Passport & ID Products


For more than 15 years, Toppan has been developing sales of its highly regarded passport issuing systems together with high-security holographic laminates which are developed, originated and manufactured in-house. Our experience and success in both passport issuing and contactless smartcard manufacture recently led us into the eCover business where in a very short amount of time we have gained several references across the globe. Add to this our capability for manufacturing passport booklets in Toppan Security Printing in Singapore and it’s easy to see that we’ve got it all.

Passport Protection – Info Armour

Info armourGiven the propensity of technology boffins to try to break the secure keys of ePassport (and contactless card) ICs, Toppan has come up with a solution which will remove the risk of them succeeding. Info Armour is a paper shield which when placed next to the antenna (on top or below) will block the signal between a reader and the passport. Tested and certified by FIME, Toppan’s Info Armour is available as an insert, a sleeve oran envelope. We can also supply in a card format for use with contactless smartcards. Info Armour can be 4-colour printed.
