For Organizations Printing Checks In-House, Relyco Is the Expert Source for Fully ANSI-Compliant Check Products and Most Complete Laser Check Printing Solution Sets

DOVER, NH--(Marketwire - October 19, 2010) -  Relyco, a leading provider of value-added business printing solutions, business equipment, and check printing solutions, today announced its comprehensive portfolio of secure business laser checks and the industry's most affordable, in-house turnkey laser check printing solutions.

American Banker estimates check fraud growth will grow by two and half percent over the coming years. And, according to Ernst & Young, more than 500 million checks are forged annually; totaling more than $10 billion is losses.

"We've been providing check products and solutions to our customers for over 20 years and they have come to rely on us for our expertise and industry knowledge," said Mike Steinberg, president of Relyco. "Our ASC X9.B membership enables us to be a leader in this market and deliver cutting edge technologies and form designs that continue to help prevent fraud. Relyco has now branded all of our business laser check offerings, which we are officially rolling out today."

All of Relyco's branded laser checks are kept up-to-date with all approved standards. Additionally, Relyco offers affordable, turnkey in-house check printing solutions with MICR check printers starting at the lowest entry point of $450.

Relyco Business Laser Checks

  • ULTRACHEK® -- Relyco's "entry level" check far exceeds recommended banking standards for due diligence in terms of security with 11 fraud-deterring security features.
  • BASICHEK® -- offers 14 security features to help deter fraud, including Enhanced Toner Adhesion, commonly referred to as "Toner Grip." This special coating makes it difficult to lift or scrape the toner from the page.
  • MAGNACHEK® -- has the same array of built-in security features as the BASICHEK, but offers 3 1⁄2" checks -- ideal for users who are converting to laser from traditional 7" continuous documents where both the check and stub are 3 1⁄2" tall.
  • DETERACHEK® -- offers the most comprehensive array of security features available on the market with 17 fraud-deterring security features, including a Fourdrinier or "true" watermark that has been manufactured into the paper, as well as Thermochromic Ink.
  • FUTURACHEK® -- offers 15 security features, and includes an attractive, custom pantograph available in two color formats. Unique security features include, Enhanced Toner Adhesion, Covert Fluorescent Fibers which can be seen only with a UV light, Solvent Reactive Color Spotting, and a Multi-Language Chemical Void -- making it extremely difficult to alter the checks using a "chemical wash."
  • PROCHEK -- also offers 15 security features including the newest development in check security -- Securatek™ Copy Prevention Technology. This feature makes the reproduction of protected documents virtually impossible on a digital color copier.
  • ULTRASEAL® Pressure Seal Checks -- improves efficiency and increases the security of sensitive information by eliminating the envelope. ULTRASEAL checks have narrow bands of pressure-sensitive adhesive that completely seals the edges of the piece to create a secure, ready-for-mail document.
