(1) The interior uses traceable anti-counterfeiting printing paper patterned with distinguishable watermark of “double happiness”. It weighs 100g per square meter. The watermark is stereoscopic with distinct tactility. The flexibility, compressive strength, and folding strength are satisfactory. As the widely used anti-counterfeiting printing material, it is also moisture-proof and suitable for long-term storage;
(2) Numbers are printed with red fluorescent anti-counterfeiting printing ink;
