Gold Magnetic Metal Name Badges up close and personal

brushed gold magnetic name badges Find our more about our 72 x 36 mm brushed gold name badge from our popular range of metal name badges.

Whilst it’s fair to say that our brushed gold badges aren’t quite as popular as our brushed silver name badges,  they look equally as stunning especially when printed in full colour.

The metallic gold finish adds that touch of class and elegance, whilst the brushed effect tones it down enough ensuring it’s not too flashy, or in your face.

If it’s class, elegance and professionalism you’re looking to portray with your name badges, our brushed gold name badges have to be a serious contender.

72 x 36mm Gold Metal Magnetic Name Badge Specifications

Gold Metal Name BadgeWith an overall badge size of 72 x 36mm the badge also features a subtle bevel set 2mm from the inside edge, giving the name badge an effective print area of 68 x 32mm.

Made from durable, lightweight yet strong aluminum and with a badge thickness of less than 1mm (excluding magnetic name badge fixing) our metal name badges are the lightest name badges we currently produce, with the 72 x 36 metal name badge weighing in at just 16 grams.  The 72 x 36mm metal name badge corners are rounded to offer a professional appearance, and also to ensure the badge features no sharp points.

Like all our magnetic name badges our brushed gold name badges can be produced in full vivid colour.

Unlike inferior name badges that are surface printed or simply feature a sticker, at magnetic name badges we permanently dye your badge design right into the face of  our metal badges for maximum durability.  This process ensures that your badge designs are permanent and can’t be pecked or scratched off, in fact you can’t even feel the dyed part of the badge.

Magnetic Name Badge Expert Advice

We can’t print white onto any of our badges, so if your badges feature white as part of your design this will not be printed, any white in your name badge design will actually be the background colour of your choosen badge.

On our Gold metal name badges, colours darker than the actual gold badge colour work best this can be likened or actually reproduced by printing out your design onto gold coloured paper, the outcome of this is essentially the same as what will be reproduced by us on your gold metal name badges.

The gold background colour of the badge can affect the overall colour of your design, exactly the same as if you printed your chosen name badge design onto gold coloured paper.

Due to the dye process used and the gold colour of the name badges we aren’t able to perfectly match pantone match colours on our gold name badges, however we can get very close

Low cost name badges

Posted by on Feb 16, 2012 in News | Comments Off on Low cost name badges

Why choose plastic name badges?

If your looking for the lowest priced name badges then our plastic name badges are our cheapest option and represent fantastic value for money.

Low cost doesn’t mean low quality

Our plastic name badges are made from high quality FRP (Fibre Reinforced Plastic) which is commonly used in the aerospace, marine and automotive industry and is extremely durable and virtually indestructible under normal use.

The face of the undecorated plastic badge is bright white and glossy in appearance and as with all our name badges this can be printed in full colour and can feature any logo or text, including individual names and job titles.

Name badge printing in full colour

The term printing is somewhat misleading as our plastic name badges aren’t actually printed, but are produced using an innovative process involving specialised dyes, pressure and heat.

The name badge designs are reproduced using specialised dyes and paper, and then using intense heat and pressure, the dye is transformed from a liquid form to a gas that permeates the plastic name badge.  Once cooled the dye solidifies leaving a durable permanent image.  This process is so effective if you look very carefully at the sides of a full colour plastic name badge you can actually see that the dye has penetrated way below the surface layer of the badge.  This is far superior to printing directly onto the name badges as the image cannot be scratched off and is much more hard wearing.

Cost effective functional name badges

Plastic name badges we believe are the perfect choice where function and cost are both key, allowing you to have a full colour name badge completely personalised with a magnetic fixing at an incredibly low price.








Name badges with no minimum quantities

Posted by on Feb 4, 2012 in News | Comments Off on Name badges with no minimum quantities

It’s important when you choose your name badge supplier to consider their charges and policies when it comes to minimum quantities and repeat orders.

This may not seem relevant when placing your initial order, particularly if you are purchasing  a number of name badges, or name badges for all of your staff.   But what happens if you recruit a new member of staff? or one of your staff members loses their name badge? then it does become relevant.

Whilst lots of name badge suppliers claim to have no minimum quantities, many actually charge premiums and hidden set up fees, which makes purchasing replacement badges and single badges extremely expensive.

Magnetic Name Badges offer 10% off replacement name badges!!

Here at Magnetic Name Badges we don’t believe in charging excessive fee’s for replacement name badges or small orders, all name badge orders are welcome, regardless of quantity.  We are always open and honest and all our prices are clearly advertised, so you know exactly what you will be paying up front even if you do require just one badge, we have no set up costs, and we actually offer a 10% discount off the advertised prices for replacement name badges.

We want to build up a great long term working relationship with all our customers and we want you to know that you can always get replacement name badges and new name badges as and when you need them, without paying over the top prices. 


Name Badges with QR Codes

Posted by on Jan 24, 2012 in News | Comments Off on Name Badges with QR Codes

Here at magnetic name badges we have long been a fan of QR Codes and have incorporated these into quite a few of our badges. QR or quick response codes offer a simple way to share your important details or information with clients.

Using QR Codes on Name Badges

Name badges with QR codes are perfect for trade shows or conferences, and can be used as an alternative to business cards. The QR code can be encoded so that anybody who scans your badge instantly gets all your contact information, making it a much quicker alternative to manually entering details from a business card.

Using specific QR codes you could also direct customers to a hosted video or to a page on your website, ideal if you have a specific product or offer you want to promote.

How about using a QR code on your name badge to enter a competition, if your customers had to scan your badge to enter the competition, this offers the perfect opportunity to engage with them.

Incorporating QR codes into your name badges also shows that your company is up to speed with current technology, as well as providing a great way of sharing your details or promoting your company or products, the only limit to QR codes is your imagination.
