Since we launched 30 years ago, the Imprint Plus™ name badge system has been popular with the hospitality industry. We think it’s because our system fits perfectly with the hospitality business model. Name badges are standard in the hospitality industry, so we don’t have to convince you of their value. The burden of proof we bear is to show you why you should pick our badge system over that of our competitors’.

One of the main reasons why the reusable name badge system continuously beats out the competition is because of just that! Our name badges are part of a comprehensive system, as opposed to many name badges that are created and sold as a one-off. Our program gives you the power: Badges are sold in all-inclusive 20-unit kits, which are designed to last a small to medium size property about a year, reducing your shipping costs dramatically (not to mention lead times on new badges). You’ll have the tools on-site to personalize and create badges for your property.

 

Another feature of the Imprint Plus™ badge program that sets us apart is the product’s reusability. Sure, a lot of badge companies boast reusability, but are they truly reusable? Many employ adhesive tape to personalize the badges, so when you want to change the name, you have to un-stick and peel off the tape. Un-sticking tape from a badge (or anything really) can leave behind a sticky residue that is hard to clean off and ruins the professional look of the badge. From our perspective, tape personalization is not true reusability-it’s more of a band-aid solution.

The reusable name badge from Imprint Plus™ is truly reusable: The badge plate, personalized insert, lenscover and signature magnetic fastener fit together by design, not by tape. This means that they can be snapped together or apart easily and without damage. When a new team member comes on board, just toss out the old insert and slide in a new one. You won’t have to compromise at all on quality or style. The reused name badge will look exactly the same as the original one. We’re so proud of the innovative design and quality craftsmanship that went into our badge. We’re confident that you and your staff will love it, too.

We’re honored to be the preferred or mandated vendor to the following hospitality giants: Hyatt Hotels and Resorts, Marriott Hotels International, Choice Hotels International, Best Western International, Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, InterContinental Hotels Group, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, and many others.

We’re Green

We’ve noticed that many hotels, motels, inns, and bed and breakfasts are going green! Of course you’re eco-consciousness is important to your guests, but in many cases it’s also economical. That’s the case with Imprint Plus™ product lines-the fact that they’re green can save you money. Reusing the name badge components for employee to employee can bring your cost per unit down as low as 25¢ cents per badge, and that’s not even factoring in the reduction in shipping costs you’ll experience by ordering in kits. With Imprint Plus™, you can fold your name badge purchase in to your green budget. Find out more about Imprint Plus­™ green policies under the “About Us” section of the website.
