Cheque and Document Security

Security has become a growing concern as cheque fraud occurs more frequently. Criminals, be it small-time or organized, often focus on cheque thievery because cheques with little-to-no security features are so easy to duplicate and forge. Also, as technologies become more sophisticated, so does criminal methodology.

          Having your cheques printed on the highest security paper with security printing techniques, is the single greatest insurance you can have to protect your capital. The minimal added cost of adding security to your cheques greatly offsets the high risk and cost of leaving yourself unprotected. High security cheques deter criminals by preventing duplication and alteration, as well as adding authenticity and prestige.

          Cheques are not the only document using security methodology. Official receipts, licenses, certificates and contracts also benefit from higher security features. Please see the table below for security paper details and the list to the right for security printing options.
