Hologram Labels | Hologram Foils | Security Holograms
1. Hologram Master Origination Types and Different Hologram Sticker Security Features:
Hologram master origination is a piece of nickel mold which plays a security key role in the hologram manufacturing. Combination of different security features like 2D/3D, Dot-marix, 3D, 2D, E-beam, True Color, CLR & Moire Hidden text, Micron text, Nano text, Guilloche Lines, Multi Chanells, will achieve a good hologram against counterfiet.
Dot-Matrix holographic label allows implementing unlimited computer controlled and laser beam engraved dots in hologram. Dot-matrix hologram is the result of designs comprising many tiny hologrram dots which millions of grating dots' viewing angles and position are accurately recorded. They create a beautiful impact of variable images, especial many types of kinetic movements. E-beam hologram system has much smaller dots than Dot-matrix sytem. Stock Dot-matrix patterns
2D/3D hologram sticker is made up of multiple two dimensional layers with holographic images visually placed one behind another. Hologram visual depth produces an effect of three-dimensional holographicc structure by laser optical recording. 2D/3D hologram labels colorful images and clear 3D depth between different layers. Hologram stickers made by 2D & 2D/3D optical recording system have better sharpness and color than Dot-matrix or E-beam sytem.
True Color Hologram
True color holographic label is made up of photographic quality portrait art-work with natual color. If counterfeiter can not get original portrait, they won't be able to duplicate similar hologram close to original one.
2D hologram sticker is made up of two dimensional images. The holographic images are assigned different colors and position in one layer. All color seperation images and text are on surface, without visual depth. 2D hologram has the highest brightness and sharpnes.
3D model hologram sticker
3D Stereogram hologram labels are made by more than 30 flips hologram images with optical 3D hologram system. It's not possible to copy similar effect 3D hologram successfully from exsist sample. 3D Model hologam is recorded from a small sculpture model by different angles laser beams. Recombination of 3D Stereogram hologram with 2D/3D, dot-matrix, 2D, CLR hidden text, Micro Text and kinematic guilloche elements has high security.
Digital and E-beam 3D Hologram with covert image
Digital 3D hologram stickers are made by computer synthesized electronic beam dots or high resolution dot-matrix system grating dots which are controlled by software. The E-beam hologram can make nano text, multi-switch, animated CLR and multilevel CLR, as well as 3D, 2D/3D, 2D, hidden text,flip-flops and kinematic elements.
Kinetic animation effect like guilloche lines, zooming, switching, rotation, pillar light and raster effect are available to be made together with 2D/3D and 2D type holograms. 2D/3D type hologram kinematic movement comes a sequential viewing angle holographic lines/images with different color separation. Dot-matrix type holographic kinematic movement effect has more smooth flips . With special digital and 2D/3D hologram technologies, customized design logo&graph can be incorporated onto perfect kinematic movement hologram patterns.
Covert Laser Readable Hidden Text(CLR images) and Moire Hidden Text in hologram sticker
Hidden text or image contains unique encrypted data, invisible to naked eye and detectable only by means of a pocket reader. Laser readable hidden (covert laser readable) text/image just can be seen with special laser pointer (laser reader). Morie hidden is revealed by covering a piece of decode film on holographic sticker's encode area. Boht are covert secutity features. High security dynamic CLR and multilevel CLR with morie covert features are available to be to incorporated together. Two kind of hidden Text(image) in hologram
Multichannel switch and flip-flop effect. 2D/3D, Dot-Matrix, E-beam hologram allows display two or more images from different viewing angles. When the viewing angle changes horizontally (left to right) or vertically (upside and down), different images evolve through the hologram label. This switch effect with multichannels are overt features.
Micro Text or Image in hologram labels, Nano text, concealed images and other Overt security.
Micro text or micro image in holographic label is difficult to be seen clearly by naked eye . It's visual inspection clearly by magnifier and microscope. Nano text has smaller font than micron text. Micron text, enforced error micron text, nano text has font size as 10 micron, 25 micron, 100 micron.
Security Flash Light and Len effect, speckle effect, random interference fringes, matt color gives good security and appearance.
Combination of Hologram
Combination of hologram creates an impact that has extra-ordinary viewing effects and also security features. Usually, it's good to combine 2D, 2D/3D and dot-matrix together to result 2D sharpness, dot-matrix kinematic movements and 2D/3D good viewing depth.

If you want to see a hologram, you don't have to look much farther than your wallet. Th¬ere are holograms on most driver's licenses, ID cards and credit cards. If you're not old enough to drive or use credit, you can still find holograms around your home. They're part of CD, DVD and software packaging, as well as just about everything sold as "official merchandise."
Unfortunately, these holograms -- which exist to make forgery more difficult -- aren't very impressive. You can see changes in colors and shapes when you move them back and forth, but they usually just look like sparkly pictures or smears of color. Even the mass-produced holograms that feature movie and comic book heroes can look more like green photographs than amazing 3-D images.
On the other hand, large-scale holograms, illuminated with lasers or displayed in a darkened room with carefully directed lighting, are incredible. They're two-dimensional surfaces that show absolutely precise, three-dimensional images of real objects. You don't even have to wear special glasses or look through a View-Master to see the images in 3-D.
If you look at these holograms from different angles, you see objects from different perspectives, just like you would if you were looking at a real object. Some holograms even appear to move as you walk past them and look at them from different angles. Others change colors or include views of completely different objects, depending on how you look at them.
Holograms have other surprising traits as well. If you cut one in half, each half contains whole views of the entire holographic image. The same is true if you cut out a small piece -¬- even a tiny fragment will still contain the whole picture. On top of that, if you make a hologram of a magnifying glass, the holographic version will magnify the other objects in the hologram, just like a real one.
Holography is a photographic technique that records the light scattered from an object, and then presents it in a way that appears three-dimensional. Holograms pop up in movies such as "Star Wars" and "Iron Man," but the technology has not quite caught up to movie magic - yet.
Various types of holograms have been made over the years, including transmission holograms, which allow light to be shined through them and the image to be viewed from the side; and rainbow holograms, which are used for security purposes - on credit cards and driver's licenses, for example.
How holography works
To create a hologram, you need an object (or person) that you want to record; a laser beam to be shined upon the object and the recording medium; a recording medium with the proper materials needed to help clarify the image; and a clear environment to enable the light beams to intersect.
What is a Nerve Agent?
Simply put, nerve agents stop the central nervous system from communicating with the muscles, organs and glands it needs to keep your body's internal machinery running smoothly.A laser beam is split into two identical beams and redirected by the use of mirrors. One of the split beams, the illumination beam or object beam, is directed at the object. Some of the light is reflected off the object onto the recording medium.
The second beam, known as the reference beam, is directed onto the recording medium. This way, it doesn't conflict with any imagery that comes from the object beam, and coordinates with it to create a more precise image in the hologram location.
The two beams intersect and interfere with each other. The interference pattern is what is imprinted on the recording medium to recreate a virtual image for our eyes to see.
The recording medium, where the lights converge, can be made up of various materials. One of the most common used with hologram creation is photographic film, with an added amount of light-reactive grains. This enables the resolution to be higher for the two beams, making the image look much more realistic than using the silver halide material from the 1960s.
History of holography
The development of hologram technology started in 1962, when Yuri Denisyuk, in the Soviet Union, and Emmett Leith and Juris Upatnieks at the University of Michigan developed laser technology that recorded 3D objects. Silver halide photographic emulsions were used for the recording medium, though the clarity of said objects wasn't perfect at the time. But new methods involving the conversion of transmission with the refractive index allowed holograms to be improved over time.
Future of holography
For now, holograms are static. Recent presentations, such as CNN's special effect of a reporter appearing live from another location, and the late Tupac Shakur "appearing live" at a music festival, are not "true" holograms.
However, new holographic technology is being developed that projects 3D images from another location in real time. The images are also static, but they are refreshed every two seconds, creating a strobe-like effect of movement. The researchers hope to improve the technology over the next few years to bring higher resolution and faster image streaming.
And in March 2013, it was announced that a group of researchers from Hewlett Packard Laboratories has developed glasses-free, multi-perspective, 3D display technology for mobile devices.
