Name tag

Name tag

[neym-tag]
A name tag is a badge or sticker worn on the outermost clothing as a means of displaying the wearer's name for others to view.

Forms

Name tags may be temporary (the iconic image being the "Hello! My Name Is ________" sticker) or permanent. Temporary ones typically can be written upon so that the wearer's name may be handwritten or printed. Permanent name tags are usually made of lightweight metal or plastic. Name tags may be attached to garments with adhesive, or worn with the assistance of a magnet or pin. Some name tags are worn around the neck using a lanyard or necklace.

Uses

Name tags are used by some customer service companies, such as fast food restaurants, so that customers may identify employees by name. Police and military personnel often wear name tags that are separate from the badges that identify their official capacity. Loose associations of people gathering together for conventions and other events where socialization is encouraged often wear name tags.
