We award the Evolis Zenius four stars out of five. This is because it prints in high-quality with sharp imagery, but in smaller, individual batches, meaning companies that don't need large volumes of ID cards won't have to waste their money on the wrong printer. It is also great value for money and has the options for additional add-ons.
The one issue with this printer is that it doesn't print dual-sided, only single-sided.
