The Evolis Primacy

Evolis Primary ID Card Printer

The innovative design engineers at Evolis have yet again demonstrated their ability to respond to evolving market demands with the introduction of the upgraded Primacy desktop ID card printer.


Since its launch three years ago, the Primacy has become a very popular choice for users who have a requirement to simultaneously print and encode ID cards. Evolis has now ensured that the Primacy will maintain its popularity by adding new features which are designed to make it even more powerful, flexible and user friendly, as well as provide extra security.

Included in the upgraded Primacy, is an increase in memory size and printing resolution choices for a sharper definition of images and texts, whilst a new verification wizard allows users to quickly verify if a firmware update is available and to be able to install it in just a few clicks.

For long-range access control, transportation or vehicle identification applications, Evolis has added a UHF encoding option to the Primacy’s long list of impressive features.
