Your Identity: in Just One Word!

Think of the last time you were at a concert or a ballgame, surrounded by thousands of people laughing and talking and yelling at the same time. Your brain was working overtime to filter the external noise in order to converse with the person next to you. The brain is an amazing tool and uses its power to get this filtering job done.

Out of all the words being filtered through your brain, there is one word that will capture your attention even when mumbled by someone far away. It is your name. Your name is the most recognizable word in the universe for you. If you’re ever in a crowded place and you yell, “MOM,” you will immediately get every mom to stop whatever they’re doing and look at you.

For my name, Maggie, I am often alerted to people nearby who are talking about their dog… Thanks for that, mom and dad! There have been many times when “Maggie went to the bathroom in the middle of the living room again,” or “Maggie jumped on the neighbor and licked her face.” I always have to turn to the people around me and say, “Sorry, I just couldn’t control myself!”

But back to my point- names are important, and they get our attention.

There is a reason why Coca-Cola did the “Share a Coke” campaign this past summer. If you are not familiar with this campaign, Coca-Cola changed all of their can and bottle packaging to say “Share a Coke with ‘insert name.’”

 

 

They sold more than 250 million named bottles and cans in a nation of just under 23 million people. There was an overwhelming demand for personalized cans, and this campaign was a massive success. Lucie Austin, who at the time was director of marketing for Coca-Cola South Pacific, shared some good insight in an interview published by Jay Moye.

She said, “At the end of the day, our name is the most personal thing we have. It’s our fingerprint… our identity… in one word. We gave consumers an opportunity to express themselves through a bottle of Coke, and to share the experience with someone else. The fact that your name is on a Coke bottle, it can’t get more personal than that! The campaign capitalized on the global trend of self-expression and sharing, but in an emotional way.”

So what does all of this have to do with IDville’s product? EVERYTHING! Identity is the name of our game. From workplace safety to community, we’re here to help you!

Office Signage – A Simple Way to Take Professionalism to the Next Level

Think of how you felt the first time you walked into a new office building. You probably didn’t know where anything was and you may have even got lost on your way to someone’s office or a meeting or two. Clearly marking offices and meeting spaces with nameplates and office signage is not only convenient for new hires and guests, it also adds a feeling of professionalism to the building and to the company as a whole.  

New employees, visitors, vendors and anyone else entering your building for the first time will likely make a snap judgment about the company as a whole based on what they observe. The professional image of your company will be improved by installing nameplates outside of each office, cubicle and meeting room. 

Giving new hires a personalized nameplate will certainly increase their sense of belonging. They’ll immediately feel like part of the team if they have their very own nameplate just like everyone else. They’ll feel much more welcome and it will show them you’re prepared and excited to have them on board. Not to mention the tension that will be reduced by being able to find their way around the building with ease if offices and meeting spaces are identified. 

IDville has a full line of office signage to bring your company’s professional image to the next level. Whether you’re looking for custom-engraved desktop nameplateswall- and door-mount signagecubicle nameplates or personal name tags for your team, IDville has just what you’re looking for.

There are many do-it-yourself signage options which are created using our blank paper stock and can be designed right at your desk, using our free templates, and printed from any printer. 

We can even get your custom nameplate or signage order shipped same day as long as final artwork is approved before 4:00 p.m. EST. After all, you shouldn’t have to wait for great products!
