Which software applications are compatible with Badgy?

The "Badgy" solution consists of a Badgy printer and the Office-Cards software. This software uses Microsoft Excel (compatible with versions 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010, and 2013 (32-bit)). You need to have Excel installed on your computer to use it.
No installation is required: simply download a template from our website www.badgy.com (card from the CD that comes with the printer) . You can then access this software directly.

You can also use most of your printing and office tools because the Badgy printer uses a driver which is compatible with Windows and Mac computers. If you do, you should set your document to the card format(dimensions 86x54 mm / 3.370x2.125 inches – ISO CR80).

Improve your efficiency and also discover Evolis Badge Studio, the new software for creating and personalizing cards and badges. An ergonomic, user-friendly interface to create your badges simply and easily. If you use Office Card software, download Evolis Badge Studio for free.

Is it possible to use Badgy with other softwares than Office-Cards?

If you’re a Mac user, if you already have your own card design software, or if you need to use a document already created in Microsoft Word for example, you may want to use an alternative to Office-Cards in order to design your ID cards.

Badgy is supplied as an ‘all in one’ offer, but the printer can print documents designed in a large number of applications and softwares.

For instance, several Windows applications allow documents to be printed (for example the tools in Microsoft’s Office suite, i.e. MS-Word, MS-Access, Ms-Excel, MS-PowerPoint).
To gain familiarity with the layout of a card and configuring its formatting and printing, we suggest the following example.

E.g. How to set up and print a badge in Microsoft® Word

  •     After having set the Evolis printer as the default:
  •     Start the MS-Word application
  •     Click on the File in the menu bar, then on Page Setup
  •     The Paper tab has a Paper Size option, select CR80 Card
  •     In the Margins tab, set all margins to 0.05’’ (1.4 mm), then in the Orientation section, select Landscape.
  •     Close the window by clicking OK.
  •     Your Word window should now look like this: 

  • You are ready to customize your card by adding the various items that go to makeup a card (Logo and Illustration, ID photo, barcode, etc.)
  • Once ready, click on File and then on Print. 

How to save a badge template and new data?

When downloading a badge template, you need to save it to your hard drive so that your data and edits are saved as well.

For Excel 2007, 2010, or 2013, you should save your Office-Cards file in XLSB format (Menu "File | Save as" > Document type option).

 

How to download and use Badgy card templates?

From the Badgy website

Downloading Badgy card templates requires a personal user account.

To sign up for an online account, you first need your printer’s serial number (format similar to B81693149), located on the ID card of your printer. Then go to www.badgy.com.

  • Click “My Account” located à the top of the screen. Click “New user” if applicable. If you already have an account, simply select your template, then click “Login to download
  • Once your account is created, click “Download”
  • Save the template file to your computer and rename it if required.

From the CDROM supplied with the printer

  • Click the Choose a template menu item. You can now select a template from any of the 6 categories.
  • Click the selected template.
  • The file will open. Make sure you have defined the security level of macros to Medium (more info)

You then need to save this template to your computer, and therefore save any editing: Click File, then Save As from the Excel menu.

How do I choose which badge to download?

Office-Cards lets you fully modify your badges: you can hide all the features and/or add fixed and variable zones, to suit your needs.

Any badge from our card library can be adapted to your needs. You just need to select a badge you like using the categories menu or by doing a keyword search.

You can also download the "Badge Wizard" to help you create your own design from scratch.
