Custom Lanyards and ID Badges Improve ArtPrize Experience

IDville has a long history of charitable and community involvement. Some of our products have even been used by the crew at Extreme Makeover: Home Edition! This month, our identification products are being put to use by a large event in our backyard of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

This year, the world’s largest art prize event is identifying key participants to improve the event experience for thousands of expected visitors. In 2010, ArtPrize will bring together over 1,700 artists and 1,500 volunteers. New this year, the staff at ArtPrize will use ID Maker software to create name badges for all of the participating artists and volunteers. Each group also has their own custom lanyards.

The ArtPrize staff believes the identification will encourage increased interaction among volunteers, staff, artists and visitors, making the event more memorable for all involved.

As part of their official uniform, ArtPrize volunteers will wear a lanyard with their name prominently displayed in a badge holder. Amelea Pegman, ArtPrize Volunteer Services and Community Development, expects the identification will help to improve the experience for both volunteers and visitors by making volunteers more approachable.

“It will be wonderful and helpful for our volunteers to be identifiable - by name - when they are out working with visitors and representing ArtPrize. IDs will also help to create that special feeling of importance and involvement that we want for our volunteers!”

The badges and custom lanyards will be especially useful identifying volunteers at the many ArtPrize events. “There will be hundreds of people at each of the events that I manage, so having our volunteers, staff, and interns clearly marked with their ID badges and custom lanyards will help our guests identify those individuals who can best enhance and better their event experience,” said Noddea Skidmore, ArtPrize Event Producer.

ArtPrize artists, who exhibit their work in venues throughout downtown Grand Rapids, will also wear clear identification. “The badges and lanyards will be a great way to increase the visibility of artists at the event. Direct interaction between artists and the audience is one of the joys of ArtPrize, and with the artists wearing easily identifiable badges, it'll happen even more this year,” said Kevin Buist, Artist Relations.

While you may not realize it, identification is an important part of successful events outside the office. ID cards serve as a communication tool to identify staff, guests, and participants, and they can improve visibility and approachability of key staff members.

Custom Lanyards Improve Photo ID Card Wear-ability

Once you design and print your photo ID cards, you need to provide a method for your employees, students or staff to display them. Lanyards are one of the most popular ID card display accessories, and many customers prefer to create a custom lanyard for their organization.

Around IDville, our employees use lanyards to express their individual style. Employees get to pick the lanyard of their choice from our sample wall, and many change their lanyard on a regular basis depending on their mood or outfit. Most employees prefer our premium theme lanyards because of their fun and colorful designs. 

I recommend giving your employees the same choice and flexibility when it comes to their everyday lanyard. Get a bundle of different lanyard styles, and let individuals pick the one they prefer. When employees like their lanyards, they’re more likely to wear their photo ID card.

If you want to have a more uniform look to your employee lanyards, create a custom lanyard for your organization. IDville’s Lanyard Wizard walks you through the process to choose the lanyard style that best fits your organization’s needs and budget. You’ll need to know if you want a full color lanyard, like our themed lanyards, or a one color imprint on a colored lanyard.

The next step in creating a custom lanyard is selecting an attachment. The attachment connects to your ID card and impacts how it is displayed. Take your card’s orientation, whether it is one sided or two and its most frequent uses into consideration when you select your attachment.

After that, have fun designing your lanyard! I recommend incorporating your organization’s logo, mascot or corporate values into your custom lanyard design. Since employees will wear their lanyards around the office, in front of customers, visitors and when they go out to lunch., you should utilize the custom lanyards to promote your organization’s image.
