Donations, Donors and CYC

Donations are an excellent way of saying thank you on such a special day!

Coller Industries might just be your go-to specialist for all personal identification needs, but do you know how much we care about all of our customers? Part of that caring means that we give back. Not only to our local community but to all of our customers. We do this by giving donations of our goods to those in need. And we are happy to announce that we’re at it again!

California Youth Connection (CYC) is a youth-led organization that develops leaders who empower each other and their communities to transform the foster care system through legislative and policy change.

 

What is DAC?

The Day at the Capitol (DAC) Conference is an advocacy and empowerment conference for CYC chapters held annually in Sacramento. For three days Members and Supporters come together to participate in our signature DAC Conference. The Conference Planning Team Design and Attendee Experience Teams developed the 2017 DAC emblem-logo, slogan, theme and activities.

Jude Parker Koski, MBA, Conference & Training Coordinator, exclaimed, “Together this year, we are A Quasar of Voices: Unite With Our Force to advocate for Foster Parent Training and Support! I always enjoy working with and supporting the Conference Planning Team, and this time was no exception. It was an extraordinarily creative process and rich experience.”

Use these lanyards at meetings, conventions, conferences and other events. Sewn Lanyards are perfect to get your name out there with professional branding.

“Thank you so much for your generosity to help make the 2017 Day at the Capitol wildly successful- from offering deep discounts to donating time, services and materials!” said Koski of the donors and sponsors.

We are grateful for organizations such as the California Youth Connection. We sincerely hope that all of our donations are something that helps our customers in their efforts in their communities.

Improving Business In 4 Easy Steps

Here are a few quick and easy ways to help you improve your business with ONE tool!

Being able to recognize someone instantly is a huge benefit to a business these days. It will also contribute to improving your business contacts and employee relationships. Following is a quick list of four ways to improve your overall business by introducing name tags into your daily life.

First, it gives your employee a name!

improving your business with one quick tool name tagsSometimes you might run into an old friend or acquaintance while you are out shopping or at a business function. But, most of the time, you won’t know too many people. All companies can benefit from their employees using name tags. Provide employees, volunteers or event-goers with a name tag or name badge for easy identification.

With each person displaying their name on a name tag, customers and attendees will quickly identify the people they need to ask for help. And when that happens, the employee’s confidence and comfort level increases. All in all, wearing a name tag encourages people to be more mindful of their surroundings.

Second, they provide security!

improving your business with one quick tool name tagsBy giving employees name tags, you are providing security for your office or store. And, who doesn’t want a secure business? With a simple branding logo, employees are easily identified by customers and other employees. No one will ever have to guess at who their coworkers are again.

Another great tool for security is our photo ID badges. By adding a picture, a name and a logo, the wearer is sure to get noticed; and for all the right reasons!

Third, name badges help to hold employees accountable.

improving your business with one quick tool name tagsThis simple tool, similar to a uniform, is the perfect way to remind an employee of where they are. It gives them a sense of direction and purpose. And, it makes it easy for you to follow or spot them in a crowd of customers or event attendees. It is another way to ensure your employees are representing you and your business in the exact way you need to be represented.

Fourth, help yourself in rewarding/disciplining your employees.

When issues arise at your office, store or restaurant and you find a customer needs to speak with management, it becomes easier to identify the employee that needs to be pulled aside. Whether that is for a job well done or a little bit of coaching, a name tag helps the customer know who to report if or when it becomes necessary.

Names are what it’s all about these days in business. Do your customers know your’s and your employee’s names? Help them out with a name tag today at www.nametag.com!

How To Keep Up with Industry Trends

New trends are always popping up in odd places, and even name tags are no exception!

Like most things these days, name tags have evolved over the past few years. They are more than just boring names attached to a cashier’s apron or a salesman’s jacket. Businesses and other corporations are finding more ways to make sure that their employees enjoy wearing their name tags.

From new printing methods to custom shapes, trends in the personal identification industry have expanded with the needs prodding them forward.

With these trends comes various questions such as:

  • Will name tags help promote better internal employee relationships?
  • Can they encourage stronger teamwork in offices and retail locations?
  • Are name tags able to help an employee feel more like an individual?

These questions are all answered with a single word: YES!

While each name tag still has the basic information on it, such as an employee’s name and title, personalize each with bright and vivid colors, different types of printing or engraving, and even creative logos and graphics!

How To Keep Up with Industry Trends using personal identification and name tags

One idea that was recently discussed was including personality identifiers on a name tag.

Recently several companies (have been) identifying employee’s personalities on their name tag. There are many personality tests that people use today. While all are a bit different, all shed light on employee’s social patterns, group dynamics and motivating factors. By placing the personality color code on the name tag, employees are able to interact with each other more easily and are able to communicate better. (These) companies (that) are embracing this (are) finding success (in this endeavor).

Name Tag Definitions: Part 5

These definitions will provide the difference between stock items and custom items. And what you need to know about ordering each kind.

Most of our name tags come with two options. Custom and Stock. Sometimes, trying to figure out what you need can be a struggle.

definitions of name tags name badges and other personal identificationStock Products

First things first, let’s cover what “stock” means. “Stock” refers to an item that is already made or has distinct parts that do not require any added printing or engraving. These items will ship immediately for your use. Stock items are available as Mighty Badges, Speedy Badges and any other reusable products. These “stock” items are ideal for high-turnover companies such as retail stores or call centers. They are also perfect for volunteers. Use each of these products over and over as they have interchangeable pieces.

Pre-Defined Productsdefinitions of name tags name badges and other personal identification

This term may be a bit confusing to some our customers. These “pre-defined” items consist of name tags or name plates that follow a specific, already established design. We call them “Classic Name Tags” and “Classic Name Plates.” And, they are custom in nature. Customize them by selecting the size, the number of lines, a material color and a fastener or holder. We offer several professional name tag and name plate templates to personalize for your needs. These templates do not allow the addition of a logo.

Custom Productsdefinitions of name tags name badges and other personal identification

“Custom” items are made specifically for one customer as per their order. Order all of our name tags and name plates as custom products. This means that you can design your product, whether it be a name tag or name plate, to meet your needs. Design them with names, titles and logos or sometimes full color graphics.

Here at Name Tag, Inc., we pride ourselves on having exact products for which our customers are looking. And, as part of this definitions series, we want to make sure that you understand what you’re getting. Having stock items means that you, as our loyal customers, get what you need and quickly. And by ordering those custom items, it means that you get exactly what you need, no matter what. If we don’t seem to have what you’re looking for, please give us a call, and we’ll find something that works!
