Evolis Pebble 4 Printer Details

Behind its sleek, modern design, the Evolis Pebble 4 single-sided printer offers robust card printing and all the technology options you need. A leading three-year warranty is included - and that includes the printhead!

  • Operate and maintain your printer with ease
    The Evolis Pebble 4 single-sided printer allows you to get your card printing program up and running quickly and easily. The printer manager driver tool allows you to fine tune your colors and settings, while the printer's LED display guides you through the printing process. Plus, the Evolis Pebble printer is fast - producing up to 150 full color cards per hour, or 1,000 monochrome cards per hour! The sleek clamshell design is optimal for easy card loading and ribbon changes.

  • Achieve a low cost of ownership
    Double or even triple the capacity of your monochrome printer ribbons with the Evolis Pebble 4. It is equipped with ribbon saver technology to reduce your cost per card. Save even more with a half-panel color ribbon that costs up to 42% less than a standard color ribbon. It's ideal if you only need to print a name or photograph on half of a pre-printed card.

Customize your printer to your needs with:

  • Additional feeder cartridges and manual card feeder - Optional
    If you need to print on different card stocks or want to reduce the breaks in batch card production, additional Evolis Pebble 4 card feeder cartridges may come in handy. If you'd like the ability to create one-off cards, a manual card feeder option is also available.

  • Card encoding - Optional
    Optional magnetic stripe or contactless smart card encoding capabilities allow you to easily create multi-function ID cards with your Evolis Pebble.

  • Ethernet connectivity
    Operate your ID card program on a shared network by taking advantage of the optional Ethernet capability.

  • Extended warranty and printer loaner plans - Optional
    ID Zone offers extended warranty plans with satisfaction-guaranteed service handled by our in-house, knowledgeable technical support team. Our extended warranty plans include support via a toll-free number or live chat, total parts replacement plus labor, and fast turn-around on printer repairs. In the event your printer needs to be sent to us for repair, our loaner plans help ensure your card printing can continue. With printer loaner coverage, we'll send you a loaner printer to use while yours is in for repair.

  • Card printer training - Optional
    A training session with our in-house Technical Support team will get your new Evolis Pebble 4 card printer up and running in no time. Your training will be tailored around your specific printer and the specific topics you would like assistance with. A typical printer training session may cover topics such as:
    • Card printer installation assistance
    • A review of the printer's user interface
    • How to load the ribbon and cards
    • Special printer features
