In an era where information security is paramount, Uniprint Global’s security printing team understands the critical need to protect printed documents. We’re committed to helping our clients safeguard their sensitive and valuable printed materials against threats like counterfeiting and tampering.

The Rising Threat of Document Fraud

Document fraud is an escalating issue globally.

According to the International Chamber of Commerce, counterfeit goods, including fraudulent documents, average between 5 and 7% of the total value ($24.9 trillion) of world trade. This alarming trend underlines the urgency for robust security measures in security printed documents.

Key Security Features for Printed Documents

To combat fraud, incorporating advanced security features into printed documents is crucial. Uniprint Global recommends several essential security measures:

  • Watermarks – Watermarks are an age-old yet effective security feature. These subtle designs, visible only when held against light, are nearly impossible to replicate accurately. They provide a first line of defence against counterfeiting.
  • Security Ink – Security inks, such as UV fluorescent inks, react under specific lighting conditions, revealing hidden features or text. They are a discreet yet powerful way to verify the authenticity of a document.
  • Holographic Foils – Holographic foils are increasingly popular in high-security documents. They are not only visually striking but also extremely difficult to replicate. According to a report by the Anti-Counterfeiting Group, holography has significantly reduced counterfeit incidents in the sectors it’s employed.
  • Customised Security Solutions – Each organisation has unique security needs. At Uniprint Global, we tailor security solutions to fit our clients’ specific requirements, ensuring the highest level of protection for their documents. From intricate custom designs to specialised inks and materials, we ensure that each security feature aligns with the client’s objectives.
  • Technological Integration – Incorporating technology like QR codes or barcodes into printed documents adds an extra layer of security. These features can link to digital systems for instant verification and tracking, enhancing security and making document validation more efficient.
  • Continuous Innovation – The battle against document fraud is ongoing. We’re committed to continuous research and development to stay ahead of counterfeiters. By adopting the latest technologies and security trends, we ensure our clients’ documents remain secure against evolving threats.
