Name Badge Printing

Usually small business means small office and a small team. When you need to make company name badges or badges for employees, badge maker machine purchase seems to be too expensive. Just count – the price per one ID badge print may exceed $200. Isn’t it pricey for name badges?

Hi, I am trying to make badges for our 40th high school reunion. I find your rectangle badge with photo is perfect. However, I have to make 120 of them & am trying to figure out how to make & print more than one at a time. Can you let me know how to do that?

Thanks so much & have a great day 🙂
