What security features do your checks have?
Do your checks tear from the side?
- Chemically Sensitive Paper - Prevents alteration of your checks.
- Microprint Signature Line - Very small letters that can be read through a magnifying glass, but which appear to the unaided eye to be dashed or solid lines. An "MP" designator is used in conjunction with the micro printed text.
- Security Screen - Very light printing on the back of the document with reversed text not easily duplicated by a color copier or scanning/laser printer.
- Padlock Icon and Warning Box - Warns consumers that Security Features are present on the document. This Icon and Warning Box is authorized only by the "CPSA" Check Printers Stationery Association to check printing companies who have met the above requirements.
- Additonal Security Features - We do not make public in order to provide you with additional protection.
- Our Security Features - Exceed the requirements of all Financial Institutions.
All of our personal size checks tear from the top. Our personal size checks are bound at the top rather than the side.
How many personal checks come in a box?
There are 5 pads (25 checks each pad) which is a total of 125 checks in a box of duplicates. There are 5 pads (30 checks each pad) which is a total of 150 checks in a box of singles.
What is the difference between single and duplicate checks?
Duplicate checks have a carbonless copy of each check attached to the back of each check. Duplicate checks give you the ability to reference a check you have already written.
Are your checks printed on recycled paper?
A small percentage of the paper is recycled, but our experience with recycled paper has not been good. When we have used recycled paper in the past, we had problems with the checks not meeting bank standards for “paper quality.”
We do send our spoilage to be recycled.
Are your checks different from the banks?
The only difference in ordering checks with CheckWorks and the bank is pricing! You save over 50% by ordering your checks from CheckWorks.
Do I get the same low price if I reorder?
Yes, you will get the same low price on all reorders. Unlike most companies that lower their price for first time orders and then raise their price when you reorder, we always keep the same low prices.
What is a handling charge?
This fee covers our packaging and free shipping processing. Delivery is normally stated “shipping and handling” when shipping fees apply.
Do I have to pay taxes?
Taxes should only be paid if you live in the state of California.

A box of duplicates has the reorder form on the fourth pad of checks.

Although, multiple check box orders are shipped at the same time they are not packaged together so it is normal for them to get separated in the mail.
