Security Labels & Tamper-Evident Bar Code Labels

Protect against theft, counterfeiting or unathorized asset transfers with durable security labels.

Improve Tracking. Minimize Risk. Anti-Counterfeit Labels Secure Your Asset Management System

Protect against theft and counterfeiting with Camcode Security Labels. These tamper-evident labels can include custom text, and a bar code or serialized number to allow easy identification and tracking of your valuable assets.  Custom security labels may be customized with your company logo or a very specific size and color.

Security Label Customizable Features


Security Labels are imaged through our Metalphoto® process, where an inorganic silver-halide image is sealed beneath the anodic layer, creating the most durable variable data label available.


The Metalphohto process is integrally counterfeit resistant due to its proprietary sub-surface imaging technology and limited distribution network. The sub-surface, photographic resolution image produced is similar to those found in passports, identification cards and currency.


Customize your security levels based on counterfeit risk. As the levels increase, so does the assurance of authenticity. Utilizing two-dimensional (2D) bar codes or QR-codes and embedded URLs allows the use of a variety of verification options. By adding overt and covert security printing to the Metalphoto process, we create an extremely durable, item-unique anti-counterfeit label.

What do Tamper-Evident Labels cost?

Our minimum order is $300 to $399. Higher-volume orders reduce the per-unit cost – to as low as $0.25 to $0.50 each for an order of several thousand – and exact prices depend on the material construction, size and quantity. Getting a price list and samples is easy; just ask us to request a quote.

Benefits of Tamper-Evident Barcode Security Labels

Using a barcode label with security features is a great way to increase the reliability of your asset tracking system and enhance the security of your high-value assets. These labels provide a number of important benefits for applications that require added protection. Security labels are impossible to remove without leaving clear evidence of tampering behind, discouraging theft and unauthorized transfer. Here are a few of the benefits of tamper-evident barcode security labels:

Visual Evidence of Tampering

Destructible and tamper-evident security labels are designed to show clear evidence of any tampering. If the label is peeled or scratched, destructible labels break apart, making it impossible to remove them cleanly and completely and leaving evidence that someone attempted to remove it. For a tamper-evident label, an additional layer displaying a “VOID” symbol is hidden below the label and on the mating surface that will be visible after any attempt to remove it.

Policy Management and Regulatory Compliance

Evidence of tampering left behind when security labels are removed can be vital in certain situations, such as when handling warranty claims for an item that has been tampered with or mislabeled, and they’re required by some insurance policies and compliance with certain regulations. Some industries, such as those working with the Department of Defense (DoD), have strict regulatory requirements for the tracking of certain items. Security labels are one potential solution for remaining compliant.

Theft Reduction

Because security labels are clearly marked, they can act as a deterrent to theft. This is especially useful for high-value items, such as laptops and other computing equipment that you are managing. Identifying these items with security labels demonstrates clear ownership of the property in a way that cannot be altered.

Reliable Tracking

Tamper-evident barcode security labels can be used with your asset management system to monitor and track your assets, improving the reliability of your asset tracking system. With these labels, you can streamline your inventory counting process and maintain complete visibility into any asset transfers between employees or company locations.

Common Use Cases for Barcode Security Labels

Barcode security labels are used in a number of areas where an additional level of protection is needed. They can be found in nearly any industry, and these examples of common applications illustrate the versatility of a barcode security label solution.

Manage Evidence and Sampling

Barcode security labels are often used by law enforcement to track evidence that is obtained from crime scenes. They are also used in the medical and scientific fields as a reliable way to monitor sensitive and highly valuable samples. Some companies implement a color-coding scheme for their security labels. This allows them to assign colors to departments or assign assets to categories which helps staff perform visual inspections more quickly and keep items in their designated areas.

Protect Valuable Property

Many companies and public facilities need to manage a variety of assets that can be assigned to users and taken out of the building or transferred between work sites or locations. Some examples include government offices, libraries, and schools. Tamper-evident barcode security labels are a convenient way to track and protect valuable assets, such as books, computers, and recorded media. They can also be placed on desks and other furniture within a facility for complete asset management. Using a barcode security label helps ensure that your assets can be tracked securely and improves the accuracy of your asset management process.
