Swap plastic for paper cards in your ID Card Printer

Evolis Paper Cards bring sustainability to the forefront when printing temporary cards – significantly reducing single use of a plastic card for a much eco-friendlier alternative.

Single use plastic is the ultimate burden on our environment and has been heavily focused upon for some time, which is why replacing temporary plastic cards for events, visitor passes or luggage tags with an eco-friendly paper alternative is a no-brainer.

Whilst many would prefer to carry on using plastic for their cards due to its durability and strength, with only 10-13% of plastic items being recycled worldwide, there is simply no argument for not moving away from single use plastic.

Plastic is not biodegradable and often ends in landfill, regularly ending in the ocean, which plastic will then degrade into tiny particles releasing toxic chemicals to make their way into our both our food and our water supply.

As businesses continue to look for more environmentally sustainable products and services, Evolis provide the ultimate alternative to PVC cards without sacrificing that durability and strength due to their FSC certified Paper Cards.

Suitable for use with the Evolis Primacy 2 ID Card Printer, the eco-friendly paper cards are biodegradable and can be recycled in regular household recycling collections to then be broken down into raw material and reused for new paper-based products.

Interested in printing your own cards? The Evolis Primacy 2 ID Card Printer is a high-performance printer perfect for medium to large card printing volumes.

When might you use paper cards over plastic?
Providing a clear, simple monochrome print, Evolis Paper Cards are 30mil thick and a standard credit card size, making them the perfect type of card for events, VIP passes, luggage tags and regular visitor passes that do not need to be printed on a plastic card.

An additional benefit of paper cards that may have personal data printed on them is that they can be shredded prior to disposal, ensuring the paper cards combine sustainability and security to offer the perfect eco-friendly alternative.

The eco-friendly paper cards are a simple way for businesses to add to their sustainability and emphasise their eco-first approach to event goers, visitors, or hotel guests, who will no doubt appreciate the efforts to avoid a single-use plastic card but use a custom printed paper card instead.

Evolis Paper Cards are currently available in a pack of 500 for £36.34 excluding VAT – if your project requires further discussion, please get in touch via email on or give a friendly member of our team a call on 01244 526009.
