ROCHESTER, N.Y., Feb 24, 2003 (PRIMEZONE) -- Document Security Systems, Inc. (OTCBB:DCSS), a provider of printed security features which prevent forgery, duplication, counterfeiting, scanning and re-imaging for any type of printed documents, labels or packaging, announced today that it is partnering with The Relizon Company to address certain recently enacted Federal Aviation Administration regulations relating to security issues in the aviation industry.

"Relizon has entered an initial order for over 1 million pieces of Document Security's patented 2002 Safety Paper to satisfy initial customer demand," said DCSS Chairman and CEO Patrick White.

Document Security Systems also announced today that several states, including Florida, have approved its patented "hidden word" pantograph system technology for use in printing prescription forms which are required to be used by medical professionals. In addition, one of DCSS' licensees is now using this technology to print car titles for two states and expects two other states to begin using the technology shortly.

"During the current quarter we have made significant inroads in the introduction of our security paper to new customers," Patrick White said.
