Easy Validation for Grocers
1. Coupon Industry Council Official Gold Hologram
Along the left edge of the coupon you will see a gold hologram vertical stripe. This is the Coupon Industry Council official hologram.
2. Heat Sensitive Pink “g” ‘s
Along the right edge of the coupon are pink circles with the letter “g” in them. These are heat sensitive. Hold the coupon close to your mouth and breath on the pink “g” ’s as if you are fogging a mirror. The warmth of your breath will make the pink “g” ’s disappear. They reappear when cool.
3. Embedded Watermark
On the back-side of the coupon, use a coin to scratch any white/unprinted part of the coupon; you will see the embedded watermark darken. The watermark images are the letter “g” from our logo.
4. Safety Paper
gThankYou Coupons are printed on light grey safety paper. If a coupon is photocopied, it will usually show “VOID” on it.
