Black | Reflex Blue | PMS 175 Brown | PMS 281 Blue | PMS 342 Green | PMS 209 Maroon

Bleed Through Numbering
The red Arabic number on your checks and forms will bleed through to the back of the document thus verifying it’s authenticity.
True and Artificial Watermarks
Watermarks are a very effective method of verifying that a document is an original. Security papers are available with artificial and true watermarks. Custom artificial watermarks can be printed with your logo or name.
Security Screened Backer
When copying our Security Screen Backers, the words “Original Document” will drop out. It also complies with the Federal Reserve Regulation CC.
The use of Thermochromic Ink in combination with a pre-printed warning border serves as a highly effective deterrent to criminals intending to duplicate or counterfeit sensitive documents. It also provides a quick and simple method for bank tellers and officials to confirm its authenticity. These inks are specially treated to provide a color changing sequence when heated to a defined temperature range.
Our Thermochromic Ink feature is ideal for checks, gift certificates, events tickets, bank notes, P.O.S. receipts, identification cards, transcripts and more. For questions related to this “breath-taking” feature and other document security measures, please ask us. We’re ready to help protect your business from the ever-growing threat of document fraud.
