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.
