OpSec® SuRe Family of Surface Relief Products
Visually stunning overt Level 1 security features for ease of public recognition with the naked eye
The use of a strong primary feature delivers instant recognition and authentication. The features of surface relief simplify communication with the public and are impossible to simulate without access to sophisticated technology and the knowledge of how to use it.
Governments, financial institutions, and brands need to protect secure documents and products against counterfeiters and ensure the public and enforcement officials can quickly authenticate the document or product as genuine – preferably only with the use of the naked eye. As governments and brands face distinctly different authentication challenges, both have a need for a range of solutions that are tailored to their unique applications. Increased availability and lower investment costs in scanning and printing equipment requires constant development of authentication features in order to stay ahead of counterfeiters. This technology race has driven an ongoing development of optical overt (Level 1) security features that are impossible to counterfeit or simulate, but are intuitive and simple for the public and enforcement to identify and understand.
OpSec® SuRe provides simple to recognize, yet very difficult to replicate authentication
OpSec® SuRe is a family of surface relief effects that have the appearance of an actual three-dimensional object resting on a surface. OpSec® SuRe is a family of innovative products offering cutting edge optical technologies that support Level 1 security features, without compromising the integrity of the document or product. Distinctly different to a hologram and more easily viewable in any lighting, OpSec® SuRe can be easily integrated with any of our existing colored and dynamic features.
Now available to security printers, brands, and other sensitive applications, SuRe offers a range of effects for designs ranging from liquid lens shapes, mirror-like facets to fully textured surfaces. Easy to integrate with other holographic effects, the feature is easily visible in all lighting conditions.

Bas relief sculptures, where the features appear raised from the surface, have been used since ancient times by the Greeks and Romans to adorn buildings and to produce artworks because of their interesting visual appeal.
OpSec® Cameo, the first in a series of forthcoming products within the OpSec® SuRe family, creates the illusion of a bas relief sculpture on the surface of the image with a depth of several millimeters. The graphic imagery is visible in all lighting conditions and is simple for the public to recognize and verify.
Cameo imagery is suited to a wide range of applications from banknotes and secure documents to brand protection programs and can also be integrated with conventional holographic techniques to produce aesthetically pleasing designs with varying levels of security for overt public, covert inspector, and forensic investigator level verification.
