Build-On Tutorial:

Badges

Event Management Template: Badges

Overview

Tutorial summary

This Build-On lets your team print name badges for an event. They can print an individual badge from an attendee's registration record, or print all of the badges for an event from the event page. The Build-On creates a layout compatible with the Avery 5392 Name Badge Insert template, which is popular due to its compatibility with various badge holders (clip style, hanging style, etc.). However, you can adjust the Build-On to fit a different template if you need one.

What to expect

When you’re done with this Build-On, your team will be able to:

  • Print a set of name badges for an event
  • Print an individual name badge for an attendee
