Setting up Dual Sided Printing in Standard

By default AlphaCard School ID Standard will print singled sided templates, but you can add a second page to any of your designs.

Setting up Dual-Sided Printing

Please Note: Printing a dual sided badge design requires your printer be capable of printing dual-sided cards. If you are unsure, please contact your point of purchase for your printer.

  1. Go to the configuration tab
  2. Either Click Template Designer if you want to edit your current design, or on New Badge if you are creating a new dual-sided badge.
  3. Once the Template Designer launches, under the home tab, click on layout page.
  4. This should automatically set the new page as the back of the design, but you can check this at any time. With the new page selected, click on the Page Layout tab. The boxes for Printable and Backside should both be checked.
  5. For the front of the badge, only the printable box should be checked.
  6. Once both of these settings are correct, AlphaCard School ID will send the information to the printer as a dual-sided document. Depending on your printer brand, additional action may be needed to enable dual-sided printing within the printer itself. If you need help, please contact either the purchase point of the printer, or the manufacturer of the printer to enable this setting.

If you continue to experience problems, or have questions about your AlphaCard School ID software, please contact AlphaCard technical support.
