Our official name tag templates consistently identify individuals and their association with the university.

Permanent name tags

An official format for name tags has been developed to ensure consistent placement of the block IOWA logo, as well as font and color usage. Permanent name tags are produced on a hard plastic material, and include a magnetic back. Individuals may choose to include their name and up to two other forms of identification, as listed below.


  • Block IOWA logo
  • First and last name

Choose up to two:

  • Individual's pronouns
  • Individual's college, division, or unit name
  • Individual's title
