1.The banknote paper consists of pure cotton fibre, which feels crisp and firm (not limp or waxy).




2.Raised print:
Feel the banknote. On the obverse of the note, there is a series of short raised lines on the left and right edges. To feel the raised print, run your finger over it or scratch it gently with your fingernail. The lines make it easy to identify the banknote, for visually handicapped people. The main image, the lettering and the large value numeral on the front of the banknote also feel thicker.

1.Portrait watermark
The watermark is produced by varying the thickness of the paper. A faint image becomes visible and shows a portrait of Europa (a figure from Greek mythology), the value of the banknote and a window appears when you hold the banknote against the light. If you put the banknote on a dark surface the light areas become darker. This effect is very easy to see in the value watermark. The portrait also appears in the hologram.

The security thread is embedded in the new 10 Euro note paper. The security thread appears as a dark stripe when you hold the banknote against the light. The Euro symbol and the numeral 10 can be seen in tiny white lettering in that stripe.
