The Evolis card personalization systems are extremely versatile. You can upgrade your Primacy printer from a single-sided version to a double-sided version with an activation key, easily add encoding modules to Zenius, Primacy and Elypso printers (magnetic stripe, contact or contactless smart cards) in a few simple steps, etc. Depending on the model, these modifications can be configured at the factory or directly at your site.

Your printing and card personalization systems are made to measure, in record time. We can modify existing printing systems, for example by adding third-party devices. We can also install Evolis printer modules in self-service terminals or other equipment.
Evolis stands out for the versatility of the services we offer. We tailor our services to your specific business or country and are actively involved at all stages of the service chain.
#4 – International expertise
A focus on international sales that makes Evolis what it is today
Evolis directors have always taken an international approach, ever since the company was established. This bold decision has made the Evolis group the leading provider of instant printing of plastic cards.

#5 – Eco-responsibility
Evolis’ environmental policy at all levels of the company
In light of Evolis’ rapid growth, management quickly realized how important it was to control our environmental footprint and went on to implement a comprehensive environmental management system.
A global philosophy
From constructing an eco-designed building (rainwater recovery, electricity production) to educating employees (waste recycling) our collective and individual initiatives to reduce our environmental impact are part of a global philosophy.
Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) of a card printer
To find out how to improve our environmental performance, we hired an outside firm to conduct a life cycle analysis of Evolis card printers. The use phase was shown to be the most polluting, far ahead of the manufacturing, distribution and end of life phases (59% to 98% of the impacts for 9 of the 11 indicators analyzed in 2011 for the Pebble 4 printer). We then took action on these phases in order to reduce their impact.
Evolis restricts the use of hazardous substances in the manufacture of our products, in compliance with the European RoHS directive. For the latest generation of card printers, our engineers have developed an ultra-efficient sleep mode that uses nearly 6 times less energy over the lifetime of the printer (estimated at 5 years).
To reduce the environmental impact during the use phase of our card printers, Evolis took action with respect to consumables by:
- increasing the capacity of our color print ribbons (100% more for Primacy, 20% more for Zenius)
- replacing the ribbon cartridge material with a recycled and recyclable material.
