This is our event tip which is our web tip of the week :
“When creating name tags for your participants, use a font size that can be seen easily by others and ensure that the name is not covered up (unless on purpose) when the tag is worn.”
As much as this is common sense, we have seen this mistake being made at events. There was one event that we attended which had name tags with font size so small that even when you squint at it, you cannot see the name properly. When the name tag was worn, it was unfortunately hung at the region of the chest area, which made the situation even more awkward when you have to squint at the name tag. Ladies might think you are staring at their chest area.
With regards to the name being covered up when the name tag is worn, there were times when we saw name tags with the name printed too low or too high up on the paper that when it is inserted into the plastic cover which comes with the lanyard, it was mainly covered up. There are machines and programs which prints out names of guests or participants of events in bulks which makes it easier for the event organisers instead of the conventional way of writing out name tags. It is essential to ensure that the alignment of the names are correct so that the names are not printed too high up or too low.
We hope you find this tip useful.
