Magnetic Name Tags: Addressing Common Questions About Magnets

Are you considering custom name tags for your company's staff? It is essential to choose durable metal badges that offer a quick and convenient way for employees to identify themselves to clients and customers. Magnetic name tags have emerged as the preferred choice due to their popularity and practical benefits.

Among our range of name tag fasteners, magnets are particularly favored for professional attire because they avoid leaving holes or fabric tears, unlike traditional pins. This feature ensures that your staff's clothing remains pristine while providing a secure hold for the name tags, minimizing the risk of loss.

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about our magnetic name tags:

How do Magnetic Name Tags Work?

Once designed using our tool, name badges with magnets are backed by a metal strip firmly affixed with durable adhesive to either plastic or metal tags, depending on your preference. The blue or black plastic strip houses three strong magnets that securely attach the badge to various clothing types, from thin business shirts to wool blazers, offering easy on-and-off functionality without damaging fabrics.

Are Magnetic Name Tags Harmful?

It's important to note that magnets can pose a potential hazard, particularly for individuals with pacemakers. The blue plastic strip containing the magnets includes a cautionary warning against using magnetic devices near pacemakers: "Caution – Magnetic Device, Do Not Use with Pacemaker." If you are responsible for ordering custom name badges, it's crucial to consider employees' health conditions and consult with them accordingly.

What Happens When You Put a Magnet on a Pacemaker?

Magnets can interfere with pacemakers, potentially affecting their function and therapy for arrhythmia. Individuals with pacemakers should avoid using magnetic devices. It's advisable to seek medical advice before using any magnetic products. Further information on magnets and pacemakers can be found here.

What Clothing Is Suitable for Magnetic Badges?

We recommend wearing magnetic badges with shirts or other thin materials for optimal performance to ensure a secure hold. Thick fleece and jackets may not provide the necessary grip for magnets to hold the name badge firmly in place.

Can Magnets Harm Computers?

While magnets used in name tags are generally safe and designed not to come into close contact with computer hard drives, it's important to note that magnetic fields from stronger magnets can potentially disrupt and damage computer hard drives. However, our magnetic name tags are designed with safety in mind and pose minimal risk to electronic devices.

Magnetic name tags offer versatility and convenience, allowing employees to wear their badges comfortably with different outfits. Whether attached to a shirt collar, pocket, or another convenient location, our magnetic badges ensure both professionalism and ease of use.
