Key Printer Features

Is the Evolis Primacy 2 right for you?

The Primacy 2 is a direct-to-card (DTC) printer, ideal for those looking to print a simple card design onto plain plastic cards and the ability to print to access control cards if encoding is required. The Primacy 2 is the ideal solution for companies with medium to large volume printing requirements. If this sounds like you, then the Primacy 2 may be just what you’re looking for.

Create strong, durable cards.

Create stunning cards with a high-quality finish with the Evolis Primacy 2. The Primacy 2’s high-resolution printing and colour profile capabilities give every printed card a professional look and feel. What’s more, the Primacy 2 can be used with new YMCKOO ribbons that add a double overlay to increase card durability. This increased durability means longer-lasting cards and lower reissuance costs.

Printing just got easy.

The Evolis Primacy 2 keeps the user in mind. Print using your mobile device or tablet for a seamless printing experience. The printer is compatible with drop-in ribbon cassettes, making it easy for users to instantly insert ribbons, even without previous experience. (Coming Soon).

Full speed ahead.

The printer has the ability to produce up to anywhere from 170- 280 cards an hour depending on the ribbon choice and print speed mode selected. These rapid print speeds make the Primacy 2 ideal for large workplaces or settings that will be issuing high volumes of cards.

Secure? Of course.

Choose the level of security that’s right for your requirements. The Primacy 2 offers a number of built-in and optional security features. Digital erasing keeps your sensitive information safe, completely erasing the data from the printer’s memory. Or choose the optional UV printing effect for clone-proof cards.

Users can also opt for Kineclipse®, which masks data on your ribbons to ensure complete privacy protection. Whichever options you decide to go for, the Primacy 2 offers security options for all.

Design cards in minutes.

When you buy a Primacy 2 card printer through Digital ID, you’ll get EasyBadge Lite design software for free. Usually, worth £195, it’s the best ID card software on the market and even creates a sample design for you. It’ll have you up and running in no time at all but please note, it’s only compatible with Microsoft Windows and is limited to 100 records.


The Evolis Primacy 2 Expert card printer is compatible with USB and ethernet. The Primacy 2 can be used with Windows, Mac OS and Linux systems.

Pick a card, any card.

The Evolis Primacy 2 prints onto CR80 credit-card sized cards. Easily print on biodegradable PVC, PVC ISO blank cards, self-adhesive, rewritable and paper-based cards. The only card we wouldn’t advise you to use is an access control card. This is because these cards contain a raised chip and printing over this chip with a direct-to-card printer can cause a blemish to your print, resulting in higher re-issuance costs.

Support you can rely on.

The Evolis Primacy 2 ID card printer comes with a three-year manufacturer warranty. Our in-house team is also on-hand to provide support for the first 30 days.

Evolis Primacy 2 – Common FAQs

Q: Can the Primacy 2 print onto access control cards?

A: It can, but we don’t recommend using the Primacy 2 to print onto contactless or smart cards as it is a direct-to-card printer.

Q: Can the Primacy 2 print on both sides of the card?

A: The Primacy 2 ID card printer is available in both single and dual-sided models.

Q: Are cards and printer ribbons included?

A: Unfortunately not. All consumables are sold separately.

Q: How do I connect the Primacy 2 printer to my computer?

A: You can easily connect the Primacy 2 to your computer with the USB provided or via ethernet connection.

Q: Does the Primacy 2 Expert support rewritable printing?

A: Yes. The Primacy 2 offers rewriteable printing, making it easy to reuse temporary cards and lower costs.

Q: How does rewritable printing work?

A: Rewrite technology uses heat to erase the information on the card surface and replace it with new information. This is ideal for cards that need updating regularly, such as temporary cards or visitor badges.

Q: Does the Primacy 2 support over-the-edge card printing?

A: Direct-to-card printers do not print right up to the sharp edge of a card, as doing so could damage the printhead. Therefore, a small, plain border is left around the sides of the card surface, to prolong the printer’s lifespan.
