  • SecureGuard™ DOCUMENT SECURITY FEATURES ..... and How They Work


    HIDDEN MESSAGE TECHNOLOGYTM Security Feature

    The "HIDDEN MESSAGE TECHNOLOGY" feature is the most common and least dependable security feature. Words such as VOID and UNAUTHORIZED COPY should appear when a document is copied. However due to changing copier and scanner technology, you may find that a copy can be made without the hidden message appearing. This feature DOES NOT WORK 100% of the time on 100% of the copiers.
  • Warning - Unauthorized Copy

    When photo copied on most copiers, the words
    "WARNING" "UNAUTHORIZED" "COPY"
    appear on the copy.

    Other words may be hidden in the background.
    VOID - COPY - WARNING - COMPANY NAME - WORDS IN FOREIGN LANGUAGES
    represent a few examples

    Note ~ As with all Document Security Paper, anything printed on the paper is still legible on the copy.


  • It is important to note that copier technology is ever changing.
    Thus messages hidden on Document Security Paper will appear most of the time.
    However messages cannot be guaranteed to appear 100% of the time when used with all copiers or scanners.
    VOID-2 Technology

    This technology incorporates the use of TWO hidden messages.

    When lightening the image on the photo copier, the Large VOID appears on the photocopy.
    Should you darken the image, the small VOID appears.

    Look closely ......
    you will see BOTH the LARGE and the SMALL "VOID" on the photo copy shown below



    ONCE AGAIN IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE that copier technology is ever changing.
    Thus messages hidden on Document Security Paper will appear most of the time.
    However messages cannot be guaranteed to appear 100% of the time when used with all copiers or scanners.

    IT'S A FACT !
    Facts and Limitations relative to
    Document Security Paper Features

    • "Hidden Message VOID technology" does not work 100% of the time on 100% of copiers (standard and color copiers) and scanners.

    • To make the void appear, often the pantograph is printed where by the "VOID" may be seen lightly in the background on the original.

    • When a prescription pad is cut using a guillotine cutter from the four-up sheet on which it was printed, the distance from the edge of the sheet to the White Reverse Rx may vary slightly.

    • When printing with an offset press, depending upon ink flow, the intensity of the blue color may vary between production runs as well as within the same production run.

    • A slight variation in the intensity of the colored background will impact of how the hidden message will appear when copied.

    • The manufacturers of high quality copiers such as Xerox and Canon are in the business of making "accurate copies," exact reproductions of an original. Should the "VOID" appear, the copy is no longer an "exact" reproduction. Rather it is a "bad copy."
