When you own or work in the purchasing department for a large corporation, managing name tags for all your employees and new hires can be tough. It's time consuming, there's tons of paperwork from each vendor, customer service requests from employees can be overwhelming, and of course, the monthly costs can add up! But what if there was a place, just one name badge vendor, that could handle everything for you in one streamlined and efficient process? Well, you're in luck! LoneStar Badge & Sign has redefined employee name tag ordering with our Corporate Ordering Services.
We know that the idea of switching to a new name tag vendor can be daunting when your company has multiple locations, especially if you're currently using several different vendors across the U.S. This may sound more terrifying than the ordering process in the first place! But, we're sure that if you have any concerns like we described (or frankly, headaches) with your current name tag process or vendor(s), we can work with you to provide a streamlined solution to solve all your corporate name tag ordering frustrations from just one centrally located badge manufacturer. We'd love the opportunity to show you how we can shine, so please contact one of our Corporate Services Specialists today to discuss how we can help. We're here to walk with you every step of the way from the set up, to ordering and invoicing, and we look forward to working with you and your employees very soon.

LoneStar handles name badge orders from nationwide accounts daily. We're equipped to produce thousands of name tags and get them shipped out to each individual location across the U.S. within just one business day. Additionally, we're centrally located in Texas, so we're able to ship all orders to all of your company's locations coast-to-coast quickly and cost effectively with our many shipping methods available from UPS, FedEx Express, and USPS Mail.
Employee Ordering Portal
LoneStar is not just your average name tag vendor in regards to corporate employee ordering. What makes us unique from other vendors is that we specialize in setting up an ordering portal (website) where employees (or students, teachers, nurses, etc.) can order their replacement or new hire name tags directly when needed. This helps take the burden off you and/or your purchasing department and allows employees to order anytime, without having to make the request through a middle man (you!).
We understand that sometimes giving your employees at all levels control of ordering could potentially lead to over-ordering or order mistakes. So to help control what you're spending each month on name tags and reduce the possibility of errors, limitations can be put in place on your ordering portal. We're able to set up restrictions to allow only certain users to log in to place orders; control which products can be ordered by employee or location, or which titles and fasteners employees are permitted to select from; limit quantities ordered per each employee or location during a time period; or pre-define available shipping locations and methods for each order. All these restrictions are optional, but can be customized based on your needs to maximize efficiency and minimize expenses.
Any of our name badges can be personalized in a variety of ways. Customization can be pre-approved at the corporate level (by you) and be implemented in a multitude of ways for your employees. For example, we can design multiple badge styles that your employees can choose from, or only certain designs can be available based on the employee's location or credentials. Additional design features, like the option to add a photo, employee ID number, bar code, or additional text designating the employee is bi-lingual, for example, can be incorporated as required or add-on options when ordering as well. Fastener choices (magnets, clips, pins, badge reels, etc.) can be limited to only what you pre-approve or you can allow employees to choose their preference when ordering. The bottom line is we can custom design your badge styles(s) however you would like and give employees as many (or as little) options as you prefer.
Customer Service Requests
When an employee places an order, we provide them with an emailed order confirmation and tracking information to help minimize customer service requests. However, we're also available during business hours to work with your employees directly via phone, email, or live chat whenever they have additional questions or order status inquiries. Our friendly and professional Customer Service Representatives are happy to reply to all customer service requests quickly and directly so you don't have to!
Not every business wants to or is able to order and pay for name badges in the same way. While a normal office may be able to have their managers place orders and pay on standard net-30 terms, a school or college may need to order badges for both students and teachers who will each have unique billing and payment practices. In this way, our ordering system can be tailored to meet any billing structure that best fits in with your accounts payable department. Employees (or students, nurses, etc.) can enter their payment at checkout and take care of orders immediately up front, locations can be invoiced for each order, or a monthly summarized statement can be sent to your corporate accounting department. Whatever your billing and payment needs are, we can work with you!
Reports of Every Kind
Helping you keep track of who is ordering what and how much it's costing you is another one of the features we offer with our Corporate Services. Reports and statistics on which locations order the most, or even which employees, can be beneficial and crucial to properly managing your monthly expenses or help determine which types or ordering restrictions you might need to set in place. Let us know what ordering, product, price, or shipping details are pertinent to you and we'll create a customized report just for you!
Our newest feature that we'd be happy to work with you on is our ability to integrate our ordering website directly with your site or even with a third party order management system. These integrations can streamline the ordering process even further to ensure a seamless ordering experience from the employee level, to administration and accounts payable levels as well.
