What exactly is meant by security print?

Security print is a term that refers to any printing task that meets a high standard of privacy to manage fraud and comply with regulations regarding the protection of information and privacy of documents. Many markets suffer with counterfeiting, so it’s really about helping to secure businesses and organisations from the threat of fraudulent activity, and if you deal with printed materials then it should be a high priority.

Security print methods

As the main objective of security printing is to prevent counterfeiting, forgery and tampering, there are many different methods aimed at counteracting each of these threats. Some of these methods are fairly straightforward, whereas others require sophisticated equipment.

Here are just a few security print methods we offer our clients:
