Nametags are usually associated with business, entrepreneurship, and military but if we think and evaluate the meaning of nametags, we get to know they have other uses as well.
In military name, tags are used to give a serial number and name to the soldiers. Similarly, we see the concept of nametags in sports; however, it is somewhat different from the nametags we are talking about here. We see players with t-shirts that have their names on it. That is kind of a norm in every sport, but during training, the instructor can give its students their own name tags which can work as an identification tool for the instructor. The types of nametags that can be designed for basketball players are listed here:
This is one of the basic concerns while getting a name tag. The type of design you want to make can look better on one material as compared to another.

Circles and rectangles are the typical shapes of nametags, but you can customize any shape you want as well. Moreover, by customizing the typical circles and rectangles, you can give these nametags a completely different look as well.
