Why choose De La Rue Holographics?

De La Rue Holographics specialises in classical holography. Our holograms deliver a real synergy between design and technology to ensure unbeatable levels of security are combined with ease of public recognition. Hologram verifiers and the public will quickly recognise and authenticate our holograms because they have:

  • Sharper resolution
  • Deeper imagery
  • Controlled colour
  • Clear image switches

Our high security holograms are impossible to replicate using alternative technologies. For each client, we develop a bespoke OVD that combines powerful, intuitive design with a strong suite of security features.

Market favours classical holography

The newsletter of the hologram industry notes that companies are "embracing the qualities of classical holography as more distinct and difficult-to-copy designs".


  • Requires expert operator skill with techniques not available on the commercial market
  • Effects are distinctly different from other forms of holography
  • Provides complexity in use with simplicity of verification
  • Full range of colours with a controlled shift



The De La Rue Holographics factory holds the internationally recognised OHSAS 18001:2007 and ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditations. The plant is regularly inspected by the European Central Bank, as well as being constantly monitored by our own security team.
