Unique in the market, Thales Gemalto Edge Sealer feature is a laser engraving process applied during the personalization stage. Documents are laser-etched with markings along the edge of the document, thus adding an additional layer of security. The laser engravings ideally relate to the holder’s personal information, using their name, serial number, or other unique information.
Gemalto Edge Sealer is visibly at the edge. It offers convenience, security and ease of implementation. The technique is impossible to duplicate with a copy machine or scanner and is extremely difficult to reproduce due to the special expertise and unique technology required.
