Badged Events

When you're organising a badged event you can do better than simply handwriting them! With our project-managed service, we provide choices for great-looking professional badges to suit every budget and requirement, including a free design service.

There are only three elements you need to decide on.

The way you badge your delegates

  1. The fast and efficient choice - use E-badges
  2. For the quickest and most reliable entry option - choose Wallet Pass
  3. The really simple and cost-effective choice - use Print at Home badges
  4. For straight-forward, no frills - choose Pre-printed badges
  5. For a personalised experience with the option to include additional items - choose Mailed-out badges with a fulfilment service

If you want to gather meaningful reports about your delegates you need to include a barcode with your badge choice.


The type of badge you use

  1. Plastic cards that are pre-printed for you using your data
  2. Butterfly Badges which don't require a plastic wallet, are super quick to print, and use 'peel and stick' to create the badge
  3. Anti-tear laminated fanfold badges which are ideal for outdoor events or any event where you don't want to use a wallet but you also want to avoid paper badges ripping
  4. Folded paper badges for A6 and A7 badge sizes, and which enable you to include more information including logos, agendas, colour coding, event information and barcodes


How you print your badges onsite

There are THREE options for printing badges on site determined by the size of your audience, the space available, your budget, and your staff availability.

  1. Single User - a great option for smaller events, or when you're handling onsite registration yourself. Combine pre-printed badges or print-at-home badges with the option to print
  2. Fast Track - the speedy solution using barcodes requiring a simple scan and the badge prints in seconds. Check out PrintPod, the freestanding contact-free badge printing station.
  3. Look Up and Print - a manned registration desk solution with full flexibility to look up, amend or add registration details, and to print badges

Our software is built with the user in mind making it quick and easy to learn and use. It copes with long names and foreign and accented characters too. And it can print full colour badges on demand in just a few seconds so there's no need for pre-printing badge stock.
