Buying Guide: Which Badge Holders Best Suit your Company
Q. What type of badges and accessories
would you recommend to certain companies?
A. Depending on the industry, certain
standards and regulations apply for proper
identification (ID). In this guide, we’ll give a brief description of what some industries like hospitals,
schools, and business corporations prefer.
Our most recommended products for hospitals would be the Badge Buddy and
the badge reel to attach ID holders to.
For Private and
We always recommend our breakaway lanyards that detach in
the back just in case it gets caught on something. These breakaways will
prevent accidental choking. One of the more popular badge accessories is the
adjustable breakaway lanyard. This allows you to adjust the length of your
lanyard and is most beneficial to students of various heights.
The breakaway lanyard can adjust in length from 24” to 44”
long. It comes in 9 different colors and may match your school colors to
enhance school pride. The selection in colors is also great for identifying students
at scholastic events where multiple schools are participating. The lanyard is
3/8” wide—wide enough to get a custom print of a school’s name, team, or mascot

Unlike hospitals, there aren’t usually too many regulations
or restrictions for business corporations and non-profits in the way of IDs.
Because of this, the selection of badge holders and IDs are plentiful and
businesses can be as creative as they wish when supplying their personnel with
ID badges and accessories.
However, the experts at Specialist ID have found that the
standard credit card size ID badges tend to be the most preferred in this
industry. Whether you just need your badge holder to secure one ID card or two,
the Rigid Open-Faced 2-Card Holder (
) is firm enough to keep ID cards from bending or folding.

Need Extra Security?
For corporations that need extra
security, the Rigid Shielded RFID Blocking 2-Card Holder (
protects any data that is embedded in your card. This is perfect if you’re
carrying sensitive information like a debit or credit card, or any type of card
using radio-frequency identification (RFID). With this badge holder, you’ll
still have excellent visibility. Yet, because of the metal properties, you will
not be able to scan your card unless you take it out of the badge holder. So
that is something you might want to keep in mind.
