With increasing levels of threat to passports and vital record documents, staying ahead of fraudsters is essential. Whilst security features continue to evolve, pushing the boundaries of innovation, one security feature remains universally unchallenged – the cylinder mould watermark.
Offering an unrivalled defence against counterfeiting, combined with a reputation as one of the most publicly recognised and easily authenticated features, it comes as no surprise Interpol continues to recommend the use of the humble watermark. But watermarks have come a long way since their origins over 700 years ago.
This report examines:
- The latest advancements in cylinder mould watermarks; from multi-tonal images through to electrotypes and Textmark™
- How watermark technology has helped improve security paper strength and durability
- What the future holds for the watermark, including looking at the latest global design trends and HD techniques.
