How custom holograms can protect security documents

The printing of identification documents such as ID cards or passports can be a costly process, however, the cost that results from document fraud is far greater. Discover below how custom holograms can protect security documents and combat the damage suffered by businesses and charities among other organisations.

Cost-effective and custom

A simple, cost-effective holographic label can be a powerful tool in the war against counterfeiting. The technology itself may be over 70 years old but holograms are still an incredibly effective way to safeguard critical personal data against tampering, altering, forgery and imitation.

Modern techniques mean that custom holograms can be quickly recognised but are impossible to accurately forge. The built-in details of the hologram cannot be copied, protecting the variable information on the document.

It’s no wonder then that the majority of security documents now feature holograms. The protection custom holograms provide relies on the continuous innovation, invention and evolution of different holographic techniques. Optical effects and material science techniques are often developed to ensure their effectiveness, while the production process is regularly audited to guarantee the hologram meets the rigorous demands of being used for long periods of time.
