Press Releases

March, 2018 – Evolis, the world leader in plastic card personalization solutions, will showcase a desktop plastic card issuance system, including a lamination module, at this year’s HIMSS. Card lamination significantly increases the durability of ID badges and prevents forgery.

In a hospital environment, it is vital to identify employees and visitors to optimize flow and secure access to buildings by keeping them free from intruders. ID badges for employees guarantee a clear identification and differentiation between the various categories such as medical staff, administration, security, etc. and ensure protected access to restricted zones within the premises. Plastic ID cards offer the advantages of being resistant and conveying a professional image.

In addition to a comprehensive range of card printers, Evolis has developed a card lamination module that connects to its Primacy printer which allows for the immediate lamination of access control badges after printing.


Plastic card issuance systems offer multiple security functions; ranging from a simple photograph without data encoding, through barcodes or magnetic stripes that can be read by a badge reader, to smartcards with laminates and holograms that offer maximum forgery prevention.

The French company Evolis, with subsidiaries around the world, is today the world leader in decentralized instant issuance systems of plastic cards. The printing specialist designs, manufactures and markets compact desktop systems which enable organizations of all sizes to personalize, encode and print access and ID badges for their employees and visitors in minutes. All systems come with a card design software and internal database. Evolis has the industrial flexibility to respond to high volume projects as well as to projects with strong customization requirements.


Visitors are invited to stop by the Evolis booth for a first-hand experience of Primacy Lamination:

• One single system for encoding (magnetic stripes, smart cards, etc.), printing and laminating plastic cards
• 300 dpi definition, single- or double-sided, edge-to-edge printing
• Prints and laminates up to 215 single-sided cards or 110 double-sided cards per hour
• Easy to use—quick installation and automatic ribbon recognition
• Touch screen and electronic locking system available as an option


An extensive range of lamination films — with or without holograms, completes this product offer. Evolis can also design and customize laminates to include unique and highly secure hologram patterns. Official cards, such as driver’s licenses, national ID cards, and many others — as well as access control badges — obtain maximum durability and a very high level of security.


Since 2011, About the Kids Foundation, a non-profit organization based in California, has offered ICE Standard health cards, carrying the data needed for efficient emergency care. To print these cards, the foundation uses Evolis Primacy card printers. The ICE Standard card contains personal medical details —insurance, current treatments, allergies, etc. The contents of the ICE Standard card are displayed directly on the lock screen of a smartphone. Available in the form of a plastic card, the health card can be ordered online. Users can download their photo, enter their personal data, and pay electronically. The printed card is dispatched immediately.

“Quality and reliability were important criteria because we cannot allow any interruptions to our card printing process,” explains Joseph Ekman, President of About the Kids Foundation, who selected Evolis printers for personalizing the ICE cards.

Xavier Ballarin, Sales & Marketing Director at Evolis, North America: “Organizations today expect both convenient and highly secure access control systems. We are able to offer an instant issuance solution at an affordable price that is very easy to use for everyone, while ensuring top quality and reliability.”

Since its creation in 2000, Evolis has deployed more than 370,000 printing systems across the world, enabling organizations and companies to instantly issue plastic cards.
