Which type of cards can be used with Badgy?

PVC, PVC composite, PVC laminated, and PET cards can be used with Badgy.

Badgy accepts cards in bank card format (dimensions: 86x54 mm/3.370x2.125 inches – ISO CR80) with a thickness of between 0.50 mm and 0.76 mm.

Print quality varies depending on the card manufacturer. That's why we recommend using Badgy consumables which are designed to optimize print quality. Using Evolis consumables prolongs the life of your badges and your Badgy printer.

I can't insert the cards. What should I do?

Check that the cards are not stuck together and that you are using cards compatible with Badgy (Badgy consumables are designed to optimize print quality).
Clean your printer, following the guidelines in the FAQ "How to clean the Badgy printer?"

If the problem persists, please call your Badgy reseller/distributor for assistance.

Can I print on transparent cards?

Due to the presence of INFRARED sensors which are used for the cards synchronization, the transparent or translucent card cannot be used correctly with the Badgy. 

Can I reprint on cards printed with a ribbon?

It’s not possible to print with a Badgy ribbon on a card that has already been printed with this ribbon. The ink can be applied only once on each side of the card.

In fact, printing will optimize colors only on a white background.
