The Evolution of WizID

At Wizid, we’re committed to providing you with great value products, when you need them, and without fuss.

While we’re a small business, customer service is at the heart of all we do. Our team is totally committed and genuinely care about how we deliver our products and services to you.

Wizid found its calling back in 1997 when it started supplying identification products to festivals and events all over Australia. Today, Wizid remains at the forefront of the access and identification products industry constantly refining and developing new ways to manage patron entitlement, access and security.

A lot has changed since we first started out, and thanks to the wonder of the internet, we’ve seen many competitors come and go. For many, the simple challenge of providing quality products together with some good old fashioned customer service proved too hard.

Wizid is here for the long haul. We’re an active part of many local communities raising awareness and supporting surf clubs, charities and philanthropic organisations with their fundraising endeavours. We believe in giving back, and where possible, lending a hand.

When you place an order with Wizid two things happen. First, a donation is made on behalf of every invoice raised – no matter how small. And second, we place every customers name into a weekly prize draw to acknowledge their support and thank them for their business.

Like the Internet, Wizid continues to evolve too. In July last year, we launched Wizid Promotions and entered the branded promotional merchandise arena.  This added products like T-Shirts, Caps, Mugs, Sports Bottles, USB’s, Promotional Signage, pens and Stubby Holders to the already popular range of event consumables. No matter what you’re looking for, if it can be stamped, embroidered, screen printed, embossed or engraved, Wizid Promotions can source it for you.

This year, Wizid will launch its new online ticketing and registration platform, Attende.  An Australian designed and hosted event registration platform, Wizid customer can now create and manage events on the fly wherever internet service is available.

Attende will allow event organisers to create eye-catching event, sell tickets, manage guest data, sell merchandise and securely collect payment. And best of all, it’s simple and easy to use

Free to use for Free events, Attende is ideal for charities, not-for-profit organisations and corporate fundraisers.  If you’re conducting a paid event though, Attende will apply a small fee to the ticket price and provide competitive rates to manage credit card transactions.  Why not give it a try? Visit www.attende.com.au and you could be selling tickets in minutes.

Alternatively, if you need branded promotional merchandise for an upcoming event, that’s where Wizid Promotions can help. To view thousands of branded promotion products and ideas why not visit at www.wizidpromotions.com.au.

Wristbands & Lanyards are pretty useful in a game of Scrabble. The word wristbands has 10 letters & a value of 18 points. 418 words can be made from the letters with 4 letter words being the most popular with 142. Some top words from the letters of wristbands include Bandits, Inwards & Strains.

Likewise the word Lanyards is also handy & has a value of 12 points with 115 words able to be made from its letters. The best being Sandal, snarly & salary.

Wizid on the other hand has only 2 words able to be made from its letters. Wiz  relates to someone with dazzling skills in a particular field & ID which is a card, badge or media used to identify the bearer.

Wristbands & Divine Proportion

Ever heard of Fibonacci numbers? Or the Fibonacci ratio of 1.618

It’s like a magic number which is replicated throughout the Universe in many ways & also the Human Body.

The Golden Ratio

 

Why Wristbands?

Did you know the length from wrist to elbow is the same length as your foot or that same forearm distance in relation to your hand is 1.618, the Divine proportion also known as the Golden ratio.

Well proportions come into play with wristbands as well. The wrist being smaller than the hand so that a correctly fitted wristband will not slide up from the wrist over the hand & be transferred to another person. Wristbands therefore make the ideal medium to identify patrons in a simple highly visible way.

A few other ratios of interest are:

  • The length of your foot is the same as the distance around your fist.
  • The distance around your fist is half the distance around your neck.
  • The distance around your neck is half the distance around your waist.
  • These proportions are averaged across populations & will not be exact for every individual.

Based on these ratios we could try neckbands for security instead of wristbands as proportionally they would work the same way, but that’s an idea unlikely to catch on.
