Counterfeit and stolen products, from medication to electronics, accounts for a staggering market share. Imports of counterfeit and pirated goods are worth nearly half a trillion dollars a year, or around 2.5% of global imports.

One way manufacturers and brands protect themselves from intellectual property theft or pirated goods is through brand security. Although some brand security approaches are complex and involve digital assistance, DLS offers something any company selling goods can benefit from: Augmented Labels.

Augmented Labels are security labels created to satisfy end-users that require distinguished labels that go beyond custom or even high-quality Prime Labels. Augmented Labels are decorative and accentuated with one or more unique Print Effects.

 6 Small Security Features Can Make a Big Difference

Augmented Labels offer Print Effects that enhance label design and protect products. Your customers can request one or more features for their custom label design. The result? A more secure label that’s also enticing to consumers.

3D Feel Print

Raised ink offers texturized text and images for a 3D feel. The added detail takes label quality to the next level.

Micro-Text

Extremely small print contributes to design detail as well as adding security measures. Micro-text can also be printed onto tamper-evident tape.

 

Color-Shifting Inks

Like ink on currency, color-shifting inks display two distinct colors depending on the angle of view.

Holograms

Holograms integrated into the design of the label augment its security features while dramatically increasing visual interest.

 

Foils

Metallic foils offer print security when added to graphics and logos for a captivating design.

Black Light Inks

Fun and interactive black light inks engage consumers. It also adds a covert security feature to any product.
