To upgrade your Evolis Primacy printer from a single-sided printer to a double-sided printer, you simply activate the flip-over module with the activation key as shown in this short video.

How To Activate the Flip-Over Module


Your printer must be powered on and active (not in standby mode).

  1. Open the Primacy printer cover.
  2. Remove the ribbon from the printer if present.
  3. Take your activation key and insert it in the location provided.
  4. Close the cover. The 3 LEDs on the control panel start flashing one after the other for between 5 and 10 seconds.
  5. When the 3 LEDs remain lit for several seconds then turn off, activation has finished and is successful.
  6. Open the printer cover and remove the activation key. Put the ribbon back.
  7. Close the cover.

Next, print a technical test card to obtain all the updated information about your printer. (Do this after activation has taken place.)ID Card Group's low price guarantee
