School Safety for Elementary Schools- Parent Pickup Tags, Backpack Tags, and More

The 2015-2016 school year is right around the corner (seriously–where did the summer go?) Getting a hundred or more kids out of the classroom & safely on their way home doesn’t have to involve honking horns, crying & car accidents. Enhance your school’s security and expedite school dismissal with these tips from Rydin Decal:

Implement Parent Pickup Tags

Parent Pickup Tags hang from the rearview mirrors of parent’s cars and are displayed when a parent picks up a child. These large, easy-to-read tags will help keep school dismissal safe and organized. Ask that parentU_11742_183701B ParentPUtags cluster v1s display their tags when picking up children at school to accelerate matching students with the correct parent. Rydin offers Parent Pickup Tags in three sizes: Regular, Racetrack & Jumbo.

We have had numerous schools contact us and tell us they utilized a local business to sponsor their Parent Pickup tags. This is a great way to cut costs at your school, and also gives a local business prominent advertising within the community.

 Provide Students with Backpack Tags

U_11742_183701B BackpackTags cluster V1Backpack Tags allow staff to easily identify which students are walkers, bus riders or being picked up by a parent. Numbers can be coordinated with Parent Pickup Tags for even greater security & orderly dismissal. Have teachers call out student’s numbers as cars approach. When students are called, have them move to a predesignated “loading zone” to help maintain a steady vehicle flow. Backpack & Parent Pickup Tags are printed using bright colors and large numbers or letters, so they are easy to read at a distance.


 Communicate Your New Program to Parents and Students

Be sure to communicate the Parent Pickup & school dismissal procedure to both parents and students when you implement a new program. Include information such as:

  • Driver safety rules, such as speed limits
  • Student dismissal routine (times, locations and the process)
  • How to replace lost tags
  • Forgotten tag procedure, such as showing ID at the front office
  • Rules for carpools and guest pickup

We hope these tips will help you create a fast, safe, and convenient system for Parent Pickup and school dismissal. We hope everyone has a safe and wonderful school year!

Summer of Trade Shows!

Wow…it’s been a busy two weeks for the Rydin Decal team. We’ve been touring the U.S. attending several trade shows and meeting many of our great customers. It’s always a pleasure to put a face to a name, and let our customers know how much we appreciate them.

Here’s a recap of what we’ve been up to:

IPI Conference & Expo-June 29th-July 2nd, 2015

ipi_2015 conference logo_final small_200x145

The International Parking Institute (IPI) conference was held in Las Vegas this year, and had the largest attendance in the conference’s history. Team Rydin started the show off right with the IPI 5k Fun Run! It was literally 90 degrees by 6:30 am, and there were numerous sets of stairs to tackle, so this run was quite the challenge for us. Our Bid Team Sales Manager Jenny came in 1st place, and our Director of Marketing Stephanie came in 2nd place for the Women’s Division, which was awesome. Director of Sales Mike finished and didn’t pass out, so that made him happy. Overall a very fun morning!



Next up, we hit the trade show floor, which was full of parking industry professionals. We chatted with many of our customers, and even took a few photos of them proudly posing with their permits!

Rydin Decal was honored to be part of the Ignite: Technology presentation on RFID technology. Our Director of Sales Mike Weiler, University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Dan Carpenter, and TagMaster’s Ali Khaksar all contributed to this informative and insightful presentation.

Even though we were so busy during the show, we managed to sneak in a bit of free time and saw the Aquarium Reef at Mandalay Bay.

All in all, IPI was a great experience for our company and we enjoyed meeting so many people in our industry. We are already looking forward to next year’s show in Nashville, which (fingers crossed) will be a bit less hot than 113 degrees!


IACLEA Conference- June 29th-July 2nd, 2015


IACLEA (The International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators) was held this year in the beautiful city of Nashville! We enjoyed talking parking permits with our amazing customers in this industry.

A trip to Nashville wouldn’t be complete without a little sight seeing, so Team Rydin caught a Minor League baseball game and listened to some country music!

NASRO Conference- July 6th-8th, 2015


The National Association of School Resource Officers’ conference was held in scenic Orlando, Florida this year (all these trade shows were in beautiful locations...life is rough! :) ). Rydin Decal had not participated in this conference before, so we were excited to set up our booth and meet everyone. We learned a ton about the complexities of this group, and were so happy to “talk shop” with our customers.

That’s a wrap folks! We are all grateful for the experiences and knowledge that was gained during Summer of Trade Shows 2015, and look forward to several more shows we are attending later this year. Stay tuned!

4 Common Misconceptions About Parking Permits

4 Common Misconceptions About Parking Permits 

3d small people - with a question mark

1. Parking Permits are generic and boring.
When you choose Rydin Decal for your parking permit printing, you have the ability to choose between hundreds of different combinations of materials, shapes, colors, sizes and logos. The possibilities are endless, and we can help you create the exact design to fit your school or organization.

2. Parking Permits are expensive.
Team Rydin can help work within your budget, and offer solutions to help manage the costs of printing parking permits.

3. Parking Permits are easy to copy, steal or tamper with.
We offer more advanced levels of parking permit customization and security features, including holograms, bar coding, reflective and destructible materials. Our knowledgeable Account Representatives and in-house Designers will be happy to turn your unique requirements into a reality.

4. Parking Permits aren’t necessary or effective.
Parking Permits are an ideal way to ensure parking spaces are available for the people who belong in your lot – and to keep unwanted or suspicious vehicles out.  When parkers display their hang tag parking permits from their mirror or their parking permit stickers on their window, parking officers will be able to quickly determine if the vehicle is registered and is allowed.

We would love to tell you more about our product line, or to assist you with any parking permit need you have. Please contact us today!
