Nametags fall into two categories: permanent and temporary. The goal of a nametag is to identify the person wearing the nametag and communicate a clear association between that person and Iowa State University and the unit they are representing.

An official format has been developed for permanent nametags. You can contact Printing Services to order name badges.


Temporary nametags may be designed for specific events. The design must follow university graphic identity system guidelines for the use of the wordmark, typography, and color. The example below was developed for an official university sponsored symposium.
