How to print attendee name badges

Eventbrite LogoUpdated by Cortney N

Attendee name badges are a great way to personalize the attendee experience. You can generate name badges with Eventbrite or use "eblink{Custom Badges=>https://www.eventbrite.ie/apps/conference-badges/}", mail merges, and more. To get started, go to your event's Manage page. Then select "Name Badges" (under Manage Attendees).

TIP: Need to edit or update an attendee's information before you generate name badges? eblink{Learn how to edit attendee information=>https://www.eventbrite.ie/support/articleredirect?anum=27564}.

NOTE: Be sure that your event is eblink{collecting information from each attendee=>https://www.eventbrite.ie/support/articleredirect?anum=3262} so a unique badge is created based on the attendee, and not only the ticket buyer.
