Whenever I think of desk set checks, a vision of my grandmother’s home and her desk where they were stored in the drawer comes to mind. It is not that it is an old fashioned concept. Quite the contrary. It is because they have been a valuable tool for many, many years and still are a strong seller. My grandmother had a small business out of her home and the only time a check was written back then was to mail your monthly bills out. Rarely was one written like we do today, at the grocery store or to purchase goods. So to have desk set checks was probably the way most people handled checks. Everything else was cash.
Today, desk set checks have evolved to a degree. They are still as user friendly as ever and they are an excellent choice for small business or the business person on the go. They are great to throw in your briefcase for when you do not have access to the laser printer. They are also a great choice for home use too when you use them like my grandmother did and mail your bills monthly and pay cash for everything else.
Deskset checks can be contained in a nice business check binder that is sized just right for these checks. Plus you will have your checks, deposit slips, and register neatly organized in one place. The checks offer a notation stub so you can notate your payment and detail as well as carry forward a balance, if you choose.
I find them convenient and affordable too. I think you will too. Give them a try and let us know how you like them!
