TROY, MI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 31, 2006 -- Badge Supports, LLC recently launched a new website to provide online sales of the Nerd Buster Support®, a lightweight, invisible badge support that protects clothing and orients ID badges for better visibility and security.

"For years, only nerds were considered to wear pocket protectors," said Edouard A. Piché, creator of the patented Nerd Buster Support and founder of Badge Supports, LLC. "With the heightened awareness about security since 9/11, many companies have implemented stringent employee guidelines to visibly display photos and ID badges. Our invisible plastic badge support is uniquely designed to take the 'nerd' out of wearing a pocket protector. Thus the name Nerd Buster."

The Nerd Buster comes in two different styles, both of which protect the wearer's clothing from wrinkling and tearing and can be easily trimmed to fit most pocket sizes. There is a plain model with no pockets and another with two clear pockets that allows wearers to carry business cards, appointment calendars, notes or other items. Space is available on both models to allow a company to imprint artwork, name or promotional message. There is also a tab for the wearer to attach a service or decorative pin at the top of the support.

"The support is ideal for heavier badges, some of which contain microchips for facility entry or identification," said Piché. "Neck lanyards and IDs worn at the belt may be handy but do not always positively orient the badge for maximum visibility." The Nerd Buster badge support provides greater flexibility, less likelihood that a badge will be lost, and allows the badge to be easily removed for use in a magnetic card reader or to present to a security guard.

According to Piché, the company's badge supports are a welcome addition to businesses where security is essential, such as offices, manufacturing and medical facilities. The Nerd Buster also provides a very affordable and efficient means for trade show exhibitors and advertisers that want to reinforce their brand or promotional message.

Plasti-Fab of Ferndale, Michigan, a company with 50 years of experience manufacturing plastic products, produces the support.

Badge Supports' website, which provides online purchasing, was developed and is supported by CheckEngine USA, a web development company that specializes in fully accessible and standards compliant websites.
