If you’re in the Austin, Texas area this week for one of the largest and most well-known music, film, and interactive festivals (yes, of course we mean SXSW), then be sure to be on the look out around town for one of these eye-catching yellow “Staff” lanyards. Our neighbors to the north, the SXSW crew, order these bright custom printed lanyards each year for all their staff working during the festival. We’re definitely proud to be a part of such a prestigious event every year!
We’re sure you’ve all heard of the Chicago Bulls, right? Well LoneStar is proud to announce that we’re the supplier of name badges for the one and only Chicago Bulls basketball team!
Ordering both our BLP Laser Engraved Badges and our BMP Full Color Digital Badges, the Bulls incorporate LoneStar into their every game. Name badges are a great way to unite a sport team off the court at events and ceremonies or banquets, as well as for officials and announcers during the game and the more executive administrators behind the scenes. Sport teams of all kinds can definitely benefit from using name badges just like the professional styles that the Bulls order.
These types of badges can be found on…you guessed it…LoneStar Badge and Sign‘s website! So if you’re interested in badges for your team, coaches, mascots, or officials, feel free to contact us at any time and we’ll point you in the right direction.

It’s interesting to find out a little bit about where some of the ID products produced at LoneStar end up. We’re beginning to research the history of our clients to gain some insight into all the different types of companies that order from us. One of our customers that caught our attention is Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate located in Lexington, Kentucky.
The staff and approximately 80 volunteers at the Estate order name badges from LoneStar with a very detailed and beautiful image. The image on the badge made us curious to learn more about this historic location shown and to find out a little information about Henry Clay, the original occupant of this Estate. Upon doing some research on the Henry Clay Estate and talking to our contact there, we’ve learned some very interesting and incredible facts about Mr. Henry Clay and his gorgeous National Historic Landmark that was built in the early 1800s.
The Henry Clay Estate is now run by a private non-profit organization, the Henry Clay Memorial Foundation, created by one of Mr. Clay’s descendants. In addition to being a National Historic Landmark, the Estate is now also a museum and educational center that honors the incredible life of Henry Clay.
During the early 1800s, Henry Clay was a very influential figure to our nation and our government. He “made the position of Speaker of the House of Representatives the important role it is today, was one of the greatest Senators in the history of that body, served a term as Secretary of State, ran for President three times, and helped to start and end this country’s first war (the War of 1812).” He accomplished so much and we are definitely honored to have our name badges being used by such wonderful people who volunteer at the Estate of such an incredible and fascinating representative of our nation.
For more information on the very interesting Henry Clay or his beautiful historic Estate, you can visit the Ashland website or even plan a trip to visit it the next time you’re in the Lexington, Kentucky area. In addition, you can order full color BMP name badges just like those used at Ashland, visit our website.
