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.

Alan M was a fab help! Quick to help and even called me back when we were cut off due to a power cut on my end! Called him back the following week and he remembered me and the problem i was having. Thanks Alan!!

Customer service were very patient and helpful when communicating with me to figure out the problem with the machine! Thank you for the repair, printer works again! It did take a little longer than expected to get it back, about three weeks instead of two.
