How to print double-sided with an Evolis Primacy 2 Duplex

When printing with my Evolis Primacy 2 Duplex, I get two cards instead of one card printed double-sided. What can I do?

The Evolis Primacy 2 Duplex is a superb ID card printer, but by default, it is configured by the manufacturer as Simplex (single-sided). Therefore, you need to open and change the Evolis Primacy 2 settings.

Steps to Enable the Evolis Primacy 2 dual side printing feature.

  1. Open the Evolis Premium Suite 2 and click on the Printer settings button below. Evolis Premium Suite 2
  2. Click the THREE DOTS on the top right, and enable Display advanced settings if not already done.
  3. Evolis Premium Suite 2 - Display advanced settings

  4. Click Printing -> Ribbon in the left menu.
  5. Evolis Premium Suite 2 - Ribbon

  6. Click the Enable dual side printing, in the Front / Back options. Enable dual side printing
  7. Next, select the Front / Back combination, depending on the ribbon you have.
    • YMCKO / K (best option)
    • YMC / KO
    • YMCKO / KO
    • KO / KO
    • KO / YMCKO
  8. You are done! You can close the Evolis Premium Suite 2.
We recommend closing and reopening your card printer software for the change to take effect.
