Printing - Microprinting


Microprinting is the production of recognizable patterns or characters in a printed medium at a scale that requires magnification to read with the naked eye. This also makes it difficult to reproduce accurately using copiers or scanners. Typically the text is set to a size of 1pt (or smaller), using only upper case characters. the text looks even more like a solid line at a distance. 

Microprint is used on currency, bank checks,vouchers and other items of value. It is often combined with other safety techniques such as holograms, void pantographs, prismatic printing, hot stamp foil printing, infrared visible inks or watermarks.

To easily spot microprinting, you will need magnifying tools. XX, XX, XX are some Dino-Lite microscope recommended for microprinting inspection.
