World leader in the instant issuance of ID cards

Evolis has developed a recognized expertise in instant and decentralized card and badge issuance, thanks to a wide range of plastic card personalization systems.

These card printers are recommended depending on the particular requirements: type of printing required, encoding features, card life, security level and volume of cards to be printed.

In addition, Evolis has extended its range with several printers designed for specific projects, including print modules dedicated to self-service terminals.

The Evolis range covers all requirements, from simple printing in small batches to the complete customization of secure technological cards in large volumes.

A complete offer for identification purposes

To meet all card personalization needs, we have initiated a diversification strategy by developing an additional offer around card printers, which are Evolis’ core business.

We offer a complete range of consumables, specially developed to ensure optimal print quality with our printing systems. Easily recognizable under the Evolis High Trust® brand name, these consumables offer a wide variety of options and some of the lowest costs per card on the market.

To facilitate the creation of cards, from the simplest to the most elaborate, we provide intuitive and powerful card personalization software that incorporates the best options and encoding features for the creation of all types of badges.

Signature pads in conjunction with an Evolis card printer and a computer let you integrate a signature directly into the card design and so increase the level of card security.

And in order to protect cards or to facilitate the wearing of a badge, our offer includes many identification accessories: badge holders, zips, clips, lanyards, etc.
