Safety paper: anti-copy, anti-scan protection

February 2005 Products

Pyrotec Product Security Solutions provides a range of technologies to protect your valuable documents and products from being counterfeited, forged or tampered with.

In business today, it is more important than ever to protect your printed documents. The continual advancement of personal computer equipment and photocopiers has made counterfeiting easier and more affordable to the average person. (There are over one million casual counterfeiters in the US alone.)

Safety Paper has hidden messages that appear when copied or scanned preventing unauthorised duplication of your printed materials.

The standard message available is VOID with a light blue background.

Custom messages (eg, Unauthorised Copy, Cancelled etc) and other colours are available on request.

In addition, the verifier lens is used with Safety Paper to view the validity of an original document. When passed over the paper the hidden message appears, preventing casual counterfeiting and fraud.

Possible uses for Safety Paper include prescription pads, gift certificates, school transcripts, cheques, ID cards, labels, certifications, proposals, original music, examinations, copyrighted material, coupons, manuals, packaging, licences, business plans, designs, schematics, tickets, receipts and tags.
