Temporary expiring name badges are great for visitor management, especially in schools, hospitals, and other high traffic areas. For guests that should only be on site for a one day long visit, there are temporary badges that expire after approximately 12-14 hours of use. Simply start the expiration process when you issue the guest's badge at check in. They can attach it directly to their clothing using the adhesive backing so it's clearly displayed all day. Then you'll be able to tell at the end of the day when their visit is complete and the badge has expired. This helps to prevent daily visitors turning into multiple day or weekly visitors.
We have thermal printable styles which are packaged in rolls to fit in your thermal printer, as well as manual (handwritten) styles that come fan-folded for your dispensing convenience. Most styles come with an adhesive backing and are available in packages of 1,000 to help ensure you have plenty on hand to supply to all your visitors and guests.
Unless you're ordering one of our One Step temp badges, please be sure you also order a corresponding back part with your badges. The back parts being adhered to the front temp badge is what will start the expiration process. No back parts are needed when ordering the One Step styles as you'll receive the front and backs already attached together.
If you have any difficulty finding the right name badge to fit your needs, we have live chat and phone lines open 8am-5pm CST Monday-Friday to help you find what exactly what your looking for.
