What Is a Desk Name Tag?

A Desk Name Tag is a customized sign that bears the name of an employee.

Alternate Names:

  • Desk Name Plate;
  • Desk Nameplate.

The purpose of this plate is to inform other people who is the person in front of them whether they occupy a shared workstation or have their own office. Whether you want to express gratitude to the employee after years of faithful service, showcase your appreciation for a project they have successfully carried out, or you want to give these name plates to every person that works for you which may be necessary if you are constantly visited by customers and business partners, the informative function of the desk tag cannot be understated.

How to Make a Name Tag for Your Desk?

If you want to make name tags for your employees without ordering them from a business that specializes in designing plates, here are some tips that will help you to create a custom Desk Name Plate:

  1. Determine what kind of information you want to include in the name tag. It is up to you to decide what it will contain but at a minimum, it should show the employee's full name. You can add their job title, the department they represent, the name and the logo of the company. It is possible to indicate more details on name plates designed for the upper management of the company if these people occupy their positions for many years.
  2. You may use plastic, steel, or wood to create a nameplate that will serve you for years to come. However, if your business is just making its first steps or you cannot allow an expense of this kind at the moment, a name of the employee printed on the folded piece of paper and put on the affordable name plate holder will be enough. Besides, these holders are usually designed to be reusable - you can put the name tag under the glass or plastic part of the holder and take it out just as easily.
  3. Even though every company is allowed to make creative choices and give every employee and manager a personalized Desk Name Plate, consider following the same style for all people that work for the company to maintain cohesion. Unless your business is well-known and associated with particular bright colors and you want to promote your brand using every opportunity, consider using subdued colors and shades - you cannot miss using white letters on a dark background.
  4. Avoid using rare materials and spending too much money and effort on one Desk Name Tag - if one of them is lost, an employee is fired or promoted, you will have to provide a replacement quickly, within a few days, so ensure the process of making or possibly ordering a replacement is not tricky for you and the organization's budget.
