These templates offer some ideas for Chapters and SIGs to create their own public relations
collateral. If your Chapter or SIG
would like to share what you have done, please contact the webmaster and we will add them to the website as additional examples.
Order custom badge ribbons to hand out at conventions to promote your Chapter
or SIG. You may have places locally who can make them, or you can find online stores where
you can design and order them.
Chaz Baden is one source for badge ribbons. His website includes
an excellent FAQ on designing and ordering badge ribbons. He lists his prices and options, and also provides links to other vendors who sell badge ribbons.
Here are some examples of badge ribbons used by the ICG and Chapters.
ICG Board Member Badge Ribbon
Identify your Chapter Board member or a member of your chapter or SIG who is an ICG officer at local and regional cons by handing out this "ICG Board Member" badge ribbon.
This badge ribbon is already set up and available to order from from Chaz Badden.
Chapter/SIG Badge Ribbon
Promote your Chapter/SIG at local and regional cons by handing out badge ribbons.
You can also make badge ribbons for chapter officers, or to promote special programs or activities that your Chapter or SIG is involved with.
The ribbons at left are handed out at cons by (top) the Silicon Web Costumers' Guild "Web Diva," (center) the editor of the Silicon Web Costumers' Guild Virtual Costumer magazine; (bottom) members of the Time Travelers' Costume Guild to promote their chapters. Both SiW ribbons include the chapter logo.
Badge ribbons can be ordered from a number of local and online sources. Some vendors
can include a graphic with the letters.
