1. WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO COMBAT OR PREVENT COUNTERFEITING?
Hologram is the most effective product to combat counterfeiting.
One of the reasons why hologram is successful is because hologram is based on optical technology and also till date hologram cannot be copied, scanned or electronically transmitted, unlike all other forms of printed graphics.
Hologram when correctly specified for an application is very difficult copy and any copies or attempts to copy are easily identified. Holograms help the user to identify and authenticate a branded product or a document.
Though Hologram cannot on its own stop counterfeiting, but it helps one to identify the duplicate. This is the reason why currencies around the world use hologram based anti-counterfeiting devices.
Using a hologram is like building a 20 -feet fencing around your home. The burglar will attack a home with low levels of protection.
