Vertical or Horizontal Custom Badge Buddies: Which Is Best For You?

Vertical or Horizontal?


When it comes to choosing what kind of Badge Buddy to purchase for your company, decisions like this may not seem like a big deal until you actually have to choose! Then you’ll find that everyone has an opinion on something so simple. Yet, you must hear everyone out. Even if you have all the purchasing power, you alone might even go back and forth on whether or not personnel should have horizontal Badge Buddies or vertical. It’s like event planning—those small details are the decisions you may spend hours getting hung up on.


The Question and the Answer


Specialist ID, a wholesale badge holder and accessory distributor in Miami is here to help you through this kind of mind-numbing decision! The first question that most purchasers ask is:


Q.
What’s the difference between the horizontal and vertical Badge Buddy?


A.
Well, the dimensions are relatively the same, except your identification badge and Badge Buddy will be displayed either vertically or horizontally. With the horizontal display, you have more room for print. Arguably, you’ll have the same amount of space for print in a vertical Badge Buddy, but you’ll need to use a second line. The horizontal one also offers this option, but the lettering will be smaller.


What You Need to Know About Badge Buddies


One thing you need to know about Badges Buddies is that while you can customize them to say what you want, it’s worth noting that the more text you require, the smaller the font size will be. Remember, the purpose of your Badge Buddy is to help people identify your personnel. So, if the lettering is too small, then the chances of it being visibly legible are slim. While there is no limit to how many letters you want on your Badge Buddy, remember to keep your wording to a minimum and abbreviate if you have to, but make sure your abbreviations can be understood. Your Badge Buddies will be no good to anyone if the wording doesn’t make any sense to anyone! So in this case, less is more!
