What Do Your Clothes Say About You?

Wearing Name Tags

Do you know where to place your name tag?

How do you make people feel valued? According to Dale Carnegie, “A person’s name is, to that person, the sweetest and most important sound in any language.” Our names matter. Unfortunately, learning and remembering a person’s name does not come easily to most people.

A name tag lets people see your name in print, which increases the likelihood that they remember it. This simple, often overlooked tool is a powerful way to begin a meaningful connection.

Did you know that there is a proper place to wear your name tag?

Place your name tag high on your upper right chest because it will be in the line of sight when shaking hands. As you shake hands, your eye naturally follows up the arm to the name tag and then the face. Avoid placing your name tag anywhere that you do not want people staring; this sounds obvious, but it creates so many awkward moments!

When writing your name tag, clearly print your name large enough so that it can be easily read from two arm’s length away – approximately 10 feet.

Don’t want to be forgotten? Start by wearing your name tag in the right place.
