If you’re looking for the power of an industrial card printer, but need the flexibility of a desktop printer, you need the Evolis Quantum 2 ID Card Printer. Especially if you’re printing a large volume of cards in a short period of time, the Evolis Quantum 2 ID Card Printer can produce more than 1,000 cards per hour with personalization on the front and back and can print in color or monochrome.

The Evolis Quantum 2 ID Card Printer is perfect for high-volume situations like:

  • ID badges
  • Loyalty cards
  • Transit passes
  • Event badges
  • Student ID cards
  • Payment cards
  • Phone cards
  • And much more...

Be more productive:

Featuring an advanced feed tray and stacker that can hold 500 cards each, the Evolis Quantum 2 ID Card Printer prints more than 1,000 cards per hour in monochrome. If you need fast printing for color cards, you can easily churn out more than 150 cards per hour.

You only need one pass through the printer thanks to a reversible encoding module that independent from the printing module. The Evolis Quantum 2 ID Card Printer delivers cards that are encoded and printed in a single pass, saving you time and effort.

Easy to use and maintain:

Evolis Quantum 2 ID Card Printer was designed to make your job easier by making operating and maintaining the printer simple.

You can load and retrieve cards without removing the storage trays (on unlocked version), and you can check the card level with one glance.

The LCD display shows you the printer status and what your consumable levels are so you’ll know exactly when something needs replaced.

Multiple encoding options:

Evolis Quantum 2 ID Card Printer comes with a removable encoding module that lets you combine magnetic stripes, contact smart cards, and contactless cards to get just the right ID card for your security needs.
