How can our papers boost the security of your documents?

Watermark Paper

First introduced in Fabriano, Italy, in 1282, the watermark has become one of the most prevalent ways to keep papers authentic and secure, which is why we had to implement such a feature into our own products. Watermarks have revolutionised over the years with the advancement of new technologies, being able to prevent tampering, counterfeiting or duplicating sensitive and valuable documents.

Invisible Fibres

To fight fraudulent behaviour or any tampering with your papers, we are able to use invisible fibres in paper. Invisible fibres are one of our special security paper measures and can have instinctive characteristics such as thickness, length, colour, UV activity depending on our client’s demand. The diversity of the fibres make custom paper specific to that client which will discourage counterfeiting.


Planchettes are very small circular discs that are sometimes micro-engraves into the paper with images. These are available in several lengths and colours and they are mixed into the pulp which means they are randomly placed on the paper, providing a unique and hard to counterfeit element. Similar to invisible fibres, they show differently under UV light and can be reactive depending on the client’s choice.

Paper Security Features

As an innovative company we push ourselves to excel in security measures for all of our products. Our expert team is able to work closely with our clients to create the most secure, personalised and professional product that fits the client’s needs. We are able to incorporate watermarks, invisible fibres, planchettes, barcodes, sequential numbers, QR codes and more. For full information, make sure to visit our security features page.
