Create Your Own ID Badge
At your place of employment, large social gatherings, institutions of learning, and even large events
such as concerts, sporting venues, and conferences all have something in common: photo ID badges and
name tags! Maybe they don’t physically all have tangible badges, but photo ID badges and name tags are
an important security tool in this day and age. Issuing a photo ID badge or name tag does not have to be
a complicated task either. An inkjet printed photo ID badge or a simple white sticker with a sharpie
will work. But if you want something more professional looking and secure, or that is souvenir quality,
then eXpress badging has you covered! You can design & print your
own custom, quality card or badge in-house - You Print! If you
need help, ID Badging Specialists can guide you along the way - We Print!
