This identification tool is useful in so many ways. They are great for hall and bathroom passes. Not only can you print the name of the pass, but also print something colorful like a logo or graphic, so students are less likely to misplace the pass.

Badge holders are also the perfect solution for parent volunteers for your class or on field trips. Just print the parent’s names on the inserts and then you’ll have a better idea of who came with you the next time your class has a party or outing.

Camping Adventures & Fun With Lanyards

Complete your camping adventure and have fun all with custom lanyards!

camping adventures with custom lanyardsWhether planning a family reunion, a summer youth program or a nature retreat, lanyards add fun and efficiency to any outdoor activity. Custom lanyards are great accessories for all campers and party goers. And, they serve as excellent souvenirs for the memories made while camping or at a family reunion.

Here are some quick tips on how to use custom lanyards while camping or during your summer festivities.

Lanyards are great for necessary camping gear.

custom lanyards are perfect for summer activities such as camping and family reunionsMost campers use a compass to help them navigate through their camping terrain such as the woods or a desert. Knives can come in handy when you need to cut a piece of rope or a tree branch. So, carrying essential camping gear like these on a quality lanyard ensures that these items will not get lost while exploring the great outdoors.

 

Lanyards are also a great idea to keep in camp kitchens and latrines! Use them to hold spices and kitchen utensils. Or, keep small containers of toiletries together for easy use and quick accessability.

And, because lanyards can be worn around a neck or attached to a bag or piece of clothing, hands remain free to engage in camping activities. Setting up a tent, starting a fire and rock climbing all become easier by using this fantastic tool!

Maintaining security and keeping people identified are common camping issues.

For summer programs, campers can wear a name badge or other form of identification to create unity and elevate camp security. Camp leaders need to be able to identify each participant in their program. And, having each camper wear a lanyard with a name badge will help identify those who belong. They also aid in remembering people’s names.

For family reunions, name badges help everyone remember each other’s names and how they are related. If there are other campers around, lanyards help you see who is a part of your group.

Lanyards are also tons of fun!

finding new ways to wear custom lanyards while camping and participating in summer activitiesCampers will love coming up with creative ways to wear their lanyard. Wear it around a wrist like a bracelet, slip it through a belt loop or tie it around an ankle. Try wearing it like a headband or an armband. Or, maybe use it like a shoelace. There are many possibilities, and finding all of them can add an extra dose of fun and creativity to any camping adventure.

Because they are so versatile, custom lanyards are one of the best tools to bring on a camping trip.

Accessorizing Pets with Their Own IDs

Personal identification is a needed accessory for pets too!

animal therapy pets with id badges in a hospital for calming patientsMost companies offer employees personal identification. And this identification usually comes in the form of a name tag or name badge. While name badges are versatile and easy to change for volunteers and temporary staff, name tags provide a uniform look for all personnel. So, why not incorporate office pets into the mix?

Many employers these days have pet policies that allow for workers to either bring pets to work or have therapy animals available during lunches and other breaks. By identifying these animals with a name tag, employees will know that these pets are welcome in the building.

And, if there are service animals around, using proper identification helps people know how to respond to them. Some service animals require that they are left alone, and using name tags will help identify that need.

Name Tags vs. Photo ID Badges

Name tags are perfect for quick information such as your pet’s name and your phone number. And, choosing a custom shape such as a bone, dog or cat can be a fun way to add some creativity to your pet’s tag.

Photo ID badges make the identification process easy. You can include a photo, all pertinent information such as a phone number, address, pet’s name and so much more. These photo IDs are perfect for service animals and including company logos for office pets.

using photo id and name tags for petsDon’t forget to include all the essential information!

Each ID should include at least a name and an owner’s phone number. Other things to add would be an address, the owner’s name and additional information about the animal. If the pet works in an office, the company logo is always a great idea to include. As most owners do not remove name tags or identification from pets, this becomes free company advertising.

Finding A Lost Pet

Not only is a name tag a good idea at work, but it is also good in a general sense. Keep identification on your pets at all times in case they decide to take themselves for a walk. People are more likely to approach a seemingly lost pet if they have a name tag. And, if your information is current on this tag, you won’t have any problems getting them back.

So, whether you are around service animals or have a pet dropping by your office, let’s take a moment to appreciate every pet’s name tag.
