IDs offer just one more layer of security to your overall security plan. They can be simply a visual security tool or, with programmable cards, they can also help with physical and logical access, as well as other transactions. Either way, there are several options to add to your ID to make alteration or duplication more difficult.
Card stock with Visual Security Elements:
As the threat of fraud, theft and forgery looms large, today’s counterfeiters are more advanced than ever. The proliferation of digital printing technology has made forging legitimate-looking ID cards all too easy.
That’s why you need HID Global. Visual Security Solutions® are available including:
- Holographic Foil Cards – Custom-designed, metallized or translucent holograms are layered inside of the card, just below the surface to add a custom layer of security.
- Holographic Overlaminates (laminator required) – Lamination provides a layer of durability and security, especially with a custom laminate that is very difficult to replicate.
- Holographic HDP® Film (for use with retransfer printer) – Custom HDP film offers a layer of added security to your card design.
Fluorescent Printing (UV)
Most card manufactures offer ribbons which include a fluorescent panel for printing elements on the card that are only visible under UV light. Fluorescent printing makes duplicating and forgery more difficult.
