Our securities

In order to guarantee the fiduciary security of your documents and to avoid their falsification, technical characteristics are proposed to you:

Paper characteristics

Booklet paper will offer appropriate ruggedness and absorption characteristics and may contain fibers with fluorescent properties. These fibers can be visible (colored fibers) or invisible under normal light. The pages can be assembled by a sewing thread that reacts in one or more colors under UV exposure.

Optically variable ink (OVI)

Printing ink containing optically variable pigments, which will show large color shifts (strong variations in color) depending on the angle of observation or lighting.

Photochromic ink

Pattern appearing under the sunlight, remaining observable some time after exposure.

Fluorescent UV ink

Ink containing fluorescent substances (pigments) which is used to print text or patterns.


Fine (intricate) designs consisting of interlaced continuous lines arranged in geometric patterns with the aim of raising the barrier for re-origination and reproduction.


Three-dimensional image (with relief effect) and changing appearance depending on the tilt of the document.

Rainbow coloring

Coloring process used to protect security documents against color separation or copying, by subtly merging colors into each other resulting in a gradual color change.


Lines or patterns made up of very small letters or numbers that are barely perceptible to the eye.

Numbering (black laser or inkjet)

A unique sequential number printed on or perforated in a document and used for identification. This uniqueness ensures the traceability of the document in case of loss or theft.

Die cut security

Small form of printed cut of different themes, causing a tear if one tries to take off the paper on which it is.

Chemical markers

Safety reactants (acids, alkalis, bleaches) as protection against attempts at falsification by chemical erasure.
