Believe it or not name badge technology has come a long way since the invention of the pin backing. Our most popular option for name badges is now the magnetic backing. This innovative design comprises two separate pieces: a steel bar that is attached to your name tag and the second piece is a magnetic bar that is placed behind your clothing. The result? No pin holes, the magnet features an attraction that is strong enough to hold through everything from suit coats to sweaters. Your magnetic name tags will stay affixed exactly the way intended without turning sideways.
