PACKAGING AND LABEL PROTECTION
COVERT ANTI-COUNTERFEITING AND AUTHENTICATION SOLUTION FOR PRINTED PRODUCTS
AlpVision Cryptoglyph® is a digital and invisible anti-counterfeiting solution for packaging and label protection dedicated to printed products. A protected product’s authenticity is verified 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, yet 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 packaging and label protection 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 for packaging and label protection, 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.

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:
