Name Tag Printer Guide
All our printers are ready to ship today,
come with warranties and are backed
by pc/nametag® technical support.
On-site printers make last-minute name tags look first class.

Up till now, late registrants received name tags with "last minute" written all over them. Not a great way to greet attendees. They'll be much happier with the professional name tags produced by our on-site printers.

With your laptop computer and our clear instructions, any of our on-site options will print name tags without slowing down your registration line. And they can print one name tag at a time or badges for your whole list of names.

Options. We have printers for three types of name tags: adhesive labels, reusable ID cards and paper inserts in three sizes.

Convenience. Many of our printers are in-stock and ship the same day you order.

Speed. Our Datamax On-Site Printer prints name tags as fast as one per second!

Peace of Mind. Every printer comes with a warranty and is backed by online information and pc/nametag® technical support.

Name Tag Printer Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a computer to use these printers?

All our printers must be connected to a computer to operate, with one exception: the Datamax Pro On-Site Printer (with an optional battery pack it even lets you operate it without a power cord). For all our other printers, using a laptop computer makes the printer portable and lets you print on your registration table.

Do any of your printers allow me to print in color?

Yes! Our Primera Portable Color Printer and Epson Color Printer allow you to produce beautiful color name tags, while our Evolis Primacy ID Printer, Evolis Zenius ID Printer and Fargo DTC4500 ID Printer all allow you to print Full-Color, Hi-Def ID Cards.

Can I network any of the printers with multiple computers?

Yes. Just like most office printers, the Datamax On-Site Printer, Evolis Primacy ID Printer and Fargo DTC4500 ID Printer will print data sent from a number of different computers.

Will I need any additional software besides what is included with the printers?

Since our paper-stock name tags printers are compatible with popular text software, you should not need to buy additional software. We also provide Mail-Merge instructions for text software.

Our ID card (CR80) Printers include basic software to help you create great-looking ID cards right out of the box.
