Name badges help guests identify each other at company meetings, fun get-togethers and other events. There's no need to handwrite each name badge if you're expecting several guests. Save time by typing and printing the badges on your computer. Microsoft Word 2000 lets you customise badges of different colours, styles and sizes. You don't have to set the dimensions of name badges each time you create them --- use a predefined template instead.
