How to turn off the Evolis Primacy 2 new Color Profile

By default, the driver applies a new color profile, specifically designed for Evolis printers, that renders the colors of your computer screen (which forms colors from light) as closely as possible when printing onto cards using a ribbon (which forms colors from dyes).

Why turn it off?

  • To rendered how they were rendered by the Primacy 1 printer.
  • To try an alternative color rendering if you are not satisfied with the color profile applied via the printer driver.
  • If you use different card printer brands in your office. The prints will be more standard.
