Make a blank badge on your computer, it can be a simple card made in Word, or maybe an image made using Photoshop. The badge has a size of about 65 by 95 mm, it indicates the full name or first name and surname, as well as other information you need - company, department, position, photo.
The easiest way to make badges the same size is to use Microsoft Word. For example, Microsoft Word 2007: in the top panel, select "Mailings", then in the upper left corner "Stickers", in the window that appears, select "Page with the same stickers". A window with templates will open in front of you, which you just have to fill in and press the "Print" button.
Another way - you can create a table in Word, specifying the size of the cells you need the size of the badge. Subsequently, fill in the cells with the information you need.
Take a paper cutter or regular scissors and cut the blank into rectangles. With a cutter, you will definitely get the edges of the badge straight, but if you use scissors, you will have to try a little more for this.
To make a laminated badge, take the correct size and thickness of laminating film and place a piece of paper between the layers. Pass it through a laminator, which will soften the laminate and securely seal the badge card into it.
Make a hole for the clip. To make a hole in your laminated badge, you need a special hole punch. Laminated film simply won't give in to an ordinary hole punch. Make a hole for the clip and attach it to your badge.
