Document Security Systems Signs Licensing Agreement with ProdoSafe Security Solutions, Turkey's Largest Supplier of Anti-Counterfeiting Technology.

ROCHESTER, NY -- Document Security Systems, Inc. (AMEX: DMC) ("DSS"), a leader in proven, patented protection against counterfeiting and unauthorized copying, scanning and photo imaging, today announced that it signed an exclusive licensing agreement for its AuthentiGuard(TM) Pantograph 4000 technology and AuthentiGuard(TM) Prism with Turkey-based ProdoSafe Security Solutions. The term of the contract is two years a renewal options.

As one of the country's premier security printers and suppliers of anti-counterfeiting and brand protection, ProdoSafe markets security solutions to the Turkish government and its regional municipalities. ProdoSafe focuses on vital records, official documents, brand protection and ticketing. Its first application using DSS's technology is for the city of Ankara's Ankara Ticaret Odasi ("ATO") and the Istanbul Ticaret Odasi located in Turkey's largest metropolitan area. ProdoSafe's marketing and sales efforts will expand to promoting similar security printing applications for the remaining 80 cities within the country.

ProdoSafe is also pursing additional projects and sales opportunities, including secure documents for the Turkish National Police Department and police academy, lottery ticket applications for the Central Bank of Turkey, as well as consulting with Tekel, the state-owned manufacturer of cigarettes to address issues regarding brand protection.

Mr. Patrick White, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DSS, commented, "Turkey has been plagued by forgery and counterfeiting in the area of consumer goods, vital records, personal identification documents and government revenue documents, such as tax stamps and lottery tickets. Our partnership with ProdoSafe puts us on the ground floor of tremendous opportunity in a country that recognizes document and packaging security technologies are vital to a stable growing economic system, as well as an improved quality of life for its citizens."

Mr. Sahin Topaloglu, President of ProdoSafe, noted, "Our partnership with DSS allows us to lead the way in insuring our country's important and essential documents are adequately protected against counterfeiting and forgery for years to come. Based on our estimated revenue potential once we establish full market penetration in Turkey and the surrounding countries, DSS will reap the benefit of royalty income well into the seven-figure range."

DSS's AuthentiGuard(TM) technologies represent the leading anti-counterfeiting print security and authentication technologies on the market today and are the most effective optical deterrent security technologies that work with current models of digital copiers, imaging systems and scanners.
