Security Printing techniques are crucial to modern effective security documents. Security Foiling Limited can offer a ‘total service’ of document design and production.
The selection and choice of features is directly connected to the type of security threat that each potential customer faces and therefore, diagnosis we offer a confidential service to discuss which security features will offer the appropriate level of protection.
The most effective and therefore secure documents are created using a multi-layered approach to security. By selecting the most important visible (overt) and invisible (covert) features to cover specific or perceived threats we aim to provide the most appropriately advanced and secure document. Some Invisible features require special equipment for verification and are therefore only suitable in applications where there is appropriate time and facilities to check the document.
A constant review of the documents security features ensures that the document remains relevant to current threats and trends in document security.
