Dementia Friendly Name Badges

Posted on Dec 10, 2019 in News | Comments Off on Dementia Friendly Name Badges

TweetDementia Friendly Name Badges Dementia Friendly Name Badges or Patient Friendly Name Badges are becoming increasingly popular across the NHS and healthcare sector, with many hospitals replacing staff badges with these highy visible name badges.  Black text on a yellow background is widely considered to be the most readable patient friendly format, using a non fussy font of sufficient size.   Simple fonts such as Arial, Frutiger or Helvetica are preferred as they are much easier to read than serif type fonts like Times Roman or other more fancy fonts.   For maximum impact a high percentage of our patient friendly name badge requests are for a badge featuring just a first name and no surname, this allows for it to be enlarged to a suitable size for easy readability. Whilst for some a name badge featuring a name only on a yellow background entirely meets their requirements, the badges can also feature an organisation logo or company name for further branding and security purposes.  This additional logo may be in the brand colours or also converted to an easy to read black colour on a yellow background inkeeping with the patient friendly name badge format.   Patient Friendly Hello My Name Is Magnetic Name Badges An example of this is our #hellomynameis name badges, where you can have the hello my name is logo printed in black on the yellow background or still keep the standard hello my name is green colours.  If you are part of the NHS* we can also include this logo on your name badges as well as the hospital or trust name if required.  Our entire range of patient friendly name badges can be customised to your exact requirements and as with all our name badges we will produce a proof for your approval, before producing the actual badges to ensure you get the exact badges you want.   Our full range and prices of our Patient Freindly name badges can be see HERE, and as always don’t hesitate to contact us with any special requirements or questions you may have,  we are always more than happy to help and assist.          Stimulating colours like yellow combined with black text are recognised as highly readable, aiding patients and visitors with visual impairments and dementia to be able to easily identify staff names. *To use the NHS logo you must prove that you are part of the NHS or email from a NHS email...

Selecting Magnetic Name Badges

Posted on Jun 16, 2016 in News | Comments Off on Selecting Magnetic Name Badges

TweetUK Name Badge Manufacturer As a UK manufacturer of name badges we are extremely proud to work with an increasing number of diverse customers in fulfilling their name badge requirements.  It’s true there are a number of name badge companies who can fulfil an initial bulk order of badges, but few who are able to fulfill the inevitable replacement name badges or additional name badges for new starters.  Then of the few name badge suppliers who do, most operate a minimum order value or quantity, which means additional name badges are expensive or you need to wait for a certain number of badges before placing an order. Why choose Magnetic Name Badges? Here at Magnetic Name Badges we’ve always recognised the importance of not only fulfilling the larger orders but of equal importance the ongoing commitment to our customers to produce any future orders without charging a premium, or having a minimum order quantity. In fact, we’re so committed to this, we actually give you a 10% discount off any future orders for your name badges and are as happy to produce one badge as we are any given number of badges.  We also offer the same short production timescales, digital proof and outstanding customer service to these orders as we do for orders of hundreds or even thousands of name badges.  In addition to this we also keep digital records of all name badges we’ve ever produced, so regardless of how long it is since you last ordered name badges, obtaining additional or replacement name badges is simply a case of supplying us with the name and where required job title, we can then produce these badges to perfectly match any name badges we’ve supplied previously. If the benefits above don’t convince you to consider magnetic name badges for your name badge requirements, maybe consider that we produce all our badges on site right here in the UK.  This enables us to easily manage stock and order fulfillment and ensures we can produce badges within timescales that other name badge suppliers can’t rival, as well as offering some of the most competitive priced name badges in the marketplace.  We also supply all of our name badges with our triple strength name badge fixing as standard, naturally we can supply any of our badges with pin fixings if this is preferred.   As for our range of name badges we have our plastic name badges, ever popular due to stunning colour reproduction, range of sizes and the low cost.  Plastic name badges are perfect for all manner of businesses and are the number one name badge choice for Nurseries, Schools, Hospitals and the NHS. Our metal name badge range is offered across a number of metal finishes and sizes as well as a custom cut service which is only marginally more expensive than our standard metal badges.  Metal name badges come in the choice of Silver, Gold or White and are extremely popular and ideal for all kinds of businesses, especially popular with Hotels and as badges for conferences and exhibitions. Finally our Domed and Premium Domed are another a popular range, often the first choice for retail orientated businesses or those looking for a traditional framed name badge. Our entire range of name badges are produced in full colour and can feature any logo, name, job title and even picture, all with no set up costs, and no minimum quantity. We are firmly committed in producing great name badges at great prices and in ensuring we can do this for all our customers and all orders irrespective of quantity both...

Tweet Click Here to see our #hello my name is name badges     #hello my name is… Recently we have produced a number of magnetic name badges featuring the above logo for different NHS Hospitals and Medical Practices.  Whenever we produced badges featuring #hello my name is logo we always commented on how nice the logo looked and worked on the different kind of badges we produced it on.  Unfortunately I think its fair to say that as a relatively newcomer to twitter, the #(hashtag) was somewhat lost on us initially. So what’s #hello my name is… all about?  Intrigued by the logo we decided to see if this design was part of some new NHS brand guidelines, however it soon became apparent that this wasn’t the case, and it was actually something much more important than marketing or branding.   #hello my name is… is a campaign started by Kate Granger, aimed to improve patient experience not just in the UK but worldwide.  Kate Granger for those who don’t know, (and plenty now do) is a Doctor and a terminally ill cancer patient, who observed that whilst she was a patient, a significant number of staff looking after her, failed to introduce themselves beforehand.   Kate felt this was fundamentally wrong, and so supported by her husband started the #hello my name is campaign, and quite simply the aim was to promote and remind healthcare professionals, the importance of introductions when delivering care.   Launching the #hello my name is campaign on twitter, Kate’s campaign has gone viral and she has tirelessly worked to make her plight a massive success.  To find out more about Kate and the full story of her #hello my name is campaign we strongly urge you to visit Kate’s website here.  You can also find Kate on Twitter here. Hello my name is… Name Badges We are more than happy to produce name badges using the #hello my name is logo, but please remember its not about wearing a name badge, it’s all about the importance of introductions in delivering care.  I firmly believe it is not just about knowing someone’s name, but it runs much deeper. It is about making a human connection, beginning a therapeutic relationship and building trust. In my mind it is the first rung on the ladder to providing compassionate care. – Kate Granger    See our #hellomynameis name badges by clicking here  ...
