Modern and high value security features

Security features must meet increasingly stringent standards. Orell Füssli Ltd. Security Printing achieves this with innovative high-tech solutions and a creative combination of design and security features. The high-quality, modern production techniques and a culture of quality awareness are the basis for faultless products tailored to suit our customer’s requirements. We are constantly developing new security features to better protect banknotes, identification and security documents against forgeries and alterations. Current examples are, among others, the TwinTilt and the Microperf range.

Secure banknotes – uncompromising quality

The key factor in the development of banknotes is security. Only reliable protection creates sustainable trust in a payment method. There should be no compromises. For over 100 years, Orell Füssli Ltd. Security Printing has been committed to ensuring that banknotes are embedded with state of the art and durable security features. We adapt our production processes to suit the protection of each individual banknote. Each country has different demands for security features and these specific characteristics must interact seamlessly with the design elements. The security features must keep pace with the banknote’s long life span in tough circulation conditions. In parallel, forgers are incessantly honing their skills and trying to develop new techniques. Whether watermarks, threads, foil, transparent windows, machine-readable or printed security features, Orell Füssli Ltd. Security Printing combines these numerous high-tech solutions on the banknote to generate effective and long-term protection. Being effective also means that people should be able to recognise the features quickly and check the authenticity of a note in a simple manner, and machines should be able to reliably detect features designed for them.
