ELYPSO: the versatile card system for front-desk application


Evolis, France, 18 April 2013. Evolis, a market leader in personalization solutions for plastic cards, introduces ELYPSO, a versatile and powerful front-desk card printer, ideal for instant personalization of smart cards!


Elypso is a compact, yet powerful desktop card printer which offers all the features required for instant issuance in one single model: manual card feeding, front-desk operations, dual-sided printing and flexible encoding (magnetic stripe, contact & contactless chip card).

Leveraging the success enjoyed by its range of desktop printers, Evolis designed Elypso , an advanced printer that matches the top-notch performances of Primacy with the compact footprint of Zenius.

This new solution, unique in the marketplace, supports every requirement in delivering personalized cards over the counter, whatever the application: payment cards, transportation passes, consumers’ loyalty cards…


Instant issuance made user-friendly, with top performances and reliability

Elypso comes with the latest software breakthroughs engineered by Evolis. This printer is monitored from the user’s interface and through pop-up alerts on the printing status. Cards can be loaded at the printer’s front end, while the printing ribbon, available in a cassette format, can be easily dropped into its slot in the printer.

Elypso is a speedy card printer: delivering a personalized card in color takes just 20 seconds. This card printer is flexible enough to meet any requirement in encoding, from magnetic stripes to contact or contactless smart cards. Encoding features can be combined in the same printer, as encoder upgrades are carried out independently. By linking these add-on encoding modules to the internal USB hub, any qualified person can integrate an encoder, on-site, without the hassle of having to ship the printer to an Evolis center for the upgrade.


Elypso, an eco-designed printer

Just like the other desktop printers from Evolis, Elypso fully leverages the eco-design approach implemented by Evolis. Users benefit for example from reduced power consumption, while the compact Elypso is also a lightweight printer (2.95 kg – 6.5 Lbs).
