ObscureX 8.5" x 11" Security Paper (500 Sheets)


This paper layers our industry leading pantograph hidden message background with a unique technology called BlockOut. BlockOut is an anti-color copy technology that protects artwork, text, photographs and most any other type of confidential information or restricted artwork from unauthorized duplication through the use of certain high-end color copiers.

Attempted copies of a document printed on ObscureX paper on specific models of color copiers will produce a solid black copy, or a variety of other distortion effects (depending on the copier manufacturer).

In addition, any other attempts to scan or copy the document will reveal a hidden message pattern "UNAUTHORIZED COPY" on the duplicate.

The DSS Pantograph is your first line of defense against fraud.

Our next-generation pantograph technology has proven the most effective on the widest range of copiers and desktop  scanners. It is one of today’s most powerful security measures in production printing.

The DSS Pantograph is continually updated to work against the newest models of copiers and scanners.

Block-Out provides an additional layer of security to protect your document against counterfeiting attempts using high-end digital copiers or scanners.
