Nowadays, identity documents are linked to personal credit, it’s a valid proof of personal identity. However, With the rapid development of high-tech, more and more lawbreakers create fake identification cards to do illegal trade.
This is dangerous for individuals and the country. How to ensure identity document security is vital for both an individual and a country. Presently, holographic overlay film produced by Suzhou Image can tackle these issues to some extent.
The holographic film overlay contains different security features that can be incorporated into ID cards, paper documents, badges, and licenses. And those security features are made by using the latest lithography equipment, making them very hard to copy.
To further enhance security, some custom information (such as logos, texts, and graphics) can be embedded in the transparent hologram overlay.
Benefits of using transparent holographic film overlay
It is known to all that the application of the transparent holographic film overlay can effectively protect identity documents from falsification and tampering. Apart from this, it has other advantages.
As far as I know, most ID documents have NFC chips, which can help inspectors quickly link to personal data. Combined with the high transparency hologram effect, it is easier to determine whether the card is genuine, or whether any information on the card has been tampered with and does not interfere with the NFC signal.
They are more weather-proofed with numerous counterfeit protection features to withstand transportation wear or encasements.
How does holographic foil overlay secure your identity documents?
Generally speaking, the anti-counterfeiting method used in the design of holographic foil overlays is divided into two kinds, security protection in visual perception and technical level.
Security protection in visual perception
It means security features can be recognized by the naked eye, including your signature, watermarks, optical anti-fake, OVI printing, etc. However, optical security solutions are the most popular with various documents, such as passports, identification cards, event ID badges, etc. They are attractive, easy to authenticate, and difficult to counterfeit.
Anti-fake at Technical level
Technical anti-fake which is professionally called covert, covert, and forensic security features. It’s applicable to major projects that require higher security performance, such as passports, driver’s licenses, identification cards, bank cards, etc.
Covert features and hidden information will be seen by special devices or special angles, such as magnifying glass, and UV light. Forensic features require specialized technicians to verify, are extremely difficult to copy, and then take the security of your documents to a higher level.
