Holographic and colour-switch foils
Holographic and colour-switch foils have long been a requirement on a variety of government documents (banknotes, excise stamps, forms and certificates) as valuable overt/covert security elements. Andrews & Wykeham supplies holographic and colour-switch security foils for document authentication. Our foils ensure quick and reliable application on most types of hot-stamping machinery, both as stripe and patch, wallpaper or registered. Our high-resolution holographic images offer overt, covert and forensic features. Foils are available in metallised, pattern-demetallised and HRI transparent ranges and feature high-security Synthegram® origination.
Signature protection labels
Protecting an authorised signature on a document such as a power of attorney, transfer form or title certificate is important for preventing document fraud. A frangible HRI (high-refractive index) or partially-demetallised holographic label applied over a signature reliably protects the genuine signature from fraudulent alteration. Our signature protection labels include sophisticated holographic images, print features, detector-readable moiré coding and hi-tech sequential numbering and barcodes applied using laser evaporation technology. These labels can also be used for protecting other sensitive data, such as dates and amounts on financial documents and contracts.
Security printed documents
We offer a wide range of security printed documents featuring high-security papers (watermarks, fibres, planchettes, sensitisation), security-printed elements, hot-stamped holographic foils and secure sequential numbering. These documents include certificates, cheques, vouchers, bonds, title deeds, vehicle registration documents etc. Document formats vary from single sheets to stitched booklets.
