Okay, After much deliberation and the great feedback from many of you I have concluded that the ID tags will be a DIY project.
The logistics of collecting money and distributing tags is cumbersome and slow, as many of you pointed out. While I appreciate that a lot of you were not put off by the cost of the PVC tags, I think this may prove a less expensive and easier distribution option. Besides, if you loose the tag you can easily replace it again without much difficulty.
I have posted a PDF file under the "More / Files" section of the Meetup site entitled (drum roll please...) Meetup.com ID Tag. Print it out on heavy stock paper. You can use the self adhesive laminating pouches available at many Wal-Mart stores or office supply stores like Staples. Or you can have it done for you at Staples or Fed-Ex/Kinkos. If you know someone (friend, work associate, etc.) who has access to a laminator you can bribe them to do it for you. Try to use a heavy mil laminate for a stronger tag.
Hope to see these flying around at our next meet up.
Thanks to everyone for their great input.
