Using Custom Layouts, Configuring Name Badges and using the Event Print Utility

We recommend that only advanced users update options on the Layouts Edit Tab. Ask us before you change anything as this could adversely affect the e-tickets your attendees receive when signing up.

When you have an event that requires a customized e-ticket or a name badge, Brushfire uses the Layout Edit Tab to configure the layout or appearance of your default e-ticket or name badge.


Because Layouts utilize JSON code, you may need to consult with a Brushfire Client Support Specialist to help you update this. 

To learn more about customization options for e-tickets, please visit our help article on event branding.

One of the really useful functions or customizable ticket and name badge layouts, is that you can add fields to an attendee's e-ticket indicating a shirt size they indicated in their sign up form, for example, or a meal option they chose when signing up.

Printing and preview options are available on the right hand side of your Attendees Manage Dashboard. 




You can also preview a specific attendee's customized e-ticket or name badge by finding an attendee in your Attendee Dashboard and clicking on the blue "manage" button and selecting the View/Print options. 


Alternatively, you can print e-tickets or name badges from your event's quick access print utility. 


Printing Name Badges via The Print Utility

Access the Print utility on your event's manage page.


Each event has a print utility that can be used to create print jobs that use custom layouts. This is separate from the print options available on your orders page to print will call tickets and generic mailing labels.  Read more about that here.

By default events don't come with name badges configured. We can add a custom badge layout to your event. Contact us via the link at the bottom of thus help article with the badge sheet template specifications, badge sizing and data from your attendee fields you wish to display on your name badges. 

In the print utility, you can use filters to print badges in batches, based on filter criteria. You can save print jobs based on these filters and then mark badges or tickets as printed and then come back to print unprinted badges if you need to keep track of your printing.

When configuring badges we can set badges to print in alphabetical order if needed. 

Always print a test page to ensure that your badge alignment is correct and allow appropriate time in case any adjustments need to be made. 

To print all your badges, apply a blank filter, as in the screenshot below and select View Name Badges to preview your badges.
