We understand the need to increase the security of your labels. This is why we have put together a series of security embellishment options that can be included on your labels.
Security can be broken into three parts: traceability, anti-counterfeit, and tamper proof which can be delivered in an overt or covert way.
Introducing the Authenticote Series. Listed below are some of the security options we have available.
Sequential QR code
Tracking of individual QR scans worldwide is possible with the generating of a unique QR code for each individual item of product. So for example if a QR code is scanned multiple times somewhere in the world where your product has not been exported to, you’ll know your product has been counterfeited.
Is a multiple colour layered sequence with a unique numeric code used for traceability. The particles are microscopic and the numeric codes are certified and registered exclusively to individual customers.
There are different methods of scanning the printed area. Some of these options include a microscope, laser pen, audible detector and an element reader.
This has two levels of security:
1. The debossed etched foil feature which can be tailor made to include your branding or an image of your choice.
2. Secure foil which integrates various technologies into the actual foil material.
This is a foil product that integrates various technologies into foil material which is then applied to your label with a hot foil stamp. All the security technologies transfer in the normal hot foil stamping process. The product can be authenticated by an infrared laser light or an audible reader.
Used on bank notes, this feature can be hidden anywhere within your label. It is only visible with an ultraviolet light.
Not only is this a security feature, but it can also be integrated into your label design as an embellishment. This is a clear coating that will colour up under sunlight.
Vanish coat is a feature that works better with a dark coloured label or image. This is because vanish coat prints black and reveals a hidden image underneath it when heat is applied.
Glow in dark
This feature works best over lighter areas. It’s like a clear varnish that will activate in the dark. Available in blue or green when coloured up.
Paua varnish is a lower level security feature, used more specifically to embellish your label. It has a clear holographic finish available in different patterns.
Adding security cuts to a label makes it difficult to remove and reapply to a counterfeit product.
This separate security option can be tailor made with your logo/design. If the label is removed it will leave a tamper evident image on the product.
If you’d like to talk further about these options we have Account Managers in every region.
