How to print Doubled-Sided with an Evolis Primacy Duplex

When I print with my Evolis Primacy Duplex, I get two cards instead of one card printed double-sided, what can I do? The Evolis Primacy Duplex is a great ID card printer, but by default it is configured by the manufacturer as Simplex (single sided). You need to open the Evolis Primacy Printing Preferences and change it.

Steps to change the Duplex Mode on your Printer

  1. First go to your Devices and Printers.

    Windows 10
    Windows 10 Evolis Primacy Properties

    Windows 7
    windows devices printers


  2. Right click on the Evolis Primacy, and click Printing Preferences.

    Windows 10
    Windows 10 Evolis Primacy Printing Preferences

    Windows 7
    Windows 7 Evolis Primacy Printing Preferences


  3. In the Printing Preferences look for theses options:

    Windows 10
    In the list, change Dual-side to On and then change the Duplex Mode for the type of printing you need.

    Windows 7
    Go down the list and change the Duplex Mode for the type of printing you need. Leave it to Simplex for single-sided printing.

    You have 4 or 5 choices for the Duplex Mode, make sure that you have the right ribbon inside the printer. The RFID chip inside your ribbon cartridge should tell your printer the Ribbon Type automatically except for monochrome ribbons (they do not have one).
