Product piracy – a billion dollar business

The trade in counterfeit goods is a billion euro business costing manufacturers billions in lost revenue every year. Customs officers are seizing more and more counterfeit products around the world. At the same time, the gangs are becoming increasingly professional.

Not everything sporting an illustrious brand name is an original item. It is worth noting that counterfeits have a detrimental effect on a brand’s exclusivity. A reduction in quality alters the perception of a brand and undermines its value as the poor quality of a counterfeit product is often associated with the original manufacturer.

Effective product protection of designer clothing is therefore vital to avoid declining sales and reputational damage.

Security solutions for physical product protection

We rely on a wide range of complex details and security features in combination for the design and technical implementation of security labels. The identification of these security features is subdivided into various levels: visible, hidden, or forensic.

In addition to optical security features in the form of holograms/OVDs, which protect the product and increase consumer confidence, we also use other security features such as optical variable inks (OVIs). advast suisse AG offers individual security solutions specifically customized to your particular requirements. Our specialists will produce a design without compromising your corporate identity.

Security holograms (OVDs)

Physical product protection in the form of self-adhesive security holograms (optical variable devices – OVDs) are a comparatively cost-effective, secure and efficient method of protecting your brand and products from competition. The integration of security features at different levels offers numerous options for implementation.

Hologram seals/tamper-evident seals

Hologram seals combine counterfeit protection and a tamper-evident guarantee in one. Any attempt to remove the seal will leave behind a remnant, and the hologram seal is irreversibly destroyed. The integrated transfer protection thus offers reliable protection against manipulation.
