Instant issuance of personalized payment cards

Privelio from Evolis is a system capable of instantly issuing credit and debit cards from pre-printed or blank cards.

Compliant with the international security guidelines for the instant issuance of payment cards in bank branches:

  • The patented Kineclipse® process masks any residual sensitive card holder data left on the printing ribbon,
  • Electromechanical locking system prevents access to the cards, ribbon, and internal parts of the machine
  • The Evolis Mosaic SDK and the embedded PC card allow secure communication with existing information systems.

Quality and reliability

From complete printing of cards in color to monochrome personalization of pre-printed cards, Evolis solutions produce a high-resolution graphic finish in just a couple of seconds.

Privelio provides dedicated encoding features for full payment card personalization (magnetic stripe, EMV contact and contactless chips).


Reinforced security

Electromechanical locking system

Personalization ribbons, blank card stocks and rejected cards are all secure through the electromechanical locking system (with single or double access control) of Privelio.

Masking process of any residual sensitive card holder data left on the printing ribbon

Patented Kineclipse® innovation:

  • masks the residual data left on the printing ribbon after the cards have been printed,
  • Removes the need for destructing printing ribbons, no sensitive data can be compromised, event in case of theft attempt of the printing ribbons and facilitates their disposal.

Secure communication of banking data

The built-in PC card of Privelio systems makes the flow of card personalization data inaccessible to ill-intentioned individuals.
