“Adding a UV light to our Counterfeit Money Detector Pen gives cashiers a dual test to authenticate U.S. currency,” said Cathy Williams-Owen, DriMark President & Chief Financial Officer. “The light reveals the micro-printed strip embedded in all $5 through $100 U.S. bills printed after 1996. It works the same way on credit cards and checks, which also have a hidden security thread. Coupled with our best-selling anti-counterfeiting pen, which uses special ink to authenticate currency paper stock, the UV light gives retailers, club owners and other cash businesses an important new level of protection at the register.”

The DriMark Counterfeit Detector System lets cashiers quickly and easily verify the authenticity of U.S. notes by revealing several of the hidden security features.
