Changeable Laser Image (CLI) /Multiple Laser Image (MLI) are floating images, which show different graphics depending on the viewing angle. In order to introduce this security feature, the card body needs to be prepared with the called “CLI/MLI window”. During the card personalization process, the laser prints the text (or image) through the window at two different angles. As a result, the information contained in that specially prepared area of the card body is visible when titling the card horizontally (X-axle) – otherwise, ‘MLI’ – or vertically (Y-axle) – otherwise ‘CLI’ – showing different information.
Variable Microtext (very high resolution printing). Thanks to the narrowness of laser beams they can be focused into a very tiny spot, which allows us to print with a resolution of up to 2400 dpi and print real microtext (around 0.3 mm. characters). It’s not legible to the naked eye; a magnifying lens or glass is needed to identify and read it. As the microtext is introduced during the personalization process, it can also incorporate various information elements.
High resolution-gray scale picture. The laser provides exceptionally high resolution print, which can produce detailed, gray scale, pictures in combination with the color Photo ID, typically printed using dye-sublimation retransfer technology.
Laser Protected Image (LPI®) 1. Adds a grayscale photo ID engraved into the card body (typically behind the color photo ID). This extends the lifespan of the card in case the color ID photo is damaged over time and prevents anyone from altering or manipulating the photo ID.
Invisible Personal Information (IPI™)2 This technology encodes personal data (name, numbers etc.) in the portrait. IPI™ directly links the photograph both to the document holder and to the document. Personal data is invisible to the human eye; the authorized persons can easily verify the authenticity with a dedicated decoding lens.
Ghost Image with Letter ScreenTM 2 The portrait of the applicant is generated from lines of microtext. The microtext is personalized, citing applicant’s name, document number and/or other personal data. The personalized text lines fill the entire image. There are slight differences in character size and thickness in order to present the portrait coherently and clearly. The LetterScreen™ has been the ultimate ghost image, enhancing the security by directly linking the portrait to the owner and the document itself.
Tactile effect. The intensity and angle of the laser beam can be adapted to produce different effects on the surface of the card. Positive embossing (or relief) is one of them, allowing visual and tactile verification of the information and can be applied to text and pictograms. Printing Braille on the surface of the card is a good example.
Tru/WindowTM LOCK3. This visual security feature is based on a sophisticated laser ablation process on a metallic foil that has been integrated into the polycarbonate card over a transparent window. In the case of Tru/WindowTM LOCKTM, a ghost image of the cardholder’s portrait is engraved with the laser into the metal foil by removing some of the metal, and creating transparent, or white, space. Where there is no engraving, the area is dark so that together, they form the portrait, (the opposite of the laser engraving process, which creates black area). The cardholder’s ghost image, which matches the larger laser engraved portrait, prevents manipulation after its issuance; it would be immediately apparent that the two portraits were not the same, making forgery or fraudulent manipulation easily detectable.
FUSE-ID® 1 As in the previous technology, most of the times security means redundancy, and this is also what FUSE-ID® provides. Personal information such as the document holder’s portrait, (or ‘primary image’) is protected by adding a copy known as the ‘secondary image’ to the card at another location. Both images are laser-engraved but in this case, the secondary image is engraved in an area printed with optically variable ink (OVI). The OVI printed area with the secondary image works in reverse: the laser energy is used to lighten the dark color of the ink. In other words, the image on the OVI area is made by lasering out the light areas and leaving the dark outline untouched. As earlier, this prevents manipulation after issuance by making forgery or fraudulent alteration easily detected.
