Logos, Backgrounds and More
There are several other name badge templates from which you can choose. The Blue Water Design name tags have rounded corners and a deep blue background that resembles sparkling water. An opaque text box in the center allows you to type in a name or any other information you want to include on the badge. If you like the appearance of these badges but would prefer a different color, you can easily change the color of the background image to create an entirely unique look.
A simpler but no less striking design is the Name Badge With Flourish template. This black and white design features a large embellishment along the left side of each tag. On the right are three separate text boxes. The top and bottom text boxes are in a size 14 font, where you could ostensibly enter the name of your business and the person's job title or the name of the event the wearer is attending. The center text box is formatted in a larger font so that the bearer's name is easily seen and legible.
Another understated yet eye-catching example, the Logo and Name Badge features a sample logo at the center of the top of each of the eight rectangular tags on the page. Replace this with the logo of your business, school or other organization by right-clicking the image and selecting Change Picture. Locate the image file on your computer, network or removable media that you want to use and click Insert. Below the logo is a text box into which you can type each person's name.
If you are seeking something a little more sleek and modern, check out the Metallic Look Name Tags. Thanks to Word's shape effects, these badges appear three-dimensional, beveled and shiny. There is a text box in the center of each of the eight tags with sample text that you can type over.
For a little twist on the standard "Hello, My Name Is" badges, ours feature a purple border around the name section of the tag with "Hello" at the top and "My Name Is" along the bottom. In addition, you can easily change the color of these badges by simply selecting the purple area, right-clicking and going to Format Shape. You can also modify them from the Drawing Tools Format tab in Word 2007 or 2010.
Finally, if you are holding a winter-related event or have a business name that fits --think Frost, Cold Springs or Winter Garden, for example-- you might appreciate the last offering on our list. The Wintry Background Name Badge has a blue background with white decorations that give it a snowy appearance. Of course, you can change the color of the background image for a different air, if you choose. The badges have a text box in the center so that you can easily add names or other important information.
