    Can the settings be changed on the label? The font seems to be to large and all information is not being included on the label and is taking up more than one label.

    Is there a way to have the system assign the tag numbers on plastic tags we already have printed as the child is being checked in?

    The tags have the layout shown below

    Wondering if Breeze would consider supporting other name tag sizes available with the DYMO?

    Hi there! 

    The dimensions of the graphic for the logo on the name tags is 182 x 122. To optimize name tag spacing, use the larger text areas for information that takes up more space, such as "Parents Cell Numbers". Use the smaller text areas for fields such as "Date" or "4 Digit Code."You can add allergies to the name tag by adding "allergies" as a custom profile field and then selecting that field from the drop-down in one of the custom name tag fields.

    Hey debraatlandmark - The name tag should automatically resize everything to fit into the space provided.  See the area on Notes on Custom Name Tag Spacing  to get an idea of the different sizing for the customizable areas of the name tags. 

    Hey niyijr - The printer will only print on the Dymo label name tags, so you won't be able to print directly onto plastic name tags. You can print the tag name on the dymo paper labels, though. 

    Hey administration - right now the only supported labels are the ones listed here: Supported Labels.  This is so that we can be sure to include all the custom printing areas on the name tags and format it all to the correct sizing. 

    Hey inezmartinezjr - You can create a custom profile field (Adding or Changing Profile Fields) with allergies where you'll add in all the allergies, and then you'll use the dropdown customize menu when customize the name tags to include that profile field.

    I can't get the program to "save changes."  I'd like to use the family tag option, but it keeps going back to the parent tag.  How can I get it to save?  Also, We have it set up to print only name tags for our preschool classes, not our children's classes.  But alas, the system seems to think our children need name tags, too.  We've checked and saved and checked and unchecked and saved and saved and saved, and we can't get the system to do what we need :-(

    What do we need to do?

    Also, it would be wonderful if we had an option at check in for which sessions parents/kiddos are attending.  We have two sessions with small groups and worship for adults at both sessions.  Some families come for one session and some come for two.  If families arrive for the first and plan to stay for the second, that would be awesome to know!

    Thanks for your wisdom,

    Hi Hoping you can help me with a few questions regarding labels.

    1. I labeled the adults as head of households and spouses but their names are printing out as child names on the family tag. Is there a way to not get them to print on the family tag?

    2. How do I print volunteer name tags to look different from a child tag. Right now everyone gets the same type tag as if they are all children and I want the volunteers names to stand out larger for the children and parents to read.

    3. Is there a way to view what the badge looks like before it prints. We are wasting a lot of labels testing and the labels aren't cheap :(.

    4. Is it possible to add a field that doesn't show up in the selection to the parent badge or the family badge? When parents pick up their children the volunteers have to ask them what class are they in so they know where to go and retrieve the child. If the Tag name or grade could be printed on the family badge somehow that would tell the volunteer which classroom to get the child from!

    Thank you for your help!

    Hi there, hope you can assist.

     

    Why does the parent tag have 2 identical sides? Are you supposed to cut the tag in half and give one to the parent and one to the child? 

    Also, do you print both a Name Tag and a Parent Tag then, or just a Parent Tag? 

    Many thanks!

    Hi there! 

    You can cut the tag in half for different purposes-to place on a bag-or give one to both parents or guardians. We print both a name tag and a parent tag. That way, the child has a tag with a three digit code and the parent has a tag with that same code. When they get picked up, the parent gives us the tag that matches the child tag. :) Hope this is helpful!
