Thank you for choosing the card print software: BadgeMaker. This post shows how to import cardholders’ data into your project in BadgeMaker Identity. Records are single data rows that contain information of one person. There is a button for adding and deleting a single record manually. To add multiple records, you can choose to import an Excel file.

First step is open a existing project in BadgeMaker Identity.
