The main purpose for personalised name badges is to display to everyone your personal information. The right design and formatting is very important, therefore the font type and the font size are key design factors. For easy readability it’s important that a standard font is chosen, especially for people with long names or long job titles. The name and job titles need to be easy to read, so a cursive font would not work well as it would make it difficult to read in a smaller font size. The size of the badge is also a factor to consider, as the more information that is required to fit within the space provided, the bigger the badge that should be chosen. If first and last names are required, then a wider badge would be the ideal choice. Whereas, if it’s more important for people to see the job title and they are long, then a badge with more height would suit better as this would then allow for more than one line to be used for the job title.
