I knew we needed name tags for the Asheville Adventure Meetup, but hated the idea of boring stick on ones.  Plus I wanted to include everyone's avatar, for folks to help put a name (or screen name) with a face.  I saw that several of the sets of name tag holders on Amazon came with lanyards.  Boring black string lanyards that no one would ever use again.  No thanks!  So I made my own!  There are 31 in the picture, but I want to say one more I made is missing...  Most are beaded, but there are also some braided leather, some faux leather cording, and some cotton corded ones, for those who didn't want a lot of bling.  My hope is that those who wear lanyards at work can get some more use out of them, and those who don't can repurpose them by simply removing the giant clip that attaches to the name tag, and wear them as long necklaces, or as wrap bracelets. 

Adventurers, I didn't get individual pictures of them, so feel free to post close ups of yours!

Here is mine!


I love mine, and I kept admiring the ones others chose as well. I have been needing a lanyard for work, and this doubles as jewelry so I'm pretty happy about that.

I was expecting, maybe, a "Hello my name is __" sticker. Instead Jennie started us off with THIS (nametags with user name, real name, and avatar was brilliant), and the goods kept coming!

Seeking image or rubberstamp of a bunch of sardines crammed together facing the same way (much like people in a crowd. I have a Monty Python style art project in mind)

This is brilliant! Great way to personalize things and make them lovely, but adding both using name and avatar is awesome for this kind of thing. Smiley
