Steps to Creating the Perfect Custom Badge Buddy Online


Steps to Creating the Perfect Custom Badge Buddy OnlineThere are a whole host of occupations where easy identification of personnel is critical. This includes medical personnel such as doctors, nurses, students, and much more. In addition to the medical field, other industries benefit from clearly marked ID badges to quickly identify personnel for security purposes.

While a photo ID is helpful to identify an individual, most badges do not display an individual’s role or job function prominently enough. For this purpose, Badge Buddies allow for easy identification of not only an individual’s name and picture, but their role or job function as well.

Specialist ID offers a host of Badge Buddies for doctors, nurses, CNA, LPN and LVN, but occasionally our customers need custom Badge Buddies to identify other key positions in their company. In these instances, we offer custom printed Badge Buddies in both horizontal and vertical orientations. To order these badges online, follow the steps below:

How to Order Custom Badge Buddies Online

  • Familiarize yourself with the Specialist ID website

The first step when you’re deciding to purchase custom Badge Buddies is to visit and familiarize yourself with our user-friendly website. Here you’ll be able to browse our large list of products including Badge Buddies as well as other badge holders.

  • Determine whether you would like horizontal or vertical Badge Buddies

Next, you need to decide whether you need horizontal or vertical Badge Buddies. This decision typically depends on whether your photo IDs are printed vertically or horizontally. You’ll obviously want to purchase Badge Buddies that match the orientation of your photo IDs.

  • Decide what you want to be printed on the Badge Buddies

While our pre-printed ID Badge Buddies only come in a limited variety of colors, if you choose to customize your Badge Buddies, you’ll have access to a much wider color palette. In addition, you’ll be able to print whatever you’d like on the badge. Keep in mind that there is only a limited amount of available characters to print to allow for easy identification. The more characters that are used, the smaller the text will be, making it harder to read, and thus defeating the purpose of the Badge Buddy.

  • Place your order on our website

Now that you’ve decide what type of Badge Buddy you need, as well as what you want printed on the badge, it’s time to place an order on our website. We offer a custom designed website that easily allows you to place your order online. You’ll be able to choose from over 15 color options, and you’ll also be able to enter any custom text that you would like to appear on your Badge Buddy.
