The Company


Stensborg is a privately held company located in Roskilde, Denmark 30 minutes from Copenhagen Airport. We have served our clients for nearly 20 years producing holographic masters and imprinting templates for security purposes as well as numerous light controlling applications for technical processes.


The patented Holoprint® technology is wholly owned by Stensborg and was developed in cooperation with industry and research partners as the former Danish National Research laboratory Risoe, now part of the Technical University of Denmark.


Our skilled team excels in the full production cycle of nano and micro surface relief creations as well as graphic printing production. We have our own range of proven machines, prepress materials and resin chemistry.
