    Using Custom Holograms To Protect Collectables

    Custom holograms allow manufacturers to ensure something collectable is genuine, while remaining cost-efficient. There is usually a master hologram which is safe from counterfeiters or by printing identical custom holograms that have corresponding serial numbers. When it comes to printing two custom holograms, one is adhered to a certificate of authenticity and the other is placed on the item.

    Holograms are incredibly versatile. They are able to be attached to almost any surface which means you are able to protect your product and brand reputation with ease.

    Custom holograms ensure that the person who buys the item is protected and the brand reputation of the manufacturer is too.

    What shape do I need?

    The first choice you make when it comes to custom holograms is choosing the size and style that is suitable for your products. Below are points worth considering when you come to choose your hologram:

    If you’re wanting to put a hologram on a CD case, a long and narrow holographic label is most suitable.Textured surfaces, such as a football, require an oval shape.If you’re after something quick and easy, it is worth considering circular labels. These can work well to protect your certificates from counterfeits.People love holograms and if you want to create a lasting visual impact, a larger hologram is key. Again, something like this can work well to provide the luxury feel you want for degree and performance certificates.Lastly, if you’re concerned that your product is a complex shape and you’re worried that you may not find a suitable hologram, consider laminated hologram labels. You can have one that is perforated at either end so it is able to adhere to something more complex.

    Security comes first

    The benefit of hologram labels is that it’s able to have embedded security information that protects the product and documents. Custom text, logos, and serials numbers can be imprinted using thermal transfer resin ribbon as well as thermal inks.

    This means that you can securely protect your brand and its reputation, as well as deterring counterfeiters. Those that attempt to counterfeit certificates, products will avoid those with holograms as they are nearly impossible to recreate without specialist equipment and the master hologram.

    Custom holograms produced by Hague Australia are tamper evident. This means that if anybody attempts to tamper with, alter or even remove the hologram, it is immediately evident. For example, a security feature we include is a residue that is left behind after someone removes the hologram.

    Finally, by proving that you care about protecting your brand and its products/documents, you are proving to your customers that they can trust you to prevent fraud and have genuine products.
