Make the most of your badging budget without compromising on quality

We all have budgets to follow and demands on funds from all areas of the event often means there isn’t much left of the budget for badging. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on the quality. See below three top tips to make your badging budget stretch that little bit further.

The first top tip is to think about which badge type you are going to use. For example, opting for a badge that doesn’t require a plastic wallet, such as our IDhesive badges, are very cost effective. Not only will you have a professional looking and durable badge, they’re also more eco friendly and will save you time stuffing inserts into wallets.

The second tip is very simple, don’t leave your badging to the last minute, we can’t stress this enough! Although great event badges can still be achieved with an extremely tight deadline, you won’t have nearly as many available options and the costs will likely be more expensive the closer you leave it to your event.

The third and last tip is to think about whether it would be more cost effective for you to invest in badging software or continue to outsource your badging. Our popular Conference Card Creator and ComPic badging software will enable you to create high quality badges in house, both pre-event and onsite. The software is extremely useful for events large or small and will quickly pay for itself, especially if you organise multiple events throughout the year.

Of course the other option is to just buy the cheapest thing on the market, but do you really want to take the risk of being let down last minute by a supplier or ending up with shabby looking badges?
