New AnimeMusicVideos.org Badge

Postby Phade » Tue Sep 24, 2002 10:13 pm

Hey All,

Finally, there is a new badge available on the member main page for all those who would like to wear something at cons and such. It should fit into one of those standard plastic "Hello, my name is..." badge holders. Otherwise, you can laminate it.

Have fun!! ^_^

For anyone curious what it looks like, here's a low-res GIF:

Except that badge holders normally go the other way...landscape....at least the three that i have do. I guess i just use misty's badge from the last time as it fits in my badgeholder that i got.

Hey mckeed,

The thing is that if people don't use the same badge, nobody will recognize it right away. If people use the same design, you will be able to instantly recognize that they are an org member without trying to read what the badge says.

This one will fit in badge holders. Just rotate the badge holder so that it is landscape as well. If the badge falls out, use some tape to hold it in.

Do you mean "rotate the badge holder so that it's landscape?" :)

I tend to see vertically-oriented badges for cons I've gone to, AXNY is the only con I recall that had a horizontal badge.

G'ah. PORTRAIT. Not landscape. PORTRAIT.

yeah...thats good and all...except i can't laminate mine....and all 3 of my badgholders don't have a mount point(clip) on the vertical side, only the horizontal one....so then ppl will look at it....sideways which will be even more confusing to read the handle but then the title would actaully be readable....if someone was walking by and it was swinging....i would never know what the hell it was. Also mine has an openting on the top which would then be the side of the badge.....plus i'm way too drunk at this point to try to make that thing work correctly.....i need to pack for AWA.....later......maybe there should be a contest helg again...last one was short notice and not many ppl submitted one anyway....maybe we should have a variation that is landscape for us without access to lamination thingys.

just print it out, fold it up and cover it with tape.

That's laminated enough for me :)

Then you can fly it to Miami, purchase it's own condo where it can live in retirement all happy and content away from you.

How to make your own badges

You will need the following items:

* 1 safety pin, preferably large (your Mom should have one lying around somewhere. If not, ask a friend or else a package of them is really really cheap at Wal-Mart)
* 1 chunk of stiff cardboard (the back side of a pad of paper works great)
* Some wide clear packaging tape (you should have some lying around, again, if not, ask a friend or it’s really cheap a the store)
* 1 printed copy of the badge
* 1 pair of scissors

Print the badge and cut out as needed. Cut out the stiff cardboard to the same size as the badge. Poke the dull end of the safety pin through the cardboard so that the pin can stick in to something else (like your shirt) and close with the cardboard on the outside (this may take some creative hole punching with the assistance of the scissors). Place the printed logo over the non-pointy side of the cardboard/pin contraption. Tape the logo to the cardboard with one big piece of tape that covers the whole logo and overlaps all edges some, carefully folding the tape over to the back of the cardboad so that it is one big piece (be sure not to cover the pointy part of the pin). Wear pin and have fun!! ^_^

Can I ask who the lucky winning badge designer was? :) Might as well give them some recognition

I resent the insinuation that everyone here still lives with their parents! The figure is closer to 98 percent, not 100! And packaging tape! La dee freakin' da! Why don't we just toss in some caviar and Bordeaux and a couple Rolls-Royces while we're at it?! We don't all live in the "pimpin' rich" income bracket, where people can afford such luxuries as electricity and phones and real food and moving out of our Moms' basements! Off the cloud, into the crowd, man!
I'm out...
