That will require some advanced customization of the ticketing templates. Here are the basic steps:

1) Create a new folder in /wp-content/uploads/espresso/ and name it tickets
2) Copy over the entire /templates folder from the ticketing add-on into this new folder. So it will look like this: /wp-content/uploads/espresso/tickets/templates
3) Make a duplicate of the index.php file in this new folder and rename it to something like badge.php
4a) Modify badge.php using the template short tags listed in the ticketing documentation.
4b) Create and modify a new css stylesheet if need be
5) Create a new ticket template and select this new template/stylesheet combo in the ticket template manager
6) Select this ticket template for the events you want name badges for in the “Custom Tickets” box of the event editor.
