We are amazed by the creativity of our customers. They take the online editor to the limit and end up creating some very interesting things. Our mail-merge feature is powerful and users leverage this to build personalized printed material of all sorts.

Although name badges for events are our specialty, we’re always happy to see new and original applications of our online tool.

Backstage or VIP passes for concerts.

Instead of providing generic passes for your special guests, you can print their names or any other information directly on the badge. You can also add QR codes to scan people in, to make the badge even more secure!

Personalized wedding invitations.

Most of the times wedding invitations aren’t personalized because of the print method that is used, which doesn’t allow variations in the print. But we use digital machines, we can print the attendees names right onto the invite.

Surprise your family and friends by including their name in the print!

Pro tip

You won’t be needing plastic holders for these, so right after placing the order shoot us an email requesting no holders and we’ll refund you their cost.

Name badges with random prizes embedded in QR codes.

Since QR codes are indecipherable to the naked eye, event organizers can get very creative when selecting what information to display once the code gets scanned. One our users added random prizes to the codes, so when the staff scanned the badge the attendee got a nice surprise.

Pro tip

Have an iPhone? Open the Camera app and scan the code. You’ll see the prize!
