Thank you for choosing the ID Card Designer BadgeMaker, this post explains more about using the text tool and dynamic fields when creating your card design.
After creating the first steps of a card design, like the background and adding a logo it is time to add text to your card design.
You can make use of static text and or dynamic text. When creating a card design that does not contain any personalized data, like for example a gift card, static text can be used. When creating an ID card for your employees, dynamic data is needed for your card design. Typically, Dynamic data will change for every card printed.
In this example we create a design for an employee card, that displays the employee name, function, number and the expiry date of the card. The card design needs to be printed for thirty different employees.
You do not have to design thirty card designs and type in every card holders’ data by hand, we create dynamic fields so we can connect these dynamic fields to a data column that contains thirty names for example.
