    My husband is a photographer with IStockPhoto.com, and I am organizing a 3-day photoshoot for 25 professional photographers on a local CSA farm in the Snoqualmie Valley (Carnation, WA) August 13-15.

    The event is called "Chickenlypse" (long story, but all of these type events are called <something>lypse, because the very first of its kind was called an IStock-a-lypse.) The farm where we'll be staying/shooting is called Dog Mountain Farm and is primarily a poultry producer (eggs, and meat, chickens, ducks, turkeys, geese, etc.).

    Anyway, I need to make nametags (badges on lanyards), and I have searched the Net high and low for lanyards that are pre-printed with some kind of chicken pattern. I'm willing to make my own lanyards, but I'll need 5/8" woven or cotton ribbon or webbing by the yard.

    I thought perhaps you crafty types might be able to point me in the right direction. (A print with chickens and cameras would be a total home run, but I'd settle for just chickens. Another possibility would be farm animals, including chickens.) Thanks!

    What are lanyards?

    Lanyards are the "necklace" sort of things that go around your neck, and then a name badge is connected to the bottom of it (the kind of thing a coach would use to wear a whistle around their neck?)

    If you make some, I might like to buy one [​IMG]

    A lanyard is basically a long 'necklace' used to hold a key, ID card, etc.

    I saw that one...it's definitely a possibility, though I'm concerned the guys won't wear it...maybe a little too femanine? The price is a little higher than I planned to pay, but not bad.

    Here's one that would be perfect, except that it's almost a full 1" wide:

    Thanks for the tip.

    Quote:The ribbon that you posted the link to is decorative ribbon. I believe that is more like gift wrap ribbon in feel and may not be too comfortable to wear around the neck.
