I am getting ready for my 40th year high school class reunion. Does anyone have any ideas for different or unique name tags?

We used copies of senior pictures from the yearbook on our nametags. Spouses/partners got a nametag of that photo of the the classmate reading " I'm with...." and then their name. It worked great !
How about putting the name on the name tag and underneath "ASK ME ABOUT....." and an event or occasion in that persons life following high school.
"Ask me about.....THE JOB IN THE SHOE SHOP"
It could be a good way to get people talking and rekindle old friendships. (Hope it goes OK!!)
One other idea - we put the HS photo on both the classmate and their spouse's nametag - that way, people knew who was with who. We put the classmates photos on the right side of the nametag and spouses on the left side. That way, you don't spend time trying to figure out who a spouse is in pictures from the event!
We also only put the first name (in big print) beside the photo. That let us use bigger type than if we'd put the full name. We included the full name in smaller type below (and the classmate's name for spouses). That also aided in identifying people from photos.
For our 25th reunion nametags - instead of a photo of the graduate, I put a yearbook photo of one of our teachers on each, especially the ones who were notably memorable - to spark conversation and recall old times in their class.

We got a old Student body card made up one with any computer picked through old yearbook pictures from any year we were in school 1965-1967 they look really awesome we put them in a name tag holder this could be a reunion favor.
Our high school reunion is coming up soon. Any suggestions for any companies that could make individual name tags for us with our pictures on them?
Staples or a similar store could do it.
We did our own. Our class website has pictures uploaded to it and there was a feature where we could print our high school photos with the names right from our website.
If you don't have a class website with this feature, you can scan the photos to PDF and use the snip tool that comes with most computers and make you own using an Avery template. (Avery boxed labels).
The best size is 4" x 2.5". When you buy the box, they usually have a test sheet in there so you can make sure to put them in the printer the right way.
It is super easy and cheap to do them this way. I think we did ours for under $20.
Happy reunion!! I have a very big one coming up in August!! Can't wait!
