Custom Cards with Hologram

A hologram is a striking, three-dimensional image that results from overlaying multiple layers of images. It can display a variety of effects:

  • Motion Animation: Simulation of image movement.
  • Microtext: Text invisible to the naked eye, with font sizes ranging from 20 to 80 µm.
  • Flip-flop Effect: Two different images that change depending on the viewing angle.
  • 2D/3D Effect: A multi-planar image that retains depth of focus.
  • Gradient: Color or brightness shift as it moves.

Thanks to advanced creation techniques, holograms are an effective means of protection against counterfeiting. They are hard to replicate, and any attempt to remove them usually leads to their destruction.

Cards with Holograms

A hologram on a plastic card can fulfill two functions:

  1. Security: The hologram verifies the card’s authenticity, making it harder to counterfeit.
  2. Decoration: Elevates the prestige of the card, making it more visually appealing.

There are different technologies for applying holograms to cards:

Hologram Sticker

This option provides the hologram in sticker form. It can be applied automatically in the print shop or manually by the customer. They are supplied in rolls or sheets, depending on customer preference.

Hot-Stamped Hologram

In this technology, the hologram is embedded in the card through hot stamping. This requires the use of a special matrix and appropriate temperature.

Choosing a Hologram

There are standard hologram designs that are more cost-effective. You can also order holograms with individual designs, but this involves higher costs and longer production times.

For companies requiring unique holograms, consider adding extra printing, such as the company logo or numbering. This way, even a standard hologram can become more unique.
