The Foundations of a Banknote

There is so much more to banknotes than meets the eye. Intelligently engineered from start to finish to ensure maximum security and durability. Banknotes are complex and as demonstrated, have a multitude of different considerations that need to be taken into account. At the very heart of a banknote, facilitating every aspect of its functionality, is the paper it is printed on.

At Portals, we have been making banknote paper for over three hundred years. In that time, we have learnt a lot about every aspect of a banknote’s life. From its initial concept to product design, paper manufacture through to print, issuance to the public and into circulation and ultimately, end of life policy. We have learnt that it is essential for a banknote’s security and durability needs to be carefully considered and clearly defined up front and at the very start of the process.
