SUBJECT: New STARS Warrant Stock
A & R CONTACT: Mary Tralle (785) 296-6912 (mary.tralle@da.state.ks.us)

APPROVAL: Approved by Dale Brunton
SUMMARY: STARS warrants will be printed on new warrant stock as the old supply is depleted. As stock is depleted, other warrant types will also convert to the new stock.

In cooperation with the State Treasurer's Office and DISC, STARS warrants will be printed on new warrant stock within the next week. The new stock contains enhanced security features that will provide additional safeguards against photocopying and other means of alteration.

Significant features of the new stock are:

  • The color will remain the same (light tan).
  • The background will be somewhat different with STATE OF KANSAS appearing in a pattern on the face of the warrant.
  • You will also notice a "warning band" across the top of the warrant advising the person negotiating the warrant to look for a printed watermark on the back of the actual warrant.
  • The printed watermark is an "X" design using "STATE OF KANSAS" with the state seal appearing between each "X".

This change requires no action by agency personnel. As other types of warrant stocks are depleted, those warrant processes will also be converted to stock containing the same types of security features.
