Best Badge Holders for Rainy Outdoor Events

No one really plans to have an event in the rain, but it happens. The fact of the matter is, if you plan on organizing an event outdoors, you might as well plan for the worst weather!

When it rains during an outdoor event, some materials can be salvaged. Others are just ruined! Although it may be impossible to waterproof the entire event, it is doable to at least protect the small things that matter, like identification (ID) badges.

There are several creative options one can use for protecting his or her ID badge, but the best way to do it is to use a vinyl badge holder.

Vinyl Badge Holders

Vinyl Badge Holders provides a professional and economical way to protect your ID badges. They are great for networking events as they can easily contain a business card to show off one's name and business. Vinyl badge holders not only prevents cardboard ID tags from fraying around the edges, but it also keeps them nice and dry. With the type of name badge where you print from a laser printer, there is no need to worry about the ink smearing either.

Types of Vinyl BadgeHolders Available
