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
