You should make a point of ensuring there are name tags for your events. This is what makes it easier for people to approach each other. It is easier for people to talk when they are on a first name basis. The kind of name tags you have made for the event matters. There are things you can do to ensure they are the best you can have.
You need to make name tags that are easy to wear. They should not leave the clothes of the wearer spoilt. You should consider getting lanyards, clips, and magnetic ones.
Reading them should be instantiations. Avoid going for complicated fonts and haphazard spacing. They should be legible from a good distance. The font size should be big enough. Squinting to read people’s names puts them off.
The face of the tag need not have too much information. The space provided there does not allow for such mistakes. You only need to put a person’s two names, and maybe their organization.
If possible, include their social media handle. You need to in this modern world. This makes it easier for others to follow them, without having to ask them to spell out those handles.
You cannot afford to have spelling mistakes on the name tag. This can easily be gotten when the guests write their names out on the RSVP cards. This is a way of avoiding offending anyone by misspelling their names.
You need to them match the theme of the tags with that of the organization. You have the choice of putting the company logo, or of using the company colors on it.
It is best to have adjustable name tags. This is how you ensure different people are comfortable wearing the tags you have prepared.
You should also make arrangements to have the means to print a few tags at the event, for those who may have confirmed their attendance when you had already finifhsed the main batch. It looks bad when some people have propel printed tags, while others have handwritten ones.
The back face of the name tag can also come in handy, where you include the schedule of activities of the event on it. You will thus have a way of keeping your guests organized.
The material used to make the tag also matters. Thin paper ones shall not last that long. Those are susceptible to spoiling rather easily. If possible, get ones that are made out of hard vinyl or plastic. They will not spoil as easily.
You can opt for custom made name tags. That level of personalization ensures proper functioning, and your guests shall appreciate having them on.
