Modular solutions for revenue protection

As the world leader in security features, KURZ has launched TRUSTCONCEPT® Tax Stamps to offer modular solutions that maximize tax revenue and protect against counterfeit products. The TRUSTCONCEPT® Tax Stamps can be enhanced with a range of additional and useful features, linked to digital added value, and tailored to your individual needs. Our Tax Stamp award-winning solution adds value for everyone involved in the lifecycle of your tax stamps: from production through the supply chain to the end customer. The tax authority has full control and visibility at all times.


The following modules are available individually or as a tailor-made complete solution:


Functional and attractive security features

The TRUSTSEAL® security films by KURZ form the first module of the three components. In addition to counterfeit-proof optical security elements, our TRUSTSEAL® range is highly reliable and flexible in terms of both form and function. Designs that are eye-catching and offer security at the same time—with the MultiColor® security feature or partial metallization—enable countless functional and visually appealing design possibilities. What’s more, thanks to obvious, covert, and forensic security features, TRUSTSEAL® makes it difficult to spread product counterfeits. Whether by hot stamping, cold foil transfer, or via DIGITAL METAL®: KURZ offers many possibilities for applying the security film on your product.


Custom printed security labels

As a second module, security printing elements supplement the diffractive elements. When manufacturing your individual protective labels, rely on our highly efficient, customized security package consisting of wet-glue or self-adhesive labels, powerful security features such as TRUSTSEAL® Protect, multicolor UV-fluorescent inks and, for example, guilloche or microtext security printing. Use additional features such as serialization, coding, or IR characteristics to make your products more counterfeit-proof.


Excellent counterfeit protection software

The third module, the TRUSTCODE® Base custom database, can store product information for end customers, excise product transaction data, and product authentication data for your employees. Just one multi-scan per smartphone with the TRUSTCONCEPT® Tax Stamps app is enough for the individual security features to be recorded and compared directly with the TRUSTCODE® Base. With this software, KURZ offers you an excellent solution that enables protected access to your data around the clock, whether at your premises or in the highly secure KURZ data center. The app allows you to access information specifically for certain definable user groups.
