Apart from being a personal identification, name tags are one of the common accessories nowadays. They come in varying designs and colors that can match your mood, personality and purpose.
Most of the time, name tags are attached to a silver chain and worn around the neck (just like dog tags). Pets also have their own name tags on their collars. While some name tags are placed on top of the desk to let others know that the desk is yours. Teachers usually have these kinds of name tags.
But the most basic name tags are the ones that can be pinned to your shirt, used commonly by students during the first week of the school term. Unlike the commercially made ones in plastic or metal, these are made of cardboard or paper, with just the student's name handwritten on it. Boring, isn't it?
The good news is, there are printable name tags available online. These printable name tags already have designs and colors; there's no need to stick with the traditional, boring name tags that only show your name. Now, you can replace your old name tag, or produce a new one, with cartoon designs, name tags with borders, number and flowers - any design is available. All you really need is a printer. And of course, reliable and user-friendly sources.
