C-Line Introduces New and Improved Name Badge Holders

C-Line is always looking for opportunities to make our products even better than they already are. Improving our products is our way to make sure that we continue to provide excellent quality products to our customers.

That being said, we recently have made a few changes to our name badge holders that are worth noting.

So what is the change you should expect? C-Line is now using Polypropylene in the manufacturing of the Clip Style, Clip/Pin Style, Magnetic Style and all Hanging Style Name Badge Holders. In the past, the material used has been PVC, and we have begun the changeover this year.

Although there may be a difference in the texture of the materials used, there are benefits to utilizing Polypropylene that convinced C-Line that this was the best option to go with.

  • Polypropylene does not crack when flexed or frozen like PVC
  • Polypropylene does not wrinkle and distort when exposed to heat like PVC
  • Polypropylene prevents photo copy transfer associated with PVC
  • Polypropylene is phthalate-free and meets all federal and state environmental regulations

In addition to all of those benefits, we have had already had reports from C-Line customers who have received the new badges that say they are easier to load with the badge inserts. In addition, the non-glare finish makes badges more readable in high-glare rooms where meetings are often held.

The improvements don’t stop there! There is one final change that we should mention that applies specifically to our Magnetic Badge Holders.

C-Line's Magnetic Name Badge HolderThe new magnetic attachment makes it easier to secure Magnetic Style Name Badges to clothing.

The advantage to the magnetic style is that it secures the badge to clothing without the potential for damaging the fabric. We have not only preserved this, but C-Line has designed a new, two-piece attachment that makes it even easier to apply to clothing.

The magnets that secure the name badge in place now come in two separate pieces that provides the user with more freedom on where to place the badge on their clothing. One piece is permanently attached to the badge, while the other can be completely removed.

The new attachment allows individuals to attach the badge to clothing that does not have a pocket, such as blouses or sweaters, which ultimately makes it an enhanced version of the previous style. Take a look at the before and after image to view the change.

We hope you enjoy these improvements to our name badge holder line. If you have suggestions on how to improve our products, we would love to hear them. Simply post your comments below.

    Sorry, but thumbs down on the new badge material (item 95543). The badges are NOT easier to read. Yes, it is easier to load the badge inserts, but they don’t look as crisp as the previous material. We won’t be ordering any more of these badge holders.

    We thank you for your feedback. Fortunately, you are one of the few customers who have given our new badge material a ‘thumbs down’. Although there is an undeniable difference between the two materials, C-Line’s decision to switch was in an effort to provide the best product to our customers. As you mentioned, the badges are easier to load. The polypropylene material also ensures that the badge holders can be reused by preventing photo copy transfer from the badge, which can occur with the previous material. Since they should not crack, wrinkle or tear, the polypropylene is overall a more durable material, increasing the life span of the holder. Finally, you may be aware of C-Line’s initiative to be environmentally conscious across the board with our products. The shift in material has allowed the badges to be phthalate-free and meet all federal and state environmental regulations. We hope that this further explanation has helped you understand C-Line’s decision to change materials. We value you as a continued customer of C-Line. Thanks!
