More Eco Friendly

As part of Evolis’ commitment to help protect our planet and create a smaller carbon footprint, these printers are designed to be more environmentally friendly. Zenius printers are designed with a focus on conserving energy by reducing the power consumption of printers through idle sleep mode, using recycled materials in manufacture whenever possible, and making the design lighter, smaller and less power-hungry. Not only does the compact size mean less material is needed to manufacture the printer itself, but the need for large packaging and Co2 emissions in transport is reduced.

Drivers & Software

Easy Badges ID badge software makes it easy to design ID badges yourself. Without having to learn Photoshop or hire expensive graphic designers, choose a template among the hundreds available and tweak it to include your logo and colors. Our software is as easy to use as it sounds. Work on PC and MAC, no need to worry about your operating system. Easy Badges software allows you to create professional quality, branded identity cards, visitor passes, access control cards, and more.

The Zenius comes with Evolis Premium Suite® software, which contains the printer drivers for the Windows and Mac OS platforms. Evolis Premium Suite® makes interaction between the printer and the computer more intuitive.
