For the highest quality PVC, composite, and earth-friendly biodegradable cards in the business, Evolis offers the perfect complement to your genuine ID card printer. Our entire line of graphic-quality cards are designed around the industry standard CR-80 30 mil (CR8030 or CR80.030) card that is compatible with nearly all professional ID card printers.
• CR-80 30 mil cards are the most commonly used plastic card size, roughly the same thickness as a credit card.
• All mag stripe cards come with a HiCo (high coercivity) stripe that stores information more securely and outlast low coercivity (LoCo) magnetic stripe cards.
• Direct-to-card printers are compatible with all three types of cards: standard PVC, composite PVC-PET and biodegradable PVC cards. Retransfer and laminating printers require composite PVC-PET cards that can withstand the high temperatures produced by these units.
