From employee photo ID cards to visitor badges, access control cards for doors or computers, and payment cards for the cafeteria, keeping your cards easily accessible is important!
Guide to ID Badge Accessories
Lanyards – Lanyards are incredibly easy to use with any uniform or dress code because they are worn around your neck, not attacked to your clothing or pocket. Lanyards are vailable in safety breakaway styles (that open if the lanyard is caught or grabbed to avoid choking), a range of widths and materials, and a rainbow of colors.
Badge Reels – Almost as popular as lanyards, badge reels clip onto your clothing or pockets. The retractable cord ensures that your card snaps back into place after you’ve swiped it, so it’s never in your way. Badge reels are available in a range of colors and shapes, and heavy duty reels are designed to withstand active use.
Strap Clips – Commonly used with visitor ID badges and other temporary card programs, strap clips are small plastic strips that snap closed to secure your ID badge and then clip onto your clothing.
Pins & Magnets – Designed to attached directly to your card, most pins and magnets use an adhesive to securely attack to the back of an ID card. This makes them a great option for generic visitor badges that don’t have the visitor’s information and will be reused for future visitors, or for badges you don’t plan to replace often.
