Toppan has been a pioneering force in hologram manufacture since 1975. By utilising technology we had already been using in semi-conductor manufacture, Toppan was one of the first security printers to use e-beams to create the hologram master shim. Since e-beams can write more than 1,000 fringe patterns per millimetre, it is possible to produce highly detailed, high resolution images in the master shim using this technique.More than 3 decades later, Toppan is still at the cutting edge of hologram manufacture and our range of Crystagrams has racked up numerous references, both for passport laminates and for currency.
Our Crystagrams are all available with micro and nano text and demonstrate a variety of effects such as the Pearlgram, Photocolour and Platinagram examples below.S-White is a more recent development. This Crystagram is authenticated simply by rotating it through 90 degrees and checking for the positive / negative shift.
