Identify your Employees’ Awesomeness

by Kelli 4. March 2015 16:38

In America, the #1 reason most people leave their jobs is because they don’t feel appreciated. With Employee Appreciation Day coming up this Friday the 6th, there’s still time to plan something fun that will let your employees know you appreciate them.

Try one of these simple IDville ideas:

•    Use a badge printer to create incentive cards that you can reward your employees with. Some examples would be a card that says “Leave 30 Minutes Early on the Day of your Choosing,” “One Free Casual Day,” etc.
•    Create a safety awareness program by rewarding all employees who wear their badges daily.
•    Design a custom lanyard that says, “We appreciate you.” or “My Boss Thinks I’m Extra Awesome.”
•    Small companies can reprint employee badges with fun new titles for the day or week “Purveyor of Potlucks,” “Queen of Sales,” “Master of getting things done!” “Ms. Indispensable,” “Chief FUN Officer,” etc.
•    Host a “security” meeting to remind employees why proper identification is critical to your business’s overall success. All employees use their name badge to enter into a drawing for a prize.

Think of recognition programs as an investment, not an expense. With even a little bit of recognition, employee engagement has been shown to increase by 60%!

Of course, our parent company, Baudville features a wide variety of gifts perfect for celebrations like Employee Appreciation Day! And there’s still some time to show the love to your team this week. Have fun!

Custom lanyards let you be choosy!

by Kayla 30. October 2012 09:05
Does your company currently use lanyards to display ID badges? If not, the variety available should make you reconsider!

Custom lanyards are a great way to tell your organization’s story – share themes, branding, and company logo consistently! They’re also a great way to ensure employees don’t damage, misplace, or lose their ID cards, which can be costly to replace. 

Custom lanyards aren’t just for employee ID badges, though! Specialized lanyards are a great addition to a company outing or event. Many associations and trade groups use them for conferences and shows. Include them in employee gifts or give them out to build buzz around special promotions throughout the year. A custom lanyard is a versatile part of a new employee welcome package.

Personalized lanyards need not be expensive, either! Check out our line of quality custom lanyards for as low as .35 each! What an inexpensive way to encourage company branding and promotion among employees!
Be choosy about your lanyard!

Great Event Planning Starts with the ID Badge

by david 21. March 2012 08:35

When planning a meeting or event, there are lots of important details to track: venue, food, transportation, attendees, and more. With so many details to look after, it can be easy to forget one. Unfortunately, many event planners consider IDs an afterthought, yet event ID badges are an important part of a successful event. Incorporating ID badges into the early stages of event planning can save you both time and money.

Save Money on Custom Lanyards. Popular at events, custom lanyards enhance the attendee experience. When planning an event, consider ordering your custom lanyards early in the planning process. Ordering lanyards early will increase your options since some low cost custom lanyards require a 4-6 week production time.

Shop New EZ Meeting Kit
Simplify your event ID badges with the new EZ Meeting Kit.

Before you place the order for your custom lanyards, take time to think about the appropriate lanyard attachment for your event. Consider the types of activities you have planned for attendees and whether or not a breakaway feature is important.

Save Time with Data Setup. When you design your event ID badge early in the planning process, you’re able to collect attendee data to accommodate the badges. If you know what information you want to display, you can organize the information accordingly. For example, you can create separate columns for first and last name, instead of grouping them together in your spreadsheet. This will save you time when you’re ready to print the event ID badges!

Save Time at Registration. When you have all your ID badges complete ahead of your event, you’ll be able to make the registration process fast and efficient for event attendees. Organize the completed badges so they will be easily accessible when registering attendees. Also be sure to pack ID badges in a travel case that is easy to transport and won’t move your badges out of order.

By incorporating your event ID badges early into the event planning process, you’ll not only save time and money, but you’ll save yourself stress, too!

Custom Vivid Color Lanyards Enhance your ID Cards

by david 7. December 2011 09:14
ID cards are an important security feature for every organization, and you can make them even more effective with the right ID card accessory. Vivid color lanyards are one accessory option that will enhance your ID cards and promote your organization's brand.

Made of a soft poly-satin fabric, the vivid color lanyard is comfortable and durable for long term wear. Begin the customization process, and you'll find that vivid color lanyards are a blank canvas! Dye-sublimated technology allows for any custom design to be created within the lanyard's soft material.

Custom vivid color lanyards are a great addition to any identification strategy. Here are a few examples of vivid color lanyards being used to their full potential.

Custom Printed Lanyards
Create your own vivid color custom lanyards.

Create Custom Lanyards for Events. The custom vivid color lanyard is a great option for events, conferences, or tradeshows. This lanyard is best for displaying color logos and the soft fabric makes it comfortable to wear all day long. We donated custom vivid color lanyards to Art Prize, a large art competition in Grand Rapids, for all the artists. They were a big hit! You can learn more about the use of the lanyards at the event here on the IDville blog.

Create Custom Lanyards for Schools. Prepare for the back to school rush by ordering custom lanyards for all your students and staff. One of our school customers assigns a different color lanyard to each grade, so it's easy to visually identify students, even from a distance. Plus, with the full color customization option, you can display your school mascot and promote safety and school spirit at the same time!

Create Custom Lanyards for Businesses. Put forward a professional image with your business ID cards and accessories by designing coordinating ID cardsand vivid color lanyards. One of our retail store customers ordered custom vivid color lanyards for its entire staff from IDville. The lanyards clearly displayed the store's full color logo and tag line in front of customers.

Promote Student ID Cards with Custom Lanyards

by todd 3. March 2011 17:01

It can be impossible to get children to do what you want them to do. I should know - I have three daughters! Each of them has their own amazing personality…and a stubborn streak of independence. Sometimes it feels like they fight everything I say!

Getting students to wear their ID cards can also feel like a never ending battle. Many schools have ID card policies in place requiring students to wear their ID cards or face repercussions. Schools can take a more positive approach to the situation by incentivizing kids to wear their ID cards with fun ID card accessories, like custom lanyards.

Custom lanyards are a great option for students. Lanyards are an appropriate display options for students because they keep student ID cards in constant view. You can also choose enhanced features like breakaway lanyards and antimicrobial lanyards that ensure children’s safety.

Shop IDville's Custom Lanyard Options
Custom lanyard options offered by IDville.

There are several ways you can encourage kids to wear their ID cards with custom lanyards. Here are a few of my suggestions. Share your own strategies and ideas in the comments!

 Promote the School Mascot. Tap into students’ school spirit with custom lanyards that feature your school mascot, logo, and colors. These custom lanyards will be both a sign of safety and school spirit.

 Create Sports Lanyards. Encourage students to support their favorite school team by creating custom lanyards for each sport. Students can even rotate their custom lanyards according to the seasons!

 Classroom Lanyards. Promote camaraderie among students by creating custom lanyards for classrooms or grade levels. For instance, all students in the third grade can wear purple lanyards that say “Bertha Vos Third Grader” and the fourth graders can have a different color. The colors will also help teachers and staff easily identify children.

 Flair for Custom Lanyards. Once you’ve created your own custom lanyards  (the options are endless!), let students decorate their lanyards with lapel pins and stickers. Create classroom rewards that students can display on their custom lanyards to create an ID card accessory that not only promotes safety, but pride as well!
