      The Evolis Primacy 2 plastic card printer produces cards in record time, boasting 280 full-color cards per hour. To support this card capacity, the Evolis Primacy 2 printer has 100-card or optional 200-card input and output hoppers, which are conveniently located at the front of the printer for easy access and monitoring. Plus, a card reject tray is located at the back of the printer.

      While powerful and fast, the Evolis Primacy 2 is also compact. The small footprint of the Evolis Primacy 2 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 LED display and on-screen prompts and notifications guide you swiftly through your printer jobs.
    • Cost-effective supplies
      The Evolis Primacy 2 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, it is maybe 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.

Even more security and durability for your cards.

From the simplest to the most secure cards, Primacy 2 can do it all. You can choose the level of security depending on your requirements:

  • Encoders: encode contact or contactless chips and magnetic strips with our various encoders. Choose the ones you need when you purchase or add them throughout the life of your Primacy 2.
  • UV effect: thanks to the specific YMCKOO ribbon, or via the overlay layer of our standard color ribbons associated with the lamination module, you can add a UV effect to your cards in order to give them a greater level of security.
  • Double overlay layer: a double overlay layer means optimized durability for your printed cards. This double layer of varnish provides enhanced wear and abrasion protection, with 3 times the abrasion resistance of standard YMCKO ribbon.
  • Lamination module: ordered at the same time as your Primacy 2 or added as needed, the lamination module allows you to integrate advanced security and protection elements (varnish, patch, or generic or custom holograms). The lamination module is the essential feature for an optimum level of security and durability.
  • Scanner: the scanner allows you to check that the elements on your cards have been printed correctly and to keep a print history.

The printed data also needs security.

When you personalize a card with personal data, the data is sent to the printer so that it can start the personalization. Once the printing is finished, this information is then readable on the ribbon. How can we ensure that no data remains accessible, either digitally from the printer’s memory or physically from the ribbon?

To achieve this, Primacy 2 incorporates two technologies:

  • Kineclipse®: The sensitive information on the ribbon after printing is made illegible by a masking system.
  • Digital erasing: The data sent to the printer is automatically deleted from its memory.
