Crystal Code’s custom hologram sticker is usually printed on top of a generic hologram made out of a wording pattern that carries the words: Genuine, Authentic, Certified, Valid, Secure A Custom Hologram Sticker is a hologram that can carry customer’s information such as logos and number by simply printing it on top of the generic hologram, making it quite convenient and versatile. It can carry one ink or a combination of inks to make the custom hologram stand out.

Make it unique with hologram sticker

Most consumers make their purchase decision in mere seconds, which is why it’s important to have labels that instantaneously communicate your product’s quality and personality. Since holographic labels are a specialty item, we do require a minimum order for materials. Your dedicated customer service rep will be able to help you determine how much label material is required for your job. We can also print holographic stickers in various shapes and sizes.

What Is a Hologram?

A hologram is an image that has been printed in such a way that it appears to be three dimensional, even though it’s on a 2D surface. Security labels usually use holographic foil for their 3D effects. Holographic foil is thin plastic sheeting that has an image printed on it with a laser. First, a single image is captured from many angles. Then all those angles are printed onto the foil. The result is a picture that looks three-dimensional even though it is flat. Generally, the patterns are simple – regular or slightly irregular shapes, or lines of text – because they don’t need to be very complex to resist tampering or counterfeiting.

The label material used under the holographic foil is generally a light-diffracting metallic silver, as the holographic images “pop” more against a shiny or bright background. When moved, the diffracted light makes colors and shapes appear to shift and move.

Some people add a tamper-evident layer to their labels. If someone tries to peel off the label, a residue will remain behind in a regular pattern. The most usual residue patterns are the word “VOID” repeated across the surface the label was stuck to, or checkerboard or dot patterns.

These labels are not true holograms in the scientific sense of the word, but they give the illusion of depth and movement. While still difficult to forge, they are more affordable than other types of holographic images.

Uses for Hologram Labels

You can use holographic security labels to protect your products and increase their visibility and shelf-appeal. You can also be use them to authenticate documents or other items (membership passes, autographed items, event tickets; the list is endless).

In addition, some gas stations and convenience stores use them to secure and authenticate their unmanned card readers or Point of Service terminals. (If you see a holographic sticker on one, check to make sure it’s not partially covered. If it is, someone may have placed a “skimmer” over the card reader.)

Blank holographic stickers can be used as seals or package closures. But you probably want text, graphics, or serial numbers printed over the holographic foil. The labels can be very effective when “reverse printed” with black or another dark color, leaving the holographic foil to show through the text or the open spaces in the graphics (as shown in the label above). This method may also increase text readability.
