Badgy, the wise choice to create professional quality visitor badges
The members of the French Junior Chamber of Commerce (JCEF) have agreed to share the benefits they received from using the Badgy200 during the preparation of their national convention.
The French Junior Chamber of Commerce (JCEF) has chosen instant printing with Badgy for its customized visitor badges
Most associations have events to organize at some point during the year. These can attract a greater or smaller number of people, depending on the nature and the size of the association. Whatever the type of event (festival, sporting event, convention, race, etc.) its success depends on:
- good organization
- an excellent reception
- clear identification of the participants and the organizers
The associations also have a specific image they would like to maintain and members/organizers whose time is divided between the association, their professional and personal life, and the desire to make their events a success.
With this in mind, the Badgy card printer is an office tool which provides associations with a real solution:
- To create professional quality badges on plastic cards
- To save time during the organization of events
- To avoid spending more than necessary
The challenge: identifying the convention participants at the lowest cost
The JCEF is an association of men and women aged 18 to 40 who collaborate to help develop society and individuals by setting up economic, social, and community projects.
The association is made up of 150 local groups (Local Junior Chambers of Commerce) and 23 regional groups (federations).
Each year it organizes a National Convention. The 2014 convention was held in Angers, France.
As the members who organize the event are all volunteers at JCEF alongside their regular jobs, their time is precious and so are the association’s coffers!
The solution: Badgy200 for printing their own PVC cards
After investigating various badge-printing solutions available on the market, JCEF event organizer Vanessa Obadia turned to the Badgy200, one simple box including:
- A printer that prints on plastic cards
- Software for creating badge templates
- Access to customizable templates
- An ink ribbon and blank cards
After installing the printer in one of the association members’ homes, the organizers were able to print 450 badges for pre-registered individuals.
On the day of the convention, the compact format of the printer meant that it could be easily transported to the event location for the instant printing of the customized badges for guests invited at the last minute!
Thanks to Badgy, we have been able to quickly hand personalized badges to each participants. Easy to use and efficient : we are very pleased with this card printing solution
