Convention & Conference Badge Ribbons

From comic conventions to business conferences, badge ribbons are all the rave!

use a badge ribbon with your badge holder at your next convention or conferenceEach badge ribbon obtained from a conference or convention serves a purpose. So, what happens when they are all combined? And where do you put them all? Every badge ribbon is used as an identifier and as a visual stimulant.

Badge ribbons can make someone stand out from a crowd. They are also suggested as an effective way to make an initial introduction and break the ice for those attending a social meeting. These ribbons can be found nearly anywhere, but most badge ribbons are obtained from trade shows, conventions, conferences, meetings or other social functions.

No matter the convention, there are sure to be badge ribbons available to wear on your name badge. Why not make the most of them? And, the more, the merrier!

So, what is a Badge Ribbon?use badge ribbons for identification at a convention or conference

Made from a small piece of ribbon, each convention ribbon typically features titles or basic information about the event. However, the titles can also be silly and inventive. And, while most badge ribbons are text only, full color printing is available for adding pizzazz to any badge ribbon.

Seriously, the sky is the limit when it comes to convention badge ribbons. Feature television or movie quotes on ribbons. Or, provide character names from books or theater productions. But remember to keep in mind the topic and theme of the convention or conference.

Badge ribbons are a fun way to add your unique flair to your convention or conference experience. Using the adhesive strip on the top of each ribbon, attach each one to a badge holder or name tag. And, the best part of each badge ribbon is showing off how many and which ones you have.

These ribbons come in a wide range of styles and colors, and it’s entirely upon the individual to create and distribute their badge ribbons. From funny titles and sayings to identifying attendees and knowing who sponsors and speakers are, badge ribbons will always play an important role at any convention or conference.

fun ribbon titles for any convention or conferenceConference vs. Convention

While conferences and conventions don’t differ significantly, badge ribbons can have a different use at every event. Conventions typically give out ribbons to represent fandoms and current fads. This differs from a conference ribbon which will usually only represent speakers, presenters, ushers, vendors and more. Conference ribbons attach to the bottom of a name badge and help to identify someone’s role at an event. While at a convention, multiple ribbons can express personality rather than only play the role of identification.

 

Badge ribbons are an excellent way to break the ice and stop any awkward stares or uncomfortable moments when someone doesn’t know what to say or how to introduce themselves. Stacking personalized ribbons on name badges is an effective way to identify any role at these events.

So, let your badge ribbon help you to stand out at any event, whether it’s a conference or a convention.

Fall Wedding: Celebrating with Ribbons

Whether large or small, no fall wedding is complete without ribbons!

use fall wedding ribbons for cake servers and utinsels at the reception and dinnerWhat a beautiful time of year to have a wedding. With the cooler air and the crisp fall colors and smells, there is no better time to celebrate a couple’s love for each other. And, with the available dark-colored ribbons, decorating for any fall wedding has never been easier!

From reds and oranges to deep purples and greens, everything about a fall wedding will be a lot more fun with ribbons. Add them to invitations and RSVP cards. And, to keep with tradition, add them to the wedding or groom’s cake. Or, look for something a little less traditional and attach personalized ribbons to balloons.

Use fun, personalized ribbons to secure balloons to a table or other decorative spot. Run a ribbon from the base of each balloon to the table and secure it with a piece of tape or by tying it around a balloon weight. These ribbons should complement or match the balloons so as not to detract from the rest of the decorations. Use multiple strands per balloon for added fun. Or tie pretty bows to the base of each balloon.

Add ribbons into the lighting at the event. By draping ribbons with soft lights, the couple’s chosen colors will pop and dance around the room. Or, tie bows around candles to add to the decorations. But, no matter where the ribbons are used, make sure to include the pretty fall wedding colors to all of the decorations!

Another idea is to incorporate personalized ribbons into the wedding guestbook. Use a ribbon roll and have everyone sign the back of the ribbon length. Or use blank badge ribbons and have guests sign the ribbons and leave special wedding wishes. Once these are signed, put them in a box or a basket for some added color on the table. And the bride and groom are sure to keep these ribbons sitting out in their new home to remind them of their special day.

Be Creative With Flowers

Make them as big as needed, and the cascading ribbons are sure to get the attention they deserve. Ribbon wands are also a great way to send off the bride and groom at the end of the ceremony. Instead of rice or bubbles, have everyone wave these colorful ribbons as the happy couple departs from the venue. And then let each guest keep their wand as a memento of the joyous occasion.

Get super creative and have the wedding guests each hand the bride a flower to add to her bouquet as she walks down the aisle.
