Choosing a hologram supplier/manufacturer for your products can be a herculean task. Hologram sticker manufacturing involves sophisticated optical, printing, and digital technologies which are difficult to understand. Your packaging or product manager might not be aware of all the points and can buy the wrong product. Lack of information can make it tough to select the best hologram manufacturer/supplier. Isn’t it?
In this blog, we have discussed 5 crucial points which you should always consider before choosing a hologram manufacturer. Our 30 years of expertise in hologram production & more than 10,000 satisfied clients worldwide in 90+ countries make us experts in holographic security packaging technology and therefore we are here to help you. Now, let’s discuss the points one by one.
1. Use of nano optical image holograms for unbreachable security
Nano security features & images are unimaginably small, that’s 1 billionth of a meter. Holograms with images on the nanoscale stand no chance of copying, even with the most advanced machines. You must check if your hologram supplier is capable to provide nano-optical image (NOI) holograms and has master origination capabilities for the same. That’s the surest & smartest way to prevent duplication and stay ahead of counterfeiters in this age.
“Using latest 4th generation NOI security holograms secure your products from even the smartest criminals and increases your customer trust. Remember, upgrading packaging security is the best way to secure products and supply chain.”
2. Custom artwork, designs, and patterns for high visual appeal
Check if your hologram manufacturer is capable to provide custom artworks, designs, and patterns in the holograms. This increases graphic opportunities in the holograms of your choice. A reputed hologram supplier will always say yes to your requirements related to custom artwork, brand name, logos, or graphics of your choice.
3. Integration of QR codes for implementing digital solutions
Enquire if your supplier can provide QR code printing on holograms. Also, check if it can provide different supply chain functions like product authentication and track & trace. Your hologram supplier should have the infrastructure for in-house software development. Check if it is CMMI L3 certified and abides by the latest ISO certifications. Organizational maturity is must for developing & integrating digital solutions in physical packaging.
4. Use of high-quality PET films, adhesives, and liners for durability
Always check the quality of hologram stickers before finalizing the deal. Ask for samples of the hologram stickers that you want. This will give you an idea of the raw material quality. Hologram stickers that can’t stand abrasion and wear and tear in the transit are of no use. Also, check the adhesive strength of your stickers. Hologram stickers with poor adhesive can’t serve their true purpose.
“Compromising on hologram quality is a big mistake which can lead to decrease in sales and poor brand image”
5. Complete hologram stickers production under one roof
Your hologram stickers need to be delivered on time. Any delay in the hologram supply will affect the timely delivery of your products to the warehouse, dealer, and end consumer. Such a problem arises when the packaging/hologram supplier does not have a complete production infrastructure under one roof. In such situations, the work is generally outsourced to a third-party vendor. This leads to coordination issues and untimely production and integration. Also, check if your hologram supplier can integrate digital QR codes on your production line. This will save you precious time.
