Evolis Primacy ID Card Printer Description

Evolis Primacy Single-Sided Photo ID System

Powerful, Fast Printing

  • Do you print more than 30,000 ID cards a year?
  • Do you need a powerful printer that produces large batches of high-quality, durable, and secure ID cards - fast?
  • Do you need technology in the form of magnetic stripe, contact chip, or RFID contactless chip on your cards?

Then the Evolis Primacy is the right ID card printer for you. One of the fastest printers on the market, it is the go-to printer for thousands of organizations with large-scale, secure, card issuance programs.

Ideal for: Mid to large-size corporations, schools, government agencies, and health-care facilities.

Why you’ll love it: Super-fast. High print quality. Cost-effective consumables. Optional encoding. Excellent optional security features including holographic laminating and varnishes.

Typical Applications: Driver’s licenses, security cards, student IDs, employee IDs, access-control badges, payment cards, membership cards, loyalty cards, gift cards.

Enjoy Fast, Efficient Output

The Evolis Primacy prints small or large runs in record time: up to 225 full-color cards and up to 1,000 monochrome cards in a single hour. And you can print a large batch without constantly monitoring your printer—the card feeder and output hopper each hold 100 cards. Plus, defective cards just slide out the back of the printer into the reject box without interrupting the print job.

Just set the production run, load the cards, and then move on to your next task as the Primacy completes the print job. 

Fits Perfectly into Any Office Setting

The Primacy blends right into your office with its lightweight (under 9 lbs) and compact size (9.72” x 8.07” x 14.99”) and sleek, modern design (including two exterior color options). As a space-saving feature and for easy access to cards, the input and output hoppers are both located on the front of the machine. With a whisper sound level of 48 decibels, it is one of the quietest printers in the world.

Easy, Secure Printing  

Save your head space for things that really need your attention. The Primacy alerts you of print status on an easy to read LED display. The Evolis Premium Suite Software? displays cleaning, card and ribbon alerts as well as printer status directly on your computer. And Evolis High Trust? easy-load ribbons are recognized by the printer, with no configuring necessary on your part.

For your peace of mind during and between print jobs, the printer features a Kensington-style lock slot and optional locking hoppers.

Upgrade Easily as Your Needs Grow

The Primacy is one of the most popular ID printers on the market today—and for good reason. Its modular design allows for multiple upgrades that can be done at the factory or in your office—allowing for a wide range of applications. Choose now from the following options—or upgrade easily as your needs evolve!

Optional Dual-Sided Printing

The Evolis Primacy can be upgraded from a single to dual sided printer within a few seconds—literally. SImply purchase an activation key—no hardware or software necessary.

Optional Encoding

Magnetic stripe, contact chip and contactless chip encoding are all available as factory or on-site upgrades. 

Optional Lamination

Choose lamination to add a layer of security and durability to your cards. When you laminate your cards, you end up saving money since you don’t need to issue cards as frequently. You also protect the cards from forgery, especially when you use hologram laminating.

Optional Locking Cartridges

Protect your blank cards, printed cards and other consumables with optional locking cartridges.

Optional Wifi Connection

The Primacy comes standard with USB and Ethernet connection, so you can print from multiple computers to one single printer. It also features optional Wifi connection, so you can print from anywhere, anytime. 

Choice of Ribbons

Which ribbon option is best for you? Choose ribbon saver for monochrome printing, cutting your costs significantly, and half-panel ribbon for cheaper and faster dual-sided printing. Add a varnish ribbon with continuous or registered holograms for added security and durability.

Logitech C270 HD Webcam

Take High-Resolution Snapshots

The Logitech webcam features Logitech Fluid Crystal™ Technology—enabling it to capture crisp, clear photos that transfer effortlessly onto your photo ID badges. Simply plug it into your computer’s USB port and it is ready for use.

Tech Support

Joseph proved tremendously helpful in resolving a series of significant challenges I was experiencing with our new printer. His patience and clear instruction made the process so much less stressful. Now we have a fantastic badge printer, and we could not have done it without Joseph's excellent support!

Mechanical Error Out of the Box

This ID printer did not work out of the box. I assumed it was user error, but after speaking to both Bodno support and manufacturer support, it was concluded that there is an error with the machine. Extremely disappointing, especially after the money spent on it. Whoever I spoke to on the customer support, not technical support, was rude and impatient; however, technical support was great.
