Western Graphics & Data Introduces Guardit™ Secure Packaging

The Most Extensive Line of Secure Packaging Products for the Prepaid Card Industry

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - February 9, 2010) -  Western Graphics & Data, an IGH Solutions company, has introduced Guardit™, a new line of innovative secure card packaging products. The new secure packaging product line encompasses five patented packaging designs that emphasize unique tamper-evident security features to help increase protection against prepaid card fraud.

"The fraud schemes that involve prepaid cards at the point of activation rely on undetected access to the contents of the package," said Dan Hirsch, product manager cards & card services at IGH Solutions, parent company of Western Graphics & Data. "Every product in the Guardit™ secure packaging line features a unique combination of mechanisms for tamper evidence."

The package designs feature internal glue traps, custom die cuts, and special materials that make it ineffectual to reseal the package once it has been opened. For convenience, cards can be activated via mag stripe or barcode, and a correlating number is printed on card and package, for increased security against card "swapping."

The new line of Guardit™ products will be introduced at the Prepaid Expo USA (February 22-24, 2010) in Las Vegas, NV. For more information about Guardit™ Secure Packaging, visit or call 503.222.1731.
