Why You Should Use SecureCardDesigns.com?

 

With 3 generations of card manufacturing experience, we evolve quicker than the industry.

 

From Polyester 3/4 part cards & Kodak cameras to dye-sublimation PVC/Composite cards, we have led the industry in innovation. Today, we welcome laser engravers, Polycarbonate cards and secure designs. From design to production, let us help you layer the card with features that are a counterfeiter's nightmare.

Security features to enhance your card design

 

Below are some examples of features that will protect your identity, facility, event and lives.

Pantone Colors

 

The logic is sound. Scanners & copiers import images in CMYK, RGB or grayscale. Printing in Pantone colors creates additional dots when the images are scanned in and destroys native elements.

IR Reactive Inks

 

Inks that react to infrared light in a whole range of different ways, providing a highly secure feature to your card. The ink appears normal to a countefeiter yet can dissapear under an IR light. IR lights are also available for sale. Currency-grade.

Split-Fountain Printing

 

Using a single printing plate, this highly secure process allows for multiple colors (and blending) to be printed on one press unit. Incredibly destructive to counterfeiting as only a few US plastic card facilities have presses (and pressmen) that have the know-how. Currency-grade.

MLI

 

Multiple Laser Image is the newest feature to hit the card market and we are proud to offer it. Please view the video above.

Optically Variable Inks

 

Easily verified by users without any tools required, these inks are silkscreened and change colors. Colors available are based on inventory.

Currency-grade.

Guilloche/Fine-line Printing

 

Custom user-generated line patterns that create havoc for a counterfeiter (as they have to re-create the pattern & clipping masks). These line segments make up the majority of secure card backgrounds due to the fact that desktop printers cannot image them. PMS colors are a must. 

Numismatics


Numismatic "relief" effects are impossible to implement without currency design software. Line work bends into a "relief" that forms an image or letter(s).

Currency-grade.

Watermark

 

Core Watermark. Non-printed technique/feature that requires a counterfeiter to go into card manufacturing to defeat. Not available in Polycarbonate or combined with RFID.

Currency-grade.

UV Ink

 

UV has become a defacto standard in the US and is easily compromised via desktop ribbon printers. If you are considering UV, we recommend red or a spit-fountain.

Microfine Printing


Small text (1pt or smaller) that is often blended into a design. Most microfine printing is not seen with the eye and requires a loupe to authenticate. Loupes are available for sale.

Currency-grade.

Securing Variable Data

 

Images, especially the face, should have over-lapping, pre-printed, images.  Laser Engraving is optimal but background elements can help protect against photo substitution.

Line Raster

 

A perfect example of securing images. This concept also cannot be done without expensive currency-grade software. Images should never be printed using dots. This is incredibly hard to counterfeit.

AuthentiGuard™ Prism

 

Hidden text or images built into a color tint. Authenticated via a lenticular Viewer or phone app.. Currency-grade.

AuthentiGuard™ Pantograph 4000

 

Anti-copy/Anti-scan disruptive pattern built into a card design. As cards are scanned first to counterfeit, this feature is "peace of mind" to ensure the original isn't altered in any way.

AuthentiGuard™ BlockOut

 

Currency-grade feature that is built into the card design that renders cards "scan proof." Only high-end scanners/copiers capable of counterfeiting have the software to detect this feature. Another layer of "peace of mind."
