Back in the 1980’s when black and white copiers were popular, if anyone tried to copy a red security label, the red overlay would show up as a solid black image completely wiping out the barcode below. But over the years, there have been all sorts of improvements in photocopiers to the point that they now can produce full-color, photo-quality images. On top of that, the prices of scanners and copiers have dropped considerably, so that they are much more readily available.
The old red overlays were foiled by these newer copiers because they can print not only the red background but also the black barcodes. Whammo! Your security is limited just to people who don’t know about the differences in scanning equipment. Let’s face it… you really need a label that will truly deter photo-copying in both black and white—OR—full color.
