Design steps

The badge design process includes three steps: create a template, enter your data, and finally, print. Your template will serve as a base pattern that can be applied to multiple badges.  By adding images, text and graphics, you can create as many templates as you like, mixing and matching as you see fit. Once you’re pleased with your finished template, you’ll need to import your chosen data. Lastly, you’ll print! Further instructions on each step are detailed below. 



Data entry

A: Once you’ve created your template, the next step is to enter your chosen data ((specific names and titles). There are two ways to enter your data:

 - Upload your data via CSV file

 - Enter your desired text directly into your saved template. You’ll need to make sure you have editable text boxes to complete this step. 

You can create as many name badges and signs as you like by typing names, titles or other data into the editable text boxes. You can also change each individual badge, sign's image. For this step, you’ll need an editable image holder on your template. If you don’t have one in place, please return to the design screen to set it up. 



Design printing

A: You will begin printing from the data entry screen, where the Printing Alignment Wizard will pop up to guide you. There are four steps to the printing process. Follow the Wizard’s instructions at each of the following steps:

  1. Align your printer to your template
  2. Print a test page
  3. Place your insert sheets in the printer
  4. Print your name badges/signage 



Layout design

You only need to design the first badge and the layout will be applied to all  your badges. You can personalize each of these with names or job titles in the next step.
