Dementia Friendly Name Badges

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

Dementia 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. patient friendly magnetic name badges

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.  

NHS Badges Patient FriendlyOur 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 address 

Selecting Magnetic Name Badges

UK Name Badge Manufacturer

uk name badge manufacturerAs 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.

Magnetic Badge Fixings


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 now and in the future.

Magnetic Name Badge Hello My Name Is#hello my name is

#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

The Same Great Name Badges and Prices

It is with thanks to our fantastic loyal existing, and  new customers that we have recently moved to larger premises.

Badges with magnets Now with well over 4 times more space than our previous premises we are much better equipped to offer the same, (if not better) high level of customer service that our customers deserve.

We have also invested in our production area to ensure that we can make this move without needing to increase our prices.

So whats the catch?

Well unfortunately there is always one, but its only a small one, we have had to change our telephone number (the old number is diverted though) to 01782 479322.  Rest assured though our new telephone system is way more sophisticated than our old set up, so once again this change was made with our customers best interest at heart.

We have worked incredibly hard to ensure our move has had minimal, if any impact upon our day to day service, and are delighted to report we are now fully operational from our new premises.

Name Badges for Events

Corporate Event Name Badges

Every year we produce countless name badges for all kinds of corporate events and conferences, and for all manner of industries.   In this time we’ve noticed a few things that tend to be consistent when it comes to name badges for events.

  1. There is a requirement to cater for a few last minute additions.
  2. Timescales are normally pretty tight.
  3.  The name badges must be delivered before the event.

 If you think the last one is pretty obvious, (and we agree it is) you would be amazed at the amount of customers we get, simply because their previous name badge supplier failed on this obvious requirement. 

We perfectly understand the requirements and we know there are a million and one other things to organise, and not just the event name badges.

 We offer two ranges of name badges that perfectly cater for all these requirements; these are our plastic name badges and our metal name badges.

plastic magnetic name badges Plastic Magnetic Name Badges

Our  range of Plastic Name Badges are perfect for even the most complex and colourful name badge designs.

Digitally Printed Name Badges

Unlike traditional screen printed or engraved name badges, our plastic name badges are digitally printed using the latest digital printing processes and technology. Digital printing offers a number of important benefits over these more traditional name badge manufacturing processes.

Full colour without limitations

The full range of our name badges are digitally printed using a CMYK process, offering photographic quality images, tones and gradients that simply cannot be reproduced by screen printing or engraving methods.

Same Low costs, regardless of how many colours

The CMYK process is a full colour process and unlike screen printing the cost prices doesn’t increase with the number of colours. With our name badges the price remains the same, regardless of the number of colours or complexity of your name badge design.

Flexible with a Quick turnaround

As there is no need to produce any screens or dies our magnetic name badges can be produced much quicker than traditional methods, without any set up costs or origination costs to pay.  The digital printing process we employ is also a more flexible process where amendments to artwork or colours are more easily accommodated, no need change inks, wash off or produce more costly screens or dies.

Plastic Name Tags

Plastic Name Badges

Our Plastic Name Badges arguably offer the greatest amount of customisation of any of our name badges.

Our Plastic Name Badges offer stunning vibrant glossy colour reproduction, and the full face of the badge can be printed. This means that borderless designs can be reproduced with ease and also designs that bleed off the edges of the badge.  The background of the badge is naturally white but again this can easily be changed to any printable colour.

And if that’s not enough to convince you that you should take a close look at our plastic name badges, they also benefit from being our lowest cost name badges as well.

Posted by on Feb 9, 2013 in News, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Triple Strength Name Badge Magnets

strong badge magnetsIntroducing our strongest name badge magnet yet.

At Magnetic Name Badges we have never had any complaints about either the quality or the strength of our badge magnets.  Despite this, and in a true belt and braces fashion we decided, not to rest on our laurels and are delighted to announce our brand new triple strength name badge magnets.

3 that’s the magnet number

Yes, you’ve guessed it, our new triple strength name badge magnets now feature 3 incredibly strong magnets, making it not only our strongest name badge fixing to date, but arguably the best magnetic name fixing currently available in the UK.

Typically magnetic name badge fixings feature two magnets, one at each end of the fastening, now at magnetic name badges we’ve gone one step further and added an extra magnet right in between the two.

Not content with purely improving the strength of our magnetic badges we have revamped and improved the overall appearance of the magnetic name badge fixings and all of its features. 

Our magnetic name badges fixings are now plastic coated for extra cleanliness and durability, our magnetic name badges feature an upgraded metal fastening strip and the name badge adhesion has been evaluated and uprated.
