The Primacy Black printer, a limited edition from Evolis…

As part of its 15th Anniversary celebrations, Evolis is introducing a limited edition of it’s phenomenally successful Primacy printer.

The stunning looking Primacy Black Edition boasts a very gracefully crafted body in red and glossy black, along with carbon effects that dress up both sides.

With just 2,000 of the Primacy Black Edition units being manufactured, demand will no doubt quickly outstrip the available stock. In addition to its ‘must have’ looks that will elegantly
complement the aesthetics of even the most modern of offices, the limited edition units offer exceptional value as they are being shipped with extras.

These extras include:

  • The user-friendly CardPresso XS Edition software tool to design and personalise plastic cards with a database connection option,
  • A colour (YMCKO-K) ribbon,
  • 200 print capacity and 100 blank cards.

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. It is a highly efficient solution for printing and encoding ID cards in medium and large runs and has proved to be a particularly popular choice for users who have a requirement to simultaneously print and encode ID cards.
