If you’re creating a double sided badge for your event, there are a few steps you’ll need to complete first in order to achieve a successful print.
If badges were ordered from our partner vendor
If you've ordered pre-printed badge stock from our partner vendor, your badge stock will be printed with black eye marks that will alert the printer that it must feed every two badges, not one.
1. Look at your badge stock to ensure that there is a black line after every two badges. If you find a black line after every badge, your stock was printed incorrectly. You will need to notify the vendor about the misprint.
Please see the sample below for an example.
2. Next, log into your Boomset account and access your badge designer. Create two badges, one for your front design and one for your back design. Feel free to include any information you need. To learn how to add schedules, images, custom questions, etc., jump to our badges page.
3A. IF TWO BADGE TEMPLATES ARE DIFFERENT (ZEBRA):
When you create a new badge, it will ask you to give the badge a title. Please title one badge "firstimage" and the second badge "secondimage". **Very important** Make sure you title them exactly as shown, without any extra characters. These are trigger words that let the printer know that it has to flip the second badge. This means that, when you print, one badge will print upside down while the other will print facing you.
3B. IF TWO BADGE TEMPLATES ARE THE SAME, AND THE BLACK LINE IS ON THE BACK OF EVERY BADGE (ZEBRA):
Use the trigger word: "rectoversodouble". (Black eye marks are created with pre-printed badge stock)
3C. IF TWO BADGE TEMPLATES ARE THE SAME, AND THE BLACK LINE IS ON THE BACK OF EVERY TWO BADGES (ZEBRA):
Use the trigger word: "rectoversosingle". (Black eye marks are created with pre-printed badge stock)
3D. IF TWO BADGE TEMPLATES ARE THE SAME (BROTHER):
Use the trigger word: "doubledoublebrother".
**Please note** Always check with your Account Manager to find the option best suited for your event.
