CardLogix Holofoil Cards are plastic cards with built-in 2D holograms constructed with commercial grade substrates compliant with ISO-7810, ID1 standards. The cards include impressive clear, iridescent two dimensional holographic images with a growing list of unique designs from which to choose. CardLogix Holofoil Cards are a cost-effective and non-peelable alternative to holographic laminates while providing increased security and no damage to print heads. The holograms found in a CardLogix Holofoil Card are subcutaneous to the card’s surface, providing a printable security base card and a smart foundation for any of your ID Credential programs, including civil ID cards, national ID cards, military ID cards, voter ID cards, driver’s licenses, PIV, and physical access cards. CardLogix Holofoil Cards can be purchased off-the-shelf or they can be built to order with your custom designs. The card can be combined with any of CardLogix’ selection of ReadyStart™ Secure Cards, and they are designed to work with CardLogix Card Encoding Engine™ Smart Card Personalization Software.

Printable Plastic Security Base Card—No Damage to Print Heads

Unlike other holofoil cards that include one generic hot-stamp over the card’s surface, the CardLogix Holofoil Cards are already constructed to include multiple holographic images subcutaneous to the plastic card’s upper layer. This allows for a smooth card surface for which a card issuer may personalize without causing any damage to the print heads.

Impossible to Peel Off—Higher Security than Holographic Laminates

The problem with laminate patches that contain holograms is that with proper equipment and the right heat settings, it is possible to remove and replace the laminate patch onto another card. This poses a grave risk to your ID Credential’s physical card security. With the CardLogix Holofoil Card, it is virtually impossible to peel the holographic images from the card, as they are integral to the card body.

Increase ID Card Security—The Cost-Effective Way

Improving your ID Credential’s physical security is a critical step in designing an effective ID card program to keep personnel and belongings safe. Sometimes this step takes a backseat due to the high costs associated with implementing effective card security graphic features. With the CardLogix’ Holofoil Card, you can achieve high physical security at a fraction of a cost to alternatives. The CardLogix Holofoil Card is the easiest and most affordable option for increasing your ID card’s physical security, thereby eliminating fraudulent card duplication and preventing unauthorized personnel to pass as the authorized card holder.

Safeguard Your Personnel and Assets Sooner

Designing custom artwork can be costly and time consuming, so can waiting for the cards’ production. CardLogix Holofoil Cards enable a rapid start in the creation of highly secure ID cards by allowing you to choose from a growing list of pre-designed artwork and pre-constructed PVC or other plastic cards, shipped immediately to your door, for instant photo ID, eID or smart card ID Credential personalization.

For additional physical ID card security, combine your Holofoil Card with one of CardLogix’ ReadyStart™ Secure Card pre-drafted designs, which include a combination of ultra-high resolution security printing, such as Guilloche, Microtext, UV, CardLogix Hidden Validator® images, and Intentional errors. Choose from many designs and layouts for common ID applications such as civil ID, national ID, voter ID, military ID, First Responder, Healthcare, and physical access cards.

Easy ID Card Personalization with Card Encoding Engine™ Card Printer Software

CardLogix Holofoil Cards provide a secure foundation for eID card and smart card personalization, and they are designed to work with CardLogix Card Encoding Engine™. Card Encoding Engine is configured with a pull down menu of Holofoil graphic background templates that match your Holofoil Card design, providing the visibility to add graphic designs and text where you want them on your card. The card printer software allows for easy card personalization over your Holofoil Card, which may include an embedded smart card chip and/or magnetic stripes (magstripe).
