  • Blank name badge supplier in Ireland

    Hi All,

    Does anyone know if there is a supplier in Republic of Ireland of blank, pin/clip on name badges that could have a vinyl print either fitted to the front or ideally reverse printed & fitted on the back & a choice of sizes/shapes? I may even consider getting the badge face laser cut from clear acrylic if I could then source the pin/clips to fix to the back.

    A couple of the signage suppliers here used to do some but no longer do.

    I’m also only looking for approx. 36 for a good customer who really want to get them from me & keep things local if possible.

    Oh! & they don’t want the reusable paper insert type, but something a little more classy & permanent.

    Thanks

    i think you will struggle to cut in vinyl as badges tend to be small mate.
    also, the fastening clips or pins are attached to the rear.
    we had to buy badges a couple of years ago and it was cheap and fast to buy a small amount in already done. you just upload the artwork online and they arrive a few days later exactly as you want them.
    you can get pin, safety pin and magnetic options. i forget the name of the site but will see if i can dig the name out later.

      Thanks Rob,

      I wasn’t thinking of cutting sign vinyl! I think as you say they’d definitely be a tad on the small side for that haha!. There’s an image logo too so I had intended just to print them. As it’s a relatively small quantity it wouldn’t be a massive job to print & fit, either to the face or reverse print & fitted onto the back if there was a blank available that would allow for that.

      Something like the attached for example.
      Around 80x40mm or there about.

      The problem with some of the companies printing them is the minimum quantities.

      I may well have to give up on it but I wanted to at least try for my customer & thought it would be easy enough to still get blanks but it seems that’s no longer the case these days.

    Boltons on Camden St in Dublin do name badges.
    Not sure if they supply blanks but I know they produce in-house.

    @Cian-Byrne suggestion could be a good option for you, Myles.

    I had a quick look and “I think” the one we used in the past was Name badges international.
    Looks like they will do low quantities, 1-5 badges.

    That’s great thanks Cian & Rob. Hopefully should be able to get them sorted with one of them.

    Thanks for the help 👍

      Hi Joe,

      Yes I saw that, was actually my 1st choice, but unfortunately they don’t do the size that my customer was looking for, otherwise would have been perfect with the doming kits as well.
