As the final part of our series on how to use church name tags, here is a list of 8 tips for using church name tags:
- Use felt tip pens with a medium point so that people must write large–large enough so that other people can actually read their names. (If they use regular writing pens, people write so small that you must get indecently close to read their names!)
- Dry-Erase pens have less odor than permanent markers.
- Some users report that stick-on nametag labels from name brands are a somewhat better for this purpose than chain store brands, but the latter are less expensive.
- Some organize preprinted nametags by small group to help facilitate member care by small group leaders.
- If you have multiple points of entry, have an area at each entrance where people can pickup and return their name tag.
- One church color codes their name tags by number of years being a member. I personally think that’s a bad idea.
- Do not make visitors stick out as the only ones with name tags. This should be an most-everybody level of involvement (some will never wear one).
- Don’t use the pre-printed “hello my name is” or “Visitor” nametags. Use the opportunity for church branding.
Let me ask you this?
I’d like to make at least a list of 10 – what would you add to this list?
