Printing digital labels with a Guilloche design can protect your brand’s identity from counterfeiters.


Protect Your Brand With Guilloche Digital Labels

A Guilloche is used as a type of intricate mathematical design often used as a security feature in printing. It works using a mathematical shape known as a hypotrochoid. This is essentially the equation for the fixed point of a circle rolling around inside a larger circle. The very same concept as a spirograph you may have had as a child!

Most bank notes already apply this technique. Increasingly it is being used in the commercial world as a cost effective way to add extra layers of security to a product.

Counterfeiting or copying this design is very difficult, as creating the specific pattern is dependent on having the exact formula used.

As you can see above there are a number of variables that can be minutely changed to create vastly different patterns.


How Can CS Labels Help?

Here at CS Labels we use high resolution digital printing to provide 1200dpi digital labels. This allows us to provide you with the high quality and minute detail required for this type of security label.

You can even increase the level of security by using a custom spot colour to produce your Guilloche. Our Xeikon digital presses allow us to offer 5 colour printing (four process colours and one spot colour) which will prevent counterfeiters from being able to match the colours and the design. Adding a Guilloche to your digital labels is a great way to protect you brand, and if implemented at the design stage could cost you nothing at all.
