You can print attendee and speaker badges for your event. The QR codes on the badges can be scanned by the event organizer, or by other attendees wishing to create contact lists between themselves.

Introduction

Grenadine lets you print badges for your attendees, speakers, and anyone else who needs one at your event. Grenadine supports a variety of badge formats from different manufacturers. The most common badge size is an Avery 5392 Nametag Insert Refill which measures 3” x 4”.

Printing a badge within Grenadine Event Management Software does not require any special kind of printer. Our system generates a PDF which you can easily send to any printer.

Decide What Gets Printed On The Badge

You can include the following elements on your badges:

  • The event name
  • The event logo
  • Cut marks (thin lines that help you determine where the label boundaries are)
  • The attendee or person’s name (this information is the only mandatory information on the badge)
  • The person’s organization or company
  • The person’s title
  • The country where the person is from
  • A professional photo of the person
  • The ticket type(s) for the person
  • The category(ies) for the person (i.e. the categories that you have set on this person’s profile)
  • The person’s registration number
  • A scannable QR code (can be scanned by the event organizer using the check-in app, or by another attendee using the attendee mobile app)

To choose what will be on your badges, as well as the default label size, go to the Grenadine Event Manager > Your Event > Registration > Configure Badges.

Here’s an example of what a badge may look like:

Printing the badges

You can print badges in one of two ways:

  1. Reports > People > Badges

    . This prints out all the badges at once, or for a selection of attendees, with the settings that you have chosen from the previous step.

  2. To print the back side of a badge: Reports > Other > Back of Badge Label. This is useful when you are printing speaker badges because their schedules are printed on the back labels.

  3. In the People section, choose a number of people from the list and click on the button at the top of the table.
