Can I Order Cheques from Any Company?
Yes, it is possible and legal to order your cheques from any company, including those other than the bank. In fact, the company that primarily prints cheques for most banks is a private independent company that has simply been involved with the banks for years. There are no requirements from Payments Canada (formerly Canadian Payments Association), who oversees cheque regulations, that any specific companies print your cheques, as long as all its current standards and specs are met in entirety, which we guarantee 100%.
Can I Order Cheques Online?
Yes, you can order cheques online. It is a simple and fast process, where you pick the product you want, and either fill in the details on the order page or upload an existing sample (saving you from having to enter everything), then complete the check out process.

Alternatively, you can email us the details of what you’d like to order, or mail a current cheque sample and details to our mailing address, or even stop into our office to order. Either way, we will work with you to complete your order and ensure it’s correct.
Regardless of How You Order Cheques, Two Things Will Happen:
- We will acknowledge we received your order
- All cheque orders will have a no-charge proof created and sent along with an order confirmation. The order confirmation shows the quantity, colour, start number, price and any other options or items ordered. The proof shows exactly what the finished product will look like. You can make as many changes as you want and we will send proofs until you are 100% satisfied. Your order will not be printed until you have approved the final proof.

Additional Questions About Ordering
How Long Does the Entire Process Take?
Typically the process takes 1-2 days to create the proof, 1-2 days for printing, and then 1-4 days for shipping to your location. Start to finish, it should take between 3-8 days if there are no changes or order adjustments. Shipping time is dependent on the method used and your location in Canada.
Do I Have to Have the Bank Test my Cheques?
No. We have had our cheques tested by every major bank and credit union in Canada. Our cheques are 100% guaranteed to pass all bank scanning and processing.
Will Your Cheques fit my Double Window Envelopes?
Not necessarily, but we will ensure that they fit our self-sealing, secure, double-window cheque envelopes – guaranteed.
Can I Have a Live Sample of Your Cheques?
We don’t normally send out live samples if a customer has not committed to using our services, because the cost is prohibitive. However, if a customer has pre-paid for their order and would like to see a ‘live’ cheque, we would ship 10 of the final product for them to test and be satisfied with. We then tweak the layout if need be, and send the remainder of their order at no extra charge.
As determined as I was to not be shafted by my bank through an overpriced cheque service, I was still leary about soliciting this service from the outside. My fears were very quickly put to rest by a confident, reassuring Canadian voice on the other end of the phone. Everything was very professional, no hidden costs and in my hands faster than originally promised. I showed the cheques to my bank to confirm they would be fine and they said they were perfect. I am very pleased. - Michael M.
