Eco-Friendly and Affordable Evolis Zenius ID Card Printer Brings High-End Performance to Small Batch Card Printing

Easy-to-Use Evolis Zenius Card Printer Is Compact and Quiet Yet Delivers Big Performance and Benefits - Available Now at

West Sacramento, CA - Organizations looking for a compact, easy-to-use color card printer for small batch, on-demand ID card or badge printing now have an eco-friendly, affordable choice.

The Evolis Zenius, now available at, is compact and quiet enough to fit in small spaces - such as welcome desks, check-in counters, or office cubicles - where identification cards and badges are often printed in small batches or as needed.

The lightest single-sided printer in its class, weighing only 7.3 lbs, Evolis' Zenius card printer is easy to set up and move about, yet powerful enough to print high-end photo IDs and name badges with ease.

Designed with its user in mind, the new Evolis Zenius card printer simplifies routine tasks, such as ribbon installation and printer status monitoring.

Using printer ribbons with RFID technology, the Evolis Zenius automatically identifies and configures Evolis ribbons, which are housed in a handy ribbon cassette for easy installation. In addition, users are notified via the LED display when the printer is approaching - or has reached - the end of a ribbon.

As a small batch, low-volume printer, the Evolis Zenius raises the bar on graphic performance. Paired with an YMCKO High-Trust® Evolis ribbon, the Zenius printer can produce up to 100 card prints with sharp four-color images, text, and barcodes, while adding a clear overcoat layer that protects ID cards and badges from abrasion and wear and tear. Plastic cards and badges printed using an Evolis ribbon can last for up to 3 years, even with frequent use.

Both the Evolis Zenius printer and its ribbons are earth friendly. The Zenius printer is built with recycled material and can be recycled itself, comes with standby and sleep modes, holds the EnergyStar certification, complies with the stringent ErP European Directive, and uses noise reduction technology for quiet operation. The High Trust® Evolis ribbons and their packaging are also made of recycled material.

For organizations needing encoding options, Evolis will release a Zenius printer with the ability to combine multiple encoders within a single system in late 2011. An array of encoding options will allow the personalization of technology cards - from tamper proof access control badges to payment cards.

The Evolis Zenius card printer's modular design makes in-house upgrades simple - so organizations will be able to upgrade easily if they choose to add encoder technology later this year. is also offering basic or complete starter kits with the Evolis Zenius card printer. Starter kits simplify the start-up process for customers tasked with implementing an ID card or membership card program, yet who are unsure where to begin or what supplies are required. Each starter kit is specifically created by ID Card Group to offer the best components at an affordable cost.

The Evolis Zenius basic starter kit adds a YMCKO full-color ribbon for 100 images and 100 blank PVC cards. The Complete starter kit adds photo ID software and a web cam for capturing photographs to the Basic kit contents.
