Name Badges: Build Professionalism And Trust


Any business or organisation interacting with the public should be interested in name badges. They’re a perfect way to instill confidence in your business and its people, to build loyalty, and to demonstrate to your people that they are valued. Here at Sheridan’s Badges and Engraving, we’ve been making name badges for Perth businesses, social groups, schools, government and medical centres – for over 100 years! Our story started when family patriarch Charles Sheridan first set up a workshop behind his Florence Street residence in West Perth way back in 1913. During the second half of the 20th century, name badges were an obligatory part of the sports uniform for lawn bowling clubs across Australia. We made thousands of them. During school holidays, the young Sheridan sons would make handsome pocket money engraving hundreds of name badges at 20 cents a pop. Today we still put the same commitment and passion into our work.

Why name badges?

Name badges are an easy way for people outside the organisation to identify staff members, and to clarify their role. When you see someone with a name badge, you know at a glance who they are and what they do, putting you at ease. Whether it’s the childcare worker you’re entrusting your child’s care to, or the specialist taking care of your health, a name badge is a reassuring sight. 


Name badges also make for a much more personal and reassuring experience for clients when connecting with staff. The ability to easily address a staff member by name adds to the positive experience any organisation should be aiming to achieve.

Name badges aren’t just about identifying who you are to your patients, they also show clients that your staff are proud to work here and that they are a valued and permanent member of your business or organisation, and they make your staff feel proud too.

What is a name badge?

Put simply, it’s a badge with someone’s name on it, generally attached to clothing; so, like your standard lapel pin badge, it comes with a brooch pin fitting and can be attached to your lapel (or elsewhere, on other fabrics, etc.) 

Our name badges are either engraved, printed or lasered onto metal or plastic.
