This Study relates to plastic identification and/or security documents, such as credit cards, driver’s licenses, etc., may include information that is laser etched/inscribed. The laser creates holes or “voids” in a pattern that are visible to the user of the card. Examples include holes that form letters (such as a name and/or birthdate) or images (such as a person’s picture). The voids may only be visible at a certain angle to form an optically-variable device. For example, the voids may be invisible when viewed straight on. Additionally, the laser-formed voids include raised features at the edges of the voids that a user can feel by touch. The raised features include “foamed” laminate/plastic material. (see cross-sectional view below).
