Great Event Planning Starts with the ID Badge

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.

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!

Meeting and Event ID Badge Creation Made Easy

Planning a meeting or event can be very stressful. There are lots of little details that you have to follow and lots people with questions about every detail you've thought about and some you haven't. Providing identification for all your attendees is vital to the success of your event (learn more about event IDs in this blog post), but it can be a lot of work, too.

Creating ID badges for an event has several steps:
- Print name badges
- Assemble badges in badge holders
- Organize badges
- Attach lanyards

All these little steps can become a big obstacle to your planning if it doesn’t go smoothly!
Shop New EZ Meeting Kit
We wanted to make it easier for our customers when they plan events, so we created the new EZ Meeting Kit. The kit simplifies your event planning by combining all the necessary ID badge items into one easy order.  My favorite item in this kit is the travel case which allows you to organize and sort all your badges ahead of time and transport them easily to your event location.


Sometimes, even the best made plans can fall apart, and the last few days (and hours!) before an event are extra crazy. If you need additional assistance with your event preparations, call the IDville team. Send us your attendee list and name badge design, and we’ll print, assemble, and organize the badges exactly how you need them. We’ll ship the completed badges directly to your event venue, too, so you don’t even have to worry about packing them.

EZ Meeting Kit for your next event to reduce prep time and stress so you can enjoy the event, too!
