APParition™ Embedded Image Technology  

Engage with your customers using the latest smart phone and tablet technology.

Embedded images are printed behind existing internal or external pack graphics, invisible to the naked eye, and detectable by most modern mobile devices.

Used for anti-counterfeit or promotional campaigns by tobacco brands, APParition™ technology creates cost effective customer loyalty through consumer interaction with the pack.

A downloadable APP is linked to a website landing page of your choice with total flexibility for promotion; up to eight pay offs per landing point can be created and amended as needed. APParition™ enables pack connectivity in store or in the home delighting your consumer.

Sound files can also be embedded into the design in order that hard of hearing or aging consumers can hear the pack “speak” to them.

Better understand your customer behaviour

  • APParition™ provides an enclosed loop for CRM data collection and analysis
  • Can be used for additional verification and authentication to drive counterfeiters to other less complex brands increasing your brand security
  • The APP can drive your consumer around store to purchase complementary goods via promotion enhancing your ability to upsell in store
