No matter the size of your family, getting everyone together in one place and at one time is a massive undertaking. And making sure that everyone in attendance knows each other can be a daunting task.
From colors to fun titles like Cousin or Great-Aunt, badge ribbons are an excellent way to identify people. Start with name badges so that everyone won’t be guessing people’s names all day. Then, attach badge ribbons to familiarize each other with how they are related. Create custom ribbons with words such as father, aunt, cousin, sister or choose the last name to indicate from which family line they originate.
Fundraisers are also a common place to see badge ribbons.
These ribbons are a fantastic tool for identifying a cause or support group for each fundraiser. Choose a color, such as pink for breast cancer support or a rainbow ribbon for autism supporters, and then add a title or function for the wearer to attach to their name badge. Stacking personalized ribbons on name badges is an effective way to identify any role at these and other events.
Networking and Meeting New People
Titles are a typical thing to see imprinted on badge ribbons. However, use your imagination and come up with fun things to add to these promotional ribbons. They don’t always have to be professional. Add silly things that will make them memorable such as Coffee Fiend or Here For The Food. Let attendees pick out something that describes their personality so others at a conference or corporate meeting will feel more at ease.
Badge ribbons are inexpensive and come in both horizontal and vertical designs and can be customized to meet any need for any function. Don’t limit yourself while using these tremendous personalizing tools. Even order blank ribbons to quickly identify specific groups by a single color worn by each person.
Parties and summertime go hand-in-hand.

Coller Industries Incorporated has many wonderful customers. We work hard to make sure everyone gets quality name tags and personalized ribbons. Sometimes, we are able to take the time to especially recognize one of these wonderful customers by making a donation to their personal identification needs. We love donating time, products and ideas to these companies and organizations. This month we were able to provide a donation to The Durham-Orange Genealogical Society (D-OGS).
According to Holt Anderson, D-OGS Charter Member, D-OGS is “an active genealogical community dedicated to the research and preservation of family history of Durham and Orange counties in North Carolina. We provide research assistance and educational opportunities to our members and the public through outreach programs, monthly meetings, newsletters and forums. We meet once a month to hear speakers on topics about general research techniques, North Carolina maps, Indian Trading Paths, cemetery records, advances in technology, DNA results and so much more.”
The Durham-Orange Genealogical Society primarily focuses on family history research. They hold meetings on the first Wednesday of each month and these meetings are free and open to the public.
Badge ribbons were made with the “distinctive D-OGS logo,” said Anderson, “so that members who are attending large, and sometimes statewide or national, meetings can be identified (quickly).”
Anderson’s hope is that by wearing these name badge ribbons, “It will help to foster fellowship and promote the organization to prospective members.”
Name badges are an important part of any large meeting. They help to identify the wearer to everyone around them. By adding a badge ribbon, such as a Full Color Horizontal Badge Ribbon, one can be identified with more than just a name or a title. Badge ribbons can be used as awards, recognition for an achievement, or in a fun way with a silly title or message.
