HID Mirage™ is the only window-based laser engraved ghost portrait with a watermark effect that delivers unparalleled document and holder verification at first sight. Easy to authenticate and ISO24789 compliant, Mirage is available for cards and datapages.

HID Paperlam® Shield is an innovative thin electromagnetic barrier, smoothly integrated into a paper e-Passport inlay. 

HID Skylam™ is a polycarbonate inlay with built-in custom windows that can be easily assembled with the rest of the card's structural layers, prior to hot press lamination. 

HID Crack Prevention Feature (CPF) protects both the polycarbonate (PC) and the chip module. This technology optimizes the reliability of polycarbonate documents by reducing the physical stresses in the chip region of the card which are induced by lamination.

HID Design Services

The design of a passport or security document is so much more than the physical object itself. It is significant and symbolic, evocative and iconic — a cultural statement that respects a proud heritage while looking to the future. Our design services allow nations to deliver on that sense of integrity and promise with every identity document.
