Coupon Security

The closest thing you have to currency is your consumer coupons - Protect them well.

Coupons are among the most effective ways for you to attract new customers, build customer preference, and drive revenue.  They have a broad appeal around the world because they offer the straightforward incentive of savings to the consumer, and a promise of brand growth to the manufacturer.

They’re also a popular target for counterfeiters, many of whom use desktop scanners or copiers to misuse your brand.

To help you realize more benefits and fewer risks, DSS & Premier offer three key cutting-edge tools within our security technology portfolio, designed to defend against today’s sophisticated counterfeiters.  Each of these technologies lets your brand shine through in your original coupons. In fact, each works with standard printing inks, and can be layered virtually seamlessly into your artwork.  All while protecting your brand.

Pantograph 4000™

One of today’s most powerful security measures for coupons, Pantograph 4000™ is your first line of defense against fraud.  This next-generation void pantograph technology has proven to be the most effective across the widest range of copiers and desktop scanners on the market today.  We are constantly pushing the technology envelop to make sure Pantograph 4000™ is current and relevant for fighting counterfeit both today and in the future.

Bare Code Barricade

Barcodes are fairly easy to copy, making them highly vulnerable to fraud.  One of the newest innovations in barcode security, DSS’s Barcode Barricade, creates a normally functioning original barcode.  Copies and scans of the barcode contain distortions that render the barcode difficult or impossible for a barcode reader to capture.


Our Block-Out technology provides an added layer of security to coupons to protect against counterfeiting attempts using a high-end digital color copier.  As part of a layered security printing solution, Block-Out causes high-end digital color copiers to produce outputs that are completely black, severely distorted or fail to copy at all.
