Counterfeit protection

Printed protection against copies

Whether voucherTest badgeDocumentCertificate of authenticityparking permitadmission ticket, or sweepstakes: all these types of printed matter certify rights and values. They therefore require special protection against forgery, misuse and copying.

Unfortunately, most conventional prints can even be deceptively reproduced using a color copier. The financial damage caused by a forgery is often compounded by a loss of customer confidence and negative publicity.

You can avoid all this with printed counterfeit protection features from Simsa!

Types of security features on printed materials

There are 3 categories of security features:

  1. Visible security features, such as hologram effects.
  2. Tangible security features, such as embossing
  3. Hidden security features, such as information that can be detected by a bill validator.

The more features you include, the more troublesome it becomes copying, even for professional counterfeiters. They will then turn to products that are easier to counterfeit.
