Tamper–evident holograms are becoming more popular in different industries owing to the rising demand for security features in primary and secondary product packaging. Often used as protective seals for products, these holograms provide an indication of product warranty. With so many options available in the market, choosing the right hologram can be a tough task.
To make the task easier for you, we talked to industry experts about three tips on choosing the best tamper-evident holograms.
1. Ensure you are choosing the right tamper pattern
Tamper evident holograms commonly come in two variants — i) tamper text– and ii) tamper pattern–evident.
Tamper text evident holograms leave behind a text message on the substrate when peeled or tampered with. The text message can be customized as per client requirement or you may very well opt for generic ‘VOID’ tamper text holograms.
Pattern text evident usually come in honeycomb patterns but again can be customized as per your requirement. The choice of variants depends on the shape, size, and material of your products.
2. Specify whether you require security cuts
Tamper evident holograms can also come with the security cuts tamper feature. Holograms with security cuts self-destruct along with specified patterns if tampered with. The number and position of security cuts can be customized as per your needs.
3. Enquire if you can get QR-code–enabled features
An additional but optional benefit of tamper-evident holograms is supply chain visibility. With digital product authentication, your customers can instantly verify the genuineness of your products.
Available at a fraction of additional cost, this value-added benefit can guarantee the safety of your products from duplication and can be a valuable addition to your security packaging.
