Tax stamps combine numerous security requirements on a tiny piece of paper. Firstly, governments worldwide pursue the aim to generate and secure tax income and to detect irregularities as quickly as possible. At the same time, tax stamps with added highly-sophisticated security features offer users the opportunity to detect counterfeit products early and to avert possible risks. Lastly, and most importantly, industrial requirements must be taken into account with the conception of tax stamps to ensure smooth production processes. Beyond that, with the possibility of unique product coding based on corresponding system solutions, secure and complete supply chains with effective tracking & tracing processes for all parties involved must be created.
