COVERT ANTI-COUNTERFEITING AND AUTHENTICATION SOLUTION FOR PRINTED PRODUCTS

AlpVision Cryptoglyph® is a digital and invisible anti-counterfeiting solution dedicated to printed products. Verification of a protected product’s authenticity is done with a smartphone application. The Cryptoglyph® is applied during the printing process using regular ink or varnish and standard printing processes.

The patented Cryptoglyph technology is simple, though effective, and is based on the addition of thousands of covert micro holes to the varnish or to solid colors of the printed product.

PROTECT ANY PRINTED PRODUCT

This technology is well suited for all printed products such as: labels, folding cartons, leaflets, documents, banknotes, cans, tin capsules, stick packs, and blister packs. The technology is industrially proven and is particularly appropriate for large scale deployments worldwide. Moreover, the Cryptoglyph is especially suitable for large production volumes.

Simple and industry proven, AlpVision Cryptoglyph protects over 30 billion items of product each year across industries worldwide. It is commercialized under license agreements as an entirely customizable, turnkey, computerized system.

A SMARTPHONE AS DETECTION DEVICE

A dedicated smartphone application verifies the authenticity of a product. Available on iOS and Android, and working in real-time, the verification usually takes less than 3 seconds, including the time to pick up the product and position the smartphone over it. The AlpVision authentication technology can even be integrated into existing smartphone apps.

IMPLEMENTATION AT NO EXTRA COST

During the printing process by print suppliers, the Cryptoglyph adds thousands of invisible micro holes (20-60 microns), pseudo-randomly distributed, to the entire varnish layer or in the solid color areas of the printout. Due to its digital nature, the Cryptoglyph can be easily integrated into any printing process at zero additional production cost. It works with standard printing processes such as:

  • Offset
  • Flexography
  • Rotogravure
  • Laser
  • Inkjet
