Your new hire may not have an office with a view, but he or she probably has an office with a door. And that door needs a name plate. Purchasing a new door name plate likely will be the responsibility of a company supervisor or a staffer in the human resources department. If the decision up to you, you will need to gather the accurate name and position information and select a design.
Choose a sign company or office supplies store that offers customizable name plates. Retail giant Office Depot may be a starting place.
Or, you can order online. This may be the most efficient use of your time because you can customize the name plate from your desk chair.
Verify name and job position. Double check the spelling of the new hire's name and his or her official position. This will prevent having to reorder the name plate--and it will prevent embarrassment.
Design the name plate. Some stores offer an online "design studio." You can customize a blank name plate with different fonts, font sizes and colors. Click to choose a background color and font color. Then type in the words you would like to appear on the sign. Choose your font and upload the company logo by clicking buttons on the screen.
When you are finished designing, follow the website's instructions for payment.
