Port/Connection

Badgy printer uses a USB port.

Badgy printer is compatible from USB 1.0 to USB 3.0.

In case of driver installation issue; please contact your Badgy reseller/distributor or contact us.

Ribbons

Badgy printers use a printing ribbon (supplied) which consists of series of 5 panels. To print a specific color on the card, the printer successively superimposes the first 3 layers (yellow, magenta and cyan) which together create the required shade, in photo quality. Black panels (to print text) and varnish (to protect the card) are then applied to the card.

  1. Open the printer cover.
  2. Take a new ribbon.
  3. Insert the ribbon inside the printer.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. The printer automatically recognizes the ribbon inserted.

Two ribbons are currently available for Badgy printers:

  • Color ribbon: 5 panels YMCKO 100 prints/roll
  • Monochrome ribbon (black): 500 prints/roll

YMCKO refers to a 5-panel ribbon. Each letter matches up to a color panel:

  • Y Yellow
  • M Magenta
  • C Cyan
  • K blacK
  • O Overlay

YES. In this case, it would be more cost effective to use a black ribbon.

Evolis original ribbons optimize your printer’s operation and avoid causing damage to it.

Ribbons from other suppliers are not compatible with your printer.

Their use is liable to damage your printer and voids the manufacturer’s warranty for the printer.

The warranty will be null and void. No support request will be entertained if generic ribbons have been used

Miscellaneous

No, the white margins (min is 1.35mm) from the printed cards edge are normal with the Badgy100 printer. It is not possible to reduce them completely.

This margin does not exist with Badgy200 printer.

Refer to Badgy printers differences in the Miscellaneous section of the FAQ.

Please refer to the software User Guide and watch the how-to videos.

There are three ways to find the printer serial number:

  • Print the technical test card
  • Or Look at the sticker on the back of the printer
  • Or from Badgy Print Center, double-click on the printer name to access its Properties>System details:
Badgy firmware identification via the Print Center

YES. Badgy100 and Badgy200 are equipped with a single-side printing module. To create doublesided cards, simply print your cards on one side and then reinsert them in the card feeder to print on the other side.

For more details, please visit our extended warranty page.

Troubleshooting

This may happen if some dust is present on the card surface or in the printer. The print head and the ribbon that are in contact with the card those parts have to be dust free. Make sure your cards and the ribbon are stored in a dust free environment.

Do not touch the printable surface of the cards as this could affect the print quality. You can also clean the printer and print head to improve the print quality.

If the colors on the printed card are too dark or too fade, the following points have to be checked:

  • Are the contrast/intensity values too high or too low?
Graphic settings in Badgy printing properties
  • Is the power supply an Evolis one?
  • Make sure that the Evolis power supply is not faulty. The power supply displays a green light when it operates properly.

If the issue persists even after checking these points, please contact your Evolis reseller/distributor or contact us.

If no LED light is on, including the power button, please check the following points:

  1. The power supply must be connected to a live electrical wall socket.
  2. You must use the power supply provided with your Badgy printer.
  3. Is the power supply faulty? The power supply displays a green light when it operates properly.
  4. The power supply must be suitably connected to the printer.

If you still have the same glitch even after following these points, please contact your Badgy reseller/distributor or contact us.

The User Guide provides you a clear explanation of every LED on the control panel.

This guide is available on the Badgy USB stick shipped with the printer, or, it can also be downloaded from Badgy website.
