The lead image is a good example of the end goal of making nametags: alphabetized and organized on the Welcome table. Make sure you have blank cards and extra holders for surprise drop-ins!
Here's a link to a google presentation you can copy, fill in with your own names, and add extra pages to as needed: https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1IzHM4OiROFkzF8ig0HLFttedGB33wQsNA8JbhWUwua4/edit
The layout was designed for:
- 3"x4" cards with dotted border to cut on
- The person's name is the biggest -- make sure you doublecheck spelling and accents!
- Boots logo
- A blank line __________________ for a set of preferred pronouns, example "she, her, hers"
- enough room at the top for special marking tape indicating that someone is on ConductCom
- extra blank space for:
- an optional "do not photograph" sticker
- tiny, adorable stickers
- printer paper
- a printer
- The template (linked above and here) a layout program (Google Slides? Microsoft Word?) where you can layout 3"x4" squares
- scissors to cut the 3"x4" squares out
- nametag holders -- often the most expensive part of nametags! Are there options to the plastic sleeve and elastic lanyard??
- tiny, adorable stickers (usually of plants, animals, landscapes, and people)
- purple tape for indicating ConductCom
- colorful dot stickers to indicate anything else of significance, like "do not photograph"
- markers for writing the names of surprise attendees, or anything else!
- layout the nametags (use the template)
- print them out, including a few extra blanks where people can write in their own name
- cut them out
- put them in the plastic sleeves
- alphabetize them
- pack them in a box to bring to Barnraising venue later that night or the next day
- once arrived, set up a Welcome table and lay them out
