Screen printing and duplication
(Welcome to the pantone universe)

The vast majority of silk screen printings are used for design with the use of solid colours.

A screen is made of porous, finely woven fabric (originally silk, but typically made of polyester or nylon) stretched over an aluminium frame. Areas of the screen are blocked off with a non-permeable material (a stencil), this is a positive of the image to be printed, open spaces indicate where the ink appears.

The screen is placed on top of the disc ink is placed on top of the screen and a rubber blade (squeegee) is used to push the ink evenly into the screen openings and onto the disc. The ink passes through the open spaces in the screen onto the disc below. If more than one colour is being printed on the same surface, the ink is rapidly dried under a UV lamp. The process is repeated with another screen and different colour ink.

(You really can judge a person by their shoes...)

Datashur
(The arrival of an ultra-secure USB)

The iStorage datAshur is the world's most secure, easy to use, and affordable USB flash drive, employing PIN code access with military-grade AES 256-bit hardware encryption. The datAshur incorporates a rechargeable battery, allowing the user to enter a 7-15 digit PIN onto the on-board keypad before connecting the drive to the USB port.

All data transferred to the datAshur is encrypted in real-time with the built-in hardware encryption engine and is protected from unauthorised access or from any worry that it will be accessed if your datAshur is lost or stolen. The datAshur automatically locks when unplugged from the host computer or when power to the USB port is turned off.

The datAshur operates straight out of the box, does not require any software or drivers to be installed, and is compatible with PCs, MACs, Linux, and embedded systems. The datAshur delivers drag-and-drop encryption, plug-and-play simplicity and can be used with any off-the-shelf backup software.

The datAshur can be configured with independent user and admin PINs, making it perfect for corporate and government deployment. If the user forgets their PIN, the drive can be unlocked using the admin PIN, which will then clear the old user PIN and allow the user to set a new PIN. The datAshur also incorporates a drive reset feature which clears both user and admin PINs, destroys the data, creates a new randomly-generated encryption key, and allows the drive to be reused.

The datAshur is capable of generating an infinite number of randomly generated encryption keys, allowing the user to reset the drive as and when required. As the iStorage datAshur is unlocked via the on-board keypad and not via a keyboard, it is not vulnerable to software/hardware-based key-loggers or brute force attacks. The datAshur protects your data with a 'Brute Force Hack Defence Mechanism', which deletes the encryption key and destroys all stored data if the incorrect PIN is entered a total of ten consecutive times.

The datAshur is an investment that will last for years. Its rugged, extruded aluminium, waterproof casing is tamper-evident and protects it against physical damage. The internal drive components are also sealed with a tamper-proof coating.

Barcoding and serial numbering
(Tracking sensitive data)

Specialist printing equipment allows for the inclusion of serials to be printed on to removable media as a sequential number, and also from batch files as bar code or Datamatrix machine-readable characters.

Sequential numbering is sometimes required for tracking sensitive data or where media needs to be assigned to an individual. Sequential bar codes enable individual products to be tracked; this system is typically used for product software and secure recordable media used by the the police force and CCTV companies.

Barcodes can be applied to any part of your product, be it media (CD, DVD etc), paper parts, packaging, or labels. With regard to artwork, the barcode should be on the (K) layer of your CMYK design and, for the sake of accuracy, should have a white base. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
