Evolis Elypso Front Desk Printer & Evolis Kiosk Card Printer for Self-Service Terminals

West Sacramento, CA — ID Card Group, a leading provider of ID card printers, ID systems, supplies, and accessories is now offering two large-scale printer options for multi-site ID printing needs – the Evolis Elypso and the Kiosk.

The Evolis Elypso card printer issues personalized cards instantly at busy front-desk/reception card stations, making it well suited for membership cards, transit passes, healthcare cards, loyalty or gift cards, and payment cards.

Compact and powerful, the Elypso is easy to access even in tight front-desk spaces. With its unique front-loading design, inserting and retrieving cards is fast and easy - even in high-traffic environments.

Capable of printing single- or dual-sided cards in monochrome or color, the Elypso is also fast. It can produce a personalized dual-sided color card in less than 30 seconds. In addition, the Elypso can be equipped easily with encoders for magnetic stripe and contact and contactless smart cards.

The Evolis Kiosk printer is a self-service card personalization module that can be integrated into terminals or machines, allowing users to instantly produce their badge or card themselves.

Customizable to adapt to specific requirements, the Evolis Kiosk is ideal for delivering self-issued individual single or double-sided cards.

Powerful, but easy to operate, the Kiosk is designed to reduce everyday maintenance. It issues remote notification on printer status and consumable levels – such as the card level alert.

The Kiosk's high-capacity feeders reduce the need to frequently reload cards. Available in a range of different capacities, the single feeder unit can be ordered with 460, 260, or 180 card capacities. The optional dual feeder offers 2 x 500 cards. Card thickness range is from 0.76 mm – 30 mil.

Multiple encoding options are available on the Kiosk – all of which can be combined together – and include magnetic, smartcards, and RFID cards.
Both the reception-sized Evolis Elypso - and terminal-sized Evolis Kiosk - fit seamlessly with existing ID printing systems, are supported with free software development kits (SDKs) and Evolis technical support, and are compatible with Evolis Primacy color and monochrome ribbons.

Because the Elypso and Kiosk are designed for large-scale, multi-site needs, both printers are available only in minimum orders of 20 units. To order, or to learn more about these large scale ID program solutions, please contact an ID Card Group ID expert today at (877) 868-0012 or
