Newly developed by Veridos, CLIP ID® (Color Laser Image Protected ID) is an integrated solution that adds vivid color photos to the next generation of polycarbonate identity documents. It combines secure laser engraving with brilliant and durable image printing, all while offering maximum flexibility in the production and personalization processes. Our technology produces a uniquely lifelike image of the holder – vivid and high contrast, reflecting all the skin tones of the world.
CLIP ID is short for Color Laser Image Protected ID. This combines laser engraving and color printing within a customized lenticular structure. The result is a lifelike image of the holder of the ID – in true, vivid colors.
Advantages include the utmost security, long-lasting product lifetime and no need for additional protection layers, making it very cost-effective. The solution is also suitable for both centralized and decentralized personalization processes.
The CLIP ID personalization splits a single photo source. Firstly, a grey scale version is laserengraved, then the color photo is printed on top. This produces a photo that is joined with the document material and can’t be separated from it. By touching it with a finger or viewing it under an infrared light, it is easy to detect manipulated IDs.
CLIP ID Echo is an enhanced version of our well-known CLIP ID security feature. It provides visual means of verifying document authenticity. Simple yet highly efficient, CLIP ID Echo is a repeated portrait and biographical data, such as a birth date or an ID number, of the cardholder and that is only visible from certain angles. The additional information within CLIP ID Echo is personalized by Laser engraving and provides enhanced protection. Reproduction of engraved data by photocopying, for example is simply impossible, making CLIP ID Echo the most effective feature available against forgery.
