Conference Badges & Printers
Print Your Own Color Name Badges for Conferences and Events
If you organize conferences or special events, investing in conference badges and printers allows you to quickly and easily produce your own full color conference badges complete with photo ID. Not only can you secure access to your special events by using photo identification and barcodes, you can also use your conference badges and printers to brand your badges. This gives your event that much more credibility. Many attendees will keep their conference name badges as a keepsake for years to come, and your business name and logo will be front and center.
What Do You Need to Print Conference Badges?
If you’re paying a commercial printing service to print conference name tags and badges, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn just how affordable it is to print your own conference name badges. First, you’ll need a conference name badge printer such as the Epson TM-C3500, Epson TM-C3400-LT (a self-contained kiosk), Primera LX500, or the Primera LX900 (to name just a few of the many conference badge printer options available).
We highly recommend investing in conference badges and printers so that you can take full advantage of color graphics and photo identification. These features will set your conference name tags apart. DuraFast Label Company offers several affordable color conference badge printers that are ideal for printing conference name tags on demand. These printers are versatile and fast enough to print conference badges instantly when attendees check in. With their low purchase price, ease of use, and affordable consumables, you may even want to have two or more conference badge printers onsite at your next major conference or event.
Conference Name Badges
In addition to a color conference badge printer such as the Epson TM-C3500, you’ll need blank conference name badges and tags. We sell blank conference name badges that are optimized for the conference badge printers that we sell. For example, if you’re using the Epson TM-C3500 conference badge printer, our TM-C3500 name tags are formulated for the pigment inks and technology used by that printer.
Expiring Conference Name Tags
Another option you might consider is using expiring conference name tags. For example, if you’re hosting a multi-day event, you may be concerned about attendees giving their conference name badges to someone else. While incorporating a color photo ID into the conference badge itself plays a huge role in preventing name badge fraud, using expiring conference name tags adds another layer of security.
This type of conference name tag includes a chemically reactive phrase, “VOID,” that appears about 24 hours after the tag has been activated. We carry expiring conference name badges and tags that are designed to work with the dye-based inkjet printers like the Primera LX400, LX500 and LX900 color label printer.
The Primera LX500 is a compact, high resolution full color label and name badge printer that prints name badges up to 4 inches wide. It is the perfect size for printing name badges. The Primera LX900 is a larger unit, capable of printing larger badges and labels – up to 8 inches and with a faster print speed. This is a versatile desktop name badge printer that prints in normal mode at a speed of 1.8 inches per second. Both the Primera LX500 and LX900 print at a resolution up to 4800 dpi.
Conference Badge Printer Recommendation
Our top pick for printing your own conference name badges is the Epson TM-C3500 conference badge printer. The Epson TM-C3500 is the perfect size for printing full color conference badges at check-in, and it prints at 4 inches per second — and the ink dries instantly with no smudging or smearing. It also has banding control and can handle large rolls of blank conference name badges. It prints at 360 x 720 dpi, a resolution that looks great, yet prints quickly and without using up too much ink — the perfect balance for conferences and events.
That is why large conferences and conventions like Comic Con in San Diego use the Epson TM-C3500 to print their conference badges for their visitors in full color. One additional item conference organizers like about the Epson TM-C3500 is the optional Spare-In-the-Air upgraded warranty they can purchase for 3 years. This upgrade ensures that a replacement printer arrives in one business day should a problem with the printer occur. Epson will ship the replacement unit with Express courier service.
Not only can you use the Epson TM-C3500 to print conference badges, this printer can also be used to print wristbands, event tickets, all-access passes, and more. Check out the Epson TM-C3500 now or contact DuraFast Label Company to learn more about conference badges and printers.
