Nonprofit Organizations and Name Tags

From fundraising events to a formal gala, name tags are here to help all of your nonprofit needs.

using name tags and name badges for nonprofit events and identification needsWhile most times a nonprofit has the same personal identification needs as other businesses, often these needs must be met differently. Whether it’s the cost of a name tag or just the efficiency of a reusable name badge, nonprofits are definitely in need of a bit of help.

And, no one ever said any company or organization needed to break the bank for personal identification. No matter what you need, from name tags to ribbons, we’re sure to have it and at an affordable price. So, let’s get started on the items you need the most to get your cause or charity the recognition it deserves.

Keeping Costs Down

speedy badges are the perfect identification tool for nonprofit organizationsUsing reusable name badges is a perfect way to keep any costs low and affordable. Whether your nonprofit has permanent employees or single event volunteers, these quality badges are sure to foot the bill.

Use the printable inserts for Mighty Badges and Speedy Badges to customize your name tags for all of your needs. And, add a logo to make them a bit more memorable. And, if your volunteers want to keep their name tag to remind them of their charitable work, just remove the insert and let them take it home. Then you can reuse the frame or other pieces for your next event.

Need something for a larger group of people? Take our badge holders out for a spin. Similar to reusable name badges, stuff each badge holder with a printable insert. And, use the colored inserts to help coordinate your event. From fundraising and volunteers to running an awareness campaign, these identification tools are perfect for every need.

Providing Awareness and Branding

And, when attending events, add more than just a name to any inserts. Add titles, positions, logos, graphics and so much more. Use each name badge for multiple functions and different events. And stuff each badge with more than just the insert. Include a calendar of events or a little thank you gift.

It seems that most people these days don’t complain too much when wearing a name badge during events such as a convention or a conference. And there are so many reasons why they should be wearing them.

From security issues to just knowing a person’s name, name tags should be readily available for everyone to use. And, if you’re planning one of these conferences, getting the right name tag for your needs should be on your to-do list.

Make a great impression at the next conference, meeting or seminar you host by providing name tags for each attendee. Networking is easy when everyone has a professional name tag, and the low cost won’t destroy your event budget.

Networking with Name Tags

It’s the little things that count, right? And that applies to networking as well.

Andrew Rigie wrote “Why Name Tags And Other Little Details At Events Matter” for Forbes at little less than a month ago. And, we love what he said about networking!

The pressure is always high when you’re hosting a business networking event. Whether it’s a cocktail party for clients, an event to foster new business relationships, or a team building activity for your company, creating the right vibe and experience for attendees is a must. It doesn’t matter if you’re hosting a large event or small, it’s the little details that make a big difference.

wear a name to when networking and make it easier when you know everyone's name

Think for a moment. What does good networking look like? How do people act while networking? What are their attitudes? Most people would agree that a good networker is sincere, friendly and outgoing, supportive and a good listener. It isn’t just about staying in touch. It goes beyond that. A good networker is someone you want to trust and be friends with.

Providing high-quality name tags at networking events is a little detail that makes a big difference. They are worth the extra money. When we host networking events for hospitality industry professionals, we invest in high-quality name tags that stick to clothing using a magnet, instead of those with a pin. We’ve learned that people don’t always want to put a pin through their clothes and that using high-quality magnetic name tags elevates the perceived quality of the event.

Presentation Matters

badge holder cases and custom trays to display your name tags for your next networking eventRemember that people need to find their name tag easily. You don’t want several people milling around a table for too long before they locate their credentials and pass to enter your event. Take into consideration how they will be looking for their name. Are they use to finding their first name or last? And organizing names by a company makes it just the much more manageable.

Use our Badge Holder Cases and Display Trays to make your name tags easily accessible.

Utilize All of Your Tools

While badge holders and name tags are a great item to have on hand for any event, remember that you have other tools available. Try adding badge ribbons to each name tag for a custom look. Design ribbons to correspond with titles or positions at your next event.

While we have over 50 titles available as stock choices, custom ribbons are also available. Choose the color and title that best suits your need. And, if branding is needed, most of our ribbons can have a logo or graphic added.

People sometimes wince at the concept of name tags because they think they make the atmosphere cheesy or they’ve found ‘Hi My Name Is’ stickers stuck to the bottom of their shoes. But guests at our events make positive comments about the magnetic name tags, and they always want to take them home.

Name tags just fit the bill with networking. So, make your next event work even better with custom name tags and name badges.

Gaining Our Wings with Donations

All angels have wings, right?

Coller Industries loves giving back to our community. It’s what helps define our business standards and practices. And, without these donations, we know we wouldn’t be complete. And this contribution goes to a fantastic corporation who knows the exact definition of helping and is helping us to get our wings.

The Arc of King County

From these grassroots origins, the first parents of The Arc fought for their children’s rights to access housing, education, employment, and community resources such as transportation.

Their goal is to further the civil rights movement for all persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities to thrive as equal, valued, and active members of the community.

Brianne Roberson, Office Coordinator at The Arc of King County, summarizes by saying, “We offer supported living, homelessness prevention and civic engagement to promote and protect the rights of people with IDD.”

Donations are part of who we are.

Now all they have to do is print out the easy-to-use inserts and assemble the badges.

“The name badges allow us to be easily identified and help our clients learn our names,” said Roberson. The Arc is using these tags during their Wings for Autism event.

Wings for Autism is back!

Wings for Autism is a program that is designed to alleviate some of the stress that families who have a child with autism spectrum disorders experience when traveling by air. It provides families an opportunity to practice entering an airport, obtain boarding passes, go through security, and board a plane.

The program also gives airport professionals an opportunity to interact and deliver their services in a structured, learning environment.

The next Wings for Autism event is March 3, 2018, at Seattle Tacoma International Airport.

How To Improve Visitor Security

Improving company security and efficiency are constant business goals.

And, using personal identification is a great way to tackle these goals!

using personal identification for visitor control and securityWhen was the last time you didn’t recognize someone in your workplace? Wouldn’t it help to have a way to label everyone who walks in the front door? Whether you work at a school, an office complex or the neighborhood medical clinic, security is always an issue.

While having personal identification for employees is a standard concept, often people find it challenging to make visitors wear name tags or other identifiers. Most schools now have easy access to printable sticky name badges, but many offices don’t have that availability. Reusable name badges are quickly becoming a necessity in these situations.

Speedy badges are great for visitors and increasing your company's securityWhether it’s a Speedy Badge or something a bit more temporary, identification is a must when dealing with security. So, try these three tips to make it a joy to wear a name tag in your office.

Use colors and logos to liven up your visitor name badges.

Sometimes, names just aren’t enough. Each name badge should have a way to identify that the visitor, or employee for that matter, belongs at your workplace. Business runs more smoothly when using company branding. So, don’t forget that when using temporary name tags to include a company logo.

Logo only badges increase security and are a great way to use resuable name badgesAnd, to make it a bit more fun, play around with different colors for different types of visitors. Maybe your school class is going on a field trip. Use one color for teachers and another for a parent volunteer. Use a third color for students so that they stand out from everyone else. And with both plastic and metal choices for logo name tags, the color doesn’t have to be limited to variations on your logo.

Brand your visitors like you brand your employees.

In many office environments, visitors are asked to check in or provide credentials for security measures. And using visitor identification will increase your building’s security. While it is important that visitors are easily recognized, they shouldn’t feel like they don’t belong. So, take your logo one step farther. Help your visitors to feel like they belong a bit better by incorporating your company branding into their name badges as well as the employee badges.

By providing visitors with name badges, your company or corporation will be able to welcome each visitor and help them feel a little better placed. Knowing is half the battle, right? And name tags always help in identifying who is in your building at any given time. Which, in turn, increases your security.
