Security Features

Printed Security

Prevents fraudulent activities by adding additional features to the checks.

Paper Security

The security features are incorporated into the paper and are not printed.

Artificial Watermark
An artificial watermark is a subdued representation of a logo or word printed on paper. Artificial watermarks can be viewed while holding the document at a 45 degree angle. Copiers and scanners capture images at 90 degree angles and cannot read these marks. Available in the Uncompromised Premier Granite/Parchment/Linen and Uncompromised Plus tiers.

True Fourdrinier Watermark
A True Fourdrinier Watermark is a faint design pressed into the paper while it is being manufactured. When held to the light, these watermarks are easily visible from either side of the paper. Copier or scanners are not capable of replicating True Fourdrinier Watermarks. Available in the Uncompromised Premier Hologram Secure, Financial Secure, and 3D Secure levels.

HologramHologram
A hologram is a multicolored three-dimensional image that appears in a reflective material when viewed at an angle. Hologram's are only available in the Umcompromised Premier tier at the Hologram Secure level.

Toner Anchorage
Toner anchorage or adhesion is a chemical coating that fuses the toner to the sheet thus preventing the removal of toner with tape or by scraping. Only available in all the levels of the Uncompromised Premier tier.

Thermochromic IconThermochromic Icon
An image or icon printed in thermochromic ink. Thermochromic inks react to changes in temperature. If you touch or blow on an image printed in this ink it will disappear. The image will reappear after it cools. Thermochromic ink's reaction to temperature changes cannot be replicated on a color copier or laser printer. Available in all three Uncompromised check tiers.

Invisible Embedded Fibers
Invisible embedded fibers are ultraviolet, light-sensitive fibers in the paper stock and can be seen only under black light (ultraviolet light). Available in all three Uncompromised check tiers, except Uncompromised Premier Granite/Parchment/Linen Secure level.

Microprint Endorsement LinesMicroprint Endorsement Lines
Endorsement signature lines on the check backer are lines that are formed by printed words so small that they appear as a solid line or pattern to the naked eye. Under magnification the words appear. This level of detail cannot be replicated by most copiers or desktop scanners. Available in all three Uncompromised check tiers.

Chemical Reactive Paper
Paper that produces a stain or speckles when activated with ink eradicator-class chemicals, making it extremely difficult to chemically alter a document without detection. Available in all three Uncompromised check tiers, except Uncompromised Premier Granite/Parchment/Linen Secure level.

Diagonal Dimensional BackerDiagonal Dimensional Backer
Different spacing of diagonal lines used in the design of a check backer to deter altering by cut and paste method. Available in all three Uncompromised check tiers.

Available in all three Uncompromised check tiers.

 

Chemical Reactive BoxChemical Reactive Box
Uncompromised Checks that are printed on chemically reactive paper have a Chemical Wash Warning Box on the backer. The warning box calls the attention of the check verifier to the color of the check paper. Any discoloration within the box may indicate the check has been tampered with and should stop the verifier from processing the check. Available in all three Uncompromised check tiers, except Uncompromised Premier Granite/Parchment/Linen Secure level.
