratch-proof, but it also protects the badge. This protection helps to keep your logo looking bright and clear, preserving each of your design's vibrant colors for years of faithful service. These badges are recommended for indoors as they are UV sensitive.

Do you supply a digital proof of the badges before you produce them?

When designing your name badges on-line, you will be given the option to save a proof of your design that includes all of the details on the badge. This proof includes just one design. Resellers can also save a blind proof of their badge to show prospective customers that doesn't include the NBI logo or contact information. Due to software changes, we are unable to provide a proof of all badges before production. We recommend when designing badges, to set up the individual proof with the longest name. All additional badges will be replicated with the same artwork and layout.

At what stage in the order process do you take payment?

Payment for web orders are taken at the time that they are submitted. Creating designs and setting up a catalog are all completely free of charge. You can even save a proof of your design for free.

How do you print the name badges?

We digitally print using a high resolution 4 color process to print all logos, text and solid background colors of the badges. For more information on colors, see our Technical page.

What are your Executive name badges made from?

Our Executive name badges are made from metal in a choice of gold or silver-effect finishes giving that premium look that looks great on suits and tailored jackets. Our Executive name badges can have a background of brushed gold, brushed silver, white or any other color that you wish provide. All of our badges are protected by a domed resin finish.

What are your Prestige, Standard and Oval name badges made from?

Our Prestige, Standard and Oval name badges are made from injection molded recyclable, ABS plastic for excellent strength and durability. Our Prestige, Oval and Standard name tags can have a background of brushed gold, brushed silver, white or any other color that you wish to provide.
