Talk to Kydproducts 

they do a 1 inch cutter (quite cheap) very easy to use, and all you do is use ANY colour printer and sick the dome's onto the paper and stick onto the trophy

this probably sounds crap, but honestly when you have say an order for 5 trophies it turns out very well without spending stupid money

if however your doing hundreds then by all means invest in a cutting paper needed printer

 

here is the correct link

The only problem we ever had with the ezebadge program was lining the print up with their pre-cut sticker sheets. Which is why we started using A4 adhesive photo paper, and a 25mm punch, both bought from quickdome.

 

I always print in rows of 6, starting at the bottom of the page and working my way up so there is no waste. I mark the back of the sheet with how many rows there are left and an arrow pointing to the uncut leading edge, then I know I'll put it in the printer the right way round. If the customer wants less than 6 centres then I fill up the rest of the row with stock designs. Our printer doesn't like doing the end of the page if it has less than three rows left, so again, if I don't need the last couple of rows for the order I'm printing, I fill them with stock designs or with the logos for regular club orders.

I created a ezeBadge printing template with a program called InDesign, but you could use an alternative program that allows you to place the medal/trophy centre images into placeholders that are in the correct positions for the ezeBadge stickers on each sheet. I normally include 1.5mm bleed around the outside of each centre I print (28mm diameter image), just to be on the safe side when printing to the edge of a sticker.

You ideally want a program that can adjust for the offset of the printout on your particular printer, which you can find out yourself if you print out a few sheets and get the average shift distance on the printout. I use an HP Envy 5646 and I have to offset the print about 1.5mm to the right and about 1mm up.

I just have to follow a very small checklist before I make each print, but it allows me to get the printout usually within a few 10ths of a millimetre in accuracy, rather than a mill or 2 with the ezeBadge software.

Checklist:

  1. Measure the distance from the left and top edges and re-adjust the template if needed - as this distance can vary quite a bit (about 2mm) from the sheets I've used from Trend.
  2. Make sure the ezeBadge sheet is squared up with the edge of the paper guide, and is inserted a far as possible into the paper feed tray.

Test your template after you've made it. Just place a thin circle outline around each sticker centre on the template which is a couple of mm larger than the 25mm stickers.That way if the print out is slightly out you can adjust the template and you haven't (hopefully) printed (i.e. wasted) onto any of the stickers themselves.
