Secure by Design
SPS wrote the key standards for design for secure cheques and other products.
Our design philosophy is as follows:
- Personalisation to complement customer’s brand values
- Layered security measures
- Integration of security design with track and trace technologies
- Maximise use of non-visible security design measures
- A quality look and feel to the product
Key Innovations and Patents
For over 30 years, SPS has been focused on continuous improvement in production engineering and design to ensure our clients have the most cost-effective solution to meet their needs. We have developed a variety of unique printing techniques to provide secure solutions for governments, industry and commerce throughout the world. These developments offer their customers maximum protection against counterfeit alteration fraud.
Over the years, extensive research and development programs have enabled SPS to develop a production process that produces complete, high-specification documents at cost effective prices. The highly trained operators at SPS execute our ‘one-pass production’ process to feed reels of security paper into the printing press at one end of the press manufacturing our patented innovations, holograms, security print and track and trace systems all in one pass.
This patented design technique protects the ‘infill’ of a document from fraudulent alterations and once it’s damaged, it is impossible to accurately reinstate. This requires specialized security graphic software and our knowledgeable team of graphic designers with years of security expertise.
STEALTH SECURITY PRINT
A patent-protected, covert security feature that entails black IR ink disappearing under a reader to reveal covert text.
A unique combination of security graphics printed in ‘one pass’ over the hologram and paper in close register with a minimum of two invisible UV inks used in the process. This method is difficult to scan, copy or replicate and very effective in deterring counterfeiting.
