Security Printing for Medical Brand Graphics
Effective Approaches to Piracy Protection
A small incremental investment in the printing of packaging and labels can return large savings in monitoring for and controlling the pirate manufacture or unapproved distribution of your product. The following are examples of medical brand protection printing:
Font type that is so small that it becomes nearly invisible to the naked eye.
Special, complex line drawings with irregular, complex shapes and patterns that are extremely difficult to copy.
Imaging options that range from sterilization to barcodes to randomly placed micro-dots that are invisible to the naked eye but can be authenticated using a scanner and specific software.
Raised Images & Illustrations
A tactile feature can be introduced to printing products that creates another dimension of brand security.
Thermo and UV-sensitive substrates, reactive anti-fraud chemicals, watermarks holograms, embedded threads, and foils are just a few of he security substrate options available.
Allows customers to include text, messages, or shapes that are visible only under UV light.
