Professional data checking is an optional service that we offer which can be added to any order. Our professional data check includes the following:
- print data (color space, image resolution and erroneous data)
- format and dimensions, print areas and cropping
- orientation and typesetting (including whether long names should be located in the print area)
Once our professional data check has been successfully completed, provided your data conforms to our specifications, your name badges will go straight to print. Should any discrepancies or erroneous data be picked up at this stage, we will contact you immediately. You will then have the opportunity to resend your print data or approve the data you’ve already supplied. In the latter case, we accept no liability for the print result. In the event of the subsequent delivery of print data, please be advised that in such situations this may delay the delivery of your name tags.
Request a design is a chargeable add-on service and can be requested using our order form under Service. Our graphics team will design your name badges and label your name cards. Send us your logo and your list of names in Excel and you will receive custom layouts. After approval, we will print your name cards and assemble your badges. Your name badges will be delivered ready-to-wear for immediate use. Our service includes:
- 3 proposed layouts in accordance with your CI guidelines (all colors and fonts, multiple lines)
- printing of name cards and assembly of badges
- PDF printing sheets with logo and name fields for reprinting name cards (not available for badges with "complete" in the name)
Look for name badges and start your online configuration: Decide on a suitable model and choose a printing option (e.g. printed on paper or printed on front panel). To find out more about the differences between the types of printing, and for further assistance, go to Labeling. Lastly, choose your custom size, color and fastening, add the quantity required and then either place your order or do the labeling online beforehand ("Personalize"). If you have any questions or need any help with configuration, please do not hesitate to contact our service team on +49 (0) 4102-8066-0.
You need to make sure you include the right printing sheets with your order. You can use our free Microsoft® Word print templates for the labeling, or label your name badges online. Choose the appropriate badge under Configure model and select "Personalize". Once you’ve designed your name badges, you will receive a downloadable print template for your printing sheets. Our Assembly videos show you the easy way to insert the printed name cards into your name tags.
Configure your name tag and then select "Personalize". Before you start designing, click on "Layouts" to select a layout. Here, you’ll find various layout proposals with varying numbers of lines for details such as name, position or department. Once you’ve selected a template, you can customize the alignment of the predefined image and text elements and drag them with the mouse to suit your design concept (depending on the badge type). Next, upload a finished list of names in the form of an Excel table and assign the required personal names and job descriptions to your name badges.
Upload your logo (or multiple picture files) using the "Upload image" function in our online labeling tool. Ideally as a vector-based svg or pdf file, 300dpi in the CMYK color space. Please pay attention to the picture quality of your uploaded file (indicated by a green or a red smiley). Alternatively, you can order your name badges straight away and send the file later by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upload your logo (or multiple picture files) using the "Upload image" function in our online labeling tool. Ideally as a vector-based svg or pdf file, 300dpi in the CMYK color space. We prefer color-separated vector data as this allows us to achieve the best print quality.
Please note that the online labeling tool can only display the colors of your logo in the RGB color space. This corresponds to the digital representation on the screen, so that the colors cannot be represented true to the original and true to color. Please check the downloadable release print PDF on the print preview page. This corresponds to the original view of your final print data.
When uploading, please pay attention to the image quality of your uploaded file (green or red smiley). If you do not have any vector data, we can (depending on the printing technique) also process high-resolution graphics.
Please upload your logo/image in these formats:
- PDF/X-4 file (*.pdf) (recommended)
- SVG vector file (*.svg)
- JPEG image (*.jpg,*.jpeg)
- PNG image (*.png)
- GIF image (*.gif)
Size: max 20MB
Color space: CMYK
Alternatively, you can also order your name badges directly (place them in the shopping cart without labeling) and send the data later by e-mail to email@example.com (also .eps and .ai data). We are happy to check the data in advance for feasibility.
Some restrictions apply to uploading SVG files. Please note that one of the following settings will result in an error message when uploading a logo:
Unsupported SVG properties
References to external URLs are not supported. These can be images, fonts, etc.
Animated or scripting elements: 'animate', 'animateColor', 'animateMotion', 'animateTransform', "script', 'mpath', 'set' SVG filters: 'feBlend', 'feColorMatrix', 'feComponentTransfer', 'feComposite' , 'feConvolverMatrix', 'feDiffuseLighting', 'feDisplaycementMap', 'feDistantLight', 'feFlood', 'feFuncA', 'feFuncB', 'feFuncG', 'feFuncR', 'feGaussianBlur', 'feImage', 'feMerge', ' feMergeNode', 'feMorphology', 'feOffset', 'fePointLight', 'feSpecularLighting', 'feSpotLight', 'feTile', 'feTurbulence', 'filter'
Other elements: 'cursor', 'foreignObject', 'vkern'
Some CSS rules: Example: '@import', '@font-face' 'font-variant' is only supported with the keyword 'small-caps' and only for fonts with the property 'smcp'. Combinations of values of property 'text-decoration.; The 'rotate' property for 'textPath'.; The 'xlink:href' property. The 'unicode-bidi' property is only supported for TrueType/OpenType fonts that contain the required table for bidi text layout.
Please ensure an optimum resolution of at least 300 dpi. A green or red smiley shows you whether the image quality of your uploaded file is sufficient for printing. If your logo has a red smiley, it is not suitable for printing. Please select a different file format or contact us on +49 (0) 4102-8066-0.
Your name badges are printed digitally. The printing of spot colors is only possible to a very limited extent. Spot colors are automatically converted to the CMYK color space. Please notify any spot colors (or gold/silver colors) as HKS/Pantone color codes so we can simulate them in the 4-colour color space (CMYK).
Whatever the badge type, text lines cannot be modified as our production process requires predefined elements. In the case of logo print badges, this prevents elements being hidden or accidentally overprinted. If you would like to change the position of the text lines, we recommend you choose a different predefined design or another size of badge.
The flat-rate fee of 29 € applies to the machine set-up and covers production costs for custom logo printing. This service is not dependent on the number of items and is charged once per order/logo. The number of logo colors also has no bearing on the all-in rate and even color gradients are an option (UV direct-to-substrate digital printing).
Most standard printers can only process complete sheets of paper, so we recommend loading paper printing sheets in your printer once only. If partly-used printing sheets with some name cards removed are put back into the printer, there is a significant risk of causing a paper blockage. We are continuously working on finding new and efficient solutions to this and to bringing them in line with production costs. Tip: if you only need a small number of name cards and there are still bla nk cards on the sheet, you could print 2 identical name cards for each employee so you always have a spare one handy just in case. Please note that the foil printing sheets for our aluline-plus® models can be used multiple times.
badgepoint® name-tag holders are manufactured from high-quality plastic. This way we can guarantee that the weight of each name tag is reduced to a minimum. The front panels of all badges with "alu" in the name are made out of matt aluminum. The aluline-plus® series is made entirely of metal and is protected by a crystal-clear acrylic glass cover. In addition to these, you can also choose from acrylic glass name badges and badges for events made of recyclable PET plastic (our forum model).
No, we only supply printed front panels. The name tags in the "complete" series are always supplied printed as well. However, you can order name-badge models without printing which are designed for self-labeling – the polar® classic, for example, with a card insert, or the aluline-plus® system with printable film inserts.
We can only manufacture supplementary orders for "complete" name tags in quantities of 5 or more. Unfortunately, for production reasons, it is not possible to order just 1 item.
In the case of large quantities, it may be possible to produce custom surfaces and colors, such as name badge holders in your corporate color, subject to favorable special terms. We offer individual spot colors and metal shades starting from quantities of just 1,000. Other options include screen printing and bespoke contours. Our sales team will be happy to give you advice over the phone on +49 (0) 4102-8066-0.
Please refer to the following statement from the German Federal Office for Radiation Protection: "Wearing small permanent magnets, such as magnetic name tags is, as a rule, not harmful to health." (see statement at: https://www.bfs.de/EN/"). The patented smag® magnetic fastening system is unique on the market. By using magnets in both parts of the name badge, a closed magnetic field is created when the badge is fastened, minimizing outward radiation.
Yes, under Accessories you can order Spare parts such as counter-magnets in packs of 10. You can swap over the "standard" magnets and the "extra strong" version on your badge whenever you like – both are universal and fit all models of name badge with a magnetic fixing.
The color indicates the adhesive force of the magnet. The "standard" smag® model (in blue) is very strong and therefore suitable for normal fabrics. The "extra strong" smag® model (in black) has double the strength of the "standard" model and is particularly suited to heavy fabrics or extreme demands. For more information, go to Fastening.
Both products are made of plastic. The aluminum series is either galvanized or covered with a high-quality gold lacquer. The difference in weight resulting from this is negligible. Badges in the "alu-print" and "alu-complete" series also feature aluminum front panels, which makes them a few grams heavier. These weight differences are not noticeable for the badge wearer.
First, configure your name badge. Next, copy the article number and paste it into the Free sample application form. Fill in the delivery address details and submit the form. Our sales team will then get in touch with you and will welcome your feedback on how you like the badge.
