Evolis Badgy All-in-One Card Printer is Perfect for Low-Volume Jobs
Ideal for schools, gyms, and small offices, Badgy comes with everything you need to start printing right out of the box - making it one of the first all-in-one card printers for low-security environments. What an awesome concept to find everything you need to produce a card in your Badgy box!

Badgy200 - New and Different
Evolis recently revamped the Badgy. Now called the Evolis Badgy200, this printer looks more like the other Evolis card printer models. Also changed is the large 100 card input hopper - in its place is a 25 card input and output hopper which is still sufficient for low-volume printing. Another big change is the card surface coverage. Badgy200 now prints edge to edge, like its higher-end counterparts. 

Great for Simple, Low-Security Card Printing
Though Badgy200 will print at 300 dpi, don't expect to get the same card surface coverage as you would from a higher-end printer. Badgy200 ships with the new Badgy Design Studio +.  Not only does this software come with plenty of predesigned templates, but it allows you to connect to an Excel document as well giving you the power of importing your database. The software allows you to design simple, but professional-looking ID card without higher-end security options like magnetic stripe or smart card encoding. 

Speed and Ribbon Choices
Badgy200 uses a 100-print YMCKO color ribbon or a new 500-print monochrome black ribbon. The original version of the Badgy didn't have a monochrome ribbon available.  This will open up options for using preprinted card stock in addition to a number of other ideas.  

As for the print speed, by today's card printer standards you will need to have patience. Using the full-color YMCKO ribbon, you're looking at about 38 seconds a card or 95/hour. Monochrome, on the other hand, is faster at 11 seconds per card.

For faster print speeds, you may want to consider the Zenius or Primacy models.  Evolis Badgy200 allows you to print on either 20 mil or 30 mil CR80 card stock.

Works with Multiple Operating Systems
Like the rest of the Evolis line, Badgy200 drivers and design software will work with both the full suite of Windows - from XP to Win 8 - as well as the Mac OSX.  

Standard Warranty Can Be Upgraded
Badgy200 comes standard with a 1 year warranty, but you also have the option to upgrade to up to 3 years for extra piece of mind. Other Evolis models come with longer standard warranties. Interested in upgrading your Badgy200 warranty? Contact an ID Expert at 877-868-0012 for details. 

Note: Evolis also offers the lower Badgy100 model which leaves a white border around every printed card and offers a much lower print quality and surface coverage. Badgy200 also ships with an upgraded version of Badgy Design Studio. Badgy100 does not.
