Jomablue Event Kit is a self contained kit used for badge or badgeless event check-in.
A Jomablue provided Event Kit contains:
- 2 iPad Mini - with Jomablue Lite application loaded
- 2 Battery powered printers
- Cellular connectivity (Global Roaming available on request)
The kit is designed to work without any dependence on the venue, which means no requests for venue internet connections or power sources are required. Simply turn on and get started.
The Jomablue Lite app has the option to provide event check-in either with print paper badges (stickers) or work in badgeless check-in mode.
Jomablue Lite is designed to work in conjunction with Jomablue Portal on the Web. We recommend having a laptop nearby for edits and adding new people, as it's generally easier via the web than using the iPad keyboard.
The Event Kit is contained inside a hard exterior case. It is approximately the size of standard carry on luggage.
Case dimensions: 56 x 31 x 24cm.
Weight: 12.5 KG
Both the iPads and the printers run on battery power and will last at least 10 hours of moderate use.
We recommend charging both iPads and Printers in the evenings before the next event day.
Currently Jomablue Lite supports the following paper types. These paper types are available from Officeworks (Australia), Staples (USA) and any other good stationery stores:
- DK-22205 (White Paper Sticker) | Officeworks: https://bit.ly/2z94Tym
- DK-22113 (Transparent Paper Sticker) | Officeworks: https://bit.ly/2AyzF5I
Using this paper stock the Jomablue Lite app supports badge sizes of:
- Type A: 62mm W x 30mm H
- Type B: 62mm W x 45mm H
- Type C: 62mm W x 55mm H
- Type D: 62mm W x 65mm H
The labels are cut to size by the printer itself, and catering for 2mm bleed is suggested when designing any backing cards for use with the stickers.
Please note: the paper rolls that come with a brand new QL-820NWB printer are not compatible with Jomablue Lite and the Event Kit - you will not be able to use these rolls, and will need to obtain the aforementioned DK-22205 or DK-22113 rolls.
The Event Kit uses 4G Cellular data to operate - so it is important to ensure the data plans for your SIM cards has sufficient data.
For a typical event with 250 pax, the Event Kit will use approximately 25 megabytes of data (across 2 iPads).

Reporting and Insights
Jomablue Lite includes a simple, real-time event check-In counter. For all other insights and reporting, please log in to Jomablue Portal. Checking people in to a badgeless event still counts as a "badge print" - therefore all insights and reports in Jomablue will reflect 'Badge Printed' as their badgeless checked-in time.
Badge Layout Configuration
Badge layouts and configured per iPad - so please ensure you copy any changes to all in-use iPads.
Under Settings > Badge Layout.
Here you can select which order the fields appear in, choose to hide some fields and Bold certain elements.
Available fields for printing on the badge are:
- First Name
- Last Name
- Job Title
All fields are automatically resized to fit on the badge. In other words, if a name is too long to fit on the badge, the font will be scaled down until the entire name fits within the badge width.
