Frequently Asked Questions?
Why isn't my tempids.com temporary id badge printer not printing when I hit print? Check the light in front of the Temp ID Printer to see if it is on, blinking, or off. A solid light indicates that there is power to the printer, blinking means that there are no labels in the temp id printer or they weren't fed in properly. No light means that there is no power to the printer. If the light isn't on then it may have
been inadvertently disconnected.
A solid light means you might not have the USB cable connected to the printer, computer, or both.
Lift the printer and look to the back to see if the cable is connected to the power socket. You may want to confirm the USB cable is connected at this time as well. If not connected plug it in, and if it was plugged in still follow the cable to the switching adaptor (the black brick looking item) and make sure the cable is connect to it and follow it to the surge protector or electrical outlet -- whatever the case may be. Connecting
the power will start your prior job.
Printing the student or visitor's name and picture on a sticky label seems too simple, what's the catch? There is no catch. If you're printing hard card ID badges now at your location, then you can do the same print job to our temp id badges with tempids.com's printer.
Is it difficult to set up the printer? It is easy to set up the printer. You can go from taking the printer and cables out of the box, installing the printer driver from the CD, to printing temporary ids within 15 minutes.
How does the time sensitive labels work with temporary badges? It is a patented formula utilizing two parts so when they interact the timing mechanism starts.
I have left over labels from my other provider, can I use those labels for the self expiring temps? The patented technique only works in concert with both unique labels. I have shown several customers by using the timing sticker and using one of the labels from the other provider and found out that a week later nothing had happened. You need both unique parts of the self expiring badges to work.
