How to Create the Best Event Badge Ever

The name badge is typically the first thing attendees see, paving the way for the phenomenal event ahead. pc/nametag’s laminated plastic Event Badge embodies a premium look and feel that truly stands out in the crowd.

Why It’s Important

Some planners consider name tags to be a labor-intensive task they could live without, or they forget to consider tags at all until the last minute. The best part about the Event Badge is that you design it any way you want and pc/nametag does all the rest.

The Event Badge is ideal for meetings and conferences, but it also makes a great VIP and backstage pass for concerts, a sideline credential for sporting events, a staff badge for training activities, or an all-access pass for food festivals – the list goes on and on.

How it Works

With pc/nametag’s state-of-the-art print capabilities, they re-create your logos, artwork, and photos in vivid detail both on the front and back of the badge. Plus, when provided the attendee list, they can personalize each name tag, include barcodes or QR codes, and even print event maps and agendas on the back side.

And for a finishing touch, seven different surfaces will heighten your attendee’s visual and tactile experience: original gloss, and new clear, satin, soft touch, metallic, foil accent, and holographic overlay. With a choice of eight sizes, five attachments and the option of slotting the badge and pairing it with a lanyard, the choices may seem endless and can even overwhelm the most detail-oriented planner!

The Process

To simplify the process and get the most out of an Event Badge, event specialists explain your options, prepare a quote, and communicate your needs to the art staff and services area. They can make great suggestions, brainstorm ideas, and create a customized registration material package. You can also order free samples of Event Badges, particularly to see and feel for yourself the exquisite full-color printing and finishes.

After you’ve decided on your Event Badge design, pc/nametag generates a quote, and all you need to do is upload your artwork to the website or send via email to a specialist. If you need a template, they can email you everything you need. Professional graphic designers will receive and modify your artwork to fit within the parameters of the products you have purchased. Once complete, you’ll give your final approval and your order will move on to the services area for production.

In just three days, service technicians produce your Event Badge in the quantity you requested, plus coordinate and assemble any add-ons such as lanyards and ribbons. Then, pc/nametag ships your Event Badge order to you or directly to your event.


When it’s show time, your attendees will be wearing an original Event Badge designed by you but facilitated and produced by pc/nametag down to your last detail. Not only will it set the tone for the event, but it will serve as a memento of your attendees’ experience.
