We’ve all been to one occasion where a name tag was required. Imagine replacing one of those awful sticky badges with a stylish, sophisticated ID Card Holder from elago.

Accessory designer, elago, created the ID Card Holder with the techie in mind. It’s simple, but functional and even includes a hidden spot where you can slide a thin profile flash drive into it (sold separately). It comes equipped with a silicone coated neck lanyard (37 inches long) and the ID holder itself. The ID Card Holder will fit cards up to 2.12 x 3.34 inches, or about the size of a standard business card. The card holder is made of a durable polycarbonate.

elago’s ID Card Holder actually has the prestige of being one of the 2014 Red Dot Award winners for Product Design. It won this honor for its simplicity and aesthetically pleasing design.

To be honest, I had my doubts about this product at first. I just wasn’t sure if a high-design ID holder was something I needed. But, once I got my hands on one of these delightful badge holders, I can’t imagine having anything other than this for conferences or meetings.

I think that the USB flash drive slip on the back is ingenious. It’s meant to keep flash drives from getting lost and keeping them close at hand. With that and the ID Card Holder’s unique design, it becomes part of your personal branding and really shows you off as you meet new people. In my opinion, having the elago ID Holder makes a much better first impression than a sticky-backed “Hello, My Name Is” badge does.
