using star shaped name tags for employee certifications encouragement“I wanted to have certifications for each of our products,” Hannah, our Customer Service Manager, explained. I was originally going to do a sticker board but Traci, our Assistant Customer Service Manager, had the idea for star name tags. We’re a name tag company, so why not use name tags?”

To better assist our customers in their ordering process, customer service is available to help process orders, answer product questions and overall be there for each person as needed. Meaning that each customer service representative needs to know how to use all of our products.

“I love the stars!” Traci exclaimed. “Hannah and I talked about certifications in products as a good recognition program. We wanted a way to move our team through training with a visual element of everyone’s progress. We had talked about a chart or certificates, but we were so happy when we thought of tags. Because, after all, we are a name tag company.”

Photo IDs Aren’t Just For People

In a touching story from a few years ago, we all learn that it doesn’t matter your position in life, everyone can wear a name tag!

To be easily identified in the hospital wards, Ralf, a Giant Schnauzer, must wear a Photo ID on his collar. Ralf has been working miracles by getting kids back on their feet after their operations. He sits with them during treatments or takes them on walks around The Royal Children’s Hospital.

 

An excerpt from Ralf, by Anne Crawford

therapy hospital dog wearing photo id name tag name badge“It was late March 2012 when Caroline Lovick discovered that the family pet, Ralf, a Giant Schnauzer, had become famous. Ralf was a ‘therapy dog’ at The Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, padding the wards every week with Caroline, visiting young patients who were ill and injured, helping in their recovery in often remarkable ways. A daily newspaper published a story on 20 March about the ‘miracle’ pooch and the effect he was having on children and adolescents, with a photo of a toddler, Zeke Harrison, who had a rare genetic disease, walking the corridors of the hospital next to the huge black dog. The article and picture of the chubby-legged infant wearing a nasal-gastric tube went from Melbourne to Sydney to newspapers in the United Kingdom and the US, and then spread on the internet. The story took off in Europe. Spain. Turkey. India. Chile. A German radio station sent a crew to Australia to record a show on Ralf. Dawn French, the British comedienne, posted Ralf on her Facebook page. A woman called Karla from Donegal sent him a gift of engraved dog tags on behalf of the people of Ireland. Caroline had always known that there was something special about the dog that looks you directly in the eyes from beneath his shaggy forelock and bushy brows with kind brown eyes. But she wasn’t prepared for this. Ralf had gone global.”

Name Tags and Spooky Holidays

Many people these days tend to get the order of the holidays all mixed up. We start seeing Christmas decorations too early and forget some of the holidays that should count a little bit more. While Halloween is a holiday most people remember, sometimes it does get a little overlooked.

So, what do name tags have to do with the most popular dress-up holiday ever?

Try adding some flair to an office party with custom shaped name tags for that special day. Choose from one of our pre-designed styles or custom design one all your own. While we do not encourage complicated designs, we do encourage uniqueness and originality. Choose a black cat or a wooden color cross. Or, create a bat or pumpkin. Too complicated? Custom design a name tag or name badge and add a spooky logo.

Make a name tag part of a Halloween costume.

Do you know where this one would belong?

Another great idea is to create your own custom signs. Choose a fun font with your own spooky message and logo. Or, make signs that go with office decor or party ideas. Use this orange sign to hang on your door when you run out of treats on Halloween night, or simply get tired of answering the door bell and missing all your party guests.

Need more ideas? Use adhesive name badges for Halloween games and activities. From a quick game of “Who Am I?” to a fun way to introduce everyone at an office or home party, these quick and cheap name badges are great for any amount of fun!

Dress up your Halloween party with Halloween designs on personalized name tags, name badges and signs and have a Happy Halloween! But don’t forget to get your order in now so that it will arrive in time for the holiday!
