We’re sure you remember the “Im With Her” badges that became commonplace on pro-Democrat voters during the 2016 US Election Campaign.

Hospitals, blood drive centres and other medical institutions can use button badges as a way to not only thank their patients but create awareness as well by getting medical personnel to wear them too. Examples are button badges for blood donors, for people who sign up for organ donation or for kids visiting the doctor or dentist to promote positive associations.

Hotels and resorts can use button badges as an alternative to name badges, including a quirky slogan such as, “I’m Jenny. Here to help!”


Much like the hospitality industry, retail stores can also replace traditional badges with button badges. Many stores now have a brand-relevant slogan included on the badges such as, “Need help? Ask me!” or something along those lines to encourage good customer service.
