Security foil is a security feature that is easy to recognize and suitable for product authentication. It enables flexible designs by combining various metallic effects with color shifts and dynamic motives. The security foil can be combined with all the other security features.

If your design covers the whole card, the security foil will also be colored, but still have the holographic effect.

If you are going to use instant issuing, the cards must be prepared with the security foil before printing.

Microtext generally appears as a solid line. This feature is frequently used on highly secure ID cards. Microtext requires a 600DPI printer. This is a standard process that is done in one print.

The UV print is only visible when using a UV light source. It can contain photos, logos, text or symbols.

The generic holographic film is an extra film, thinner than the laminate, and used for extra protection of the card, and to add a holographic effect on the card. There is no real security added, only the looks.
