Image change depending on the viewing angle

Technology overview

Different shiny images appear when the viewing angle is changed. The images cannot be reproduced with a copying machine or an ordinary commercial printer. This technology is also effective in deterring computer-assisted counterfeiting.

MetallicView is applicable with all printing methods including offset and gravure to produce shiny metallic images. Authentication with this method does not require special devices, as the effects can be seen by merely viewing the printed material from an oblique angle.

Product examples

This method's outstanding cost-effectiveness makes it suitable for anti-counterfeiting measures in membership cards and certificates issued by local governments.
