Saying “Thank You” In 3 Exciting New Ways

Expressing appreciation and saying thank you doesn’t have to be hard.

How often do we utilize all the tools we have? And how often do we realize the full extent of them? Sometimes saying thank you and name tags go hand in hand. That means these personalized tools don’t always have to be used as identification in a store or office. Name tags are so much more than that!

And, to prove that notion, here are a few fun ways to let someone know just how much you care.

Engrave a new name tag with someone’s favorite thing.

With several different available printing processes, engraving isn’t the only option here. Make it as colorful as you need with full color printing, or choose specific bright colors that will stand out with a UV logo.

Name tags don’t just have to be for names. Give your best friend a new title such as “Greatest Friend Ever” or “Best BFF.” Choose their favorite color from the wide variety of plastic and metal materials and make your thank you just as unique as the recipient.

Make your appreciation memorable with a personalized desk wedge.

Whether it’s a job well done, or for a friend who has been there through the thick and thin, sometimes a thank you needs a little bit more. Choose from our unique desk wedges and acrylic blocks something that will suit just about anyone. Each wedge will feature a special message for that special someone.

Sometimes, just remembering is the name of the game.

While it is easy to remember to say thank you for many things, sometimes the little things go without notice. If you need a little help in recognizing to say thank you, try ordering a customized sign that will remind you on a daily basis to watch for those little things. Or, order a bunch of name tags with a simple engraved message expressing your appreciation and give them out to friends, family or co-workers.

Operation of Hope provides free, life-changing surgery and health care for children in desperate need and creates a self-sustaining program of hope through education. They are building a growing network of medical professionals that serve patients in desperate needs, so that every child has the hope of a normal life.

Operation of Hope has been a functioning organization since 1989 and performs free surgeries for children all over the world. They are currently celebrating one of their recent surgeries that was performed for Blessing Makwera.

When Blessing was 14 years old, he found a landmine detonator in a field where he lived in Zimbabwe, Africa. Blessing thought the metal object was a small electric motor. He inserted the detonator between his teeth to free his hands so he could work. In 2009, two years after the accident, the Operation of Hope Team was donating a facial reconstructive surgical mission in Zimbabwe to help those afflicted with birth defects such as cleft-lips and palates. After hearing about Operation of Hope on Zimbabwe’s only radio station, Blessing took a 6-hour bus ride by himself into the capital city of Harare so he could meet this team of volunteer surgeons.

Operation of Hope received plastic laser engraved name tags. “These name tags are for the local Zimbabwean Operating Room Staff that we partner with in Harare, Zimbabwe. These are especially helpful as we usually use paper name tags and they do not last as long nor do they look as wonderful and as professional as these do!” exclaimed Jennifer Trubenbach, CEO & Mission Director at Operation of Hope.

We are grateful for organizations such as Operation of Hope. And these donations are truly something that helps us stand out from our competition.

Create your own unique way to identify your baggage during the holidays. With the holidays nearing rapidly, many people are starting to plan for their holiday travels. In the process of booking flights, packing your bags and getting to your destination, one minor detail can be overlooked. How do you find your bags at the airport or train station once you get to where you need to be? How about personalized, custom luggage tags!

With so many different types of luggage tags to choose from, trying to find custom luggage tags that meet your needs and expectations can be tough. When people think of luggage tags, typically they picture credit card sized plastic tags that require an insert you write your name and address on. While these type of tags are useful, why not create something that is unique and special to you?

Many of our name tag products can be used to create personalized tags for your luggage. Laser engrave plastic name tags with your name and address. Or, print them in full color with a logo or background to really make them personal and easier to see when trying to locate them on a busy, spinning baggage carousel.

Stock Template Plastic Tags

Choose from eleven professional templates to create a laser engraved luggage tag. Multiple colors are available in this two-ply plastic material. Each tag will be engraved with text that you choose. These make the design easy and also provide an inexpensive way to go custom.

Custom Design Plastic Luggage Tags

Use your own custom design for your laser engraved luggage tag. Create your own text with a special font and request a punched slot for easy attaching to your baggage.

Full Color Tags

Show your creativity with full color, digital printed name tags on a plastic material. The thermal transfer process captures your logo in crisp, bright full colors. The logo and background color may extend off the tag (bleed) and text can be printed in any color. These are truly the most unique way to go! And don’t forget to request the punched slot to attach these to any luggage you have.
