Even with the amount of checks written each year on the decline, having checks on hand is still a necessity. I know the amount of checks I write from my personal account has gone down, but my business account is still moving through several hundred checks per year, if not more. Just because you are not ordering checks at the rate you used to, paying too much for your checks is easy to do if you are not paying attention.
Think about how much the banks want to keep your business. They have to stay competitive in so many areas with free checking, online banking and other free services. They hike up the fees in other places to make up for the shortfall on basic services. Look how much it now costs to use an ATM out of your network or from a different bank. Overdraft fees can take your breath away and the price of checks is a travesty.
We have to keep those fees under control to stay on budget so why not start with something you can control easily. Cheap check printing is available with the fine printing you expect in a range of price points to fit your budget. Whether you are looking for a personal check supply or you need to refill your business check supply, paying full price at your bank is not something you need to experience again!
Like the saying goes… Why pay more?
