Tax stamps can safeguard tax revenues in the millions. But it’s not just about the financial aspect: Counterfeit-proof tax stamps protect consumers from sub-standard products and safeguard your brand’s reputation.
LEONHARD KURZ offers you a highly customizable modular system consisting of diffractive security elements, security labels, and security software to protect your tax revenues. Our Tax Stamp Award-winning module innovation adds value for everyone involved in the lifecycle of your tax stamps: From production, through the supply chain, to the end customer. The tax authority has full control and visibility at all times.
Track & Trace capability
The time-consuming embossing of paper at the security printer was yesterday - make your own processes leaner and save unnecessary costs without fearing losses when it comes to tamper protection!
Based on our many years of expertise, we have developed an innovative process that enables us to provide every conventional paper with unique, diffractive TRUSTSEAL® security elements, thus turning it into a security paper. Whether nanotext and microtext, diffractive black, spotlight effects, or taggant integration: Just like the design, the proprietary security elements can be individually customized and tailored to the respective process at the printing company. This pretreatment takes place directly at our premises, before the paper is delivered.
The advantages are plain to see: The printing company does not need any special equipment for further processing and thus reduces production costs. At the same time, authorities can rely on LEONHARD KURZ’s tax stamps being manufactured to the usual high quality standard. The tax stamp paper is provided with complex holographic structures that cannot be reproduced using commercially available copying devices.
Last but not least, our tax stamp paper is a sustainable alternative to conventional solutions. Instead of using a PET carrier, we coat the paper directly. For the avoidance of doubt, no PET carrier film is used during production.
Our three modules of diffractive security elements, printed security labels, and security software are available individually or as a tailor-made complete solution. TRUSTCONCEPT® Tax Stamps can be enhanced with a range of additional features, linked to digital added value, and tailored to your individual needs. Find out more here:
