Transform your ID card issuance program into an end-to-end, streamlined operation with the Evolis PrimacyID ID card printer. With robust functionality beneath the PrimacyID's modern design, expect maximum high-speed output: up to 225 full-color single-sided ID cards an hour. If your organization uses both sides of an ID card, you can upgrade to dual-sided printing easily and conveniently, in a matter of seconds. The printer's standard 300 dpi resolution enables you to produce professional-grade credentials that feature vibrant, high-definition images complemented with crisp barcodes and text. Should your business or security requirements change over time, the PrimacyID printer can be advanced to magnetic, contact, or contactless chip encoding with additional modules.

  • Trusted reliability & performance
    Whether you need to print just a few cards or large batches of IDs, depend on the PrimacyID card printer's flexibility to manage any sized print job with superior quality. With print speeds of 225 full-color or 1,000 monochrome single-sided ID cards an hour, this agile ID badge machine creates cards faster. It offers a 100-card input and 100-card output hoppers for uniform card production on hand-fed and batch printing.

  • Intuitive operation
    Let the Evolis PrimacyID printing powerhouse put your card issuance program into high gear with a straightforward user interface. For optimal printing production, it features an easy-to-read touchscreen display that notifies you when it's time for a printer cleaning, when ribbon levels are low, card volume alerts, and more.

  • Contemporary, eco-friendly design
    With its minimal footprint, the lightweight card printer weighs under five pounds for easy configuration in even the smallest office spaces. It also offers quiet operation for the ideal printing solution.

  • Native Ethernet & USB connectivity
    Ethernet and USB connectivity are standard features for the PrimacyID, providing added versatility for all of your card printing jobs.

  • Industry-leading warranty coverage
    Evolis supports their commitment to the PrimacyID's reliability and stands behind their printer with an unparalleled three-year warranty.

  • Optional dual-sided printing
    There's no need for special tools or hardware installations if you decide to upgrade your PrimacyID to dual-sided printing and take advantage of the real estate on both sides of your card. Simply purchase an activation key and follow the easy instructions that are included. It literally takes seconds!

  • Optional encoding
    With the PrimacyID card printer, you can choose which encoding options you want to integrate with your photo ID card application. These include magnetic stripe, smart card contact (ISO 7816-compliant), and contactless (MIFARE, DESFIRE, and iClass) encoding for an optimal scalable solution.

  • Optional card lamination
    Add lamination capabilities to a dual-sided PrimacyID printer to make cards more secure with longer lasting durability. In addition to protecting cards from physical wear and tear, lamination helps deter forgery and tampering. If your card application includes laminate patches or hologram varnish, the PrimacyID Lamination Module provides exceptional results.
