Gift giving is one of the best ways to stay socially connected because you can do it from anywhere. No matter how far you are from the recipient, sending them a beautifully wrapped gift makes you feel closer together.

To form a deeper social connection between you and the recipient, wrap your gift using Custom Ribbon Rolls. Made of high-quality material, these ribbons let you share a unique message with the other person. Adding this personal touch shows the recipient how much they mean to you.

Why does social connection matter?

There are so many benefits to strengthening your social connections. Scientific studies have found that connecting with others not only makes you happier, but it also helps you live longer. It reduced stress levels, which in turn improves your immune system and general well-being. If you want to receive these health benefits, then making a greater effort to deepen your relationships is key.

On top of health benefits, social connections also help you reach your professional goals. By building relationships with people at work and in your community, you form a strong network of people who trust your abilities and are willing to support your business.

Award ribbons can be a flat piece of ribbon, such as our prize ribbons, or a fancier use of a ribbon material, such as a rosette.

Retirement & Planning the Perfect Party

Getting from a job to having a career is a goal for which most people strive. And once you have this career, sticking to it can be difficult. When someone reaches certain milestones on this career path, it is always worth celebrating. And the best milestone anyone can reach is retirement.

Once someone has retired (whether for age or tenure), they deserve recognition for their hard work. Celebrating this incredible feat with a party is the perfect way to honor the retiree. And this party will take planning! Here are some easy party suggestions to use to ensure that any retirement party goes off without a hitch.

So, let’s get that retirement party planned!

The first thing to remember is that this party is for one person: the retiree. So make sure it is planned according to their tastes. From the party’s theme (which every event planner you ask will say is a must) to serving drinks and refreshments, everything must be something the retiree will enjoy.

And the best way to accomplish this is to ask the retiree what they want. Don’t guess at what they would find enjoyable, even if you have known them for a while. Make sure they want a party, and that they want to be there. Ask them who they want to attend and where they want to have the party hosted. After all, it is their retirement.

This party is a great way to express your gratitude toward the retiree. It will help those in attendance reflect on all of the things this person accomplished during their chosen career. So, the next thing to remember is to make sure everyone in attendance understands what part they need to play in showing this gratitude. The more memorable you can make the party, the more the retiree will feel how much they impacted your life during their career.

Pieces of the Party (Don’t forget the ribbons!)

Guernsey Rosettes are the perfect gift for a retirement party.

You already have the theme and the guest list, now what does your party look like?

  • Speeches: Whether it is a toast given by the boss or short remembrances shared by everyone in attendance, the retiree is sure to feel the love with speeches prepared about them. Once the speech has been presented to the retiree, give them a printed copy of it tied up with a ribbon.
  • Music: Use comical songs like “Another One Bites the Dust” by Queen for sending off your cherished co-worker. A timeless tune to have playing in the background at your party is “Happy Trails” by Roy Rogers. And spice up your decorations around the DJ’s table with ribbon rolls with some song lyrics imprinted in a bright color.
  • Refreshments: Cake, drinks and finger sandwiches are only a start to the list of yummy foods you can have at your retirement party. From sweet to salty, pick your retiree’s favorite foods and make sure they are on the menu. Don’t forget that ribbons are now your best friend especially for decorations for the snack tables and room centerpieces. You can put them everywhere!
  • Games: Does your retiree love Scrabble? Or is there another game that fits their personality to a t? No matter which games are chosen, get everyone involved in making new memories with their old friend. Use badge ribbons or rosettes and create a game specifically for the party.
Rosewood and Floating Acrylic Plaques are perfect for any retirement gift.
  • Recognition: You’re going to miss the retiree. So, why not celebrate them with an award! From an extravagant rosette ribbon to an award plaque, create something that reflects the importance that for which the retiree has worked so hard.
  • Favors: Make all the attendees something to take home that will always remind them of the fun and wonderful times they had with the retiree. You can even ask the retiree for help on this. Then wrap it up and tie a ribbon around it with the retiree’s name imprinted in their favorite color.

After the Retirement Party

Your final planning task is to make sure that both your retiree and attendees have a way to stay in contact with each other. Use a memory book that people can post a picture in and then sign with contact details. Or encourage the use of social media. But, no matter what you choose, make sure both the attendee and retiree are happy to participate.

Using this information to plan a retirement party accordingly, will make it not seem like a huge task, and your party will be the best ever.

Traveling Ribbons: The Perfect Branding Tool

We’ve coined a new phrase: traveling ribbons! But what exactly does that mean?

Branded ribbon rolls are perfect to use as traveling ribbons on goody bags an other treats.

From badge ribbons to ribbon rolls and everything in between, adding personalization to ribbons helps your brand recognition. Especially when these ribbons are attached to things (products or services) that make it out of your reach. These “things” can be anything from goody bags at events to items from your storefront adorned with strips from a ribbon roll. Don’t have a storefront? That’s okay. Attach a small ribbon strip to a flier discussing your services and hand them out. So, there you have it: traveling ribbons!

How can traveling ribbons help you get your message into the public’s hands?

That’s easy! After all, the idea behind a traveling ribbon is that it travels to your customer in place of you. Remember that all ribbons aren’t equal because they can’t all do the same things. But, don’t think that one ribbon type is better than another. Grab your nearest personalized ribbon and figure out how it can become a traveling ribbon.

Promoting Your Business

Personalized ribbon is a subtle yet powerful marketing tool. So, how do you make these traveling ribbons work for you? First, choose a ribbon color that matches your brand. Then, have us imprint your website, logo and any other text in a corresponding color. Next step, use them everywhere!

Decorate your store with them. Attach them to products you sell, either in your store or at events. You can even hand out ribbon strips during events your business is attending. Use personalized ribbon rolls to wrap products, gifts and more. And, don’t forget those fliers adorned with your branded ribbons! Customers are sure to appreciate the custom touch, and then your ribbon will help them remember your business.

Hacking Personalization for Your Traveling Ribbons

One of our favorite ways to use a badge ribbon or other flat award ribbon is as a bookmark. That way, when your customers are reading in public, others not only see the book, but they also get curious about the imprinting on the ribbon the reader is holding.

Now, when that traveling ribbon has your logo and brand imprinted on it, people will start to recognize who you are. Traveling ribbons are an effective way to drive consumers straight toward your business. But remember to keep your logo and text consistent so that your brand stands out. No matter the size of your business, traveling ribbons are here to help.

These ribbons not only help promote your brand to current customers, but they also get your brand into the hands of potential customers. By simply adding these fun and fancy adornments to treat bags at a grand opening, or tying them to products throughout your store, these ribbons are guaranteed to travel. Once a current customer uses your product, they are sure to either pass on your ribbon or use it for something else.

Even if your ribbon is taken off a treat bag and thrown haphazardly onto a desk, it is sure to attract attention. Oh, everyone will want that treat! But, more importantly, they will want to know where they can get some too. So, now your ribbon becomes that great traveling marketing item you need. So, what are you waiting for? Get your traveling ribbons today!

Making Ribbon Flair Work for You

We all have them. Lanyards and lanyards of name badges and badge holders we have received over the years. We get them as we attend conference after conference. Whether these conferences were for our jobs or entertainment, we still all have at least a couple of these event name tags hanging around somewhere.

You only wear them while you are at the conference, so why do you still have them? Is it the lanyard that makes the name tag so special? What about the name tag itself? Do we cling to everything that has our name emblazoned on it? Or, is it simply because we want to remember what we did while at that particular conference or convention? Or maybe, it’s because of all the RIBBON FLAIR!

From cosplay to ancestry conventions, ribbon flair is everywhere.

Badge ribbons are a tradition that started at sci-fi conventions. World Con (where the world’s supposed first cosplayer was present), may have started this trend. To quickly identify the role of other staff members, World Con employees put ribbons on their badges that denoted positions such as “Dealers,” “Artists” and “Guest of Honor.” World Con attendees took notice and made their own, silly badge ribbons to share with fellow fans. Today, you can find ribbons being passed out at many Sci-fi conventions and Anime cons as well.

So what are they? Badge ribbons are little colorful, often shiny ribbons with a phrase printed on them and an adhesive strip to attach it to your badge or to another ribbon. The standard size is four inches by one inch and five-eighths. They can be custom ordered on many websites, and a pack of fifty can range from twenty-five to forty dollars. Depending on which site you use, the ribbons can be made in any color, with any phrase and any simple image.

Much like the above author, we find that these little ribbons can cause excitement around any event booth. Everyone must have one to add to their name badge. And, with the nearly endless printing possibilities, these badge ribbons are the perfect marketing and networking tool to have at any event.
