More About CheqMate Security Features

CheqMate cheques contain unique security printing features to provide clients with high security levels.

One such feature is the internet verified audit number. This number can be checked in a protected area on the PCF website to see if it is valid when compared to other details requested and can also be used to trace the printing source of the cheque if necessary.

These numbers are also used by clients to tightly control their cheque stock issuing.

PCF highly recommend the addition of holograms to cheques since these are considered to be the best single visible deterrent against counterfeiting. Holograms can be designed for each user, or alternatively we can use a special audit controlled existing hologram which is overprinted with the client's logo.

CheqMate cheques use both aqua- and solvent-based security printing inks to protect the cheques from alteration fraud by causing a 'bleed' if attacked by aqua- or solvent-based agents.

Other protection can include micro-numismatics printing, a patent applied for unique security graphics printing technique designed to make fraud attacks easy to detect.

Many other security printing features such as temperature sensitive colour change inks, tamper evident inks, watermarked security papers and ultra violet sensitive inks are all readily available to help protect your cheques, vouchers and other sensitive documents from fraudulent attack.

PCF!secureTo ensure high level 'end to end ' protection, use PCF!secure CheqMate cheques in conjunction with the PCF!secure Laser Cheque printing software and PCF!secure Laser Cheque printers.
