Company bank cheques
Kingsley Secure Documents has a service level agreement with Botswana banks to print and deliver “Company 100” and “Personal 40” cheque books for its customers.
Additional flourescent security features can be added as UV overprints. This is an overprint which is invisible under normal light but is visible under UV light. The design of this UV layer can be highly complicated and very difficult to falsify.
Specialist inks are used in security printing. These offer protection against alteration by both chemical and water means. By combining Aquafuge and Chemical-solvent inks, a background fugitive is produced that has double protection against alteration. Signs of attempted alteration will cause the ink in the fugitive to disappear, leaving a clear sign of attempted tampering and falsification.
GUILLOCHE FUGITIVE BACKGROUNDS
Security printing composes designs of fine patterns with the aim of making falsification far more difficult. These are made up of the two kinds of security inks with subtle deliberate secret irregularities or hidden design errors so that patterns are not easily copied. Signs of tampering are very easily evident. This is a particularly useful feature for certificates, degrees and diplomas. In fact, any professional organisation that needs to ensure the integrity of its certification should consider the use of a guilloche design.
