| History |


F&E PaymentPros began in 1914 as the F & E Check Protector Company.

Founders Mr. Fesler and Mr. Evans obtained exclusive rights to be the national distributor and service center for an innovative new technology created by Herbert R. Hedman. Mr. Hedman was a pioneer in protecting draft documents from the then common crime of forgery. His flagship product was the first check protector—a device that wrote out a complete, legal dollar amount with Arabic numerals—in a patented process that shredded and macerated the numerals with indelible ink into the fibers of the check stock. In ingenuously produced tamper-proof documents in an efficient, consistent manner and became a popular device in businesses and banks across the USA.
