Webex Events Onsite lets you design and print completely custom badges that are unique to your event. You have several options when deciding which badge type and size to use, and this article walks you through each option so you can make an informed decision. 🧠

Available badge types and sizes

Here are all the badge types and sizes available for use with Webex Events Onsite:








Clear adhesive

White adhesive

⭐️ Keep in mind, single-sided and plain paper badges always require a badge holder because they don't have lanyard perforations. Webex Events doesn't supply badge holders.

Webex Events Onsite supports several different badge sizes ranging from 3 x 2 inches to 4 x 6 inches. The size you choose depends on your preferences and needs. Before committing to a size, think carefully about how much information you want to print on the badge. Smaller sizes limit the amount of available space for information and could ultimately lead to cramped-looking badges.

There are also different types to choose from, including single- or double-sided paper badges and clear or white adhesive labels. Some types require ribbon, which adds a step to the printer configuration process.

We generally recommend tear-resistant 4x3 or 4x6 double-sided badges. These badges are durable, don't require badge holders, have 3 lanyard slots, don't require printer ribbon, and are the easiest to print.

For other types of badges, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Clear adhesive badges always require ribbon to print and always come in rolls.

  • Clear adhesive badges must be adhered to another blank or pre-printed badge, such as a plastic badge.

  • Single-sided badges aren't tear-resistant and don't have lanyard perforations, so they require a badge holder. Since Webex Events doesn't supply badge holders, you must source them yourself.

  • Regular paper (not tear-resistant) badges require a badge holder, even if they're double-sided.


The ZD620 and ZD621 printers we support only print in black and white. If you want badges with color, you can order paper or plastic badges pre-printed with color designs and then simply print attendee information on the badge.

⭐ Keep in mind, pre-printing color elements on the badge costs extra.

We recommend careful thought before ordering badges with pre-printed dark backgrounds. The ZD620 and ZD621 printers don't print white. Instead, they print black around the elements that are white. The "white" elements will be the color of the badge background.
