The ideal system for personalizing and laminating your cards

An all-in-one system for long-life cards

Primacy Lamination is an all-in-one, affordable system for:

  • Encoding,
  • Color sublimation printing and monochrome thermal transfer,
  • And laminating your cards, with or without holograms.

Your ID cards will have maximum durability and a high level of security. Laminating your cards will prevent incidents of fraud.

This system is ideal for producing secure cards such as:

  • Secure employee badges,
  • Driver’s licenses,
  • Resident cards,
  • Military or police ID badges,
  • Airport access control badges,
  • Social security cards
  • Easy production of highly secure cards

    Durable cards

    The cards are laminated by heat-sealing a film (varnish or patch of varying thickness) over the entire surface of the card once it has been encoded and printed.
    This adds durability to your cards and increases their life cycle to up to 10 years*.


    Highly secure cards

    Evolis has a wide range of patches and laminates, with or without holograms. For added security, our teams can develop entirely personalized laminates.  Primacy Lamination can be used with various combinable coding modules:

    • Magnetic strip,
    • Smartcard,
    • Contactless card.


    Upgrade your existing Primacy fleet in one easy step

    A scalable, easy-to-use system

    When you install your system, you connect the lamination module to the printer in one easy step by infrared communication. Your system is up and running within minutes. If you already have a Primacy printer, you can upgrade your system by buying the lamination module separately.

    The different ribbons and laminates are installed intuitively and are automatically recognized by the system.
