Q: What is a good way to GET STARTED?
A: Many schools provide every student with one Starter Spirit Brag Tag and one Ball Chain at the beginning of the school year. Then students add Attendance Brag Tags to their Brag Chain throughout the school year. Check out Spirit Tags for ideas on your Custom Starter Spirit Tags. Ball chains are sold separately so you can decide if you'd like for your students to proudly wear Attendance Tags around their neck, or dangle the tags from their backpacks.
Q: Which chain should I get?
The most popular for elementary schools is the 4” back pack chain followed by the 24” neck chain. Students use the 4” chain to attach tags to their backpacks. The 24” chains are the perfect length for elementary students to wear. The 30” chains should be for middle and high schools or if you want younger students to be able to put on over their head without unclasping. Our military folks wear 30” chains. Our ball chains are made in the USA.
Q: How many chains do I need?
Get one chain for each student enrolled plus a few extras in case students loose chains or new students are added. We even find teachers and staff want to collect tags on their chain. Students add their tags on to their chain so they will only need one chain.
Q: Do students take their chains home?
A: It is up to you. However, we recommend that they are kept at school. Students were their chains during the school day and leave them in a designated place at the end of each school day. At the end of the year the chains are taken home with all there Brag Tags.
Q: Do I need to get my school name on Attendance Brag Tags?
A: Not at all, we create so many unique attendance brag tags that are fun for students to collect every month! You can simply add Stock Attendance Brag Tags to your cart and order immediately.

Q: Do I need to know how many Attendance Tags I want to order at the beginning of the year?
A: If you are ordering monthly, you do not. We recommend any schools that have fewer than 400 students to order all your attendance tags at one time. This will save you money on quantity discounts and shipping. Any left over tags can be used the following year for kindergarten students.
