Check fraud is one of growing problem in the US financial system. As technology evolves, check fraud perpetrators are always coming up with innovative ideas to ‘manufacture’ checks. It costs US banks and consumers billions of dollars annually. The members of the check printing and payment industry recognized the need to improve the security to deter any kind of fraud related to check products. That is why Check Payment Systems Association ( developed the padlock icon.

The padlock icon on the checks indicates that extra security measures have been taken in designing and production of the checks or the material being used. These steps make harder for perpetrators involved in fraudulent activity to reproduce or change checks. On the other hand it helps those parties accepting checks to verify its authenticity. However other preventive measures also need to be in place to make this whole process working smoothly.

Check Payment Systems Association requires presence of minimum three features in order to use Padlock Icon. The Padlock Icon itself printed on the front of the check and its corresponding descriptive verbiage along with the padlock icon and warning box printed on the back of the document represents one feature. Thus, two additional features must be present and designated to satisfy the minimum requirement.

Printech is now certified as authorized user of Padlock icon. Our CheckPlusCFO software is capable of printing Padlock icon on the checks. It brings extra sense of security and up to date standard to the software. For some countries the presence of padlock is mandatory including Haiti where National Bank of Haiti requested addition of Padlock to their checks while printing on blank secure stock using CheckPlus software. Now other users of check plus can take benefit of using the additional security feature. Printech has helped organizations in 25 different countries with cost effective laser based payment solution.
