10 Tips to Get the Most of Your Badge Holders, and Lanyards

Badge Holders and Lanyards are two of the most commonly used products in trade shows, conventions and many other events.Read below to see how you can get the most out of your investment.

1] Maintain Security
Many places of employment require ID badges; they’re great for security, and getting to know all the people around the office.The use of badge holders and lanyards is essential in keeping your ID badges safe and visible.If you know your customers or employees use proximity cards, you may want to try a proximity badge holder.These are great for keeping proximity cards in place and storing them securely.

2] Dress to Impress
For formal settings, we recommend an attached fastener for your badge holders, such as magnetic, pin, or clip, so you can display your information with subtlety.

4] Stand Out
When printing inserts for your badge holders, keep the font as large as possible.You’ll want people to be able to read your name from at least ten feet away.

5] Get to the Point
You’ll also want to make sure that you don’t have too much information on your printed inserts.Simple, concise information which can be seen clearly and read easily is more effective – and if the customer wants to know more, all they have to do is ask you!

6] Get Organized
Printing and alphabetizing your inserts & badges prior to the event is a great way to save time and effort on the day of the event.

7] Take it Easy
For conventions, fund-raisers, and trade shows, you may want the ease-of-use a lanyard brings.Put the lanyard around your neck and clip your badge holder on – it’s as simple as that!

8] Get Your Name Out There
Getting your company’s name and contact information printed on your lanyards is a great way to make sure your company stays in mind after the event.

9] Give People Something Useful Beyond the Event
Take advantage of dual-use lanyards: they carry your badge holders and agenda holders around your neck, and after the event turn into eyeglass retainers.Your event attendees will love them!You may want to consider nicer giveaway items to secure sales from those more promising leads.Neck wallets, water bottles, and other handouts with your logo/information on them are great ways to generate buzz.

Laser engraved on a clear or black acrylic block, the Modern Acrylic Plates can front or back engraved, with each method producing a different look.If engraved from the front of the block, the end result produces a solid looking name plate block; if engraved from the back, the reflections and refractions create a crystal-like appearance.

While the Acrylic Plates make for great upscale, quality name plates, they are also great corporate and individual gifts that can easily be customized and personalized with a message.

Subscribing via RSS Feed:

– What is RSS?

RSS stands for Real Simple Syndication.Basically, it is an easy way for websites/blogs to provide information, news, and updates in an easy and effective manner.

– Why Use RSS?

As more and more web sites and blogs are added to the Internet, it has become increasingly more time consuming to visit every website you enjoy.Instead of visiting each individual website, a RSS feed allows you to easily view one source to see which of the websites you follow have been updated.

Each RSS feed will also provide you with a brief summary of each update, so you can easily browse through your customized list to see which entries are worth further reading.

– How Do I Use RSS?

Name Tag Experience provides a RSS feed that automatically gathers and presents our latest entries, all you have to do is subscribe!

There are a variety of feed readers (programs that allow you to add, sort and display RSS feeds) but this guide will show you how to easy add our feed to Google’s free RSS reader (Google Reader).

If you already have a Google account set up (services like Gmail, Docs, Blogger, Adwords require an account) you’re set – otherwise, it is easy and free to sign up for a Google Account.

Step 4: Voilà!

Optional: If you decide to add our feed directly to your iGoogle homepage (other option in Step 3), it will appear along with all the other widgets you’ve setup for your page.Click on the + icon to open up additional information about each post.
That’s it! Now anytime you log into Google and check Google Reader, the Name Tag Experience Feed will be automatically updated with the latest entries.You can also easily add other RSS feeds to your Google Reader account – so instead of checking multiple websites, you can now log into your Google account and check all of your feeds for the latest updates.
