Extremely fast, powerful and efficient

The Primacy printer is extremely fast, powerful and efficient. Using advanced encoding technologies, this desktop printer is the best solution for issuing personalized cards, from the most simple to the most secure.

Primacy is available in single and dual-sided versions and is the ideal choice for printing and encoding cards in medium and large runs.

Primacy is ideal for instant issuance of:

 

Eco-design

As part of our eco-design system aimed at reducing the environmental footprint of our products, Evolis:

  • uses recycled materials in the manufacture of our printers and consumables whenever possible,
  • 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

 

Enhanced 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.

 

High capacity

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.

 

Professional printing

Primacy features 300 dpi photographic resolution and edge to edge printing for optimum print quality.
Thanks to an enhanced graphical processing, you get a faithful depiction of the images in high definition and more precise monochrome texts.

 

Ease of use

  • The card feeder and hopper can be directly accessed on the front, so you can keep an eye on the printing.
  • The Evolis High Trust® print ribbons are easy to install and automatically recognized by the printer.
  • The printer adapts to how you use it:
    • From your computer: the Evolis Premium Suite® software lets you easily control the printer thanks to notifications on your screen.
    • From the printer: you can interact with the printer in real time using the optional LCD screen. This is ideal for over-the-counter uses (bank cards, travel cards, casino cards, loyalty cards, gift cards, and many more).

Lasting investment

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.
