New feature to our extensive plastic card portfolio: UV Ink- for enhanced security

The UV Ink is a popular feature on plastic cards such as Access Control, Event Passes, Business cards and Photo ID Cards for security reasons.

The ultra violet ink is not visible to the human eye; it can only be detected when the card is placed under a UV lamp.

The invisible ink can be applied to the plastic core of the card in the form of text, logo, password or code.

A plastic card with UV Ink is very difficult to recreate, due to the specialist ink and without access to appropriate industrial printing machines. In addition, somebody who tries to replicate the card might not know that the UV Ink is there and in consequence fraudulent cards could be easily spotted as they would be missing this security feature.

Some of the benefits:

  • These cards can be printed on digital printing presses, allowing for small volumes of cards to be printed as well as larger quantities.
  • UV Ink reduces VOC emissions into the environment compared to other printing processes.
  • These plastic cards can be easily personalised, including names, dates and venue as well as individual photos of delegates.
  • UV Ink makes the cards unique and difficult to replicate, adding an extra security layer to the cards.
