When can I expect my checks after I ordered them?

Your checks will be mailed to you 10 to 14 business days after we received your order. The process could be expedited if you decide to rush your order (additional charges may apply).

How many checks may I write without a fee?

We do not limit you as to the number of checks you can write, nor do we charge a fee per check written.

I don’t write many checks. Can I place a smaller order?

You can order a mini pack, which provides you with 20 checks at a lower cost.
