How To Order Business Checks
Successful small business owners understand the need for good organization and proper controls over financial transactions. One of the first things they do when setting up their enterprise’s purchase business checks. Many start out by purchasing their checks from the commercial banks with whom they do business; after a while they realize that they can actually reduce their cost and increase their productivity through the use of online check printing services.
These online services offer a variety of formats and styles from which to choose and most include complementary branding options as well as complete customization. But personally the what I love about ordering online is the discounts I get on all my banking supplies over the prices that my banks charge.
A wide array of colors and graphics can often be selected with your purchase so look for designs that closely match your business identity. You’ll be able to get specialty checks such as accounts payable, accounts receivable and payroll as well as general all-purpose checks in different sizes and formats.
In order to purchase checks online you must first locate a reputable online printer. Any of the following will be able to satisfactorily complete your order.
- Check Crafters
- Checks in the Mail Business Checks
- Checks Unlimited Business Checks
- Costco Checks
- Deluxe Business Checks
- Harland Business Checks
- iPrint Business Cards
- Walmart Checks
Fill out the order from the selections of business checks first. Each website has its own set of designs from which to choose; try to keep the color scheme of your checks closely associated with any business graphics or color scheme you may currently be using. Once you’ve chosen the style (including uploading your own custom business logo if you desire) and format, you will need to begin entering your account information. The information that you will need to finalize your order:
Routing and Transit number:
The routing number is the nine-digit number located in the bottom left corner of the business check. This information is coded onto every check in order to identify the financial institution linked to your account. This sequence of numbers will always appear at the bottom and to the left of the account number on your checks.
Your account number:
This one is the set of numbers that are printed right after the routing number or in some cases on the right-hand side of the check sequence number below. Simply enter the numbers from your account minus any dashes or spaces.
Your company name and address:
Enter your name and address as well as phone number if prompted by the screen; many online companies offer a standard logo or custom print for your check. Security precautions are taken when fulfilling orders for financial material; certain information may be blocked from the screen once entered.
Enter any customer information that you may desire for your checks and move on to shipping and the payment page. Pay for your order using any of the convenient options available and select your shipping. Reorders simply require you to login and press a few buttons. Believe it or not, that is all there is to it. You could in all likelihood set up your account and place your order in less time than it took you to read this article.
