Badge Types 


Full Color Badges

Full-color badges give your event a professional look and each badge prints in just a few seconds. This is what makes them our most popular badge. Color badges also give our clients great flexibility in designing their badge artwork. You can even include logos on each badge which is great for generating additional sponsorship revenue.

Need reception or event tickets too? These badges are a perfect solution. The no-tear badge stock will do just the trick. In fact, these badges are so durable that no holder is required. You can still highlight various attendee types with a color bar at the bottom of each badge. See samples below. Size options are as follows: 4"x3", 4"x4.5", 4"x5", 4"x6". 

The 4"x4.5" is our standard badge for color printing. This badge includes 2 slots and one slit at the top. 

The 4"x5" badge consists of 2 slots and 1 slit at the top and bottom of the badge, which totals 4 slots and 2 slits. This badge is great for shows that include multiple tickets associated with each badge.

You can also get badges with no slots or slits in the 4"x4.5" and 4"x6"

*The 4"x3" size does not come with slots, notches or a slit. It will be a straight edged badge, similar to the Direct Thermal badges.


Butterfly Badges

Butterfly badges are printed on folding paper with the front and back of the badge printed at the same time. The benefit of these badges is your design can extend over the slots of the badge and be printed edge to edge in full, vibrant colors. Butterfly badges are printed and folded over to produce a single badge quickly and easily. These badges are sturdy and do not require a badge holder and can be recycled after the event. 

Keep your attendees informed by using the back of the badge for schedules, wifi information, and event locations and more at the time of printing.

Butterfly badges are approximately 4x11" when printed and 4”x 5.5” when folded.

Looking for a way to add extra revenue?ETG-badgevertising

Use butterfly badges to offer advertisement and sponsorship space that can be printed directly on the badge. Take advantage of your attendee data by personalizing the graphics and/or ads to each attendee with what we like to call custom “badge-vertisements”. A bonus to badge-vertising is that you can use more than 1 advertisement on each badge based on demographics or other information.

Direct Thermal

Thermal badges are pre-printed with your artwork in the header. Attendee information is then printed in black as attendees arrive at registration. Each badge prints in just a few seconds. These badges do not come with slots and are best used with badge holders.

Direct Thermal badges are available in three sizes: 4"x3", 4"x4" and 4"x6".
