Security ID cards
A card with specific security features
The most important feature of a security Id card is that duplication is impossible. There are several security options and levels available. Here are the most current:
Special inks such as the invisible ink, UV inks and optical variable inks. UV-ink enables us to add a password, code or trade mark that will light up with use of ultraviolet light.
Microprinting is the printing of very small fonts that will become visible when using a magnifying glass. These fonts can create stripes in the background that make duplication impossible.
The hologram cannot be copied with any type of printing technique. It is the best optical security. It is possible to create a unique hologram.
Holographic foil makes different parts of a card visible or reflecting. The card will be entirely covered by this foil.
A guilloche is a geometric figure consisting of many fine lines that zigzag, swing or intertwined in a mesh of arches and waves. A guilloche can not be copied and is also used on banknotes.
With laser engraving, text is engraved on a card with the use of laser technology. This technique is slightly more advanced than other personalization options and is mainly used on credit cards.
