The All-important Badge March 20 2017, 0 Comments
From the first day of life, maybe even before a child is born, a name is selected. That name will stay with that child until the day they die. It is a life-long investment that is made on their behalf.
Perhaps that is why our names are so important to us. Even if we share our name with another, somehow, when our name it called we tend to believe it is for us alone. Have you ever been in a crowd and heard your name being called?
When we meet new people, is it not our names that we use first to introduce ourselves? “Hi, I’m Jack. You are?” Or, we may simply say our name and hand over a business card. A business card is something for the other person, whether stranger or friend, that contains many details but most important of all, our name.
Names are great conversation-starters. This is why so many more people in business wear badges, more than ever before.
The cashier in the bank has a name badge pinned to her chest. The waiter wears his badge prominently, so that patrons can call for him when they need service. It is also useful to the waiter, to help the customer remember who they should tip.
In the security industry, employees need to be identified in order to differentiate them from civilians and other perpetrators of mischief. For this reason, badges are manufactured to specific specifications, unique to that organisation.
Badges are not only worn as a means of personal identity. Many forms of insignium are worn to indicate rank or level of achievement, in the form of a scroll or possibly some other shape associated with the purpose – a star, a cross or a particular logo.
At Prestige Awards, we make badges. We bring identity to the school teacher, the corporate employee and the pupil. We recognise achievement and help give you your identifiable brand so that you are addressed properly and remembered.
Badges are made to order. The badge may be pinned with a brooch pin or held onto the clothing using a strong magnet. It’s your choice.
