The holographic cold laminate overlay is a clear optical anti-counterfeiting film with viscous pressure-sensitive adhesive on the back. It’s also known as a self-adhesive hologram overlay or large-size holographic overlay sticker. Even some people call it a peel-and-stick label.
It can be used for various printed plastic cards, membership cards, and staff IDs, and offers an easy way to increase the security and durability of your ID cards without the need for any laminating equipment.
