Webex Events Onsite supports several different badge sizes ranging from 3x2 inches to 4x6 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, have three lanyard slots, and are the easiest to print. They don't require badge holders or printer ribbon.
Lanyard slots have punch-outs to suit your lanyard preferences, whether single clip or double clip. Only double-sided tear-resistant badges have lanyard slots.
For other types of badges, here are some considerations 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 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, consider one of the following options:
Order paper badges with pre-printed color designs, then print attendee information on those pre-printed badges.
Order plastic badges with pre-printed color designs, then print attendee information on clear adhesive badges and adhere them to the plastic badges.
