Visual security and secure printing technologies

Security features are indispensable for badge media. They increase the entry threshold for forged goods and tampering, and provide you with a visual form of an authenticity check.

It does not matter whether these products are used as access control cards, employee badges, customer cards or payment cards. Right across the spectrum of identification media, secure protection against forgery and tampering has a big role to play.

Security features on chip cards protect against the following hazards: unauthorized scanning of information (confidentiality), unauthorized altering of information (integrity), unauthorized concealment (availability) and unauthorized alteration of identification details (authenticity).

With our production portfolio, which can be extended to suit your needs, we can offer you with immediate effect high-quality and individual visual security features for plastic cards of all kinds, directly from our factory. Hot-foil embossing, security foils, hot-stamping, hologram and DuogramTM as well as DatafoilTM technology are all available from MADA, your one-stop shop.


With the so-called DuogramTM we offer a new and unique possibility to protect your ID-cards and check card from forgery and manipulation. Thanks to the favorable tooling and reproduction costs (less than 10% of the price for original holograms) und the fast and easy artwork process, the DuogramTM is the perfect solution for small and medium sized quantities. The DuogramTM is a security feature of the latest image technologies which is applied via hot foil stamping. This surface finishing combines the visually variable and high-resolution security features of o hologram, such as kinetic effects or micro logos with chrome, metallic or effect foils, as well as detailed embossing and molding. Additionally, a separate effect can be assigned to each viewing angle to generate even more individuality and authentication. There are no limits to your creativity here. DuogramTM and holographic images can be generated in arbitrary forms and stamped customized as 2D or 3D motiv. The resulting effects are not only unique but increase significantly the protection from copy and forgery. A counterfeit by simple means is not possible.
