Evolis Primacy Black Ediion

On the occasion of its 15th Anniversary, Evolis introduces the Primacy Black Edition, a limited version of its flagship card printer.


Angers (France), October 15th, 2015 - Evolis, the worldwide leader in printing and personalization solutions for plastic cards, introduces the Primacy Black Edition, a revamped version of its flagship printer, Primacy. This stunner is being launched to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Evolis.

Primacy, Evolis’ blockbuster which has recently been loaded with new features, has outperformed all competition in the plastic card printers market, barely three years after its debut.



With a production of only 2,000 units, this limited edition capitalizes on the Primacy Duplex version, designed for double-sided card printing. The new printer model boasts of a very gracefully crafted body in red and glossy black, along with carbon effects that dress up both sides. These finishing touches are very out-of-the-ordinary features for a card printer, serving as the trump card for sleekness and elegancy and making this machine a truly high-end printer.

Besides its paying tribute to Evolis’ 15th anniversary, this limited edition evidences the flexibility and responsiveness of Evolis’ advanced facilities and resources for production. From design, to development and production, this printer was up and running within a very short timeframe.

The Primacy Black edition is shipped with cardPresso XS Edition, a user-friendly software tool to design and personalize plastic cards, with the help on a database if required. In addition, a color (YMCKO-K) ribbon with a capacity of 200 printings is included, along with 100 blank cards.

This printer is already available for ordering from Evolis distributors, and is to be shipped out in early November.



Primacy makes all the difference, thanks to its ease of use, flexibility and ultra-fast operations. Loaded with advanced technologies, this printer supports all card printing and encoding requirements for medium to large runs. With the recent addition of new features, the printer benefits from increased performances, flexibility and security. Novelties include extended memory size and printing resolution, a low-card level sensor, an update verification wizard, and an UHF encoder. Other features are scheduled to be implemented by the beginning of next year, and include an LCD screen, increased printing output for monochrome printing, and an electronic locking system.

"With more than 50,000 printers sold and over 500 million cards printed since its launch in 2012, Primacy has rapidly turned into a market benchmark when it comes to printing quality and flexibility. The Primacy Black Edition capitalizes on Evolis’ flagship printer, and highlights once again the reason why Evolis has remained unbeaten over the past 15 years: innovation”, says Delphine Bidaud, Product Manager for Primacy, Evolis.



The Primacy Black Edition will be showcased at the Evolis booth (3B070) at the Cartes Secure Connexions trade fair, which will be held at Paris-Nord Villepinte, France, from November 17th to 19th, 2015.
