Plastic card printers from Evolis for the first time at DRUPA

Booth C07, hall 4

Angers, 18 May 2016 - Evolis, the world leader in personalization and desktop printing systems of plastic cards, will showcase for the first time at Drupa, a comprehensive range of card printers that meet the needs of the printing industry.


Plastic cards are everywhere, and fulfill many needs, such as customer loyalty cards, gift cards, membership cards, school cards, or corporate access badges. Adding plastic card printers to their print fleet, helps printing professionals to stand out from their competitors and generate additional revenue.

Evolis systems let printing professionals create and print every type of card in a few clicks using the models included in the software, or from graphic elements provided by their customers. This solution offers a high quality service that can be completely customized according to the requirements of the customer, going beyond a simple print job that some websites propose.

All Evolis systems combine the same advantages:

  • they are designed to be adaptable to all sectors (businesses, clubs and associations, schools, stores, or local  authorities).
  • they represent a moderate investment.
  • they only require quick training as they are easy to use.



Evolis printing systems offer customized graphics such as backgrounds, logos, photos, texts, and barcodes. The software cardPresso (for creating cards) is included with all printers and includes badge templates and internal databases.

In addition, several systems from Evolis include data encoding (magnetic strip, smartcard, with or without contact) as well as security features such as lamination, standard or personalized holograms.
They enable printing professionals to propose a unique service of creating both esthetic and secure access badges for small and medium-sized companies who don’t have the need or the ability to invest in their own badge issuance system.


The following card issuance systems will be showcased at DRUPA:

BADGY - The all-in-one affordable printing solution

  • An economical and complete solution with a free-of-charge template library.
  • Single-sided, edge-to-edge printing
  • No encoding option

PRIMACY – The compact multi-usage printer

  • A record printing speed: up to 225 single-sided color cards per hour.
  • 300 dpi definition for a faithful reproduction of the graphic elements, single or double-sided, edge-to-edge printing.
  • Easy to use: quick installation and automatic ribbon recognition

AVANSIA – The retransfer printer for high definition cards

  • High definition of 600 dpi for flawless reproduction of images, text, micro-text and watermarks, single or double-sided.
  • Printing on all card types with a credit card format across the whole surface of the card.
  • Large capacity feeder and hopper, as well as printing ribbons, for automatic batch printing of 250 cards.
  • A specific YMCFK ribbon for UV printing adds additional security to cards

QUANTUM – The semi-industrial solution for large-scale batch printing

  • The combination of an easy-to-use office printer with the power of an industrial machine.
  • 300 dpi definition, single or double-sided, edge-to-edge printing.

Evolis also offers a range of consumables with its  card printers. This diverse range of printing ribbons enables a bold choice of designs at an affordable price: color, monochrome, silver or gold, signature panel, scratch ink, patches and varnish, with or without holograms

In order to maintain and protect the cards, Evolis offers numerous accessories, customizable on demand such as badge holders, clips, badge reels, lanyards or cutting tools.

“We see a need for printing professionals and designers to offer additional products and services which helps them to grow their revenue. It’s our first time at DRUPA and we see it as a great opportunity to interact with the key players within this market,” explains Christophe Peraudeau, marketing director at Evolis.  

Evolis printing systems are available in 140 countries through a network of specialized distributors.
