Well Above Standard High-Security Checks

With a minimum of eight security features, Uncompromised Check Solutions provide well above the amount of needed features to qualify as a “high-security check.” Among its prominent security features:

Paper Security Features

  1. Invisible Embedded Fibers: Ultraviolet, light-sensitive fibers in the paper stock that can be seen only under black light (ultraviolet light).
  2. Chemical Reactive Paper: Checks printed on this 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.

Printed Security Features

  1. Thermochromic Icon: Used to print an image or icon that reacts to changes in temperature. If you touch or blow on an image printed in this ink it will disappear. After it cools, the image will reappear. A heat-reactive, thermochromic icon that cannot be replicated on a color copier or laser printer.
  2. Warning Band: A warning band calling attention to security features.
  3. Microprint Endorsement Lines: Printed words so small they appear as a solid line.
  4. Diagonal Dimensional Backer: Different spacing of lines on check backer to deter alteration.
  5. Padlock Icon: Allowed by CPSA when checks have additional security features incorporated into the design, production or materials.

Tension has a desire to help us help our customers. You don’t get that with every printer or envelope plant. They go above and beyond consistently to help out in whatever way they can.

Jim Laird , Vice President AccuSource Solutions

Tension stays ahead by knowing what is going on in the industry. Our sales rep stays up-to-date on postal issues and keeps us informed. I’ve never had a vendor do that in the past. Tension also provides us with information on paper pricing. That helps us forecast our budget, not only for our envelopes but for the forms we purchase.
