The Genea Badge Printing Suite allows admins to setup badge templates and types which can be printed any user with access to Genea User Management. The process to print badges consists of four major steps. The first two steps are for admins only. The last two steps can be carried out by any user with access to Genea User Management.

  1. Create or use an existing badge template (Global and location admins only)

  2. Connect badge template with a badge type (Global and location admins only)

  3. Assign the badge type to any user while creating credentials

  4. Setup badge printer and print badges

You should be able to use any printer to print badges. We have tested the badges on HID badge printers. If you are using any other brand printers and you find difficulties in printing the badge, please reach us out at acsupport@getgenea.com for assistance.
