When it comes to security printing, we can draw on our 155 years of experience printing banknotes. These skills are essential for manufacturing counterfeit-proof checks, duty stamps, gift certificates, and securities. These products are increasingly attracting attention from counterfeiters and the economic damage caused by pirating is huge.
Nowadays, high-quality copies of unsecure documents can easily be made using traditional reproduction devices (e.g. scanners with extremely high resolution, color copiers or small printing presses).
Together with customers, Giesecke & Devrient develops product-specific security printing concepts, carries out analyses into the counterfeit protection of documents, and gives banks, government agencies, and private industry advice on how smart security printing can significantly increase the authenticity and originality of documents and products. For this we use our tried and tested security features, ranging from security paper with watermarks, threads, and fibers through to our innovative security features like PEAK and STEP. That is why our high-quality security printing can be found in many of the products of both public and private institutions.
