7 Reasons Why Badge Holders Are An Affordable Solution For ID Badges

ID Badges

March 7, 2011

There's not a lot of science behind how to use a badge holder and what it's mainly used for.  But in case you've never seen one or used one before, they hold small cards, tickets or any other type of identification.  They are one of the main reasons lanyards are purchased in the first place.  Let's take a look at 7 reasons that companies typically use these:

1) Badge holders typically come in a business card size and a 4" x 3" size.  While the business card size is typically used for places like business offices and schools, the 4"x3" is generally used for conventions, expos and events.

2) Most of our badge holders have a horizontal slit at the top, making them a perfect fit for a lanyard with a bulldog clip.

3) A lot of times, badge holders will also have two holes near the top, and you can use either a double ended bulldog clip or just a string.

4) Overall, these are an extremely affordable. You can buy 4"x3" ID cards at most office supply stores.

5) Made out of plastic they last for many years, allowing you to re-use them on an as needed basis. Occasionally they get scratched if handled improperly and thrown all over the place, but they are inexpensive and easy to replace.

6) Plastic badge holders are very durable, but if you're looking for something that's more heavy-duty, then you're probably looking for a neck wallet. These are basically built in lanyards with badge holders, but they are used more for conventions or travel purposes.  Because they are a little bigger, and typically made out of a nylon material, they are a little more expensive.

7) The business card size badge holder isn't just for holding ID cards.  You can also hold gift cards, credit cards, etc.

These are just a few of the ways people use clear badge holders, but if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us.
