Make the name badges clear and easy to read

We use name badges to identify people. So make them easy to read!

In practice, that means printing the name in a large, clear font. Every conference I’ve been to has done plain black on white in a sans serif font, and that works well.

Nobody wants to waste time reading the badge – keep it short, simple, easy to glance at.

If you’re using badges with a lanyard (and not a badge holder), print on both sides of the badge, so it remains readable if it flips over.
