    The security of your card program is becoming increasingly important as the range and frequency of security threats increase. Entrust Datacard continuously develops new and improved security offerings trusted by governments and other institutions worldwide.

    Secure Laminate Options:

    Entrust OptiExpress™ Security Feature Set:

    Tactile Impression Feature

    Entrust has a unique, patent-pending tactile impression feature that is available as an option with the SD460™ card printer and CD800™ card printer with inline lamination. The feature creates an impression on the card substrate that you can see and feel. The tactile impression process uses a unique die to create the impression, which differs from the embossing or indenting technology available today. When used with a patch laminate, it helps make the card tamper evident and provides a higher level of security.

    Similar to our holographic overlays, a one-of-a-kind tactile design can be created specifically for your card program. Contact an Entrust representative to learn how.
