Optically Hidden Images is the process of hiding an image or text within the body of another image. The hidden image is completely undetectable to the naked eye, and most would never suspect it was even there. Hidden images can be added to all types of packaging including self adhesive labels.


Optically Hidden Images On Self Adhesive Labels

These hidden images only become visible when a special verification key is used. Typically made of film or a plastic lens, these keys can be generic or you can order a specific key for your product in order to ensure that the hidden image would be utterly undetectable to anyone else.

Several images can even be added to the same or different parts of the visible image and these can each be set to be revealed by different keys. The hidden image is added as part of the design process and will have no impact on the cost of production. This makes it a great way to add security to your self adhesive labels for packaging.


What Are The Benefits For Business Labels?

The hidden part is specially formed by a piece of invisible and translucent image. Only the visible part can be obtained through scanning. If others attempt to deliberately extract the hidden part, the protected information is destroyed.

The design and merging of hidden image uses digital technology that prevents reversibility of the hidden information. The hiding process is completed during pre-press, and does not affect the cost and time of the printing process. There are no limitations in process colour, spot colour or non basic colour printing options. This means we can create your self adhesive labels to your original design but with the added security of a hidden image.
