    The modular design of the Evolis PM1HB000S allows the printer to grow with your changing needs. The single-sided Evolis Primacy can be upgraded to dual-sided printing and/or fitted with additional encoding options any time!

  • Intuitive user-interface
    The intuitive driver interface makes the Evolis PM1HB000BS (PM1HB000RS) as easy to install and user-friendly as your desktop printer. The cassette-style ribbons are easy to load and the printer automatically detects when a new ribbon has been added. The LED display and on-screen prompts and notifications guide you swiftly through your print jobs.
  • Cost effective supplies
    The Evolis PM1HB000S is equipped with ribbon saver technology for monochrome (single-color resin) printing. With this system, you only use the ribbon length that corresponds to the length of the image to be printed. This feature allows you to double and even triple the capacity of your monochrome ribbons - reducing the cost of each card. A half-panel color ribbon is also available for economical, full-color printing, and when used properly, may be up to 42% less expensive than the standard color ribbon. It is the perfect solution for printing a color photograph or logo, and black text on a pre-printed card.
  • Three-year warranty
    Evolis is highly committed to the reliability of their card printers. So much so that they have equipped the Evolis PM1HB000RS and PM1HB000BS with a leading three year manufacturer's warranty.

  • Optional Lamination
    Easily upgrade select Evolis Primacy dual-sided card printers to include lamination capability. Lamination is an effective method for increasing card life and counterfeit prevention. A film layer is applied directly onto the card surface, protecting credentials from scratches and fading, and reinforcing card durability. The additional layer impedes card counterfeiting since it is virtually impossible to tamper with the card credentials. Note: lamination is only available on the Fire Red model.
  • Optional dual-sided printing
    The Evolis Primacy single-sided printer features a modular design that can be upgraded to dual-sided printing - any time! Note: Upgrading to a dual-sided printer with magnetic stripe encoding does not support lamination.
