For optimal branding, you can also order a custom-made die that features your branding elements like your logo or tagline, making it completely specific to your credential program. With a custom tactile impression die, you’ll greatly increase the tamper resistance of your cards, making them more secure and virtually impossible to for counterfeiters to duplicate. You can think of the effect that the impressor die makes as a notarization on the front of your cards.
