Anti-counterfeiting protection with Snaptrust Print ID

The Snaptrust PrintID presents a intelligent and digital solution for counterfeiting and grey market protection. The unique aspect of Snaptrust technology is the fact that a mark, which is invisible to the naked eye, is detected and authenticated using a smartphone camera. The mark can be printed on various materials and does not require additional machinery or any alteration to the production line. There is no need for special coatings or printing plates — the generated printing template can simply be sent to the relevant production facilities via the internet.

The concealed feature offers a further benefit: The product design itself remains unchanged. The solution can therefore be used in many fields, like pharmaceuticals, apparel or body care and cosmetics.

The following requirements must be met in order to use the PrintID Generator integrating the invisible marks into existing PDF printing data.:

  • macOS 10.11 / 10.12
  • Linux / Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
