Use images to create eye-catching name tags

If your business is holding an event or you want your guests to know who they can turn to for advice, your custom name tags can tell them everything they need to know. You can upload photographs of the people in charge of the event to give your name tags a more professional touch.

You may also want to create a theme. Choose from over a million images on Canva. You may find an image of the city where you’re hosting your event or an image that reflects your business philosophy. If you can’t find the perfect image on Canva, you can even take a photo and upload it.

Make your name tags reflect your brand image

Pre-packaged name tags are generic in nature and say nothing about your brand. When you make name tags on Canva, you can have them reflect your brand image. One of the easiest ways to do this is by adding your company logo. Just upload it into Canva then drag and drop it where you need it to go. Once uploaded, your images will remain in the uploads folder, ready to be used on other designs.

You can also change the fonts and color to reflect your brand image. There are more than a hundred fresh fonts to choose from in Canva. Choose from script fonts for a handwritten feel or sans serif for a more minimalist look.

Save, share and print your name tags

Do you want input from your team or family before you print your name tags? Share them with whomever you like before you print them. Canva makes it easy to collaborate with family, friends and colleagues. Click the share button and email your name tags or share on Facebook or Twitter. Select PDF, highres JPEG or PNG files when you save your name tags. Any format will give you crisp, clear printouts.
