Check Security: Standard Security Features
Protect your checks from fraud
Our checks are manufactured with special security features that make copying or alteration easy to detect! Our checks exceed the standard set forth by the Check Payment Systems Association guidelines. We are licensed to use the security certification icon ("Padlock Icon") on all our negotiable documents. Even though the CPSA calls for two standard security features on each check, we offer:
- Warning Band
- Security Pantographs
- Padlock Icon
- "MP" logo
- MicroPrinted Border Line
- Security Screens
- For Prismatic colors
