The Evolis Lamination Unit is an essential feature for making long-lasting ID cards. Lamination works by applying a protective film (either clear or with a holographic design) over the top of your printed card.
This gives you several benefits – UV-blocking thick lamination will protect your card from fading in the sunlight, and the laminate will protect your card from day-to-day use that may scratch it including swiping magnetic stripe cards. Lamination also makes it harder to tamper with cards.
Unlike a traditional lamination upgrade for an ID card printer that can add thousands of dollars to the cost of the printer, this Evolis Lamination Unit is a standalone laminator that can laminate cards printed from an ID card printer you already own and aren’t ready to replace. This allows you to continue getting the most use from a printer you already own and add to the lifetime of your cards.
Available Lamination Film
A wide variety of lamination film is available for the Evolis Lamination Unit, allowing you to laminate any card type. For most styles, you can choose from 600 yield ribbons and 1,200 high yield ribbons.
Lamination film types include:
Standard clear film in 0.5mil and 1.0mil thickness
Holographic film in 0.6mil and 1.0mil thickness
Cutout film for smart cards in 0.5mil and 1.0mil thickness
Dual-sided film for magnetic stripe cards
Compatible with Standard ID Cards
The Evolis Lamination Unit works with standard CR80 30mil cards printed on any ID card printer, including smart cards and magnetic stripe cards.
Compatible card types:

Special varnished cards

I am so happy
I am so happy with the printer that I purchased at AVON and the quality of cards that it produces. Beyond that, the customer service at AVON is so good. There is always someone available on the phone--a REAL person, and sometimes the owner Jeff--and they go the distance for my satisfaction as a customer. Thank you Debbie and Gurpreet and Jeff for all that you do! With so much automation, customer service is so important and you guys get it!

How many cards will you print a year?
Organizations needing to print less than 25 cards per year may find it more economical to use a card printing service.
Automatically print on both side of the Card?
Dual-sided printers usually cost significantly more than single-sided printers. In some cases a single-sided printer can be used to print both sides of an ID card:
If the back of every card is identical (i.e.: If lost, return to... This card is property of...), you can use a single-sided printer and pre-print a batch of card backs, often using an inexpensive black ribbon. Those cards can be sent through the printer a second time to include customized information on the other side. This method is not recommended for printing on technology cards due to possible damage it could cause to the card.
Even if the back and front is unique for every card, you can print one side of an ID card, flip it over and print the back. This is much more time consuming, and is not recommended for organizations that print a large volume of ID Cards. This method is also not recommended for printing on technology cards due to possible damage it could cause to the card.
Need to use the printer with an Apple MacTM?
Only a few models of ID card printers on the market are compatible with Mac computers.
There is currently not any commercial ID card software that is compatible with Mac computers. If at all possible, we recommend using a PC to manage an ID card system.
