[Nick]Nameplate: Bacon Boy

by Maggie 22. June 2015 14:01

Do you have any nicknames for your coworkers or employees? Create a custom engraved nameplate to proudly display them. It’s such a simple way to boost company morale! Here’s an example of one proudly displayed at IDville. It never fails to make me grin! 

It is my honor to introduce you to one of our super-system specialists at the ‘ville, Lee, more commonly referred to as “Bacon Boy.”  

You might be wondering-“How is one deemed the ‘Bacon Boy’?”

Well, the story behind the infamous “Bacon Boy” is really a pretty simple one. Here it is, straight from the horse’s mouth:

Bacon Boy: “During my interview process, Jennifer (sales manager) asked the hard-hitting questions and then informed me that two senior members of the team were going to interview me also.

In walked two experienced system specialists, Jason and Alan. They introduced themselves, and then Jason took over. After a few minutes he turned to Alan for his turn of questioning.

Alan said with a stern face ‘I have one important question. You can take as much time as you need to think about this, but think hard about your answer before you reply. What is your opinion on…bacon?’

I couldn’t decide if I was more shocked by the question at hand or that he was able to hold a straight face while asking it. Little did I know that what I was about to say next would create an identity for me that would stick.  

I said, ‘I think bacon is one of God’s greatest gifts to mankind.’ With the tension broken, I proceed to inform them about a revolutionary way to cook bacon called the bacon weave (shown right). A bacon weave is exactly what it sounds like-strips of bacon woven together to create a blanket of bacon.   

From that moment on, I received multiple inquires to the art of the bacon weave and was deemed bacon boy. They even created a custom nameplate for my special nickname that I display proudly at my desk!”

Well there you have it folks-the story behind the one-of–a-kind nameplate and the nickname.

And nobody ever wonders what Lee will bring as his dish to company potlucks anymore…bacon of course!

If you call in today, you might get lucky enough to talk to this super-system specialist!

Do you know who's who?

Take a look around your office building. Do you see office signs outside of meeting rooms and nameplates on staff member’s desks? If not, you should! Put yourself in the shoes of someone visiting your office for the first time. You walk in and have a meeting with the VP of Marketing in Conference Room #3. However, there’s no lobby area or signs to direct you to where you need to go. Not only does it help outsiders know where to go, it also creates a feeling of professionalism and camaraderie throughout your office! 

When choosing office signs and nameplates, there are a lot of options out there. I’ve highlighted several options that are sure to accompany your signage needs. 

        Know who's who in your office building!

Full Color Nameplates

by david 29. September 2010 09:25

New in the IDville nameplate offering are full color nameplates. In addition to our traditional engraved nameplate options, you can add a full color logo or go crazy with a colorful design on your wall or desk sign. 

Nameplates are common in many business settings. They help to identify personnel, resources and facilities. For instance, displaying a desktop nameplate is common in most bank lobbies. A bank feels more friendly and welcoming when each of the tellers is identified by name at their station.

Shop Full Color Signs

At IDville, we use nameplates as a communication tool. Each of our employees has a nameplate outside their office with their name and the year they started. Employees can rely on the nameplates to find where co-workers sit and how long they’ve been with the company.

All of our meeting rooms are also labeled with nameplates. This helps to reduce confusion for new employees and visitors.

Now you can show off your organization’s flair by including your full color logo on each nameplate. It’s great brand exposure, especially if customers frequently visit your facility. The new full color nameplates are going to be popular! 

How are you using nameplates in your organization? Will you use nameplates differently now that you can customize them will full-color artwork? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
