Event badge printing with Matica XL8300 Matica’s new XL8300 uses re-transfer technology to provide superior printing on non-standard, wide-format cards.

The model extends Matica’s portfolio to meet the rising demands of event management.

Concert organizers, professional sports leagues, and even large marketing agencies can rely on XL8300 to express the meaning behind their event. Oversized cards can be used as event passes or tickets as well as nametags to identify attendees, VIPs or staff. Lastly, they can be used to facilitate security and access control.

An output of up to 128 cards per hour in the monochrome mode and up to 85 cards per hour in full color makes this model eradicate concerns about not meeting upcoming deadlines. The sleek design and compact size make this model perfect for on-site event badge printing in even the most limited work area. You can produce event badges and oversized cards that best reflect your brand’s image.

An expertly made event badge delivers a powerful first impression of your brand and contributes to the overall experience for your guests, whether the event is a for sports, a convention, a conference or a concert! The oversized backing allows for plenty of room for any and all information and design elements. This is the biggest printable area you can find on the market in a printing solution of this type, and the high-quality 300 dpi printing ensures that every bit of the design looks great and serves the function you intend it to.

Using the same retransfer printing technology as its best-selling XID8300 model, the XL8300 delivers the same sharp printing to the custom-sized badge format, including the crisp production quality characteristic of its brand. You can choose between monochrome carbon black shades or full-color printing. You are not stuck with standard PVC cards, but can opt for additional card materials, such as ABS and PET.

Manage visitor access and enhance visitor security. Large events that see your guests come and go throughout the day require a bold or color-coded oversized badge to help you identify your visitors at a glance (and help them identify each other), and to assist your staff in regulating the entrance to sitting zones or VIP events.

Event badges are also very helpful for your attendees as they make staff members easier to spot.

In addition, guests at a professional event can easily identify each other to take advantage of networking opportunities. Matica's XL8300 offers a variety of essential security features to secure its place as the premier badge printer. Some of these features are: a contactless chip encoding option when you need special security requirements, UV printing which allows for the inclusion of an invisible logo, and watermarks which protect badges against forgery.

To sum it all up, the XL8300 is an ideal choice for professional quality color printing on custom-sized cards. It accommodates your needs in event management particularly well, thanks to its output capacity and additional security features. The Matica XL8300 printer is for printing and encoding high-quality, oversized cards for security card systems, credentials, and event management.

We also carry lots of colors, including purple, green, red, teal, clear, tan, orange, cranberry, brown, yellow, grey, light blue, pink, dark blue, black, medium blue, metallic silver, metallic gold, and metallic copper.
