This article walks through the steps to print name badges for event registrants, using the Avery 5392 name badge paper. There are quick links at the bottom in the Related Recourses section that link to other mail-merge tasks you can perform in your Trail Blazer database, as well as the other event related articles & videos.
Tip: If you use some other type of paper to print name badges/cards, you take advantage of the export utility to pull out just data that you need (title, name, address, etc.) to a spreadsheet, and run the merge via Microsoft Word & Excel.
Navigate to your Contacts (Donors/Voters) list.
Under the Event tab run a search query for the registrants who have a response of ‘yes’ for the event you want to print name badges for. In this example I used an event called “2016 Celebrity Golf Tournament” which produced 108 contacts.
Click the [Reports] button in the bottom-right, select your name badge preferences, and click [OK]. As of the time this article was written, there are two options:
- Name Badge – First + Last Names + Employer (Use Avery 5392)
- Name Badge – Fist + Last Names (Use Avery 5392)
I chose the second option (First and Last Name).
From the print screen you can adjust margins, paper type, etc. Here’s my example print preview of my finished name badges:
Click [Print] when you’re all finished, select the printer to print to, and click [Print] again. I would suggest running a test print as well in case it doesn’t line up for some reason.
Please call our Live Support if you have any trouble with this, or anything else for that matter.
