(badge inserts vs. lanyards)

- Remember, badges do not know they are supposed to point in one specific direction. It is not uncommon for a badge to get reversed. The basic idea of the lanyards is to identify a fellow DISer from a distance ... something which would enable you to introduce yourself if you do not know the other DISer (or, cannot see their nametag). If you skip the lanyard and use a badge insert, I'm guessing people would not notice the badge ... especially if it gets reversed.

#######
The lanyard spacing has various character limitations by company, screen print versus woven, etc. Woven is probably out of question (price and minimum quantity was much higher) at least from the ones I have researched.

We used lanyard and badge insert before. The badge insert was printed front/back, but I also had that thought then because of it flipping around since several ended up using their own lanyards (and they can just flip around anyway from body movement). Easy enough to print two sheets per person, slip KTTW card between the two sheets so no matter which way the badge is facing it is a clear view. Plus if it is printed in a color that is not a KTTW color, such as light blue background (?), then also helpful to view. I'd always be looking at the badge walking past someone in the hall to figure out which DIS member they were. So neat meeting them all! We also found several people resorting to using their own lanyards last time instead of the group lanyard. I think I may put a poll out there again regarding lanyards as those who responded previously may not be onboard still since PIF has passed. Kinda like money - many may have said they'd contribute to the lanyard team, but may have also cancelled the cruise at this point, so seeing where we stand with a lanyard team in donating funds as a team will be helpful as I know we had several reply they want a lanyard but are not willing to contribute.

Confession: I absolutely LOVE SM; can't wait to sign the boys up. But I won't sign up to organize it, because I don't want to pick who we have (or who is giving to them) and because right now I suck at anything above and beyond getting through the day.

A big THANK YOU to those who have volunteered already!

Should we make a decision on the shorts within the next few weeks or so if Valbob doesn't check in? If you remember, they were having trouble getting RT airfare home at one point.....

Secret Mickey....


I have participated in this before on the EBTA and would love to do it again, so it would be nice if somebody stepped up to organize this.
i would be willing to volunteer but i want to participate also, is that possible??

I could just throw all the names in a hat and then draw.

But can you organize SM while participating also????

Not necessarily an Organizer, but we should get someone set up to answer questions/whatever. I've had questions via the website about it and since I no longer have a toddler, I'd not the best to answer those questions. We seem to have quite a few first time cruisers with probably simple questions but I've no experience with the event or how it goes.

Very easy thing to volunteer for then?

I don't see why not, you would just know your secret mickey unless you have someone who could help and hide it from you somehow!!

She is handling the button down shirts completely, and that design link I posted was the last I recall seeing. Maybe she'll share if that's still the current design.

We wear so many tshirts in our family, plus like a matching shirt for embarkation, so that's why I ordered the $6 tshirts from VistaPrint. Couldn't beat that deal Our shirts from WBTA 2011 are still in tact and good after dozens of of washes.
