Evolis Zenius Classic Printer Features

Evolis Zenius Classic ID Card Printer - a cost-effective, reliable printer ideal for printing between 500 and 5000 plastic cards a year.

The Evolis Zenius provides high quality single-sided card printing singly or in small runs, with a choice of automated or manual feeding.

Reliable and compact

The Zenius ID Card Printer is a reliable and compact ID card printer that will print personalised ID cards, name badges and other plastic cards in colour or monochrome easily and cost-effectively.

The Zenius Classic is ideal if you don't need any added capabilities to your cards, for example you don't need an encoding option. Being USB only, it's the most cost-effective choice if you are printing cards from a single computer.

If you need to connect to your ID card printer over a network, or need to encode access control, magstripe or contactless cards, you will  need the Zenius Expert.

Hand-feed for single cards, auto feed for batch printing

Features of the Zenius Classic:

  • Prints up to 150 colour cards per hour
  • Prints up to 500 monochrome cards per hour
  • 300 dpi print resolution
  • Quiet and small (barely larger than an A4 piece of paper)
  • Automatic or manual feed
  • Comes with CardPresso XXS Lite ID Card Design software

The printer comes with a 2 year manufacturer warranty, but you can upgrade to swap-out cover for an additional cost.
