Dear Fellow Stockholder:


On June 28, 2016, Document Security Systems, Inc. (the “Company”) convened its 2016 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) for the purpose of voting on four stockholder proposals described in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2016. The Company made a decision to adjourn the Annual Meeting until Tuesday, July 19, 2016 to allow more opportunity for stockholders to vote on all proposals, including proposals impacting the Company’s ability to maintain its common stock listing on the NYSE MKT LLC exchange, which the Company believes is vitally important to the Company’s future, and impacting the Company’s continuity of management, which stability the Company also believes to be integral to the future of the Company. With respect to the proxy proposal for an amendment to the Company’s certificate of incorporation authorizing a 1-for-4 reverse stock split, NYSE Regulation has communicated to the Company that its continued listing on the NYSE MKT exchange is predicated on its effecting a reverse stock split of its common stock or otherwise demonstrating sustained price improvement no later than September 15, 2016.
