Value Added Features
Color of the foil: We can provide hologram in customized and different colors. A higher security option is to use dual or tri-color foils. For example; silver can be combined with green or red can be combined with green & blue. For this purpose standard colors are available or customized colors can also be generated.
Inkjet Numbering: Fixed or Sequential numbering which can be pure numeric or a combination of alphabets and numbers can be printed. It is becoming imperative for organizations to keep a track of goods & indeed the Holograms themselves. This form of variable information can include serial nos. / batch codes / date of manufacturing thus leading to customization of each Hologram.
UV Numbering: Fixed or Sequential numbering which can be pure numeric or a combination of alphabets and numbers can be printed. Additional information like Batch No., Month and Year of Manufacture etc. can also be printed on the Hologram using invisible UV inks which are visible only through a UV light source. This helps in second stage authentication & also to track goods throughout the chain of distribution in a covert manner.
Laser etching: Laser etching on the holograms can be provided which is permanent impression. The laser etched portion in the hologram adapts to the color of the substrate on which it is pasted. We can Laser Mark Sequential and Fixed numeric, alpha numeric data, date, signatures, images and logos. Variable information is permanently imprinted on the Hologram for customization and higher security. The metallic layer of the Hologram is ‘etched’ in the shape / type of writing required using a high-powered laser. This is a permanent etching & cannot be removed by any means & is therefore tamperproof.
Overprinting: Fixed or Sequential numbering which can be pure numeric or a combination of alphabets and numbers can be printed. Additional information like Batch No., Month and Year of Manufacture etc. can also be printed. Also Images, Linear Bar codes and 2D Bar Codes can be printed. Also, due to lack of time or budget constraints, customers sometimes choose to get Stock Holograms overprinted with their logos / brand name etc. Such Holograms are made using generic security messages such as ‘authentic’, ‘original’, ‘genuine’ etc. which appear in a wallpaper type continuous pattern. No Master Origination costs are involved.
White Code Marking: Fixed information such as a person signature, name, year and codes can be printed. This is a permanent marking.
Scratch Coating: Companies have the option of tying in their promotion schemes with Holographic security by printing hidden codes, images or winning amounts on the Holograms.
A special scratchable coating is applied on a certain part of the Hologram under which variable information can be printed. When the end user of the Hologram scratches the coating, the hidden information will become visible.
