BUFFALO, N.Y., Nov.26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --M&T Bank continues to put more
choices directly in the hands of customers by offering the new option of
custom check card designs.

Through the new service launched this month, customers can show off their
unique style with every purchase by choosing their own images for the front of
their check card. Whether it's a photo of a family pet, a favorite vacation
spot or a child's art project, customers are in control of their own card
design.

Bank customers can either use their own image or choose from a gallery of more
than 270 images provided by M&T Bank, including special designs featuring the
Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, and Dover International Speedway's popular
icon, Miles the Monster. M&T Bank is the official bank of the Buffalo Bills,
Baltimore Ravens, and Dover International Speedway and is the exclusive
provider of Bills, Ravens and Monster Mile check cards.

Another available option allows customers to put their own thumbnail photo in
the upper corner of their check card, for a personal touch.

"Giving M&T customers more choices - from designing their own check card to
banking on the go with our new mobile applications - allows consumers to
create the type of banking experience that fits their own lifestyle," said
Darren King, executive vice president for retail banking at M&T Bank.

A one-time fee of $7.95 applies to a custom card. This fee is only charged at
the initial set up of the image and will not be assessed if the card
subsequently needs to be replaced. M&T Bank reserves the right to approve or
reject any image submitted for a custom card design.

Customers can sign up for the customized card when opening a new checking
account in an M&T Bank branch. Existing customers with an M&T Check Card or
M&T Check Card for Business can also access the new service through Web
banking or at www.mtb.com/customcard. Upgrading an existing card will not
require any change to the account number or expiration date.

Cardholders simply enlarge, rotate, move or flip their image to get the card
design they want in a matter of seconds. The card is then produced and mailed
to the customer through M&T's standard card mailing process.
