Security Foiling products are particularly renowned for enabling the end user to control their security document issuing process, ensuring that the secure foil or holographic feature is only applied at the point that the document is issued. This removes the inherent risks of transporting and storing secure documents because they can now be created ‘on demand’

The MicroPOISE system will celebrate its 20th Anniversary in 2018 and has been continually developed to meet the needs of todays document issuers.


Security Foiling products allow security documents to be created ‘on demand’. Documents created in this way are validated with a security feature during the creation process. Any attempt to create a valid document requires access to the technology and multiple specialised items. The document creation process can be fully audited.

We are able to supply everything needed to deliver the finished solution from security print, hologram design/supply to providing all of the equipment and consumables needed to apply the secure feature to a security document or plastic card.

Security Foiling offers a range of world-leading foil and hologram security solutions to a wide spectrum of industries.
