You’re almost done with the coolest parts of planning your TEDx event. You’ve found incredible ideas, gotten a hold of great speakers and spotted the perfect location.

What about the name badges? Let’s be honest here, not the most interesting thing to do right? But they’re quite important, here is TED’s advice on them:

It’s a hallmark of a TEDx event: Attendees wear large, easy-to-read badges that make it easy to start conversations. Create personalized badges incorporating your logo and design, as well as each attendee’s name — and perhaps a photo, affiliation, Twitter handle … If you want to be even more creative, request a list of interests from each attendee that you can print on the badge to spark conversation at the event. (

With you can do all that and more, in just a few minutes.

One of the best features is that you can connect your Eventbrite account and have our system pull out your attendee information directly from your event. This saves even more time.

You also have the option to upload a spreadsheet if that’s a better fit for you.

Without further ado, here’s how to create name badges for your TEDx event:

1. Import your attendee information.

Sign up here and create an event by uploading a spreadsheet or connect your Eventbrite account if you’re already hosting the event with them.

2. Choose the product and size.

We offer PDF badges that can be customized to any format you need, these are super helpful if you already have Avery kits. Or full color 3"x4"printed badges that are shipped right to your door. Already inserted in plastic holders and with optional black lanyards.

3. Customize the badge design

Inside the editor you can do a lot of customization, like add/delete attendee info, create different badge types, add QR codes, change font colours, add logos or background images, change templates, among other things.

The design you see was entirely made with our editor in a few minutes.
