Printing Name Badges

Printable Name Badge Inserts
for Custom Name Badges

Why We Made This

Now changes in job titles or staff turnover won’t cost you a new name badge. Our simple-to-use name badge insert sheets are the smart way to make name badges. By simply replacing an insert, you have a new badge in seconds at a fraction of the cost by reusing the badge plate, lenscover and fastener. A new insert will cost you 25 cents or less, a major upgrade for the 100% replacement cost you’re paying with a permanent alternative.

The Insert is by definition a means of printing metal name tags on demand using desktop printers and our Imprint Plus name print graphics software.  Normally, a metal name badge is screen-printed with graphics (a permanent process), then marked with text (also permanent), using either a local print shop or in-house methods like a plotter. By moving the printing from the badge plate itself to a third layer of printable material, the badge becomes both printable on a desktop printer and reusable.

Conceptually, the insert is a transparent layer of printable material that sits between the front surface of a metal badge plate and its protective lenscover. Unlike labeling systems, the insert requires no custom-printing device and unlike typical label media, it has no adhesive.  The insert is intended to make it easy for users to make reusable name badges on demand by allowing easy positioning or interchanging of text and graphics.  Finally, the configuration of the sheet is meant to allow easy separation into individual inserts, multiple feeds into printers, and still provide compatibility with most brands and models of computer printers.

We’re proud to provide you with a name badge system and name tag printing software that facilitates your badge program.

Imprint Plus insert sheets are easy to use

Peel-Off inserts mean you can print only the amount you need at once, and reuse the rest of the inserts later; the sheet can be re-fed through the printer unlimited times. (Peel-Off Inkjet sheet shown.)

Classic v. Peel-Off

The classic insert sheet was the first iteration of this Imprint Plus™ product. It is a perforated, single layer sheet that works with laser and inkjet printers. The print quality on these insert sheets is excellent. But the classic’s weakness was its single layer design, which did not support multiple feeds through the printers. So, we went into research and development and came out with the peel-off, our latest and greatest insert sheet. This sheet is dual-layered, which means it can be re-fed through the printer unlimited times until all the inserts are used up. We also introduced tabbing, which makes it easy to peel off the inserts. The tab is perforated, and simply tears off. Both the classic and the peel-off insert sheets have advantages and disadvantages, and many of our customers develop a preference between the two, which is why we still offer them both for inkjet and laser printers.

The Classic

  • Perforated
  • Clean and crisp color
  • Two-step separation: fold and tear
  • Longer drying time
  • Cannot be re-fed through the printer once torn

The Peel-Off

  • Inserts peel right off in one easy step!
  • Peel-able
  • Clean and crisp color
  • Quick drying time
  • Dual-layer technology allows for multiple feeds

Customized Insert Sheets

Looking to save even more time? Imprint Plus™ is pleased to offer customized name badge insert sheet services. We will color-match and print your company logo on all the inserts, so that all you have to do is personalize them with text. This is especially helpful to those companies who want to display the logo in full color, but  only have black and white printing available on-site. We strive to provide you with a name badge solution that is both economical and effective.
