Don’t put your customer’s personal information at risk. Use a Privacy Defender envelope to help keep intruders out and your customer’s information secure.

A series of high-profile security breaches at U.S. retailers has accelerated a multiyear transition away from today’s commonly used magnetic strip cards to the more secure contactless smart cards. Privacy Defender envelopes and sleeves help protect the information on smart cards as they are traveling through the mailstream. In fact, a Privacy Defender sleeve can be used as a carrying sleeve for consumer protection when carried in a wallet or purse.

Privacy Defender envelopes and sleeves are designed for third-party mailers, financial institutions or U.S. card issuers. In addition to these markets, other government and health care organizations have seen the benefit of shielding customer information with the RFID-blocking paper used to construct the Privacy Defender envelopes and sleeves. The envelope has been used to protect RFID-enabled Enhanced Driver’s Licenses and health care smart cards containing personal health records.

Block and Protect

The Tension Privacy Defender envelope is created using a multiply laminate paper. This specialized paper is made by surrounding a thin metalized plastic film with layers of laminate, and it helps blocks information from prying eyes and scanners.

With Tension, I feel at rest knowing I can count on getting the product I need for my business. There is a great sense of relief realizing our envelopes are designed specifically for my folder inserter machine and I won’t get calls in the middle of the night because an envelope wasn’t cut or folded correctly and is causing jams.
