Select the type and stock. If you plan on using OnArrival Premium to print name badges onsite, select OnArrival Name Badge as the badge type, but keep in mind that event and session custom fields, conditional logic that depends on agenda items or event feedback, any fee or payment data, and continuing education credits, agenda item, and invoice data tags are not supported with this badge type. If you need these features, select Name Badge as the badge type instead.

Choose a stock size based on the badge stock you've purchased.
If you're using OnArrival Premium or an Event in a Box to print badges onsite, select OnArrival 3"x4" stock (single sided) for single-sided badges, or OnArrival 6"x4" stock (double sided 3"x4") for double-sided badges.
 
NOTE: To add a custom stock, click the ellipsis (...), enter the required fields, and click Add New.
 
If you choose Agenda Item Ticket, a new section appears. Click Add Item and specify which admission items, sessions, tracks, or optional items will require this badge. Click OK. A product ticket will be generated for every selected item.

Determine who can print this name badge.
 
NOTE: If you're using OnArrival Premium or an Event in a Box to print badges onsite, you must associate all registration types to the name badge.

3 Set overrides, if necessary. If you're creating the name badge directly from an event, this section will appear. In the Badge Overrides section, you can give fellow account users and registrants the ability to edit certain fields that appear on the badge. This ensures no one is offended by typos, funky spelling, or being called a variation of their name that only their grandma uses. Simply switch "Enable badge overrides" to Yes.

Determine if attendees can edit their own information. Click Add Field and select which fields can be modified.

NOTE: These changes will not update their Invitee or Address Book record.

Click Next.
 
4 Design the badge. Use the Badge & Certificate Creation Wizard to build your creation.
 
User-added image

If you'd like to add a background image click User-added image in the Background section and choose a background from the folder that matches your badge's dimensions.
 
NOTE: If you're using an Event in a Box to print badges onsite, these printers print black text and images only. Any color text or images on your badges will print spotty or not at all.
 
Not seeing anything that grabs your attention? You can add a custom background image by clicking Upload, Upload again, then locating your file on your computer or network. Select the folder that the image should be added to, or create a new one by clicking New Folder in the bottom left. Click Upload one last time, then click Continue, select the image and click Insert.

If adding profile images, or any other images, ensure you add a JPEG image. PNG images may not render when printing.

 
NOTE: To add a single line of text, drag the Text component onto your canvas. For multiple lines, go with the Text Area component.

When adding data tags that will populate with varied lengths, select them once they're on the canvas and switch Dynamic Resizing to Yes. This ensures that no matter how extensive their name or obnoxious their title it will stay within the limits you define. Prevent your text, such as the order details or the current registration, from rendering too small to read by ensuring the box is large enough to contain all of the text. The best way to ensure this is to stretch the box to span the width of the badge. Depending on the amount of text, the size of the text will automatically increase or decrease to ensure it fits.
 
User-added image
 
NOTE: Dynamically resized text never gets larger than 50 points.

Data tags can also be combined by selecting one and dragging it on top of another.

Using session scanning to mark participants onsite? Be sure to add the QR code data tag onto the badge with the registrant's confirmation number.

 
NOTE: Ensure everything is lined up by selecting a grid size in the toolbar.

Add a quick visual distinction to your attendees' badge with conditional content. Simply drag the appropriate element (either conditional text or conditional image) onto the canvas, then define the conditions that must be met in order for it to appear. You can tell which elements are conditional by looking for the  if  watermark.

NOTE: Items, sessions, and questions must have a code to appear in these dropdowns.
Capitalize on both sides of your badge by doubling the stock and using the options in the Actions section of the Toolbar to mirror or rotate elements.

Once you've completed that masterpiece, click Finish.

5 Add the badge or certificate to your event, if necessary. If you created the badge or certificate in Admin to use as a template, you'll need to associate it to your event. Begin by hovering over the Solutions dropdown and click Events. Then, select your event.

Hover over Website & Registration and, under Onsite, click Badges & Certificates. Click Create New.

Select Using a badge or certificate from your library. Click the ellipsis (...) at the end of the field. From the pop-up that appears, hover over the Folder dropdown and select Name Badges or Certificates, then click Select next to the name badge or certificate you want to use.

Then, set badge overrides and continue designing the badge.

Select the type and stock. If you plan on using OnArrival Premium to print name badges onsite, select OnArrival Name Badge as the badge type, but keep in mind that event and session custom fields, conditional logic that depends on agenda items or event feedback, any fee or payment data, and continuing education credits, agenda item, and invoice data tags are not supported with this badge type. If you need these features, select Name Badge as the badge type instead.

Choose a stock size based on the badge stock you've purchased.
If you're using OnArrival Premium or an Event in a Box to print badges onsite, select OnArrival 3"x4" stock (single sided) for single-sided badges, or OnArrival 6"x4" stock (double sided 3"x4") for double-sided badges.
 
NOTE: To add a custom stock, click the ellipsis (...), enter the required fields, and click Add New.
 
If you choose Agenda Item Ticket, a new section appears. Click Add Item and specify which admission items, sessions, tracks, or optional items will require this badge. Click OK. A product ticket will be generated for every selected item.

Determine who can print this name badge.
 
NOTE: If you're using OnArrival Premium or an Event in a Box to print badges onsite, you must associate all registration types to the name badge.

3 Set overrides, if necessary. If you're creating the name badge directly from an event, this section will appear. In the Badge Overrides section, you can give fellow account users and registrants the ability to edit certain fields that appear on the badge. This ensures no one is offended by typos, funky spelling, or being called a variation of their name that only their grandma uses. Simply switch "Enable badge overrides" to Yes.

Determine if attendees can edit their own information. Click Add Field and select which fields can be modified.

If you'd like to add a background image click User-added image in the Background section and choose a background from the folder that matches your badge's dimensions.
 
NOTE: If you're using an Event in a Box to print badges onsite, these printers print black text and images only. Any color text or images on your badges will print spotty or not at all.
 
Not seeing anything that grabs your attention? You can add a custom background image by clicking Upload, Upload again, then locating your file on your computer or network. Select the folder that the image should be added to, or create a new one by clicking New Folder in the bottom left. Click Upload one last time, then click Continue, select the image and click Insert.

If adding profile images, or any other images, ensure you add a JPEG image. PNG images may not render when printing.

 
NOTE: To add a single line of text, drag the Text component onto your canvas. For multiple lines, go with the Text Area component.

When adding data tags that will populate with varied lengths, select them once they're on the canvas and switch Dynamic Resizing to Yes. This ensures that no matter how extensive their name or obnoxious their title it will stay within the limits you define. Prevent your text, such as the order details or the current registration, from rendering too small to read by ensuring the box is large enough to contain all of the text. The best way to ensure this is to stretch the box to span the width of the badge. Depending on the amount of text, the size of the text will automatically increase or decrease to ensure it fits.

NOTE: Dynamically resized text never gets larger than 50 points.

Data tags can also be combined by selecting one and dragging it on top of another.

Using session scanning to mark participants onsite? Be sure to add the QR code data tag onto the badge with the registrant's confirmation number.

 
NOTE: Ensure everything is lined up by selecting a grid size in the toolbar.

Add a quick visual distinction to your attendees' badge with conditional content. Simply drag the appropriate element (either conditional text or conditional image) onto the canvas, then define the conditions that must be met in order for it to appear. You can tell which elements are conditional by looking for the  if  watermark.

NOTE: Items, sessions, and questions must have a code to appear in these dropdowns.
Capitalize on both sides of your badge by doubling the stock and using the options in the Actions section of the Toolbar to mirror or rotate elements.

Once you've completed that masterpiece, click Finish.

5 Add the badge or certificate to your event, if necessary. If you created the badge or certificate in Admin to use as a template, you'll need to associate it to your event. Begin by hovering over the Solutions dropdown and click Events. Then, select your event.

Hover over Website & Registration and, under Onsite, click Badges & Certificates. Click Create New.

Select Using a badge or certificate from your library. Click the ellipsis (...) at the end of the field. From the pop-up that appears, hover over the Folder dropdown and select Name Badges or Certificates, then click Select next to the name badge or certificate you want to use.

Then, set badge overrides and continue designing the badge.
