You can easily print a color card in 30 seconds and up to 150 color cards per hour, leaving no long waiting period for you and your customers.

If space is tight:

When itÙs time to change the ribbon, Evolis High Trust ribbons install simply and easily, and are automatically recognized by the printer.
