HologramStudio offers consultancy to businesses and organizations that are planning to use holography. Holography is a well known form of brand protection, using a hologram anyone in a supply chain from consumer to producer can easily verify if a product is authentic. As a producer you want to prevent counter fitting of your products. As a consumer, you want to make sure you have the original product, and not an inferior and possibly unsafe counterfeit. A hologram ensures the consumer that the product is genuine and can easily be identified as such. For a producer the hologram will not only maximize your sales potential by preventing counter fits, more important the brand name is effectively secured from fraudulent copying.
Security products where we can provide advice on include: Holograms, OVD (Optical Variable Device), DOVID (Diffractive Optically Variable Image Device) or E-beam imagery.
