You Design Your Own Shmoooz’R
Telling us what you want on your Shmoooz’R is both easy and fast.
We convert this information to pictorial images which we place on a Shmoooz’R.
The result is a striking, 4’ X 6” or 3" x 5" pictorial collage (or DOUBLE-SIDED "Chat-It-Up" size) inserted into a vinyl holder and attached to a comfortable lanyard (custom printing available).
Two Sides, Really?
It’s kind of stupid not to use the back side of a nametag unless it’s somehow already glued, soldered or pinned to your shirt. So, we did. On the "Chat-It-Up" the second side displays more info. About you... another side to your personality if you will. Don’t forget to flip it over occasionally.
Images Stimulate The Best Conversations
Obviously, this is true. If you harbor any doubts about this proposition, read the June 30, 2013 New York Times article, "Disruptions: Social Media Images Form a New Language Online” (or download a PDF here). The article says that images deepen engagement and strengthen the conversational experience.
At What Events Is A Shmoooz’R Most Effective?
Weddings, festivals, bar mitzvahs, celebrations, graduations, receptions, potlucks, games, stags, conferences, mixers, meet-ups, cocktail parties, funerals, soirees, conventions, business meetings, block parties, confabs, garage conventions.
Well, you get the idea ...absolutely anywhere where you think you’ll bump into or be approached by strangers.
How Is Shmoooz’R Different From An Ordinary Name Tag?
A conventional name tag displays your name and usually one other useful piece of information about you like the name of your employer, your job title or occupation. But let’s be honest. Nobody wants to talk to you because they see your name on a nametag. At this stage of introductions, names are irrelevant. And few people really care that you’re the comptroller at Ajax Manufacturing Company in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. It’s irrelevant.
But, a Shmoooz’R, in addition to generic name and occupation information, gives the kind of personal information about you that makes other event guests want to learn more about you than just your name and what you do. It’s a fact: Sharing of personal (but non-invasive)information like what school you attended guarantees immediate and stronger bonds. Think about this for a second. How many times have you bumped into a stranger who’s wearing a sweat shirt from your alma mater, and that small tag of commonality launches both of you into non-stop conversation? It’s true of all of us. Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram understand this about human nature and make it a part of their social media DNA. So, our Shmoooz’R is in effect a wearable Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram all bundled into one.
Making conversations with people you don’t know -- and don’t know you -- has never been more fun or easier. You don’t have to struggle to make small talk. Your Shmoooz’R makes it for you. And makes it well.
What’s Wrong With Having Fun?
Let’s face it….it’s fun to see your name in lights. Well, if not in lights, at least in Big, Bold Print. Shmoooz’R rolls out the highlights of your life for everyone to see….and comment about. Yes, it’s scaling up your achievements in a modest, becoming manner. Think of Shmoooz’R being Your #1 Booster. That’s Fun.
Have you ever wondered how all of us love to wear customized clothing, like T-shirts, baseball caps and designer-labeled clothing that shout to the world what we think about things and what we like? Even our uniforms describe our skills, our education, and most likely our political beliefs. Think of the Wall Street attorney in his button down, three piece suit or the cop on the beat: Those are all uniforms and they say much about the individuals who wear them. And what I like most about these attempts to brand ourselves is that they’re all natural expressions of our personality and character. In other words, they have integrity because they’re not products of Madison Avenue or advertising hype.
Our clothing act as commercial billboards of our thoughts and ambitions, and that’s OK. In fact, it’s just another form of communicating. It’s good to have as many different methods and modes of communication as it takes to get our message through.
Is There A Choice In Nametags?
Not really. You can use the conventional “HELLO, my name is Joe Dokes” nametag available at every Walgreens or Office Depot in the country. Or you can wear something that values you as a unique person who has life stories he wants to share…and more miles to travel. YOU MAKE THE CHOICE.
