100 Years

Our next century is now.

As Deluxe moves closer to the next century of service to our financial customers, we want to say thank you for your loyalty, for your partnership and for your collaborative spirit over the past 100 years. Your journey has been our journey and we are proud to service America’s financial industry.

With a $300 loan, W.R. Hotchkiss launched what is now Deluxe Corporation on Nov. 23, 1915. Nearly 100 years later, Deluxe has remained a close partner to financial institutions, banks and credit unions. Providing the products that move commerce during the last century has helped position Deluxe for the next century of growth.

The story of Deluxe is deeply interwoven with our country’s banking industry, as our innovation and technology has kept pace with the evolving needs of our customers. From the first checkbook invented by W.R. Hotchkiss to remote deposit capture solutions and e-checks, Deluxe has maintained that inventive spirit to meet the needs of our financial customers.
