We have been very blessed to have been afforded the opportunity to work with many Kappa Kappa Gamma Chapters on name tag projects. Most chapters tend to go with the key shaped name tag with the black lettering and detailing. They finish their sorority badges with a magnetic backing. This allows the wearer to attach the tag without punching a hole in their clothing. The key shaped name tag is available in a variety of colors and sizes, or you may choose a custom design especially for your chapter.
Kappa Kappa Gamma is a fantastic organization that any young woman would benefit from being a member. The organization was founded in 1870 at Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois. Kappa currently has a membership of over 240,00 women with 138 collegiate chapters. One of the unique things about Kappa Kappa Gamma is that it is a “fraternity” because it was founded prior to the word “sorority” came into use.
Kappa Kappa Gamma supports Reading is Fundamental as their national philanthropy. RIF promotes literacy in children and provides a much needed service in various communities. Kappa Kappa Gamma chapters are also involved with various charities and organizations in each chapters local community. They provide invaluable contributions of time and money for these worthwhile organizations and provide much needed support for the various activities.

Shipping of products can some times be very confusing. Most companies that you purchase things from quite frankly take too long to process and ship orders. A company that ships a package UPS ground can have that package in your hands in 6 working days or less, depending upon your location. So when a company tells you two weeks….well maybe they don’t work as quickly as we do at name-tags.net.
Here are some important things to remember about shipping. A working day is Monday thru Friday, so do not count the weekend as working days. Also anytime you have something shipped around a holiday, delays invariably always occur, so add a day or two. Also take into account whether you are shipping to a business or residence. Businesses always receive their packages prior to residential delivery. Remember that you need to be at home when the big brown truck arrives. Sometimes the driver will just leave a note and not your package if you are away from home. This may delay your order – and who needs that aggravation.
All domestically shipped UPS packages have a guaranteed delivery time. What this means is that UPS will refund your shipping charges if your package is late, that is all. So if you have an exact in-hand date for your package I would make sure it arrives a day prior to the day you actually need the items. Better to pay a bit more and be safe by being early, than to miss the boat because you were trying to save money. At name-tags.net we guarantee we will give your package to UPS and ship it to arrive on time – but that is all we can do. We are both at the mercy of UPS. Now they are very good and 99.9% of our packages arrive on time – but can you afford to take the risk or being late? People and companies are imperfect and mistakes happen, so keep that in mind when ordering your name tags.
The postal service is an option but their guarantees are few and very general. FedEx is awesome but face the same battles that UPS encounters. Our advice is to use UPS or FedEx. With those two companies you do have the option of Saturday delivery at an additional fee.
Most orders we produce are shipped our in 1 to 2 days via UPS so we are very quick on our end. We work with each customer to determine the time it will take to have the product delivered, then we chose the shipping method to insure the order arrives on time – every time.
So when you have a need for name tags and name badges give us a call we will help you every step of the way to insure on time delivery.
OK so the boss tells you “We need staff name tags – and we needed them yesterday!” What do you do? Where do you start? What type do you need? What do they cost? How fast can I receive them? Lots of questions and not many answers – so what do you do?
Well you could go to your print shop or big box office supply store…good luck there. No, those are fine places to go if you want to overpay, wait for weeks for your badges, and deal with someone who knows absolutely nothing about name tags. If you needed printing or office supplies you would you go to a person that makes name tags? So the first place is to find someone who makes professional name tags – like name-tags.net. The professionals at name-tags.net know all the questions that should be asked in order to make sure you receive the right product for your application.
Next, what style of name tag do you need? Style choice depends on the environment the name tag will be used. If the tags are for lawyers, executives, professional people the generally accepted name tag is the metal name tag or an executive name tag. This type tag features a more upscale appearance with the brushed metal finish. For the medical profession most clients tend to go with the engraved plastic name tags. These tags provide years of wear and feature a more muted appearance that blends nicely with scrubs or office attire. The name tags in color tend to be for general businesses or clubs and organizations. And for those companies with a high turnover in employees a reusable name tag is just the ticket.
The last item to concern yourself with is the backing. For most name tags the magnetic backing is the only choice. This allows the wearer to attach the badge without punching a hole in their garment. For instances where that is not a problem a standard pin backing is fine.
So call a name tag professional when you need name tags and badges, you will be glad you did.
In years past a custom shaped name tag was not really an option for most companies. There were high minimum orders, large set up fees, reorders were a nightmare and an abundance of restrictions that basically screamed – “We do not make custom name tags” Those days are over.
Custom name tags are readily affordable and are a real possibility for companies that need as few as 10 badges. In order for us to produce custom shaped name tags, the badges must be composed of a plastic material, that is either engraved or digitally imprinted with your graphics. The digital print is awesome because the cost is the same if you are printing one tag or a thousand. Choose as many colors as you want and design your heart away! The engraved tag is also another option however your are restricted to a two color process. The tag has a surface color and when you etch the graphic in the surface the letter/graphic color is reveled. The advantage of the engraved badges is that we offer a silver, gold or copper color that looks like real metal. The metal name tag look is appealing to quite a few people and tends to look a bit more upscale.
So you have your custom shaped name tag and now you need to put the finishing touches on your tag. What type of backing is the best you ask? A magnetic name tag is the only way to go. This allow you to attach your name tag without punching a hole in your clothing.
So when you are ready to step into the 21st century give us a call at name-tags.net and we will create a beautiful professionally designed custom shaped name tag that is sure to make you stand out from the crowd.
