You shouldn't have to. It should have your real name, and whatever "badge name" you chose to have on it on it already.

Got mine today too! :) #140

If there was no badge name on the one mailed to you, then our registration software didn't have one inputted into it. If you want to put something on there, I don't think it would be a problem, just be forewarned, if it's something offensive or obscene, a reg staffer will probably have to make a new one at the pre-reg table, and that would make them sad :(

I got mine not too long ago. ^^ It's number 377.

Just a quick question though, this year, is Kumoricon not making different badges for minors and adults?

Because my sister's nineteen, so she has an adult badge and I'm 15 and my younger sis is 12(though she'll be 13 by K-con) and all of them are the same colour?

It seems you and your sister got some of the misprints sent to you by mistake.

There was a few of the child and minor badges that were printed as blue adult badges when they should've been red and yellow but most were pulled and reprinted so I'm surprised that a few still got sent.  :-\

Email us at registration@kumoricon.org with the first and last names of those who got incorrect badges and what the issue is and we will get this sorted out for you so we can send you the correct badges.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Email us at registration@kumoricon.org with your first and last name and I can check if there is any issues that may have kept us from sending your badge.

We are still trying to get through all of our back orders but we are planing to get caught up at our next reg meeting sometime near the end of the month.

You get a plastic badge if you pre register before the con or you get a paper badge if you register at the con itself.

Either way you get a badge when you register.

Another question: Does the paper badge have the information like name and badge name on it? Or is it blank?

To save everyone time (and to keep my email from overflowing) I will explain what is happening with the badges right now (if you already emailed within the last 2 or so weeks then you most likely already know what I'm going to say so just ignore this then).

The last month and a half has been really busy for us at registration (both with reg work and personal stuff) so we couldn't do a mail out in April. We understand it's really frustrating not getting something you paid for yet and it's frustrating for us that we can't work to get this all done.

The good news is I'm getting the staff together to do a large print out this Sunday and I plan to catch up on all of the earlier orders but I can't make any promises on stuff ordered on the latter part of April (which would be printed in June instead if not done this meeting).

Also remember that all of the staff are volunteers and we have to plan these meeting around everyone's free time but we do normally do these once a month (twice sometimes closer to con when we are swamped with orders).

Thank you guys for understanding and if there are any problems email us at registration@kumoricon.org

P.S. We are working on this year's FAQ which should answer most simple questions and you guys can leave questions there for us because we will be checking that thread more often than this one after we post it (by sometime next week).

The badges don't actually get printed in order (our printer is weird...) but they usually get printed in the next batch if they get skipped during the previous print session.

Since we've only had one print out this year, we have a handful from December that have not been printed yet so we should have it sent out in the next batch.

There was about 600-650 badges printed last Sunday (I'd check for a more accurate amount but I'm in lazy mode right now) and we will mail them out when the last 150 of that batch get their envelopes stamped because we ran out during the meeting. We did planned to print another 150 but we ran out of time because we started printing 2 hours late due of some issues with the printer and some other stuff.

The batch should be mailed out sometime within the next two weeks at the latest.

Besides forgetting to reprint 3 badges that were pulled because they fell out of my pile before I noticed after I shut down the program (don't worry! They were not envelope stuffed and will be reprinted and sent in June), I'd say it was a good meeting!

P.S. My staff is awesome (even when they have to deal with their idiot managers).

I finally got my badge  :D #789

Question though. Since it is in card form and is encouraged to keep in my wallet with my ID, does that mean we don't have to wear our badges like last year? This is my first pre-reg so I don't know the process. It would be awesome if that were the case because there were so many pictures where people (myself included) forgot to take their badges off. >.<

You will need to wear your badge at con. The reason the registration letter tells you to keep it near your ID, is so that you'll have those two things together for check in. You'll need to go to the reg line friday night/saturday morning, and you'll get your Kumoricon 2012 badge holder, and swag bag and be ready to go :)

I really wish we could make it a badge free con, but it would be impossible to tell who actually was registered and who wasn't. So it's unfortunately a pretty unfeasible idea.

So, will these cards be our badge that we place in a card holder (at least that would be smaller compared to last year) and I hope there will be a lanyard maybe.

Yes it will be the one that is in your badge holder.

And it will be badge clips again. We kept running into problems with lanyards and cosplays, so we opted for the clips.

Well, hopefully having it attached to a con-goer-owned lanyard will be an option, especially if we're still required to have the badges above the waist because I'm not clipping that thing onto my body for my cosplay that happens to be shirtless. No nipple piercings (or choppings in this case) for me >.<

Lol yea, 8f you have your own lanyard I'm sure it would be okayh to wear it. I wore mine with my "I <3 Zombies" lanyard last year and had no problems. But then again, most of my best friends were staff and let me get away with a lot lol

Yes, if you bring your own lanyard, you can totally wear it. Heck, if you have a shirtless cosplay, come find me, and I'll give you one of mine.

The last batch was a few weeks back, and the next one is going out on next weekend. If you have him email his full name to registration@kumoricon.org, they can check to see if his has been mailed out yet.

And this year is going very well for mail-outs. I have a strong feeling that registration in 2012 will be better than it has ever been.

I suppose it's a good thing I didn't pre-register for this like I was thinking of doing. I just realized that I wont make it back in time from Star Wars Celebration VI to make it to KumoriCon. I get back on just about the last day of Kcon. I was looking forward to going this year, too. Sadness... :(

Hi there!  Our next badge send-out is going to be this weekend, and we're going to send out all the badges we weren't able to send out last time (for varying reasons), as well as all the new badges we've had since our last send-out, which was a month ago.

We're not always able to send out badges in sequential order, unfortunately, which might be why your friend didn't receive hers yet.  You should also tell her to email registration@kumoricon.org if she hasn't yet, so that we can make sure that it hasn't gotten lost in the mail or there wasn't an issue when attempting to send it out, just to make sure. :)
