Instant issuance of embossed financial cards

Privelio XT from Evolis is capable of instantly issuing embossed credit and debit cards. Its multiple card feeders enable the personalization of various preprinted designs within a unique system. With Privelio XT, card issuance is ultra secure and complies with the security guidelines of international banking standards:

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


Reinforced security
