Entertainers Tip 6
October 24, 2002 mbd2.com update notice – Halloween Pictures
It occurred to me the other day that as a entertaining, I should have multiple name badges, besides the normal two I carry. The first name badge is used for the restaurant entertaining saying “Magical Balloon-dude Dale – Suggested tip $2,846,352.35”. I’ve never received this tip, but the customer gets a good laugh at the suggestion; and the second badge is Magical Balloon-dude Dale. This is used when I’m performing private parties.
But why not have one for every season? It occurred to me this year I should have a name badge that is decorated for each season. Halloween maybe an orange name badge with a pumpkin. I’ve seen companies that create name badges that have actual graphics on the background like you would see at a chain restaurant. Why not create one for every holiday; after all, we spend money on holiday accessories. Why not name badges?
Well I let you know how this turns out; I’m in the process of finding a name badge companies to make my badges.
Things to think about when making your name badge.
- Simple text – you want people to be able to read your name.
- Keep it simple – don’t get to jazzy.
- Website address – Become a walking billboard for you website.
- Get badges that have magnetic backing – this will prevent you from making holes in your clothes.
- Get backups of your everyday name badges – badges can easily get misplaced. Have a backup when you need it!6) Buy and extra magnetic back – backings are easily misplaced.

I know this was written quite a while ago, but did you ever have any luck with finding a badge company that could comply to your requests? If so, how did customers respond to the “holiday badges”?
No, I wasn’t able to find a source at that time. I just had a new badge made at OfficeMax and they now do color images on a badge and the cost is really affordable.
