Under Lock and Key
When you are a child you want to be protected from the monsters in your closet, the bullies at the playground and the things that go bump in the night.
Not much changes as adults except the monsters you worry about steal your identity or pass bad checks. Some of the products and advice shown here can help with what scars the older crowd.
A Paper's DNA Never Lies
Cascades' Ghost Reactor is an innovative security feature embedded in the paper. The process involves an invisible pigment with a unique structure, much like DNA. The pigment is added during production and mixed in with the fibers, providing the paper with a unique identity, preventing duplication. Ghost Reactor easily can be validated by using an infrared tracer that instantly validates the authenticity of a document upon contact. It is suitable for Visa, tax stamps, the lottery and ID documents.

Got It Covered
"Security labels should be used when your customer's product needs an added measure of authenticating, brand integrity and added security measures. Consumers who need security labels are often in the fields of food and beverage, retail, medical, pharmaceutical, computer software and packaging. You're not only selling the label but the features it can provide: tracking, inventory, tamper evidence and coupon redemption. [For example,] when a customer wants to promote a new product using coupons or game pieces the labels would need to be produced in a way that could not be duplicated using some form of a security label."

"Add RFID inlays into your labels, tickets and tags with the TamarackP500 RFID. The RFID inlay can be programmed with data to track, identify and/or authenticate the tagged product. Companies are justifying the implementation of RFID-enabled products through increased retail sales by reducing out-of-stock items, less product waste due to more efficient rotation of items such as pharmaceuticals which are sensitive to expiration dates, savings resulting from automation of product inventory control and warehousing and protection from counterfeiting by using the RFID device as a security feature."
