Flexible, fast, and easy-to-use, the Evolis Primacy ID card printer provides an impressive solution for issuing ID cards. Designed for medium-to-large runs, the Primacy delivers high-end results, easily creating transportation passes, payment cards, identification badges, multifunctional cards, student badges, and more.

Efficient ID Card Printing

With 100-card input and output hoppers, batch printing is easy. The Primacy prints up to 210 cards per hour for one sided cards. With Ethernet connectivity you can easily integrate the Primacy into a networked environment, allowing multiple users to access the printer.

The Primacy uses Evolis High Trust printer ribbons. A chip in the ribbon identifies the ribbon to the printer, adjusting the printing settings and making the ribbon cartridges less error prone.

Primacy LCD Touch Screen Display

Making the Primacy extremely user-friendly, the printer now has a full color LCD touch screen built in. This makes the printer more intuitive than other models with smaller, hard to read screens.

This screen will have your printer's ribbon, card, and cleaning status permanently displayed so you always know how many prints you have left. If you need to access any of the printer settings, they are only a touch away because the settings menu is in the bottom right corner of the screen.

The new color-coordinated alert system also helps you know when there's a problem. Green for good, orange for an alert, and red for a critical error. The screen will also display the printer status.

The LCD touch screen is also available as an in-field upgrade for Primacy printers you're already using.

Mac & Linux Compatibility

A major advantage of Evolis printers is compatibility with Mac and Linux operating systems. The Evolis Primacy has options for both Max and Linux drivers if needed. While not all card design software can work with Mac or Linux drivers, you will still be able to design and print cards with the Primacy.
