How to create a badge template (Badge Editor)

The Visitor Badge allows to print out a badge when you check in a visitor.

It is only possible to print a badge once the badge option has been activated on Visitors Settings menu by a supervisor.

The badge option needs to be activated per each category of Visitor and you can personalize the badge template per each category.


Printing a badge for Visitor is only possible via the POST license (computer certificate). Please note that if Badge options are activated, you won’t be able to see that category of visitors on M-POST.


1 – Log in GuardTek portal using a Supervisor ID type

2 – Select Settings > Visitors Check In Registration Form

3 – All your existing Visitors Category will display here.  Per each desired Visitor category click on the   under the Badge column.


This will prompt you to a new page, “Edit Badge”, that contains basic pre-set fields that you can remove, edit or modify layout.


The default template shows in the middle of the page:

Under Badge Settings, you can select from 4 badge size options:

  • Custom Size (92 mm x 61 mm)
