Why should you consider custom branding your Security Seals?
[Part 1 of a 4-part Series on Custom Branding Security Seals]
One question every team member at Seals HQ is trained to ask our clients is - "Would you like to custom design the printing on your seal?"
Why does Seals HQ encourage our clients to custom design the printing on their security seals? To be honest, custom printing a seal requires a lot of planning on our end. We have to draft the artwork, get customer approval, get the factory to mark an actual sample, send to the customer for final approval, plan production, juggle shipments to ensure continuity of supply... Why don't we take a shortcut and just convince our clients to go for stock standard seals with no branding and just a serial number?
If you perform a simple search of the term "security seals" on Alibaba, one of the world's largest marketplace, the platform will return 19,475 results. Most of the security seals offered are hard to differentiate, especially to a lay-person who does not handle security seals on a daily basis.
How then can a company that values security confidently say that the seal they are using is genuinely unique, and not a stock standard seal that anyone can obtain a copy of? How sure are you that the security seal that arrived on a container from overseas is genuine and not a copy that has replaced the original seal on the container?
By adding a custom design on the security seal, you are eliminating the opportunity for anyone to break your seal, steal / sabotage the contents and replace the seal with a copy.
Furthermore, security seals nowadays play an important role in a company's brand awareness. As more and more businesses include security seals in their operations and packaging, the custom design featured on the security seals a proof of their commitment to security.
Custom Designing the printing on your security seal might include Company Logo / Barcode (Linear and 2D) / Custom Text / Serial Number / Custom Colour / Hot Stamped Writing Panels

Single Trip Security Tamper Evident Bags (STEB) are designed to secure contents in the bag and provide indisputable evidence when the STEB has been tampered. Common commodities secured in STEB are high value items such as cash and valuables and in recent years have expanded to examination papers, biological specimens and many more.
You will often hear STEB providers referring to the security level of the STEB between Level 1 - Level 4. Generally as the levels increased, so does the security features of the STEB especially the type of tamper evident tape is used on the bag. Level 1 tape is just a hot melt glue usually found on courier satchels. Level 4 tape (highest level) offers improved features including detection of tampering using liquids and solvents, heat and freon.
A well designed STEB must have some important features that will prevent any attempt of tampering, or will show clearly when a tampering has taken place. Some common methods of tampering a STEB might be:
- Usage of solvents to dilute the adhesive on the security tape
- Usage of heat to soften the adhesive and allow opening the STEB without triggering the tape
- Usage of freon to freeze the adhesive and allow opening the STEB without triggering the tape
- Cutting the edges of the STEB to access the contents and re-welding the bag
- Tearing the security tape off the STEB and replacing with an identical security tape
A well-designed STEB should possess some of the features below:
Custom designs are also very useful when increasing the security features of your STEB. An example would be that we have had clients printing serial numbers on both sides of the STEB. Writing panels can also be printed with a white background to make writing on the bags easier and improve legibility.
If you are a STEB user and unsure of whether the STEB is secure or suitable for your application, contact Seals HQ today and we can assist to assess your current STEB. Contact us via one of the following methods:
In 2018, the top 10 Pharmaceutical Manufacturers achieved a combined sales of $412.52 billion dollars [*1]. Obviously the pharmaceutical industry is a lucrative yet important industry that contributes to the welfare of the general public.
Many pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors have implemented methods to secure their:
- Raw Material
- Work-in-Progress (WIP) goods
- Distribution Network
In this post, Seals HQ will look at what type of Tamper Evident Security Solutions are suitable for each of the stages above.
Whether you store your raw materials in IBCs, Storage Tanks, Roll Cages or Crates, securing raw material is the first step in ensuring that the final product is not compromised.
Whether it is goods waiting for packaging or additional production process, it is imperative to ensure that WIP material is not compromised.
Finished Goods are equally important to secure. Whether it is to protect against pilferage or attempts of sabotage, securing finished goods is important to maintain product integrity.
Whether your goods are distributed locally or exported, ensuring security along the distribution network ensures that product integrity is maintained. Security seals are used to secure pallets, trucks and shipping containers to protect against any attempts of pilferage or sabotage.
