Secure Online Ordering!
Welcome to Artistic Checks' new online ordering system,
otherwise known as e-commerce. We have updated
our system to better serve our online customers.
Now you can place an order for any of Artistic's
products right from your home computer. You no
longer have to fill out an order form, attach
voided check and deposit slip, and place a stamp
on an envelope to get checks. This new process
helps speed up delivery time, and makes the whole
process more convenient for the consumer.
We understand that providing your checking account
details and credit card information online can cause concern. Protecting
your personal and financial details is a responsibility we take
very seriously. To maintain the integrity of information exchanged
through our online order system, we use Secure Sockets Layer technology
SSL encrypts your order information in a manner that
can be decoded only by Artistic Checks. At the minimum, secure sockets
use 40-bit encryption. This means the data you submit is scrambled
in one of over 1 TRILLION possible combinations. Only our company
has the key to determine which combination is used and, therefore,
can read the information you send online.
You can verify that you are accessing a secure server,
both on Artistic Checks' site and others, in a couple of ways. If you
see an unbroken key (in Netscape) or a closed lock (in Explorer)
in the lower left corner of your browser when you access the server,
SSL is active. You can also check the URL line of your browser -
when accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site
address will change from "http" to "https."
Think of how often you have left the check on a restaurant's
table. Many times your name, credit card number and expiration date
are in plain view. When ordering Artistic Checks online, however, you
can rest assured the information you transmit is seen only by us.

word "Dollars," indicating to the Bank
or Credit Union that the check contains
security features that will help them
detect a COPY from the ORIGINAL document.
||The MP icon, indicating that micro-security
print is used in the design. This is
very small print that will break up
if it is photocopied.
