Written By john.fieldsend

Some badging applications send barcodes as a bitmap image and not a true type font.

To workaround this follow the steps below.

Shut down your badging application.

  1. Go to the start menu
  2. Devices and printers
  3. Right click the printer icon and select printing preferences
  4. Image tab > advanced > change the color correction to Gamma 1
  5. Then go to the card front tab
  6. click the black options button
  7. uncheck pictures use YMC only.

Click OK all the way out.

Reopen your badging application and print.

What customers say about our support...

We ended up not getting the piece repaired due to the cost but support was great about getting back to me which I appreciate.

Thank you so much! The ID printer is working great and we really appreciate the honesty of your technicians! We could have easily been billed for repairs that weren't done, as our printer is no longer under warranty, but you didn\'t charge us at all. The technician superstar told me that it was a simple loose wire, which he reattached, and they shipped it back at no charge. Thank you!

It was strange what my problem was but support was quick to isolate it with a few pics sent to them. Very happy with the support.

Continuously followed up with Technical Support for status updates on badge printer. Responses were timely, but could have been elaborated better. Printer did return in excellent condition and overall, issues were resolved.
