Sophisticated and engaging features integrated by design.
De La Rue is the only global banknote printer who also produces a polymer substrate. With De La Rue the need to ultimately manufacture a printed banknote is designed into the substrate from the start.
Print designers and substrate designers work in a team, leading to innovative and novel SAFEGUARD® design and security features. These features enhance the visual appeal, design themes and security of SAFEGUARD® banknotes.

There are multiple SAFEGUARD® specific features, including ILLUMINATE (which builds up texture, strong colours and intrigue around the window) and ARGENTUM (which is a specialist silver ink that allows mirror-like free-form shapes on the final banknote).
