Angers, 28 August 2017 – Evolis, the worldwide leader in plastic card personalization solutions, has developed three new all-in-one solutions for price labelling on plastic cards that meet the diverse needs of small, independent food professionals up to large retail outlets.
No more hassles of illegible and unattractive labelling! With these office solutions for the design and printing of price tags, the retailer can display all the necessary consumer information that complies with the European INCO regulations: ingredients, prices, allergens. The Edikio plastic card printing system creates and prints durable, easy-to-clean price tags within seconds. In addition to saving time and respecting hygiene rules, Edikio solutions also offer the opportunity to rethink price tags as true marketing tools: a harmonized display, clearly legible, clean and aesthetic that reflects the professional image of a shop or restaurant.


The three solutions from Evolis enable grocers, caterers and restaurant managers to create their own price tag design and print them in a few seconds. All Edikio solutions are comprised of card design software, a card printer as well as blank plastic cards and a print ribbon, which are compliant with the the European regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004 for compatibility with foodstuffs. Price tags can thus be created at any time, directly at the point of sale, individually or in batches.

Evolis offers three solutions adapted to the needs of all food professionals:

• Edikio Access, the affordable solution for single-sided card printing in credit card format for small volumes.
• Edikio Flex, the flexible solution for printing price tags in long format as well as credit card format to fit different display needs.
• Edikio Duplex, the advanced solution for double-sided and highvolume card printing. The reverse side allows for the display of information dedicated to the sales staff.


The software, unique in the market, is the only one dedicated to price management and printing of price tags on plastic cards and has been specially designed for food professionals (butchers, bakeries, delis, caterers, fishmongers, …). All versions of the software are simple to use, customizable and allow the import of price data via an Excel file. The most advanced version of the software, Edikio Pro available with the Edikio Duplex solution, is able to
manage multi-user rights, a requirement of most large food retail outlets.”


The black and white ribbons are certified ISEGA for contact with foodstuffs. The white cards printed with monochrome black, white, green, red and blue have undergone laboratory tests carried out by TÜV Rheinland for contact compatibility with foodstuffs. Evolis offers a wide range of consumables for various combinations of displaying information:

– Black ˝slate˝-style cards with white print – White cards with monochrome printing in black, red, green or blue
– Various card formats: credit card (54×85,6 mm), long (50x150mm and 50x120mm) or small (54x29mm) for the labeling of small products or the addition of a special mention: ˝Novelty˝, ˝House Specialty˝ or other.


The Edikio solutions are available within the Evolis distribution network in each country. Resellers of Evolis systems offer on-site or remote installation of products as well as technical support. On average, half an hour is enough to install the system and train the user to use it. No IT expertise is needed.

It is possible to utilize the printer for many other print applications.
