Why Should You Care About Security Thread Paper?

Table of Contents

In a world rampant with counterfeit and forgery, the security of important documents is paramount. As the CEO of GENUINE, I deal with security paper, security labels, and holographic security film on a daily basis. I understand the importance of security features in documents and am often baffled by how underrated security thread paper is despite its critical role in preventing forgery.


Security thread paper is a type of security paper which contains a thin embedded strip running through the paper. This strip can be made of various materials, such as plastic, polyester, or metal, and is often printed with text or a design. The thread is visible from both sides of the paper and can contain fluorescent substances that make it visible under UV light. The purpose of the security thread is to make it difficult for counterfeiters to replicate the document, as the thread is integral to the paper and cannot be added afterward.

Security thread paper is commonly used in banknotes, legal documents, and academic certificates, among other important documents. Its use has significantly reduced the number of counterfeit documents in circulation.


What makes security thread paper so fascinating is its almost chameleon-like ability to adapt. It’s not just a strip running through your money. It can contain holographic images, change color, and even be invisible until held up to light. The continuous advancements in this technology keep counterfeiters at bay, always one step behind.

Of course, our clients at GENUINE understand the importance of this. Take Kevin, a business leader from Saudi Arabia, for example. Averse to compromising on quality, he seeks suppliers that offer top-notch products complemented by exceptional service. He, like many of our partners, trusts Chinese manufacturers for their reliability and attention to detail.

It’s not just about the quality of the document though; it’s about the message that it sends. A document with security thread paper screams ‘I am legitimate, I am important, and I am secure.’ It’s not just paper; it’s a statement. At GENUINE, we recognize our clients’ challenges and remain committed to fulfilling their requirements, fostering lasting relationships, and solidifying our reputation as a market leader.

What Is the Process of Making Security Thread Paper?

The process of making security thread paper involves several intricate steps. Firstly, the security thread is prepared. This thread can contain several security features such as microprinting, color-shifting ink, and holograms. Then, during the papermaking process, this thread is embedded into the paper. This can be done by placing the thread on the surface of the wet paper pulp and then adding another layer of pulp on top. Once the paper is dried, the thread is firmly embedded within it.

The position of the thread in the paper can vary. It can be completely embedded within the paper, partially exposed on one or both sides, or fully exposed on one side and embedded on the other. The choice of position depends on the desired security features and the design of the document.

What Are the Advantages of Security Thread Paper?

The main advantage of security thread paper is its ability to prevent counterfeiting. The thread is a complex security feature that is extremely difficult to replicate. Even if a counterfeiter manages to replicate the design of the document, they will not be able to replicate the security thread, as it is embedded within the paper during the manufacturing process. This makes documents made with security thread paper extremely secure and resistant to forgery.

Another advantage is the flexibility of the security thread. It can contain various security features, such as holograms, microprinting, and color-shifting ink, making it even more difficult for counterfeiters to replicate.


In conclusion, security thread paper is a crucial element in the fight against forgery and counterfeiting. Its ability to be customized with various security features makes it an excellent choice for important documents. At GENUINE, we are proud to be at the forefront of this technology, providing our clients with the highest quality security thread paper tailored to their needs.
