Fusing optical technology with real-time digital tracking in one fully-integrated solution.

Optical technology meets real-time tracking

OpSec is a leading supplier of tax stamp security, authentication systems, and traceability solutions that enable governments to protect their revenues and ensure the safety of their citizens.

Our digital tax stamp solutions combine multi-layered security through:

  • Overt optical technology, high-security print and advanced holography
  • Covert and forensic technologies
  • Digital authentication and traceability, using OpSec® Insight

High security tax stamps

Tax Stamps and Direct to Product print provide governments with a way to mark their excisable products. These ‘marks’ can be authenticated and traced throughout the supply chain, providing valuable data.

OpSec is certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 14298 standards for production, distribution, and data management.

Supplied as either a wet glue banderol or adhesive labels, tax stamps combine overt and covert security features so consumers and customs staff can validate authenticity.

Combined with security print, holography, and a Unique ID in the form of serialization and/or a barcode, OpSec tax stamps provide the most effective protection available against counterfeiting and diversion.

Overt security features

  • Equinox – our patented reflective OVD technology with a dramatic color switch on movement for instant overt protection.
  • OVD Security Stripe – a distinctive multi-tone pattern, printed as a width of 10mm or less.
  • Unique ID Number – enables individual tracking and complete traceability throughout the supply chain.
  • Guilloche Print – an intricate, highly-ornate pattern that is easy to recognize and difficult to imitate.
OpSec overt security features

Covert security features

  • Micro Text – Between 0.1-0.2mm in height, this text is invisible to the naked eye and only legible with a microscope.
  • UV reactive inks – These invisible inks can only be seen under a UV light source. When exposed to UV light, the ink will appear with a luminous glow.
  • Taggant inks – Made up of microscopic taggant flakes that are invisible to the naked eye. Magnification is required to see the repeated polygon pattern.

Direct-to-product marking

Certain environmental factors and production speeds make physical security labels impractical.

Even in these cases, OpSec can provide robust protection by directly printing a unique identifier onto the product.

Each one of our unique identifiers provides an array of metadata for interrogation, such as:

  • Product brand
  • Production date
  • Production location
  • Factory of origin
