20080309063Microrefraction Image - A periodic line pattern, which is covered by a periodic lens structure of cylindrical lenses parallel to the lines of the line pattern, is imprinted on a substrate. The period of the lens structure corresponds with the period of the line pattern. The lenses preferably are aligned flush with the lines of the line pattern. The lines consist of paths of elementary printing dots or image dots (pixels). The number of paths of elementary printing dots in one period is at least 4 and not more than 16. The height of the cylindrical lenses at the apex is at least half the width of a period and not more than the width of a period of the line pattern. With advanced offset printing methods, which are employed for instance in safety printing (e.g. for banknotes), a printing resolution of about 4 μm is achieved. Preferably, the elementary printing dots are chosen only a little larger than the achievable printing resolution. What is realistic are elementary printing dots of approximately square shape with a side length between 4 and 8 μm. With minimum requirements as to the design possibilities for the line pattern, two lines per period are sufficient. Each line should consist of at least two paths of elementary printing dots. This corresponds to a period width of about 40 μm. In the corresponding lens structure, the individual cylindrical lenses have a height at the apex of slightly more than half the period width. Such fine lens structures can be produced by imprinting a transparent mass with an intaglio printing method or by embossing the transparent mass with an intaglio gravure plate. The microrefraction image thus obtained is particularly useful for use in a certificate of authenticity.12-18-2008

20120313365Optically Variable Device (OVD) Images Embedded Within Plastic Strips - A method for the manufacture of a polymer strip useful to secure information contained on a face of a card includes the steps of extruding a polymer resin to form an optically transparent strip and then embossing an optically variable device into a first surface of this optically transparent strip. A time from when the optically transparent strip exits an extruder until embossing is effective to prevent the optically transparent strip from cooling to a temperature below 120° C. Subsequent to embossing, the optically variable device may be entirely or partially metalized. Alternatively, or in addition, to the metallization, security features may be formed into that first surface.12-13-2012
20120074682METHOD FOR CREATING A VISUAL ANIMATION ON A MEDIUM - The invention relates to a method for creating a visual animation on a medium, including the following steps consisting in: disposing at least two excitable agents on the medium in at least two adjacent respective zones, each of said agents generating a visual effect in response to the same stimulus and said visual effects having different appearances and/or afterglows. The excitable agents are selected such that the visual effects appear and/or disappear sufficiently close to one another over time so as to give the observer the impression of movement on the medium.03-29-2012

20120187673SECURITY DOCUMENT - The present invention provides a security document and method of production thereof. The security document (07-26-2012
20090020999SECURITY DOCUMENTS AND METHODS OF DETERRING COUNTERFEITING - Apparatus and methods are described for a security document that includes an area of microprinting a pattern of microprint and a three-dimensional appearing image. The three-dimensional appearing image is formed within the area of microprinting by one or more deviations from the pattern of microprint. In addition, the area of microprinting and the three-dimensional appearing image are not reproducible via a digital imaging device.01-22-2009
20110227327Privacy card cover - A privacy card cover includes a front part and back part to hide information on a card. The privacy card cover is attachable and detachable from the card and is placed on the card by a user. The privacy card cover includes privacy film that prevents viewing of the information on the card except at an angle substantially perpendicular to the surface of the card. Different configurations of the privacy card cover allow any type of card to be covered. If the card includes a magnetic strip or other machine-readable data, then that part of the card is left uncovered and accessible.09-22-2011
20120091701CLEAR MAGNETIC INTAGLIO PRINTING INK - The invention discloses an ink for the engraved steel die printing process, having a viscosity at 40° C. between 3 Pa.s to 15 Pa.s, preferably 5 to 10 Pa.s, and comprising a polymeric organic binder and magnetic pigment particle, characterized in that said magnetic pigment particles comprises a magnetic core material which is surrounded by at least one layer of another material. The surrounding layers, single or in combination, confer the pigment particle particular optical properties in the visible and/or in the near IR, chosen from high specular or diffuse reflectance, spectrally selective absorption or reflection, and angle-dependent absorption or reflection, and allow for the formulation of inks having a large gamut of color and other optical functionalities.04-19-2012
20130015650Substrate having coding pattern encoding reed-solomon symbols - A substrate has a coding pattern printed on a surface thereof. The coding pattern encodes a plurality of Reed-Solomon symbols. Any one symbol has a value represented by m macrodots distributed amongst p possible positions within the symbol. The positions of the m macrodots amongst the p possible positions determines the value of the Reed-Solomon symbol. The macrodots of a first symbol that is adjacent to a second symbol are distributed such that the macrodots of the first symbol are not adjacent to the macrodots of the second symbol.01-17-2013
20130093176HIGH REFRACTIVE INDEX COATINGS AND THEIR USE IN THE PROTECTION OF SURFACE RELIEF STRUCTURES - High refractive index coatings having metal oxide particles are disclosed. Dispersions of metal oxide particles in solvent are also disclosed. These find use in the protection of surface relief structures. In some disclosed embodiments, the coatings or dispersions contain UV-curable resins. The coatings and dispersions find application in the field of security devices and documents and tokens incorporating security devices.04-18-2013
20130127151LIGHT-EMITTING MEDIUM AND METHOD OF CONFIRMING LIGHT-EMITTING MEDIUM - There is provided a light-emitting medium by which whether a valuable paper or the like is forged or not can be judged easily and promptly. A light-emitting medium constituting a valuable paper includes a light-emitting image. The light-emitting image is composed of a pattern area formed on a substrate by using a first fluorescent ink containing a first fluorescent material, and a background area formed on the substrate by using a second fluorescent ink containing a second fluorescent material. When UV-A is irradiated, the first fluorescent ink and the second fluorescent ink emit light of colors that are viewed as different colors from each other. In addition, when UV-C is irradiated, the first fluorescent ink and the second fluorescent ink emit light of colors that are viewed as different colors from each other, the colors being different from the colors that are viewed when the UV-A is irradiated.05-23-2013
