Print from an iPad to any Printer Connected to PrintNode

Aside from printing black and white badges through a thermal printer, you can install PrintNode on your desktop to print from other compatible printers, including printers with colored ink and printers using PVC!

Important Notes:

  • If you’re using this feature, it’s important that you contact your Account Manager to arrange a meeting with our product team a few weeks before the event to test PrintNode with your computer and printer. Testing will allows us to determine if the devices are compatible and if additional drivers / installers are needed.

  • This process only allows you to print if the badge printing is triggered through the iPad Admin App.

  • PrintNode should be installed on a computer, not on the iPad.

  • For best results, install PrintNode on a macOS device.

  • To make this work, the printer should be connected to the same network as the computer, or the printer should be directly connected to the computer.

  • Please ensure you install the latest app version to see the latest updates.

  • Please ensure to check the list of compatible printers and test it before the event as some settings may need to be adjusted.

Install PrintNode to Your Computer

Add the PrintNode API Key to the Event

  • Login to your PrintNode account

  • Click API Keys

  • Enter your password and click Next

  • Enter your API key description and click Create

  • Copy the generated API Key

  • In your event's admin console, go to Settings > General Settings

  • Turn on the toggle to "Enable Print Node"

  • Paste the API Key

Select the Printer in the iPad Admin App

  • Login to the iPad Admin App

  • Select the Event

  • You should see "Print node is available" at the bottom of the page.

  • Select the printer from the bottom menu.

That's it! Any iPad connected to the printer using PrintNode can trigger the badge to print, even if the iPad is in a different country!
