Tamper-Evident & Tamper-Proof Solutions
Protect Your Customers – and Your Brand
When you invest in tamper evident and anti-counterfeit packaging, you give consumers more confidence in your products.
Whether it’s a tamper band and seal that let them know nobody else has had their fingers in that bottle of vitamins or a hard-to-replicate hologram or die cut that tell them they’re holding an authentic product, these security measures let customers know they can trust your company and products. These measures don’t just protect individual products; they protect your reputation.
If your brand is looking to incorporate tamper-evident features into your product packaging, Resource Label Group offers a wide range of labeling solutions at your disposal, beginning with:
- Tamper-evident shrink sleeves
- Full-graphic tamper bands
- Full pressure-sensitive labels over top of caps
- Tab labels over product caps
Have a product that requires added layers of security? We’ve got an arsenal of high-tech solutions. Read more about that below.

Three Levels of Secure Solutions
Resource Label Groups offers three different levels of security measures to protect your products:
Tamper-evident solutions: These measures prevent authentic products from being replaced by counterfeit or tainted ones. In other words, they help make sure your product stays in the package.
Authentication solutions: These tools are used to verify each product is genuine.
Tracking solutions: By using RFID (radio frequency identification) and NFC (near field communication) tags, you can authenticate products and follow them from the warehouse to the consumer.
Counterfeiting: Not limited to handbags and watches anymore
Like many legitimate companies, criminal networks and other bad actors are diversifying.
Simply put, no industry is safe. In the last few years, they’ve expanded to:
- Medical devices
- COVID tests
- Personal protective equipment (PPE)
- Nutraceuticals (supplements, etc.)
- Personal care and beauty
- Auto parts
Build layers of protection into your packaging
You’ve heard of the food pyramid. How about the security pyramid? It’s made up of three tiers of protective products and techniques.
Visible security measures such as void materials, tamper bands, materials that destruct upon removal, shrink bands and lid stock provide the first layer of defense. These can be combined to produce a unique brand signature that’s hard for counterfeiters to replicate.
The second level of defense includes variable barcodes, sequential unique IDs, holographic materials, unique laser die cuts or art, microprinting, invisible ink, micro 2D codes, and unique hidden IDs. Consumers may notice some of these measures, but they can’t begin to see all the security elements built in
The most advanced layer of product security includes e-fingerprinting, random IDs, Blockchain, 3rd party validation, Digimarc (unique embedded invisible images), and NFC/RFID tags. With these, you can track your products and prevent them from falling out of the authorized supply chain.
