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.

custom badge ribbons to wear on name tags and badge holders

Badge Ribbons are so much more than just a piece of satin ribbon used as a designation for an usher or sponsor. Yes, titles are important, but these ribbons are so much more useful. Don’t settle for only using titles; make custom ribbons with nearly any text and graphics. From full-color to imprinted text, badge ribbons are guaranteed to make your life easier, especially when it comes to events.

Here are four ways to use badge ribbons at your next event.

1) Stock and Custom Titles

While a name tag identifies the person, adding a little flair will make them stand out. Custom imprinted ribbons are designed to hang from the back of a name tag or name badge. Simply attach a ribbon to the name tag or badge to add a descriptive title or honor for the attendee.

Choose from an abundance of stock titles or create a new one. Identify sponsors, presenters or speakers with different colored ribbons. These ribbons can also be used to differentiate guests and organizations from staff or volunteers. If there are prominent members or VIPs at the event, set them apart with a ribbon that reflects their importance or position.

2) Advertisements and Promotional Materials

Leave them at grocery stores, libraries and even hand them out in places near your chosen venue. The masses are sure to get excited to come to your event with such a color advertisement.

Not only do badge ribbons help as a valuable networking tool, but they are perfect for promotions. Customize each ribbon with your logo, add any sales items or text informing of the promotion. Then, place them all around your business or store. Make sure to hand them out before the sale or promotion starts to get the word out properly. Then, watch the masses flock to your business!

3) Inspirational Quotes and Sayings

Ribbons can be customized to express any desired effect. So, add uplifting imprinted text to any color of ribbon you want. These can be added to name tags to help those around your event feel more welcome and invited. And, don’t just let your employees or staff wear them. Give them to attendees to wear as well.

And, while uplifting is always nice, don’t forget to make your guests smile. Add silly titles or statements to make attendees laugh and get more involved in your event. These sayings can even be directions to a game they can play while at your event. Get creative in your text and graphics with these fun event tools.

4) Keepsakes and Awards
