In the world of security printing, the words ‘digital printing’ are sometimes used to refer to a forgery or technology used by non-professionals. Security printing has always used state-of-the-art technology and, even today, in this digital/IT world, new developments in security printing are still continuous.
Some of the biggest requests from end users, besides the need for a high level of protection and simple authentication methods, are requests for flexibility, short delivery times and small production batches. So, how we can meet all of these requests with a cost-effective solution that doesn’t make compromises.
The answer lies in digital security printing, but we also need to understand the challenges that come with this, such as:
production workflow, including the physical security of products; the need to comply with the same standards that exist for ID documents and analogue security printing, authentication and the education of personnel, how to authenticate the products… and many more.
