Q: What security features do my Bradford Exchange Checks® include to prevent
and detect check fraud?

A: Our personal checks exceed the highest standards for security and quality established by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the principal standards accepted by all financial institutions. These security features include:

  • Micro-Security Print — Indicated by the MP icon to the right of the signature line.
  • Chemical Protection — Ensures that what you write on your checks cannot be altered by chemical means. If anyone tries, it produces a stain indicating the check has been tampered with.
  • Erasure Protection — Ensures that what you write on your checks cannot be erased. If anyone tries, it produces a stain indicating the check has been tampered with.
  • "Original Document" Security Screen — Deters photocopying or other reproduction of your checks.
  • Padlock Icon — Indicated by the lock icon to the right of the word "Dollars" is your assurance that security enhancements are built in to prevent and detect check fraud.
  • Optional choice of EZShield® Check Fraud Protection or even better, EZShield PLUS® Check Fraud Protection plus Identity Theft Restoration Services. Both of these highly recommended protection programs are offered at an additional charge when you order or reorder your checks. To learn more, click here.
