designs compact and lightweight printers to reduce CO2 emissions from transportation and packaging,
reduces the power consumption of its printers (ErP Directive 2009) through a very economical hibernation mode.
Gain time and improve your productivity
Primacy is perfect for printing large runs because it personalizes color cards in record time: up to 225 cards per hour for single-sided printing and 140 cards per hour for dual-sided. You save time and increase productivity.
Primacy printers feature 300 dpi photographic resolution and edge to edge printing for optimum print quality. Your cards convey a professional image of your organization.
Ease of use
The card feeder and output tray are directly accessible on the front of the printer, so you can check the cards as they come out.
With the Evolis Premium Suite® software you can receive notifications and easily control the printer from your computer.
Evolis High Trust® ribbons are easy to install and automatically recognized by the printer.
The large capacity card feeder and output tray hold 100 cards - so you don’t have to refill the printer as often. Primacy offers high capacity in a compact footprint.
A long term vision
You can upgrade your printer according to your needs by adding magnetic stripe, contact or contactless chip encoders. The printer can be factory configured for dual sided printing, or the function can be activated on site.
Primacy benefits from Evolis’ experience and proven quality control to ensure optimum performance and perfect results. We back up our strong commitment to quality with our 3-year standard warranty.
