American Banknote Corp., New York, announced that its subsidiary, American Bank Note Holographics, has signed a new five-year contract to supply credit card holograms to MasterCard International members.

The holographics subsidiary has been producing holograms for MasterCard since 1984. Its holograms have also appeared on Visa, Discover, and Europay cards.
