Celebrating 60 Years In Business!

In 1957, one man took an idea about a tiny piece of plastic, and turned it into a new way to store microfilm. Two years later, Thomas P. Anderson, Sr., founded the Microseal Corporation, launching the new company on a journey through an entire new world of film, cameras, and images.

Sixty years later, that story still continues, as Digital Check carries on the company legacy as experts in image processing. Take a look at our company’s history in a condensed timeline, or in the clickable photos below.
