ABnote North America utilizes a number of security features on every paper order and plastic card order we print. We believe in creating the most secure document possible and as a result, we have assembled the expertise, experience, and resources necessary to meet the challenges of printing secure documents in the 21st century.

CONTRASTING COLORED CORE
A colored core material is laminated between white top and bottom layers. Looking at the edge of the card, the contrasting colored core interior visually dominates. Solid white counterfeit cards would easily stand out.
Very fine printing that is unreadable to the human eye or a copy machine can be easily embedded into the normal graphics design or text, and a deliberate typo can be placed in a text string to identify a counterfeit attempt.
CUSTOM-SECURE BUNDLING & SHRINK WRAPPING
Enables tighter inventory control and controlled flow of plastic cards throughout the entire personalization process and issuance process.
SEALED-SECURE CARDS - AUDITED PACKAGING
Combined with Scanquard individual numerical card control and secure delivery service, this program provides a high level audited card control complete with 100% accountability for all manufacturing, delivery and card issuance.
Removable/reusable plastic label is pre-applied to a plastic card and then personalized. At issuance, the label is removed and applied to a security document to maintain efficient and accurate controls of all issued cards.
A more durable plastic card, designed for 5 -10 years of life, makes card tougher to break or crack.
PANTOGRAPH SIGNATURE PANEL
A destructible multicolor pattern applied over a signature panel (similar to the background of a check) that shows any tampering, erasing or attempts to change a signature.
DESTRUCTABLE SIGNATURE PANELS
Signature panel is a non-permanent design making any tampering by physical or chemical means very noticeable.
An encodable chip applied to a traditional card that stores information unique to the individual.
COLOR-CODED MAGNETIC STRIPES
Using the same high quality encodable media with variable colors such as red, blue or gold stripes to add another level of security.
An encodable media applied to a plastic card that stores a stream of numeric characteristics and numbers unique to that card.
HOLOGRAMS: ON-THE-CARD SURFACE
A special optically reflective pattern applied on the surface of the card that changes images as the card changes angles.
HOLOGRAM SECURITY OVERLAYS
A special optically reflective background pattern applied under the over-laminate on top of the printed copy.
SCRATCH-OFF PANELS AND LABELS
Applying a destructible top coating of other variable printed data to cover data from public viewing (similar to a lottery ticket).
Burning tamper-proof unique Variable data onto the face of a card.
Fasprotek® is a thin security transfer which is applied over variable information of secure documents. Produced by silk screen printing, Fasprotek® effectively protects against alteration by providing a destructible, tamper-evident seal over the personal information.
A highly complex multiple color design patterns generated by mathematics formula. Impossible to reproduce by copy machine or recreate digitally. Can be integrated with existing artwork to create a totally unique background design.
Graphics and text are printed underneath the lamination but invisible to the naked eye…can only be seen when held to a special high intensity light. Also available in machine-readable format for forensic analysis.
Holographic label applied to sleeves, boxes and/or cases. Aggressive adhesive and tamper-proof label easily would identify any tampering with the contents.
A proprietary process ensuring total and absolute accountability as cards are manufactured serialized and encoded. 100% guaranteed inspection for duplicates count, out-of-sequence and readability while generating a deliverable database of used or discarded records for the customer.
Radio Frequency Identification Antenna buried into a plastic card encoded (non-visible to the human eye) with unique identification and capable of being written to for different levels of security access.
Graphics are buried inside the lamination layers unseen to the naked eye…can only be seen when held to a special strong light source.
Scratchproof black bar codes applied on the surface and sealed with a durable high-gloss security coating.
IR - INFRARED SECURITY PRINTING
A non-visible unique copy printed on the plastic cards that can be read with a custom IR reader.
SECURE DELIVERY SERVICE
After the cards are manufactured, transportation to the distribution location is provided by an armored car service.
Using an algorithm applied to a series of numbers to create a unique number sequence for authorization.
SUPER OPAQUE COLORED CORES
A special additive applied to the base plastic stock that allows a card to be detected when placed in a special reader.
Placement of a special panel area that allows the cardholder to apply their fingerprint. This panel is often capped with a security overlay.
RAISED SURFACE IMAGING
Specific raised area on the face of the card that provides visual and touch surface distinction from the card body background.
Printing a duplicate photographic image onto a card in a diffused manner making replication of the imagery very difficult.
