Guilloché patterns are spirograph-like curves that frame a curve within an inner and outer envelope curve. They are used on banknotes, securities, and passports worldwide for added security against counterfeiting


Similar to currency watermarks, this DSS patented feature places simple logos, state seals and/or text into the card core. Our watermark can only be seen with a light source. Ideal for high security applications as this is NOT a printed feature.


UV Ink can be printed onto any card formulation as a covert security feature that can be viewed under a black light source. Short, Mid and Long Wave spectrum is available in Blue/Green, Yellow or Red. Dual-fluorescence is available for high-security applications.


Copy and scan-resistant technology patented by DSS. This feature validates authenticity by creating a covert graphic that is not visible to the naked eye. Can also be read via phone app. View this feature via a phone or tablet! Watch here: link

AuthentiGuard Prism

Small text printed with intentional errors (for authentication) that cannot be duplicated via most output devices (e.g. desk top printers, copiers or dyesub printers). This text is often blended into card artwork.


Color-shifting inks reflect various wavelengths in white light differently, depending on the angle of incidence to the surface. An unaided eye will observe this effect as a change of color while the viewing angle is changed. A color copier or scanner can copy a document only at one fixed angle relative to the document’s surface.


Thermochromic Ink

AuthentiGuard Digital Solutions

A means by which two different colored inks are printed simultaneously on an offset lithographic press, used for spot color printing.

Split-fountain printing

Thermochromic inks or dyes are temperature sensitive compounds, developed in the 1970s, that temporarily change color with exposure to heat.

The AuthentiMark team customizes a consumer smartphone application for you or works with your developers to integrate this app functionality into your current consumer application. When consumers see your custom symbol, shape, image or word AuthentiMark on product packaging or an advertisement they can read it using the application. The consumer read of the AuthentiMark unlocks hundreds of possibilities for the brand owners and consumers alike. This information is collected in real-time, eliminating any fragmentation of reporting.
