The following security features and more are built into every preprinted (laser
and inkjet) and blank check stock we offer:
A. Micro printing on the front, back or signature line of a check
is text that is only readable when magnified. When copied, or scanned, the text
appears as a solid line even when magnified.
B. Watermarks. Genuine Watermarks are designs pressed into the
paper during manufacturing. When held to light, the designs are easily visible
from either side of the paper. Copiers and scanners are incapable of duplicating
these watermarks. Artificial Watermarks are subtly printed logos or words which
can be viewed at a 45 degree angle. Copiers and scanners capture images at 90
degree angles and will not be able to duplicate these watermarks.
C. Warning Box on back of the check lists the check's security
features and describes how to detect an alteration.
D. Security Screen with the words "original document"
is easy to see but difficult to replicate.
E. A Pantograph in the check background complicates alteration
and unauthorized reproduction.
