Set up your printer

The Verkada Badge Printing solution is printer-agnostic, which means that our software is compatible with all badge printers.

  1. To properly set up your printer, ensure that the badge printer driver is correctly installed on your computer and that your browser can recognize it.

  2. Once the printer is properly installed on your computer, you will see it appear as a printer option in your browser.

Note: For double-sided printing, ensure that you have configured your printer to support this feature. You can find instructions for this in your printer manual.
