Save time and increase your productivity

 

Optimized production and independence

Primacy is adapted to printing in batches as it personalizes cards in record time:

  • In color: up to 225 single-sided cards per hour and 140 double-sided cards per hour,
  • In monochrome: up to 1,000 cards per hour, as the cards are ejected at the rear, enabling the printing speed to be increased (delivered as standard).

The large capacity of the feeder and hopper, which can each hold 100 cards:

  • Provides a great level of autonomy in a very reduced space,
  • And thus reduces the frequency of reloading the cards.

 

Professional printing

Primacy prints your cards in a high photographic resolution and from edge to edge for a flawless result.

  • Color printing: up to 300×600 dpi
  • Monochrome printing: up to 300×1200 dpi
