The Event Envelope


Years ago I threw sign up sheets away. You know the struggle of a student signs up so his 18 buddies sign up then student changes his mind and crosses off his name then the domino effect.
I got tired of that. I also got tired of kids looking first before deciding to go. Be a leader and sign your name up! The kids aren't broke but the system is.

So I came up with the envelope system. When we have events students register or sign up either online or by using the event envelope. It is a great way to keep track of the cash but also a way of getting information and keeping a list of who is going with better accuracy. Students can also take the envelope home to remind them to bring their money the next week. Perhaps you have done similar?

I know this is ridiculously late to be commenting on a blog, but if you see this comment, would you tell me where/how you got these envelopes made and how much? Thanks!

Hey Rick!
What I did was created the template and then took it to a local print shop and had them do a case of envelopes for me. I can't remember how much they cost, it was a while ago but we still have plenty of envelopes.
