I have had the honor and privilege of meeting banknote artist Rick Reed and have enjoyed the extensive collection of fun notes he has produced over the years. Rick is the chief designer for Reed Banknote Company in Sarasota, Florida, although some of you might be familiar with this company under its former name, FAN-T-C-GRAFIX.

Rick’s banknotes span a wide range of banknote styles. His older designs favor an antiquated look and prominently feature old style vignettes. Recently, Rick has worked in the more modern polymer style, designing banknotes with overt security features including hologram security seals and covert security features such as invisible fluorescent red writing which can only be seen with ultraviolet light.

In the future he hopes to fuse the old style notes with the modern polymer technologies. He will be releasing polymer versions of some of his early series of banknotes.
