It's wireless, it's auto-magical!
First, make sure your iPad is updated to iOS8 or greater by going to:
Settings → General → About → Version
Next, you need to get the AirPrint compatible printer on the same Network as the iPad. Each printer is configured differently, so check the included guide or online for more info.
To check that the iPad is on the network, make sure Wifi is enabled and the network name is shown in:
Settings → Wifi
Note that a cellular iPad will need to be connected to a Wifi connection in order to AirPrint.
Once everything is ready, open the Secret Settings page, enable Badge Printing, and select your AirPrint Printer. Badges will automatically begin printing when a guest signs in.
