Sherry O’Neill is the General Manager at The Cheesecake Factory Charitable Foundation. She said, “In addition to the 15th Annual Golf Tournament event to raise funds for City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Foundation works within The Cheesecake Factory’s inspiring and engaging culture to allow staff members the opportunity to give back to various parts of their community.”

The Foundation exists to fulfill its mission through enhancing surrounding communities’ well-being. This non-profit organization was created not only as a means to raise funds for worthy causes but also as a way to unite our caring and conscientious staff members in charitable causes.

O’Neill also said, “These continued donations help us facilitate an essential aspect of our event, identifying valued bidders. At the Foundation’s Annual Golf Tournament, members wear name badges. These leverage communication, allow for ease of execution, and ultimately create an amiable atmosphere. This encourages members to return each year and continue to donate to City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center.”

“On the day of the golf tournament, every volunteer, employee, and attendee will have their own name badge,” said O’Neill. “The donation, which was kindly offered to us, helps to offset the cost of ordering necessary materials.”

How To: Networking in 3 Easy Steps

First things first, what is networking?

Networking is a supportive system of sharing information and services among individuals and groups having a common interest.

networking only works when you use your name tags correctly with logos titles and namesAnd, whether you are wearing a name tag for an event or work every day, chances are you don’t realize the impact which you are making. In social settings, name tags can level the playing field. They are also free advertising for your company. And, they inspire people to be more approachable.

Step One: Always wear your name tag! It’s the key to great networking!

A name tag reminds you to be open and honest. You can’t hide behind it. And, it gets you to network, to put yourself out there, and to make new friends. It gives you the opportunity to brand yourself, your image, and your company, with honesty and trustworthiness.

Your name tag is your best friend for several reasons. A person’s name is the first thing that most people forget upon the first meeting. Without the aid of a name tag, people are less likely to approach if they don’t know or have forgotten your name.

Consider all of the commitment you have access to when wearing a name tag. Networking isn’t easy, but when you are willing to put yourself out there, others around you are apt to feel more at ease and will connect better and more frequently.

Step Two: The most important thing is to get your brand noticed.

networking only works when you use your name tags correctly with logos titles and namesYour name tag reflects who you are and humanizes you to others. Most people have a tendency to judge on first impressions, especially when everyone in the room is a stranger. But, if you have a way to make yourself stand out, your brand will become recognizable. And, it helps to make others more at ease around you.

If name tags are provided at an event, use them. Don’t be a name tag snob. They are there to make greeting others easier. They reduce possible awkward moments and help you remember names gracefully.

Step Three: Talk to other and, as always, wear your name tag!

It will help you be fearless. Wearing a name tag in a room full of strangers is an invite for people to talk to you, and for you to talk to people. You don’t need someone to introduce you, so be fearless and take networking into your hands.

Ordering A Predefined Stock Template

Our website has changed! We have now made it easier to order a predefined stock template name tag.

ordering a predefined stock template name tag or name badge with metal and plastic materialsSelect a template and material type from one of our available options. Each option has been set up with predefined text lines and a name tag size. No proof is required for these name tags, and there is no required set-up fee. Provide your name and title list when placing your order for possible next day shipping. Keep in mind that quantity, material and other options selected on the order page will affect the pricing and production time.

Stock templates are available as both metal and plastic name tags. All name tags ordered on these pages will only have text. (If you want to add a logo, they are still available on the other order pages.)

All text is laser engraved into the top layer or core of the plastic to reveal the second color to create a two color plastic name tag. Solid colors have a matte finish, metallic colors have either a brushed or smooth finish, and wood grains have a slight gloss finish.

Laser engraving creates a two color name tag. Each colored metal has a lacquer finish or a reflective mirror-like finish. The engraved color will be the silver or bronze of the underlying metal. On gold and silver tags the laser oxidizes to a dark gray or black.

All of these predefined templates have the option of adding at least a first name. As you browse these templates, notice that each option has different features. Such as Styles A and B only have one line for a first name, while styles J and M both have three lines for names, titles and company name.

Each template option comes in plastic or metal and has the same color choices! Choose from 29 plastic color combinations and 18 metal colors. Plastic options come in a combination as the engraving process requires that one color will show through the other. Metal is a bit different as it just reveals the underlying color of the metal instead of a two layer plastic.

Whatever your choice, these new stock template pages are easy-to-use and will give you a professional looking name tag. And, they’re sure to meet any need!
