Does Cryptoglyph protect tobacco products from counterfeiting?
Tobacco products can be protected from counterfeiting using Cryptoglyph. In fact, AlpVision has some of the largest tobacco companies as its clients. The micro dots of the Cryptoglyph are digitally applied as a layer over a pre-existing design of a cigar or cigarette package. The use of these covert markings significantly increases the difficulty of counterfeiting, as the genuine product becomes nearly impossible to copy exactly and yet is easily distinguished from a counterfeit. Protecting tobacco products with Cryptoglyph sets the genuine apart from illegal and unsafe products.
