Evolis Rolls Out Its Entry-Level Strategy with Its Latest Color Printer: Tattoo2

Evolis, the European leader in solutions for plastic card personalization, announces the launch of Tattoo2, an advanced color printer tailored for instant personalization of cards.

Fort Lauderdale, FL, October 21, 2007 --(PR.com)-- Evolis demonstrates further its commitment to making plastic card printing affordable with the launch of Tattoo2. This new model, which is the most compact printer in the market, benefits from the expertise and features that make Evolis printing solutions stand out from the crowd: simple operation, first-rate performances, quality printing and a low upfront investment.
With Tattoo2, Evolis taps the entry-level segment of the market and addresses the needs of small organizations (SMEs, sports clubs, associations, branch offices, libraries, canteens and local authorities) that are looking for simple way to issue cards. Tattoo2 is designed for card personalization on-demand or in small runs, and for applications such as membership cards, loyalty cards and visitors’ and employees’ badges (with text, pictures, logos and bar codes).

Tattoo2: the most compact printer in its category

Tattoo2 makes a difference thanks to its size. A lightweight printer (just 2.4 kgs – 5.5 lbs), Tattoo2 is a follow-me printer that will personalize cards and badges for mobile applications, as well as for trade shows and events that require an effective visitor management system. Its elegant and contemporary design makes it the ultimate printer at reception counters and welcome desks of any organization.

Tattoo2 features a standard 100-card detachable feeder as well as a manual feeding mode for printing cards singly or in small batches.

As a user-friendly printer, Tattoo2 benefits from a clamshell-designed access that eases ribbon installation or replacement, and offers an exclusive « Push & Twist » system that makes print-head replacement really simple.
