Text or microstructure which appears as a solid line to the naked eye. This feature is frequently used on highly secure ID cards.

Ultraviolet print 
UV print is not detectable to the naked eye and it is only visible when using a UV light source when issuing high-security cards. UV print often contains photos, logos, text, or symbols.

Ghost Image 
Ghost Image is the portrait of the applicant and is generated from lines of micro text. It overlaps the mini portrait in black white and can be placed at any position on the card.

Security Foil
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.

Standard laminate 
Standard laminate protects your card from daily wear and increases the lifetime of your card. It will appear as almost invisible symbols on the card.

Customized laminate 
Similar to the standard laminate, the customized version lets you select your own choice of logo and/or symbols which will be printed, almost invisibly, on the card.
