Product description

Single-layer hologram labels represent the basic type of a hologram with an accentuated holographic effect – these labels are most adequate if you want to visualize your logo without any background graphics. The final hologram labels have a clean and uncluttered look and bear the stamp of luxury while keeping the price low.

Single layered holographic 2D design is based on a fact that data used for its production are derived from two-dimensional motive. It is not difficult to prepare graphical predesign and customers can do it themselves using wide-spread graphical editors. This exact type of self-adhesive stickers is known for the most incisively changing effects no matter what the lightning type is and even at the minimal light intensity. This is a typical and an immutable visual manifestation of the hologram and it is one of those characteristics that make it a unique security item or a decoration. The ragier the 2D predesign used for the production, the more unique and effective the visual effect of the sticker. Considering the extremely high diversity of graphical realization (app. 1400 lines at 1 mm according to the produciton technology) you do not need to worry about using extremely thin lines and motives when making the predesign. It is the delicate graphics that created the best colour creations which are strengthened when the angle of view is changed. When moving the hologram a change in colour of individual areas can occur as well as hiding or the opposite- visualizing of some picture information. All these described effects can be strengthened by creating a predesign of two 2D motives and their tagging together makes a two layered 2D hologram.

The maximum size of the hologram that can be made is 100x100mm.

Hologram foil colour 
Holograms are printed on aluminium foils of various colours. Silver is the basic and most frequently used colour that makes the hologram very noticeable reflecting all colours of the colour spectrum. The second most frequently used foil is golden. The hologram rainbow effect is less pronounced on golden foil as the blue in the reflection is missing; on the other hand, golden colour comes on as more luxurious. These two foil colours are the basic ones and are provided for the same price. A hologram can be produced in any other foil colour for a fee of at least 40 %. The most luxurious but also the most costly is the black foil hologram (extra fee of 160 % plus).

Label shape 
We are able to produce hologram labels in any shape. Square, rectangular, round and oval are the basic ones requiring no specific or custom-made stamping dies to be produced. If you want to have a label in your own shape (such as the shape of your logo), expect an extra charge to cover the production of the stamping die. In case of square and rectangular holograms, the corners must be rounded with a radius of at least 0.5 mm for a correct cut-out.

Hologram numbering 
Upon request, all labels produced may be numbered providing another level of security. Numbers may be printed by laser or thermal transfer printing. Laser numbering is the most advanced technique as the numbers are virtually burnt into the aluminium foil making the hologram transparent at the area of the number – this process is virtually impossible to counterfeit. There is no difference in price for both options.


Standard glue is suitable for smooth surfaces such as glass, smooth plastic and metal. Strong glue is stronger, has higher substance density and holds labels on structured and grainy surfaces – such as metallic and plastic vehicle frames.

Security layer (tamper evident)
Holograms may be produced with a security layer that destroys the hologram when tampered with. As a standard, we produce holograms with basic non-controlled destruction option where most of the aluminium hologram layer remains on the surface and the other part of the label remains on the transparent protection foil when the label is peeled off. The hologram without its protection layer is not abrasion-proof and will get rubbed off soon.

Subject to an extra fee, the label tamper-evident destruction option may also be controlled thanks to a selective placement of the glue:

Standard security – non-controlled destruction of the label when tampered with – see above 
VOID – destruction of the label leaving a VOID pattern on the surface. The negative image remains on the label. 
Honeycomb – a honeycomb pattern remains on the surface while the negative image stays on the label 
Squares (chessboard)– a checkered pattern remains on the surface and the negative image stays on the label 
No security – see above

For those who prefer peel-off labels, we offer the option of no security which may come handy when labels are used directly on final products and it is desirable that the client removes the hologram without destroying the product.

Hologram printing
For an extra charge, we also offer additional printing on hologram labels with any graphic design. We create a “mask” that covers the hologram which then works in the background.

Graphic design

Do you want to provide your own graphic design for holograms? Not difficult at all. Holograms are manufactured based on vector file data (lines) provided in the following formats - *.ai .cdr .eps .pdf. We prefer data in Adobe Illustrator (.ai) or Corel Draw (.cdr).

Graphic data size must correspond (in mm) to the exact size of the hologram produced. The hologram graphics must be done in black, with no colour transition and with crop lines – pre-defined trim marks (in red or magenta, max. thickness of 0.15 pt); if the graphic data touch the crop line, they must overlap by at least 2 mm (catchment area) as it is impossible to manufacture and cut out a hologram without a minimum deviation. In terms of shapes, holograms cannot be cut with too sharp edges – the corner radius of any square or rectangular stickers must be 0.5 mm at least. Do not create any trim marks and if you use any font in your design, it must be transformed into a curve (non-modifiable font) or it could be substituted.

Single-layer hologram manufacturing chart

A1) Serial numbers
It is possible to number each security hologram for an extra charge, using either laser or thermal transfer print. Laser printed numbers are printed in the aluminium carrier foil as transparent areas so the underlying layer under the sticker remains visible. This process is very difficult to counterfeit. In thermal transfer printing, serial numbers are printed in ink on the top protective foil of the sticker.

A2) Hologram printing 
We can also print in colour on hologram stickers (screen or thermal transfer printing). Hence, you can have your logo printed on the protective foil of the hologram covering its part (mask). You can pick any colour, no colour transitions though.

B) Layer 1
Hologram graphic design such as a company logo.

C) Metallic carrier foil 
The metallic carrier foil the hologram itself is stamped into can be executed in many colours with the basic ones being silver and gold. The holographic effect is best shown on silver foil; other foil colours (including golden) do not provide such a pronounced holographic effect. The hologram can be produced in virtually any colour – even in colours that are not included in the offer (upon enquiry).

D) security layer - Tamper Evident (VOID)
For an additional fee, the hologram may further be protected with a Tamper Evident Protection. The glue is applied on the label selectively in order to ensure a controlled (pre-defined) destruction if tampered with. You can choose from a standard VOID destruction where the repetitive VOID (or a checkered/honeycomb) pattern of the hologram’s metallic foil remains on the surface. The negative part of the hologram foil remains visible on the top transparent protective layer of the hologram and it is clearly visible that the sticker was tampered with when re-stuck. If you decide not to opt for the VOID layer, your holograms will be equipped with standard non-controlled protection that will keep a part of the hologram (based on its adhesive quality) on the surface while the protective layer is peeled off; in such a case, the remaining part of the hologram without the protective layer is rubbed off easily. We can also produce the labels without any protection at all which is convenient especially for those products where the label should be completely removed before use – glasses, containers, clothes and similar.

E) Glue
We offer two types of glue – a standard glue suitable for all smooth and de-greased surfaces such as paper, glass or flat surfaces or strong glue that holds security holograms even on roughened surfaces such as rough plastic or powder coated (comaxit) surfaces.
