DocuGard Security Papers

Document fraud is growing at an alarming rate making every industry – healthcare, financial, legal, and even the government – vulnerable to counterfeiter’s fraudulent activities.

When printing prescriptions or any sensitive documents, it is important to choose a trusted security paper that has layered protections to mitigate fraudulent documents.

Since no security feature alone will work all the time, having additional security technologies for copy protection, or authentication is needed more than ever to stop counterfeiters

DocuGard Security Paper offers up to 10 industry-leading security features to protect your business or organization from tampering and forgery.

DocuGard Secure Prescription Paper

Multilayered Security Features:

DocuGard Void Pantograph


The word ‘Void’ or “Unauthorized Copy” appears when the security paper is copied or scanned. As technology continues to improve, you may find that copies/scans can be made without the ‘Void’ appearing–which is why having a combination of layered features is so important.

DocuGard Erasure Resistant Background

Erasure Resistant Background

Our high security papers have a background that consists of a solid color or consistent pattern. If erased, the background will show the color of the underlying paper making any alteration obvious.

DocuGard MicroText Printing

Microtext Printing

The DocuGard name appears in a very small font which can be verified under magnification but will be rendered illegible when copied or scanned.

DocuGard Coin Reactive Watermark

Coin Reactive Printed Watermark

A DocuGard watermark is printed in a special ink on the backside of the security paper. It can only be seen when held at a 45-degree angle and it turns black when rubbed with a coin.

DocuGard Security Features Listing

Security Features Listing/ Heat Sensitive Ink

A complete list of features is printed on the backside of the security paper to alert users as to which features to look for on the script. On our Advanced & Premier secure papers, the features listing is printed with a heat-sensitive (thermochromatic) ink that disappears when copied or scanned.

DocuGard Invisible Fibers

Invisible Fluorescent Fibers

Our Premier security papers have invisible fluorescent fibers embedded within the sheet that can only be seen with a black light. The fibers help confirm authenticity because they cannot be replicated with a copier or scanner.

DocuGard Toner Lock

Toner Lock Coating

An invisible coating on our Premier prescription paper bonds the toner to the paper fibers. If an attempt is made to “lift” printed text off the sheet (i.e. with adhesive tape) it will destroy the paper.

DocuGard Chemical Reactivity

Chemical Reactive Paper

Our DocuGard Premier security papers are designed to ensure that a stain will appear when someone tries to use chemicals (i.e. bleach) to alter or remove information on your documents.
