C5Fest Name Badges.... for 2012 in Indy
 
Last C5 Fest I missed meeting a lot of forum friends, due to simply not knowing who the heck they were. The hand written name tags were pretty much useless, especially when the username wasn't on there.

Would be nice if we had legible pre-printed cards with Name and Username..:thumbsup:

Anyone have any ideas of how we can make this happen?

Mindz 10-08-2010 02:05 AM

My idea is something like this:

.....Hello My name is
(Screen name)
.........real name

Wonder how hard/expensive it would be for camaro5, or anyone, to make camaro5 lanyards. Did a quick search and saw a site where u can create custom ones for as little as 19cents. Maybe make it apart of the store for people to buy in advanced, and sell them at the fest. And maybe someone make a template online for people to fill out and print for their names.

trudawg660 10-08-2010 05:01 AM

the mods can take all the screen names from the driver & spectator list and have them pre-printed and we can just pick them up from the booth. everybody will just have to help out with the payment

Should be included in the "registration" fee. Available when you pick up your registration / member packet.

We'll have those....????? right????

Along with screen name and real name maybe a pic of your car as the background. You could provide a digi-pic when you register online for the festival.

I'm sure we have a member that works at kinkos or owns a printing company... hell, I have a relative that may be able to provide a quote for that...

I have a cheap source for printing if someone can come up with what they want on the badges. It will also be cheaper if they all look the same. Maybe after the CFII logo is worked out we can come up with something.

I take it you have not seen this...lol

They are not in the store yet, but of the 100 we had made, we are down to about 40 or so in a few weeks. Once these sell out, we are going to buy more. Included are the badge holders.

We'd love to do registration cards and were working on it last year. Time ran out and we were not able to get them done. We'll look into it again this year.

If you don't want them to cost an arm and a leg, then each car won't be personalized with a picture of their car. On top of that, not everyone going will have a car. what happens with missing pictures, bad files, blurry pictures, uploaded the wrong ones...who is going to create the upload site and maintain it?

While not a bad idea, but without more thought and a whole lot of work, it won't come together.

Again, we had hard plastic badges nearly done for last year. We'll see about getting them this year.

Exactly. That is what our admin is working on now. Let us get this finished up and we'll work on some badges.

PoorMansCamaro 10-08-2010 12:05 PM

^lol, nope! didn't see that! i did check the store though. :D

Once it's in the store, i'll order one. ;)

yeah, we had name tags for everyone, had them printed and ready to go.

unfortunately, we had to rearrange the Mod tent location so not everyone got one (same thing with the coins). The nametags were set up to have your username listed. and they were provided thanks to a "donation" of a prominent forum member.


we discussed using lanyards as a way to hold the ID's as well.


We've got some plans in work. We're still a long way out. :thumbsup:

C4 10-08-2010 03:09 PM

geminidreams 10-08-2010 03:36 PM

I would be willing to help give name tags out at the event if need be.

another thing to keep in mind with lanyards is the fact that the badge will be free to spin around, so your name wont always be visible.

PoorMansCamaro 10-08-2010 05:07 PM

Double sided? you can easily make the badges with two sets of names, one upside-down and fold it in half, or side-by-side and fold. which ever's easiest. just a thought.

Last years got messed up a bit like Spike said, by the rearangement at the last minute.

I do think this is important though. As I did last year. I met a ton of people there and for a while afterward there was a few times when I had an exchange that would go something like this......


Member: "Wasn't the fest a blast?"

PQ: "Ya, sorry I missed you. We gotta make sure we meet next time"

Member: "Uh......... dude.......... I bought you a beer"
