Single-Sided Evolis Primacy Description
Fast and reliable, the Evolis Primacy single-sided ID card printer can print up to 210 full-color cards per hour. The modular design of the single sided printer allows you to add dual-sided printing and encoding options any time! The Evolis Primacy single sided printer offers two exterior color options: fire red and brilliant blue.
- Fast and reliable
The Evolis Primacy plastic card printer produces cards in record time, boasting 210 full-color or 850 monochrome single-sided cards per hour. To support this card capacity, the Evolis Primacy printer has 100-card input and output hoppers, which are conveniently located at the front of the printer for easy access and monitoring. Plus, a 30-card reject tray is located at the back of the printer.
- Compact and modular design
While powerful and fast, the Evolis Primacy is also compact. The small footprint of the Evolis Primacy allows it to accommodate any desktop. In addition, the printer is a quiet and energy-efficient printer, which is backed by ENERGY STAR® certification.
The modular design of the Evolis Primacy allows the printer to grow with your changing needs. The single-sided Evolis Primacy can be upgraded to dual-sided printing and/or fitted with encoding options any time!
- Intuitive user-interface
The intuitive driver interface makes the Evolis Primacy as easy to install and user-friendly as your desktop printer. The cassette-style ribbons are easy to load and the printer automatically detects when a new ribbon has been added. The LED display and on-screen prompts and notifications guide you swiftly through your printer jobs.
- Cost effective supplies
The Evolis Primacy is equipped with ribbon saver technology for monochrome (single-color resin) printing. With this system, you only use the ribbon length that corresponds to the length of the image to be printed. This feature allows you to double, or even triple, the capacity of your monochrome ribbons - reducing the cost of each card. A half-panel color ribbon is also available for economical full-color printing, and when used properly, may be up to 42% less expensive than the standard color ribbon. It is the perfect solution to printing a color photograph or logo, and black text on a pre-printed card.
- Three year warranty
Evolis is highly committed to the reliability of their card printers. So much so that they have equipped the Evolis Primacy has a leading three year warranty.
- Built-in USB and Ethernet and optional wireless connectivity
Operate your card printing program on one or multiple computers through a standard network with the built-in USB and Ethernet connectivity. You can also optionally connect wirelessly.

The Evolis Primacy is flexible in the way that they provide options for creating feature-rich cards with the use of magnetic stripe and smart card technologies. Like dual-sided printing, encoding options can be added to the Primacy any time.
