Does anyone have a way to print company ID badges? Like credit card sized
badges? I'd like to make one for work but I don't have access to a printer
that can do it.

Thanks,
Rick

What I'd suggest, if you can't find a real badge/card printer, is to get
some inkjet-printable shrinkydink film (should be available at craft
stores). You print at an enlarged scale -- I can't remember the proportions
offhand -- and then cut it out and bake. There's a bit of yellowing, so you
have to plan for that.

I used this stuff for some key chain things a few years back, and the
shrink really concentrates the colors.

Taper.

It's possibly already at the shop, but I had a badge-sized laminator
with badge-sized pouches.
