Already loving BadgeNinja!
Thanks for your useful replies everybody! I'm just about to embark on my research stage of operation 'Get Better At Name Badges'. Wish me luck!
it doesn't help but it's nice to see someone else shares my pain haha!
This was also a huge problem for me this year! Had two conferences for 500 people running along side each other and we ended up staring one 20 minutes late due to name badge finding problems with registration, it was a real issue and caused a lot of stress for me to get things caught up during the day so they were running along side each other time wise. I have been looking for new ideas with name badges since February and think I am going to try the print on demand route, its more costly, but looks more professional and with an external company coming in to do it, takes the pressure of us as event managers. Fingers crossed!
How funny, I literally just sent an email to a company asking how much it would be for them to do it for me. Throw some money at the problem I say!
Sounds like a plan!
Just placed an order with these guys for my conference in September. Thanks for the recommendation
Sorry to have missed your question back in June!
Really pleased to hear that you've used Nicholas Hunter. They're really good and very reasonable, aren't they?
Hope the event with your shiny new badges goes well
