Giving visitor badges to your guests is one of the most popular methods of Visitor Management. It’s easy to see why: visitor badges are affordable and easy to issue. However, they also present problems, particularly with unauthorized reuse. TEMPbadge® expiring visitor badges eliminate those problems.

TEMPbadge expiring visitor badges are a patented visitor badge solution designed to provide fast, visual verification that a guest’s allotted time is up. Unlike standard paper badges, TEMPbadge visitor badges show a series of red lines or other expiration indicators after a predetermined time frame, making it clear that the guest’s visit should be over.

How are TEMPbadge expiring visitor badges used?

TEMPbadge visitor badges are designed to be issued to guests upon arrival. At first issue, the badge is blank, looking like any other paper badge.

A guest’s name, the date and other important data can be either handwritten or printed directly on the badge, depending on the style. The badge is then issued to the guest, either with a clip or stuck on using the adhesive back.

Once the badge is activated, the guest goes about his or her business as usual. As time goes on, the badge begins to slowly expire. One the time limit is reached, red lines or other expiration indicators appear, making it clear that the guest is no longer authorized to be on-site.

When the guest leaves, he or she can simply throw the used badge away — because it can’t be reused, there’s no need to collect badges at day’s end!

How do expiring visitor badges work?

Our expiring visitor badges were invented using a patented migrating ink technology. This technology use two different badge parts: a front and a back.

The badges are designed in such a way that when the front and back are combined, the front slowly absorbs the ink from the back over the course of a half-day, full day, 3-day period or 7-day period.

This is where the term “migrating ink” comes from: the ink slowly makes its way to the front of the badge over the predetermined amount of time.

Enhanced technology takes the familiar TEMPbadge process and makes it even better

We recently took the TEMPbadge technology that shook up the visitor badge world more than three decades ago and enhanced it to make it a better solution for all of our customers.

We fine-tuned the formula to make it more accurate and more visible, with a brighter red and sharper lines. This technology received a new patent, and our enhanced line of TEMPbadge expiring visitor badges was born.

These enhanced TEMPbadge visitor badges take the best parts of TEMPbadge (innovative technology) and improve them by making them more accurate, more flexible and easier to use — all without increasing the price!
