Office Signage – A Simple Way to Take Professionalism to the Next Level

Think of how you felt the first time you walked into a new office building. You probably didn’t know where anything was and you may have even got lost on your way to someone’s office or a meeting or two. Clearly marking offices and meeting spaces with nameplates and office signage is not only convenient for new hires and guests, it also adds a feeling of professionalism to the building and to the company as a whole.  

New employees, visitors, vendors and anyone else entering your building for the first time will likely make a snap judgment about the company as a whole based on what they observe. The professional image of your company will be improved by installing nameplates outside of each office, cubicle and meeting room. 

Giving new hires a personalized nameplate will certainly increase their sense of belonging. They’ll immediately feel like part of the team if they have their very own nameplate just like everyone else. They’ll feel much more welcome and it will show them you’re prepared and excited to have them on board. Not to mention the tension that will be reduced by being able to find their way around the building with ease if offices and meeting spaces are identified. 

IDville has a full line of office signage to bring your company’s professional image to the next level. Whether you’re looking for custom-engraved desktop nameplateswall- and door-mount signagecubicle nameplates or personal name tags for your team, IDville has just what you’re looking for. 

Even if you’re worried about frequent personnel or room changes we have several selections that make changing out office signage stress-free. There are many do-it-yourself signage options which are created using our blank paper stock and can be designed right at your desk, using our free templates, and printed from any printer.

Benefits of Photo ID Badges

by david 10. December 2013 08:35

Have you been considering the implementation of an ID badge policy at your organization? Below are several benefits of requiring your team to wear ID badges while at work that might help tip the scales toward ID badge use.

 

 

1. Safety & Security

2. Visitor Management

3. Time & Attendance

4. Improved Team Morale 

5. Customer Service

6. Student Services Combination 

7. Company Branding

Safety & Security-One of the most obvious and most important reasons for team members to wear ID badges is safety of the people and security of the assets in your building. Whether in a business, hospital, school or warehouse, safety should be a huge priority. ID badges are an uncomplicated way of identifying and safeguarding students, staff, visitors or customers. ID badges can also be used for external and internal door access to keep your building, assets and paperwork secure and determine who will have access to which areas of your company. Without policies to show who should be in the building and where they should or shouldn’t be, people will be able to just come and go at will. 

Visitor Management-The use of ID badges in schools or businesses by all staff and/or students allows you to know who’s in your building and what the purpose and duration of the visit is. Requiring your students and staff or employees to display an ID badge will ensure that you can distinguish who should or shouldn’t be on property. For added visitor control, IDville’s Visitor Management solutions will benefit any industry. 

Time & Attendance-ID badges can also be a great tool for time clocks. This allows team members to clock hours efficiently while avoiding the hassle of maintaining a time card. Simply adding a barcode to your ID badge design for your time and attendance system will result in less paperwork and filing due to more efficient and streamlined timekeeping processes.

Team Morale-Having all team members wear an ID badge will improve everyone’s sense of inclusion. It will also allow a great opportunity for employees to recognize each other by name when passing by, even if they don’t work together regularly. Customizable ID badge accessories can also help to create a sense of unity among your team, regardless of position or department. Some companies have even begun setting up programs with local businesses where their employees will receive discounts by showing their ID badge – what a great way for your team to really feel important! 

Customer Service-If you’re in the service industry, requiring the display of ID badges allows customers to easily identify employees and put a face with a name, both building a rapport between the customer and employee and increasing employee accountability. Customers will be more apt to be able to address employees by their first name and because their name is prominently displayed, employees will be more likely to “be on their best behavior” while at work. Also, when customers can easily locate an employee when they need assistance this will improve the customer experience – boosting your company reputation. 

Student Services Combination-There has been an increase in schools using student ID badges for more than just student identification. Several schools have added functionality to ID badges for library check-out, meal credit, access to residence halls, equipment check-out, student sporting events and activity admittance, lab access or even for discounts at local businesses. 

Branding-Having an appealing, memorable ID badge is a great way to promote your company brand to both current and potential customers. By designing attractive, full-color ID badges prominently displaying your company name, logo and brand colors, you’re creating a great branding tool and customers will easily recognize your brand in the future. 

Whether you’re looking for a simple photo ID badge to identify people on property or you want a badge with “the works”, a simple decision to implement an ID badge policy will open numerous doors to future possibilities with those ID badges. Advances in technology create increasing uses for ID badges and the possibilities will continue to grow. With the security, convenience and improvements in customer service and team morale, an ID badge system pays for itself many times over.

SHRM 2013 was a success for IDville!

After being back for a week we are finally caught up from all of the excitement that the 2013 Society for Human Resources Management Annual Conference brings every year and what a success it was! It was a packed show with over 14,000 attendees and 700 exhibitors. Identification Expert, David, commented that “the exhibit hall was packed! It was great seeing so many vendors from around the country giving away awesome gifts while pitching their products and services. It was impressive!” It was a very successful third year attending this conference. 
 
IDville participated as an exhibit sponsor June 16-18 in Chicago at the McCormick Place Convention Center. We were able to speak with over 1,300 HR professionals about the importance of photo identification and security in the workplace. 
 
As a new addition to the IDville team, it was great to meet new people and see their excitement towards implementing and/or updating their current photo identification system. It seemed as though many of the HR professionals I chatted with were either frustrated with their outdated ID system or their current system was simply too complicated. By having our ID Maker Systems on hand we were able to perform live demos to show how easy it is to design and print IDs from your desktop.  
 
Part of the fun was seeing the eagerness of the attendees to check out our new bling lanyards and sign up for our raffle prize! We raffled of a $200 Visa gift card. Congratulations to Alexandra from Texas. She was our lucky winner.  Enjoy! Be sure to “like” our Facebook Fan Page to receive exclusive monthly discounts and see photos of all our tradeshow travels.
 
I look forward to attending the Society for Human Resource Management Annual Conference in 2014 in the warm and sunny state of Florida and seeing some familiar faces!

Do It Yourself (DIY) projects are usually less expensive than hiring a professional and often get completed quicker. When it comes to identification, there are many things you can do yourself to save time and money, too. With the right tools, you can create professional-looking signs, name tags, and ID cards that will impress even the keenest eye!

Shop ClearkLook Office SignsWall Signs.
Post directional signs and label key rooms and offices with wall signs. You can design and print signs from your own computer using our popular ClearLook office signs. Sandwich your printout between two pieces of clear acrylic and hang it yourself for a sign that visitors will think was created professionally.

Name Tags.
If you’re in a customer-focused industry, your employees most likely wear nametags. Reduce your nametag investment with Quick Print Name Tags and create a label of the employees’ name and apply it to the name tag. Name tags are engraved with your logo or your choice of graphic. You’ll be able to instantly make name tags for new employees and reuse old name tags, too!

ID Cards.
The ultimate DIY identification tool is a photo ID card printer. Using ID Maker software, you can create photo ID cards on the spot for employees, visitors, contractors and volunteers. Once you have your photo ID card printer set up, you’ll find many additional uses for it! You can create labels, make wallet size info cards and design ID cards for events.
